When Miranda Cosgrove starred in “iCarly,” she wasn’t prepared for the enormous responsibility of being seen as a model.
“I feel like when I was little and people called me a role model, I think it was always very flattering, but it’s also scary because when you’re a little kid and someone calls you a model, it’s like, ‘Oh no, I don’t want to disappoint anyone,’ the former child star told PEOPLE magazine on Wednesday.
“But you’re also not fully trained and you don’t really know how to be a model,” she shared. “So there are some great things about it, but it’s also a challenge. “
