JoJo and Emma Roberts Star in "Aquamarine"

Posted by Fara Kearnes on March 3, 2006 4:15 PM |

Jojo picTeeny-bop singer-turned-actress JoJo seems like she's been around forever even though she's only 15. Her first big screen film "Aquamarine" opens today March 3.

In the film, she plays Hailey, a tomboy who is about to move to Australia, away from her best friend Claire, played by Emma Roberts. The two girls discover a mermaid named Aquamarine (Sara Paxton) flopping around and trapped in a club house swimming pool. It seems Aqua has run away from her pop, a sea god who wants her to marry a "mer-man" she doesn't love. The gist of this family movie is, that if the girls can help the genie-like mermaid find true love, she'll grant them their fondest wish of staying together.

"I tried to make my character Hailey different from who I am. I'm not shy and she was kind of uncomfortable with herself; she covered up with baggy clothes," says JoJo, whose real name is Joanna Levesque.

She told zap2it.com, "This was a year ago that I shot it, so first of all, I was 10 or 15 pounds heavier. I had no make-up on. I was wearing very ill-fitting clothing and I was watching myself with my hands over my eyes ... I was like, 'Dude, I need to look cute in my next movie.'"

JoJo's young music fans will be surprised to learn she doesn't sing in the film. "It was a conscious decision. I don't want you to think it's because I think I'm too good, because I'm so not too good," she says.

"I wanted to just keep my acting and singing separate. That's why I chose not to play a singer in films or sing in films. In acting I'm going by Joanna 'JoJo' Levesque. In singing, just JoJo."
