HOW IT FEELS TO BE A DOLL
The actress, 21, weighs in on the Penny Pingleton doll (manufactured by Play Along, available this July) inspired by her role in this summer’s Hairspray.
“It’s weird to see the tiny face features. I was, of course, nervous about it. I’ve seen dolls of people that—not only do they not look like them, they look a little creepy. But I feel very lucky that they made my doll look pretty. It doesn’t look very made-up or overly drag-queeny. They made my smile look nice. My mom called when she saw a photo of it. She was screaming, ‘You know you’ve made it when they’ve made your likeness into a doll!’ She was ecstatic. My parents will keep one for me. I won’t keep it in my room. That would be creepy. Or what if I, like, brushed her hair at night? That would be taking the doll a little too far.”
