Miranda Cosgrove only got her driver’s license last year, but the ‘iCarly’ star told Twitter followers (@MirandaCosgrove) that she’s not a natural behind the wheel. Though a tour bus accident in 2011 left the singer and actress with a broken ankle, she overcame her fear of getting behind the wheel and has used the experience to become a safe driver… as long as she’s not trying to park. Cosgrove writes:
I just tried to parallel park and it was so bad that a cop who was passing by offered to do it for me #icantdrive
Miranda Cosgrove appeared on the CBS show ‘The Talk’ on Friday (July 12) to discuss starring in ‘Despicable Me 2’ and how her character Margo goes through her first crush in the film, so Julie asked the 20-year-old if the storyline was something she could relate to.
“Yeah the first guy I ever really liked was Curtis Phillips, in fifth grade, I absolutely loved him,” Miranda explained. “So yeah, I thought about him when I was doing this movie for sure.” Asked if this was the first time Curtis would be hearing this, Cosgrove said, “I’m pretty sure he knows.” Amanda added that Curtis gave her a Valentine in fifth grade and asked her to be his girlfriend.
