I Was a Child Actress—and Survived
Full House and Cosby's Jurnee Smollett, Now Starring in Roll Bounce, Explains How She Made It to 19 Scandal-Free
"My mom is my rock. She kept me grounded. And now, if I'm out too late, it's not just her calling, My oldest brother will be on the phone, 'Jurnee, where are you? When are you getting home?'"
PREPARE FOR TEMPTATION
"Naturally, you are at parties with drinking and stuff, and people offer you things. But my mom told me that if someone offers you liquor, don't take it. I trusted her, and she made sense."
DO THE LAUNDRY
"I wasn't always on the set. I would play with my siblings [four brothers and a sister], skating or swimming or just doing chores—cleaning or washing clothes. I knew how to cook when I was 6."
LEARN THE BIZ
"I was involved in the deals and knew what I was getting paid. Mom always asked, 'What do you think about this role?' So many people are like, 'I worked my whole life, and when I got to this age, I had no money.' It's a business. That's why she included me."
DON'T BE JEALOUS
"People still come up to me about Full House. The Olsen twins were really cool. But I don't want anyone else's fame. I never think, 'I wish I was so-and-so." I like me. I like my life."
