Jennette McCurdy Was Included In The “Time 100 Next” List
Two weeks ago, the “iCarly” star posted about being included on the “Time 100 Next” list, as well as praising Molly Shannon for writing the piece. “Thank you @time. I’m honored to be included on your #timenext100 list. I screamed when I heard the news and immediately drove to Disneyland, where I bought a pair of Halloween pants with glow-in-the-dark ghosts on them to celebrate. every time I wear those Halloween pants, I think of this incredible honor and I feel very cool, and then I look down and realize I’m wearing glow-in-the-dark ghost pants,” the caption began. “And a huge thank you to @theofficialsuperstar for writing the piece. molly is a gem of a person, twice as lovely and magical as you hope and expect her to be. she’s been tremendously supportive of my work.”
The caption went on to explain why McCurdy feels luck to know Shannon and about a recent meeting between the two. “We got breakfast recently and had hard boiled eggs and toast and swapped intimate stories and laughed and I just felt so effortless and comfortable around her, despite the fact that my face was mildly peeling from over-applying my tretinoin the night before,” she wrote. “As Molly wheeled away on her cute little bike with a basket I thought, now that is a GOOD person. I’m lucky to know her ♥️”
