After starring on Zoey 101, Victoria Justice cemented herself as a tween icon when she took on the lead role in Nickelodeon’s Victorious. But since then, Justice has had a hard time landing major roles, and she’s definitely not as visible as she once was. Here’s why.
Hollywood is a world of niches. Once stars become known in a certain genre, style, or medium, it’s hard for them to be accepted in other kinds of roles. Victoria Justice has two of these career roadblocks in her way. First, she was a teen star. Second, she’ll forever be linked with Victorious, the show that made her a household name.
By 2012, Victorious was a huge hit with kids, and Victoria Justice was, too. So much so that Nickelodeon decided to cast the actress as the lead role of a theatrical film – Fun Size. Unfortunately, Fun Size got just 25% on Rotten Tomatoes, and Justice’s fan base didn’t flock to see the movie either. It earned just $9.4 million at the box office.
