iCarly's Jennette McCurdy Spills Details of "Hellish" Acting Career and Battles With Her Own Team

She said she made up her mind to “leave this career that my agents and my managers and everybody I know is telling me I’d be crazy to leave. ‘How can you walk away from this? Are you kidding, do you have any idea how many people want you have?’ But it didn’t matter because I didn’t want it—it just wasn’t true to me. And walking away was really difficult, but it was something that I needed to do for my mental health and for my overall peace. And it was difficult. I didn’t know what to do with myself when I didn’t have things that always dictated my identity around anymore.”

Ultimately, she found that once she started pursuing other career avenues, including writing, directing and podcasting, she was no longer “living this lie.” Jennette added, “I’m living a life that’s in accordance with who I am, and that feels a million times better.”
