Kiernan Shipka is Smarter Than You

Kiernan Shipka is nearly 11 and is acting in one of TVs greatest shows Mad Men. Also she seems to have a better grasp of the English language than me.

Below is a snippet from an interview which you can read in full here.

Q: Do you think you’d act like Sally if your mom was like Betty and your dad was like Don?

A: I think Sally’s actually much better than I would be, given her situation. Sally is really, really reserved. Divorce can be terribly stressful and confusing. Add to that an emotionally unresponsive mother and a physically absent father, I think Sally’s actions are pretty tame. If I was experiencing Sally’s situation, I would be a complete terror of a kid.

She uses big words!
