Teen stars reveal in the upcoming March issue of TWIST, ‘How I Got Famous!’ Demi Lovato: ‘I went on open casting calls. When I was six or seven, my mom and I would check for open casting calls. There’d be hundreds of kids who all wanted the same part. At that point, the odds are against you. But, when I auditioned for Barney, they really liked me!’
Kellan Lutz: ‘I started as a model.’ When Kellan moved to LA after high school, he knew he wanted to act. But since jobs were scarce, he turned to modeling to make a name for himself: ‘I did a few modeling campaigns, one was for Levi’s, another was for Abercrombie & Fitch.’ He finally was cast in TV roles on shows like Summerland and Heroes, and in 2007, auditioned for Twilight.
Justin Bieber: ‘I made YouTube videos. I started singing just for fun. I never did it because I had to. I entered a local singing competition because it was something to do, I never tried to be famous. I put videos on YouTube so my friends and family could see them and see what I was up to. Now I realize this is what I was meant to do, but I just didn’t know it then. It’s sweet!’
