Maisie Williams is one tough cookie! Besides being a total badass on Game of Thrones, the 17-year-old is sticking up for teenagers everywhere in Dazed magazine.
Maisie feels that adults often look down at teenagers, explaining, “People think we’re f—king stupid and we don’t know anything about anything. It’s really degrading… I get a lot of adults who are like, ‘You don’t know s—t,’ and it’s like, ‘You don’t know s—t. You have no idea what it’s like to be a 17-year-old.”
While Maisie is sticking her guns on the topic, one thing’s for sure: she’s not going to be an “arrogant d—khead about it. “Whether I like it or not, I’ve become influential to people. I don’t wanna be liked just because I’m pretty. That’s f—king boring, and I’m not that,” she said. “Lots of young people in the industry try to play it cool, but it just makes them look like arrogant d—kheads. I’d much rather be liked because people realize that I’m standing up for myself.”
