Luckily, things improved when she was able to make connections on the iCarly set, thanks not only to Miranda but also Nathan Kress (Freddie) and Jerry Trainor (Spencer).
“I had great friends in Miranda and Nathan, and even Jerry, who was a bit older than us but was wonderful in trying to cultivate that kind of, to your point, the younger environment,” she said. “It was better in that aspect—having some friends my age was helpful and healthy. Yeah, I think that’s how I feel.”
Jennette, who is currently focused not only on her podcast but also on writing and directing, has previously made it clear that painful memories surrounding her acting career led her to quit pursuing that path. In a March episode, she said she “really resented my life because I didn’t like the projects that I was a part of.”
For her part, Miranda has expressed kind words in the past about working with Jennette. “My best friend is Jennette McCurdy, who was on iCarly with me,” she told the BUILD Series in 2017. “We live really close to each other. We have sleepovers all the time. Like, I literally see her every other day.”
