At age 20, Jenna Ortega already has an impressive resume and plenty of life experiences. She caught the acting bug early on in life and begged her parents to let her pursue it professionally. Since then, she’s starred in TV shows like Jane The Virgin, You, and, most recently, Wednesday. Her performances in films like Scream, X, and Yes Day have also allowed her to travel around the world. Naturally, with Ortega’s life experiences, she sometimes feels as if she’s lived more than two decades of life.

Jenna Ortega reveals that people have always felt she’s older than her true age

Despite being a child actor, Ortega insists that she wasn’t forced to act older than her age. Instead, the actor began feeling older than her age even before she started to make a name for herself in Hollywood. While speaking with Olivia Rodrigo for The Face, Ortega explained that she’s always been a bit of an old soul. This was something that people began pointing out to her very early on in life. “I wouldn’t say that I felt I had to grow up fast,” Ortega explained. “It’s kind of something I’d already done. Since I was eight years old, people have been calling me an old woman.”
