Each year at the Golden Globes, the lucky child of an industry legend is selected as “Miss Golden Globe”(or on occasion, Mr. Golden Globe) to bring out the coveted awards and guide each victor backstage. Selection to this role is an incredible honor and has served as a launching point for young actresses and actors like Laura Dern, Joely Fisher, Freddie Prinze Jr. Dakota Johnson and Rumer Willis. This year, the honor was bestowed on Greer Grammer, the 22 year-old daughter of Kelsey Grammer and makeup artist Barrie Buckner.
As she handed out awards throughout the night, she wowed in a stunning pink gown with gold embellishments by Lorena Sarbu before slipping in to a gorgeous sky blue frock for the after parties. The young actress appeared on the MTV show Awkward as flighty high schooler Lissa, and graduated from USC in June 2014 with a degree in theater.
Before the Season 4 premiere of Awkward, the starlet and I chatted about the show and she took time to answer our 7 Questions.
1. You’re at a magazine rack and can only pick three titles. Which ones do you choose?
Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, cause I still read that, and probably Teen Vogue.
2. If your TV carried just three shows or networks, what would they be?
ABC, all the shows I watch are on ABC, MTV, and the CW. I love Scandal, Once Upon a Time, Nashville, and Gray’s Anatomy. When I say I love ABC, I LOVE ABC
3. What are three things you have to have in your fridge or pantry?
Mac and Cheese, any kind Easy Mac or Stouffer’s in my fridge. I love Mac and Cheese, Iced Green Tea from Trader Joe’s, and popcorn. My roommates and I live on popcorn.
4. What has been your strangest fan encounter?
I’m at Disneyland all of the time, and this girl comes running up behind me and pops into my face and yells, “Greer!!!” I thought it was someone I knew, and I couldn’t remember who she was. I thought I’d gone to elementary school or middle school with her and I just wasn’t remembering her, so I was like “Hey!!” and then she gushed, “I’m a huge fan, can I get a picture?” Of course I said yes and I was so relieved because I was so scared that I had forgotten someone.
5. Tell us about a time when you were starstruck.
I am star struck a lot. I’m a huge theater nerd, so Kristin Chenoweth has been my idol since the day before time. I love her and I’ve met her twice. The first time, I was at the Four Christmases premiere and I was hanging around with Josh Hutcherson and I was freaking out to him, “Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, that’s Kristin Chenoweth!’ And he said, “I did a movie with her, do you want me to introduce you?” And I got so nervous and said “No, no, no…I…can’t…meet, I can’t meet her!! I’m too nervous.” So he dragged me over and said, “Kristin, this is my friend Greer, she’s a really huge fan.” And I didn’t want to be “a fan;” I didn’t want to be crazy. And she was so sweet. And I was so weird.
The second time I met Kristin, I got to go backstage to her dressing room when she was doing Promises, Promises on Broadway. I was shaking the entire time. I embarrassed myself and I love her.
6. What is a movie you can watch over and over?
Tangled is my favorite movie. I love Tangled. I know every word, I know every song and I love Rapunzel. I love all of the Disney Princesses, but I’d love to be Rapunzel. I watched The Little Mermaid the other night and I simply adore Ariel, but I really love Rapunzel; I wish I was her.
7. What would you be if you weren’t an actress?
A Disney princess. I’m just joking! Sometimes I like to think that I’d own a spa or a health food store. And I’d like to be a cook. I can’t cook, but I’d like to be on Food Network and be a cook.
