Picks and Pans Review: Jamie Bell Billy Elliot Grows Up
Now 22, the child actor gets tough with Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber in Defiance.
WHAT WAS IT LIKE HAVING DANIEL AND LIEV AS BROTHERS? I grew up in a household of women, so it was exciting. We were roughhousing all the time. I loved it.
HOW DID YOU DEAL WITH FAME AT 13? I had my mom. The day I got back from the Oscars, she said, “Great. Now take out the trash.”
HOW DID OTHER KIDS REACT? They chased me around school. I didn’t know if they wanted to beat me up or congratulate me. I never stopped running to find out.
