In a recent interview, Ariana Grande’s Sam & Cat co-star Jennette McCurdy admitted that she occasionally felt “jealous” of how the singer was treated.
In her memoir, McCurdy, 30, discusses her time at Nickelodeon. She asserts that although she had to decline other jobs while working on iCarly, Grande was given permission to miss the production of Sam & Cat in order to participate in other shoots and events.
Leading Up to It
McCurdy said she quickly became ‘jealous’ and ‘pissed’ with Grande as a result of the singer being able to forego shooting in order to attend other events.
The last straw, according to McCurdy, came when her former co-star confessed she had spent the previous evening playing charades at Tom Hanks’ house when she arrived at work. It was difficult not to compare her professional path to Grande’s.
