It seems like just the other day that Joey King was celebrating 2 million followers on Instagram, which quickly turned into 3 million, and then 5 million.
Today, the 18-year-old Kissing Booth star sits at a cool 6.9 million followers – something she refers to as “crazy”.
Talking with W Magazine recently, Joey opened up about the sudden rise in followers on her social media account and how she’s keeping her feed authentic to herself.
“Everyone I’ve met or who follows me has been really lovely and respectful,” Joey says. “Although the number jump was so shocking, I was really, really excited.”
She adds, “I loved making this movie so, so much, and I was hoping people would love it as much as I did. I didn’t know it was going to do so well or take off. So when it did, and I saw my numbers and the boys’ numbers grow, it was so thrilling to see that people responded to it in the way that we did.”
Joey is also striving to keep her Instagram true to who she is, and not change because of the growing number.
“It’s important to me to remain true to myself on Instagram, and it’s also important to have certain things be just for me,” she shared. “My last Instagram post [at the time] is me with a face mask on in the shower, and I don’t know what I was doing [Laughs].”
“It felt like something weird and private and personal, but part of me thought it was super funny and it would be worth sharing. I try not to overthink it because I’ll just make myself crazy.”
Joey adds, “Looking at my Instagram, I’m pretty happy with how I balance my social life and work. I also don’t want to be too self-promoting; I think the reason people follow me and why I love Instagram is because I am myself.”
