The DUFF hits theaters THIS Friday!! How exciting is that??!! I am so excited to see it again!!
My review will be up this Friday too, from when I saw it early last month (what an amazing opportunity that was!!)
Anyway, today I'm here to share with you some of Kody Keplinger's highlights from the Los Angeles, CA premiere!! So wish I could have been there...darn you work, and darn me for having to be a grown-up all the time!! Anyway, next time!
Here are a couple of questions I got to ask Kody about her red carpet experience!
The Romance Bookie: Was there anyone you were extremely starstruck to see?
Kody: Technically, I didn't see her - but apparently Aubrey Plaza was in the theater for the LA premiere. Multiple people in my group spotted her, but they didn't tell me until after. Which is probably for the best because - as a huge Parks & Recreation fan - I might have had a stroke. And she wasn't the only Parks & Rec star in the vicinity while I was LA...
The Romance Bookie: That's so awesome!! Bummer you didn't find out until after!! Anyway, next question: What has been the craziest thing to get used to throughout the whole movie adaptation process?
Kody: The craziest thing has probably been getting used to doing press. I've done blog interviews many times, but up until recently, I'd only done a handful of phone interviews. Now, all of a sudden, I've had to do many more phone interviews and even a few on-camera interviews. It's very exciting, but also a totally new experience for me. I'm so used to being able to write out and edit my answers. I'm a writer! It's how I roll! Speaking in interviews is a totally different ball game, and it's taken some getting used to. But I think (hope?) I'm starting to get the hang of it.
The Romance Bookie: You're doing a great job!! Congratulations Kody, and I am so looking forward to seeing The DUFF again!! It was so funny and, while a bit different from the book, I wouldn't change a thing about it!!
Kody also shared with me some exclusive pics from the premiere in LA!
