Tavi Gevinson Is Going To Be An Actress

So, Tavi Gevinson is super cool. Cooler than me, and cooler than you. Sorry. You might as well accept it. Now, to add to the awesomeness that already is Rookie Mag, she’s headed to Loooooos Angeles (WHAT’S YOUR DREAM) to spread her wings from fashion to the silver screen. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Gevinson, who just signed with United Talent Agency, will play a role that isn’t unfamiliar to her:

Gevinson and the agency have closed a deal for her to make her acting debut in writer-director Nicole Holofcener‘s untitled new film at Fox Searchlight. She will play Chloe, an only child who never received much attention from her parents, forcing her to grow up faster than her peers.

OK, so maybe not so much with the parent stuff, but anyone who’s been profiled by the NYT at the age of 16 might know something about growing up fast.

    Hopefully the movie will compliment her before-her-time wisdom and intellect. That role sounds really dull and flat and done a million times, but who knows…maybe having somebody as rad as Tavi could bring life to films like that. I just love her and I want to support anything girls as articulate and confident as she is do!
