You look like that girl-- : a child actor stops pretending and finally grows up by Lisa Jakub( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Lisa Jakub's humorous, irreverent account of her unusual and occasionally awkward life as a successful child actor and what happened when she walked away from it all in search of a more authentic life. From the moment Lisa's career began at the age of four after being discovered in a Toronto mall, normal became a relative term. From missing her first day of school to work on an orange juice ad, to discovering that classmates were charging money to show kids where that girl from TV lived, success was always a double-edged sword. By eleven, she'd moved to Los Angeles with her mom, where her career quickly snowballed, landing roles in such iconic movies as Rambling Rose, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Independence Day. She went from living out of suitcases in motels to buying a house before she was old enough to drive a car. But not everyone appreciated her professional success; her demanding work schedule got her kicked out of multiple high schools. By the age of 22, she realized she was living a life that no longer felt authentic, and the cost of pretending was just too high. Even a brief but rewarding stint behind the camera making a movie that was showcased at the Cannes Film Festival, and the freedom of acting with friends in the cult classic George Lucas In Love wasn't enough. Lisa knew she needed to leave Hollywood, stop striving for this dream that wasn't hers, and start writing the script for her own life"--Publisher's description
