EXCLUSIVE: 9 Things You Need to Know from Our Q&A with Kaitlyn Dever
Miles Teller told us to look out for her, and so did Ansel Elgort, and now we’re finally listening. With not one, but TWO movies hitting theaters back-to-back weekends this month, 17-year-old Kaitlyn Dever is kicking MAJOR butt. So, we caught up with the young actress to talk about everything from her new flicks to social media to her hunky co-star, Ansel, obvi.

In Laggies, you play the no-filter wild child. What drew you to that role?
"That exactly. I loved the fact that she was so spontaneous, and there was no filter in her brain; she was just a fun teenager who didn't care about what people said about her or the way she dressed. The way she dressed, I loved all the clothes that I wore in the movie. That's sort of what drew me to it because I would sort of have to step out of the box with her, step out of my own comfort zone."
"I'm not like that at all. I'm not the partier who raps Snoop Dogg at a high school party; I don't really go to high school parties. I think the sort of not-really-caring factor — like, she doesn't really care what other people think — I have that sort of personality. And also the dry, sarcastic, deadpan sense of humor is what this character shares with my personality in a way."
