Miranda Cosgrove graces Teen Vogue’s June/July 2012 issue and inside, in the accompanying interview, the actress, singer and songwriter, who turns 19 on May 14, dishes on her iCarly character, her upcoming roles, Channing Tatum and her ideal boyfriend.
Described by the magazine as “a role model for the iGeneration”, the Orange County girl had her film debut in 2003, as Summer Hathaway in School of Rock. However, it was her role of Carly, the lead character in the Nickelodeon TV series iCarly the one that made her the second-highest-paid child star on television.
Speaking about her iCarly character, Miranda told the magazine that, “It’s weird when your biggest success is something that you’re also trying to break out of.” What about the future of the show? “We don’t know if we’ll do more episodes. I’m looking at this as the last season. Though we said that last year,” Miranda says.
The lovely actress tells Teen Vogue that she can borrow from the iCarly wardrobe department just about anything she wants as long as she promises to bring it back. “I’m constantly stealing these biker boots from the stylist. She’ll text me and say, ‘I know you have those boots,'” Miranda confesses.
Dishing on her future plans, Miranda says that after flirting with NYU, she plans to enroll at USC in the fall, where she’ll major in film. The actress ultimately chose to stay in L.A. to be closer to work. As on her next role, Miranda told the magazine that, “I definitely think about that. It’s hard to find something that’s a little bit edgy but that everyone can still watch. I’m waiting to find something right.” Well, she also admits she wouldn’t say no to a romantic comedy with Channing Tatum. “I think he’s the dream costar of the moment,” Cosgrove says.
Asked whether she is not even a little, teeny bit rebellious, Miranda jokes that, “Not other than running my car into poles!” However, she confesses that, “There’s a part of me that wishes I was that.”
What about her ideal boyfriend? Does Miranda want a rebellious guy? “I just want someone who lives in L.A. I’ll meet someone and they’ll be traveling all the time. Someone here — that would help a lot,” the actress reveals.
