8 Ways Jennette McCurdy’s Actually a Good Role Model

by: on | in Celebrities | 10 Comments

Recently, Jennette McCurdy‘s been plagued with scandal ever since pictures of her in lingerie were leaked onto the Internet. NEWSFLASH: She wasn’t naked in the photos; you could see just as much of her in ’em as you’d see of someone at the beach. Secondly, she’s 21 years old; as in, a legal adult. We get that she’s a Nickelodeon star — for now, anyway. We’ll see what happens with the Sam & Cat drama… — but give the girl a break, will ya?

Okay, now that that’s settled, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to send Sam Puckett our love. After all, it’s Woman Crush Wednesday! Here are eight ways Jennette McCurdy’s actually a good role model:

She's a supportive friend.

After Ariana Grande was accused of cheating on ex-boyfriend Jai Brooks, Jennette texted her Sam & Cat co-star the following message: "Ariana is beautiful. Ariana is often misunderstood, as often happens to those who understand a lot... Ariana is loving, but Ariana is surrounded by those who falsely love. Ariana is beautiful."

She stands up for herself.

Post-KCAs: "I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me. I chose to not go because sticking up for what is right and what is fair is what my mom taught me is ALWAYS the most important thing... It has to do with how nickelodeon treated me. That's all."

She's pro-veggies!

As a spokesperson for Bird's Eye vegetables, she stressed how the nutritious foods could be both fun and yummy. (Something many parents have a hard time convincing their children is true.)

She's charitable in more ways than one.

Not only did she serve as StarPower Ambassador for Starlight Children's Foundation, as well as appear in a PSA for Safe Kids USA, but her second single, "Homeless Heart," was released in honor of her friend Cody Waters, who died from brain cancer. 20% of the proceeds from the track were donated to the Cody Waters Foundation.

She shows love to other music artists.

Whether it's in interviews or on her YouTube channel, Jennette's constantly showing praise to her fellow musicians, including Hunter Hayes, Adele and Selena Gomez.

She's a self-proclaimed geek!

Her addiction to Star Wars should say it all. She celebrates Star Wars Day on May the 4th be with you, named one of her dogs Chewie/Chewbacca and even thanked Han Solo in her Kids' Choice Awards acceptance speech!

She's a kid at heart.

Clue, Monopoly and Life are still some of her favorite board games.

She's thankful for her fans.

Remember the beautiful note she wrote after her mother passed away?

  • Sammy

    She’s amazing and hilarious!


    she is not an angle, she is a young woman who had to work hard to get where she’s at. Her likes and dislikes are different than ours. most of us earthlings would not be happy with that kind of life. I’d go complete ape shit, not being able to go where I wanted to when I wanted too. Might even date a porch monkey of two.(under cover don’t you know). Anyway, she is much prettier with brown hair, but only if the drapes match the rug. and the why she’s going by Xmas we’ll see her porn film.

      If she was an angle, she’d be an acute angle

    Nobody has the right to judge neither label. We all make mistakes, it does not make you a bad person and YES you can still be a good role model.

    If I make a list of positive and negative, in Jennette’s case, positive is always long term and define who she really is.

    Here are a few more reasons why I consider she IS a good role model:

    After all these years Jennette McCurdy has bring joy to our lives, she loves her job and is clear about what she wants to do in the future.

    Even if you don’t know her, you can tell by the interviews and some videos that she’s HUMBLE, actions talk.

    Her confidence and strength of spirit are admirable. She has gone thru many things lately, and after all, she keeps her head up, smiling and willing to continue her path way.

      How can you say she loves her job when she cuts her boss down on Twitter instead of growing a pair and talking to him. And every interview I seen she’s a smart ass specially the one were she would bring the rope to a suicide.

  • m

    A girl who has played nothing but a bully on both shows, stabbed a man who adored her in the back on the internet, told someone who wanted to commit suicide she would bring the rope, half naked selfies for awhile just about every day, has a problem with her boss so goes on twitter and gripes about it so all her followers feel sorry for her is not a role model That’s a bully and there’s enough of them out there. No wonder this country is messed up so bad.

    Very nice article. I wish that sorry worthless idiot James Knight at Classicalite could write a great article like this. He is still claiming that Jennette took “NUDE” selfies of herself. I don’t know why he keeps writing that lie headline. No one ever writes about all the good that Jennette does, like with her almost nonstop charity work that she and Miranda Cosgrove do for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. There is so much more to Jennette that we do not see or hear about. Good things. Things that she needs to be praised for. Oh, please boycott the Classicalite site. They print nothing but false stories and lies.

    A few more reasons why in the endless answer to the question of why Jennette is the best rolemodel:

    She’s also an avid reader and encourages others to read too.
    She recognizes fans instantly and making them feel like the best of friends.
    She is incredibly witty, honest, and provides sound advice. (She has her own advice column!)
    She is very mature for her age. When any drama unfolded, she only addressed it once and moved on.
    She is very passionate about her work since she was 6 and every year she loves it more.
    She is incredibly confident in herself, despite surprising insecurities she mentioned in her latest Q&A.
    She is bold and daring, trying out new adventures all the time. She went up on stage for a comedy show when she mentioned that she was terrified at the thought during her podcast.
