Logan Lerman has a new interview with the Wall Street Journal to promote his new film, ‘The Perks of Being a Walfllower’. He talks about why he began directing, his biggest movie inspiration, and acting with Emma Watson. He says, "the first movie that really grabbed me was 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. That is when I got passionate about filmmaking."
Lerman went to Beverly Hills High school and honed his acting skills in a string of movies ranging from Gamer (with Gerard Butler) to The Percy Jackson movie.
Lerman talks about whether the ‘Perks of Being a Wallflower’ fans make him nervous, to which he replies, "Not really. It was stressful enough just trying to do justice to the material. I didn't think about any extra pressure."
He also adds that working with Emma Watson was awesome, saying, “The script has some intense stuff going on, but the cast is young and had fun and became tight right away."
Then, Lerman is asked about whether he will ever start writing and directing scripts, and he replies that he may in the future, but since he started acting as a hobby and it worked out, he may stick to it for a while. “I do a little bit of writing but my confidence in my writing has gotten away from me a little bit," he said. "It's really weird: I started acting as a hobby, and I've managed. Now it's a profession."
