Keke Palmer is opening up about her early days as a child actress.
The now 27-year-old entertainer talked about feeling misunderstood as a child star and more on the Ladies First with Laura Brown podcast.
“At a young age, as a child [in the] entertainer world, your emotions are always the last thing that people care about,” she shared. “I think you get really quickly into being a people-pleaser and trying to be everything that everybody wants you to be. And so I think in a lot of that, you end up being misunderstood.”
“I’ve fought a lot of that most of my adult life, and I’m still new into my adult life,” Keke added. “And I think that’s something that I work towards every day is to not worry about people not understanding me, because I understand myself.”
Keke‘s first acting roles started when she was around 10 years old, and she had a lot of big ones, including Akeelah and the Bee and Madea’s Family Reunion, as well as guest roles on ER, Cold Case and Law & Order: SVU. She then almost had her own Disney Channel show, before landing her hit Nickelodeon series True Jackson, VP a few years later.
If you missed it, earlier this year it was announced that Keke will be starring in an upcoming Jordan Peele movie!
