My mother signed me up for it when I was 6 and by the time I was 10 or 11, I was the main breadwinner for my family. My family didn’t have a lot of money, and it was the way to get by, which I think helped me achieve some degree of success.”

Early life

Jennette McCurdy was born Jennette Michelle Faye McCurdy on June 26, 1992, in Los Angeles, California. She grew up in Garden Grove, California in a “dysfunctional Mormon family” consisting of her mother Debbie, father Mark and older brothers Scott, Dustin and Marcus.

In 2020, she launched “The Empty Inside Podcast” and created a “one-hour dark comedy one-woman show” called “I’m Glad My Mom Died”, which sold out at the Lyric Hyperion Theatre in Los Angeles.

Personal life

In 2011, “The Wall Street Journal” published an article by McCurdy titled “Off-Camera, My Mom’s Fight With Cancer” in which she wrote about Debbie’s battle with cancer and offered advice on living with a sick parent. In 2019, Jennette revealed in a “Huffington Post” article that she struggled with anorexia and bulimia, writing, “My eating disorder started when I was 11. As a child actress working in Hollywood, I quickly learned that by staying physically small for my age, I had a better chance of landing more roles. Unfortunately, I had a loyal and devoted companion ready to help me with my burgeoning anorexia: my mother!” In the article, Jennette said she went to therapy after her sister-in-law convinced her that she needed help, but after the therapist suggested Jennette enroll in an inpatient treatment facility, McCurdy stopped seeing her. Jennette said of this period: “My throat bled a lot and I had blood vessels in my eyes from vomiting. Once I lost a tooth after the regurgitated stomach fluids wore away my enamel. Another time I passed out on my friend’s bathroom floor from dehydration. Finally, I decided it was time to seek help again.” At the time McCurdy wrote the article, she had been in recovery for two years.

Jennette began drinking heavily just before her mother’s death, and she has stated that her alcoholism was a major reason for her decision to stop acting and that she needed to “fight the demons at her own pace”. In a 2021 interview with People magazine, McCurdy spoke about the physical and emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of her mother and said, “The only reason I’m healthy today is because my mother isn’t here. I don’t want to forgive her anymore. The goal now is acceptance. And with that, I have a level of contentment that I never thought possible.”

McCurdy has been nominated for three Kids’ Choice Awards, winning Favorite TV Sidekick for “iCarly” in 2011 and 2012; her other nomination was Favorite TV Actress for “Sam & Cat” (2014).
