Madison Pettis Q&A

Jan 27, 2010

With her new movie, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2, coming out on Blu-Ray and DVD February 1, we got a chance to chat with cutie Madison Pettis about voice acting, dogs and a possible future singing career … ?!

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2Madison Pettis

Kidzworld: You got to be the voice of LaLa in Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 – what’s she like?

  • Madison: LaLa is one of the daughters of Papi and Chloe. LaLa is very energetic, excited, hyper … and a bit of an airhead!

Kidzworld: Do you like dogs? Do you have your own pet dog?

  • Madison: I love dogs! I don’t have a dog of my own right now because I’m really busy working and traveling and I don’t have the amount of time it takes to give a dog the special attention it deserves. But I hope to have one someday! But I’m allergic to some dogs, so it would have to be a hypo-allergenic one!

Kidzworld: Did you do anything special to make your voice sound more “puppy-like”?

  • Madison: Well, I’m pretty bubbly and perky in real life…a lot like my character LaLa. So I just had to exaggerate that and channel my inner puppy!

Kidzworld: What’s your favorite thing about doing voice work?

  • Madison: My favorite thing about doing voice work is it doesn’t matter what you look like! I can go into the recording booth in my comfy sweats!

Kidzworld: What is your favorite scene from Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2?

  • Madison: My favorite scene is when the puppies slide down the slide into the mud puddle!

Kidzworld: What is your favorite memory from working on Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2?

  • Madison: Getting to meet in-person the real puppy LaLa that I play in the movie—she’s so cute!

Kidzworld: Considering that you have great voice power (!), do you want to go into singing one day?

  • Madison: Yes, I definitely plan to have a singing career sometime in the near future! I’ve been working with a vocal coach on technique because I want to make sure I do it properly.

Kidzworld: Tell us about your new show, The Haunting Hour! Is it totally creepy?

  • Madison: I guest-star in an upcoming episode of The Haunting Hour called “The Black Mask”, which is based on the R.L. Stine books, so it’s totally creepy! I was a little freaked out just reading the script! It’s not “blood and guts” scary – it’s more of a suspense and sit-on-the-edge-of your-seat creepy! You wonder if what your eyes are seeing is actually real, or is your mind playing tricks on you. That’s the kind of scare I like! My episode will air sometime this spring.

Kidzworld: When you’re shooting these scary shows, do you ever get really freaked out?

  • Madison: I got really freaked out when I read the script. For the actors shooting it on set, it’s not quite as scary at that moment because you already know what’s about to happen. You don’t have the suspense that the audience feels when they watch it on TV. But it’s still fun to act like I’m completely scared and freaked out and scream really loud!

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
