Yo Peeps, I’m back for reshoots. I’m still a little bit jet lagged and my feet feel like they are moving when I’m standing still but it’s great to be back. We had a great flight on Air New Zealand. It was so much fun. I forgot how cool that airline is. I only slept like 2 hours but I watched several movies and ate. We got into London on Monday and it was a little gray and cold but today was sunny and beautiful. I don’t actually start filming until next week but I went out to the studio yesterday to see the producers and for a wardrobe fitting. It was great to see Matthew, Tarquin, David and Adam again. I got to put on my Hit Girl Hero costume and it still fits!!!!!!! Yay! I’m a tad bit taller but not a lot so I can just pick up where I left off. We are going to get to do a couple of really cool scenes that we have not shot yet and will do some minor reshooting on one of my BIG Action scenes. I have not seen any of my cast mates yet though. They will be there next week. We start rehearsals on Monday. I cannot wait! I’ve been working out every night and doing all of my crunches and push ups so that I can make Hit Girl come to life again. It’s soooooooooo much fun to be able to do that character. She requires a lot of me but I LOVE action. It’s going to be really great when you guys get to see her in full action. It’s truly CRAZY! Nic Cage won’t be here for reshoots but Aaron Johnson (Kick Ass), Chris Mintz Plasse (Red Mist) and Mark Strong (Frank) will all be here. We will have a great reunion! I’m going to tour more museums this week. I love the Natural History Museum and my favorite one is The British Museum. I’m currently studying Rome in Ancient Civilizations so I’m pretty sure they will have some pretty great stuff to see that relate to my studies. Wow, I’m so blessed to have this great opportunity to be in London and see all that they have to share with the world.
I’ll keep ya’ll posted on how the reshoots are progressing as they happen. Stay tuned in! and Always Remember…….YA’LL ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, where to start???????
I know I have been away for a loooooooooong time but it’s been busy for me since getting home from London. I went to Utah in January for the Sundance film festival where my film 500 Days of Summer premiered. That was a blast. It was great to see everybody from the film and I finally go to see it. You guys are gonna LOVE this film. Joe and Zooey are so great in it. It really ROCKS!
Sooooooooo, where do I start? School is busy and I am so ready to finish for the year. I just saw the new layout for this site and I LOVE it! Holli, thank you so much. It is so cool. I mean, HIT GIRL looks so cool! I had almost forgotten how much fun that film was to shoot. I love everyone on that project. Guess what? I’m going back to London this weekend to do some pick up shots and a few reshoots. I can’t wait. It will be fun to get back in my purple outfit! I’ll be wearing my “fringe” again too as Mindy and that is always fun. They glue these bangs on me and then I look soooooo different. It’r really cool though and I love that I get to be so different in this film. Reshoots are gonna ROCK! I’ll keep ya’ll posted on how they progress. I wonder if I’ll need my boots in London this time? Does anybody know what May is like in London town? I bet it’s rainy but maybe not too rainy. LA is warm and all sunshine right now and that makes me happy but a weather change is always fun. I’ve been very busy auditioning and doing some additional recordings for My Friends Tigger and Pooh but other than that it’s been all school and friends. I went to a fun party for my friends Bat Mitvah last weekend and it was cool to see everybody but I got sick with a cold. I’m recovering well but I’m NEVER sick so this took me by surprise. My nose is so stopped up and my voice sounds funny but at least it is improving. Well, I better go for now. I promise to try to write more often. Until later…Always Remember….

Yo peeps, sup? Well, I have been so busy since returning to Los Angeles that I have not had a chance to blog, so here goes…..
We wrapped Kick Ass on the 11th of December and I boarded a jet back to LA on December 12th. It was really a sad day for me. I love every minute of my films and I’m always ready to wrap but this one was special. We had a huge wrap party and before it we had a small, intimate cast bon voyage dinner at NOBU in London. I had the BEST yellow tail sushi that I have EVER tasted there. At the end of it they gave us these cute little bento boxes with chocolate deserts. Matthew’s wife was there too. She is a super model. How cool is that? Unfortunately, I didn’t get to meet her directly but I saw her at the table. We had such a great time. I can’t wait till I go back to London to finish the film. We still have quite a few shots to pick up. One is a scene with Aaron and I and we are flying around so that will ROCK! I have not spoken with anyone since arriving home for the past 3 weeks but I’m sure I’ll speak with them soon. My mom has emailed back and forth with John Romita and his cute wife Kathy so that’s cool. John drew me a super cool pencil drawing of me in my Hit Girl uniform and signed it and I screamed for like an hour!! My mom is having it framed so that I’ll have it alway and forever. I think in the near future you will be able to see some photos of me as Mindy along Nic Cage as Damon. There are some cool father, daughter pics and I’ve been told they will be released by the people over at Ain’t it Cool News. I read an article written by a guy named Baz. He writes for a newspaper in London called The Daily Mail. He had some really kind things to say about the film and some really cool things about me too. So, Baz, if you are reading this….thanks a million. Hopefully, I’ll see you in two weeks at Sundance Film Festival. Yep, you heard it right here. I will be attending the Sundance festival in 2 weeks for the premiere of a film I shot last summer called 500 Days of Summer. That was a blast and I cannot wait to reunite with my friends from that one. I have another film that is at the Slamdance festival which is right across the street from the Sundance festival and we have a tight schedule there. 500 Days will premiere at 6:15 p.m. and Not Forgotten will screen at 8:00 that night and I’ll be doing a Q&A afterwards. I love Q&A’s because it is a time where I get to meet the people that are seeing my movies and I can answer any questions that they might have.
Other news….hmm..well, school started back on Monday and I am busting my bum getting my work done. It is good to be back in a routine though. Christmas was terrific. I got a Wii game and a purple Betty razor motor bike and it is THE COOLEST! It looks just like a real vespa. I canot wait till I am 16 and i can get a real Vespa. That will be sick! Well, gotta go now. I’ll keep you guys posted with the Hit Girl and ChloÃ« worlds as they happen. I am hoping to see Aaron Johnson and Mark Strong since they also have films at Sundance. Oh, and the MOST important thing I didn’t mention is that while I am in Utah I will get to ski again and that is one of my favorite sports.
Always Remember…..YALL ROCK!

Yup, I’m still here! I was supposed to be on a plane flying back to LA today but the film got a little bit behind and I am now scheduled to be here until sometime next week. It’s all good though because I am still having a lot of fun.. I had an exciting weekend onset. All of the guys playing the friend of Kick Ass are in town to film and Lindsy is here too (she plays Dave’s girlfriend). I saw a little bit of them but not a whole bunch because I am not in their scenes. It was a huge set this weekend though over at Pinewood. It rained pretty hard and the place got pretty muddy. Eww. The set looked amazing though. They built a whole New York Street with a comic book store and like a diner. It looked really good. I lived in NYC for a year and I think it looked pretty real. Anyway, they have all gone back to the states now (except for Lindsy because she and Aaron have a couple more scenes to do). I have to go in tomorrow to rehearse one of the big action scenes that we have already shot. We are going to reshoot a few parts of it on Thursday so we just need to rehearse it and get it perfect. It is such a huge scene and a very difficult one so they want to make sure they get it just right. I’ll shoot more on Saturday and then again Monday and Tuesday and then I am supposed to travel home to LA next Wednesday. I hope the schedule holds. I’m ready for some sunshine and warm weather. London is great but LA is calling my name!
Oh, yeah, more news….Guess who I got to meet this weekend? John Romita. He is the illustrator for the Kick Ass comic book. Wow, this was cool. He is so nice and so easy to talk to. He and his wife and son all came to set and we all hung out for a whole day. My brothers and my Dad are all jealous because they love his work and they didn’t get to meet him. His son Vinnie is so nice. I showed him around the set and he watched a bunch of scenes and he even got to be in a scene in the film. I’m not in the scene but I’m so excited for him. I can’t wait to see the drawings that he make of me as Hit Girl. His work is so, so ,so good. It will be fun to see his drawings of me. I have seen one about a month ago but he says there are plenty more to come. Seeing myself drawn as a comic book character is weird. Well, weird in a good way. I went into a studio today in London to record for a Disney toy for my character Darby in the show My Friends Tigger and Pooh. It was fun and great to get to talk to the peeps at Disney Character Voices all the way from England. I have gone in a couple of times to do this since I have been in London and it has been a great experience. Well, I gotta go now and go to sleep. School is pretty difficult now because I have been doing some milestone lessons (these are things I do about every 4 weeks and they take FOREVER!) Anyway, school will start early in the morning and then I’ll go to set. Later………
Always remember…………YALL ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aww, I’m home after a long day onset and I’m a little bit sad tonight. I had my last day with the Action Unit on Kick Ass today. We had a great shoot today and I did some really fun scenes. We did a scene that we have been shooting for the entire week tonight and it is so cool. You guys are going to love it. We literally took the entire scene straight out of the comic book. I’m not sure what issue it was in but I’m pretty sure it was issue 3. I met so many new cool people. The scene was a tough one but we did it. The worst part is that I’m gonna miss my stunt guys sooooooooooo much. They are the coolest guys in the world. They gave me a really cool t shirt that only the stunt team got so it’s really special. I’m gonna wear it tomorrow when I have my day off. I one more really cool action day left but today was the last day of the action unit shoot. We have worked with 2 teams, the first unit and the action unit. I cross over between first unit and action unit almost every day. It is crazy. This has been to most exciting few months of my life on this shoot. I am scheduled to wrap on Tuesday. That makes me sad too but I’m getting homesick for LA so I am happy that I get to return home but sad to leave my new film family. Aaron and I have a fun scene coming up on Monday and then we get to move from Elstree Studios over to Pinewood Studios. I love Elstree because I feel like I know every inch of it now! Pinewood should be cool too. They are filming Prince of Persia over there right now and we will be there too. They have built a big Comic Book Store set there and I am shooting a couple of my scenes over there too. The teenagers arrive sometime this weekend so it’s gonna get really busy around here soon. Tomorrow I’m going shopping here in London because I have not had a lot of extra time to do that or to see much of this great city. I’m buying some gifts for my castmates and Director and Producers so that will be fun. After that I’m going to a festival they have set up in Hyde Park. It looks so cool. Maybe I’ll get some pictures and HOlli can post them. We’ll see. Well, I better go. I’m about to go to sleep. I wish I could share more about my shoot day but you’ll have to wait a bit longer. I really can’t wait to see this stuff after it is edited. The action is SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait for the next comic book. Oh, one more thing. Guess who I get to meet next week? The man who draws the comic is going to be at Pinewood (I have been told) and I will get to meet him. I don’t know if Mark Millar will be back but I bet he will be. He’s funny and I hope to get to see him again. Till next time…..Always Remember…..YALL ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
