Movie Info

A teen movie star attempts to overcome her addition to alcohol and salvage what's left of her career after passing out on the red carpet at her big Hollywood premiere and being sent to recover with her upbeat aunt in Indiana. Morgan Carter (Jo Jo) is only seventeen years old, but she's already on top of the world. But so much fame so early in life can yield unpredictable consequences, and when Morgan is sent to the hospital with alcohol poisoning, it's clear that she isn't ready to deal with the pressures of stardom. Whisked away to rehab as the paparazzi clamors for a picture and the press predicts her downfall, Morgan is sent by her mother and concerned manager to Indiana, far away from the temptations of Hollywood. Once there, the troubled starlet reluctantly starts to reconnect with her quirky Aunt Trudy (Valerie Bertinelli), who offers just the kind of unconditional support that the young girl needs to get her life - and career - back on track.

Audience Reviews for True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet

Pretty cheesy and predictable, but cute.

Like many Lifetime movies, this one is ripped from the headlines of troubled child stars abusing substances and jeopardizing their amazing talents and careers for momentary pleasures. Valerie Bertinelli, once a child star herself, stood out in this movie. Though the subject is intense, this is really a lighthearted skimming with lots of teen angst and awkwardness thrown in. JoJo handles the lead role well. Not a bad way to spend an evening.

A pretty good teen drama. Alcoholic and drugged starlets should see it so maybe they could learn a lesson from this XD
