Max Records: Acting is a hobby
Max Records has said he considers his new acting career as just a hobby.
The 12-year-old star of Where The Wild Things Are said he was relaxed about his new-found fame.
"It's a hobby, not a job," said Max.
He went on: "My friends are cool with the whole thing.
"I've only had one person recognise me and that was in a pumpkin patch, in Portland where I live. If there's a place to recognise someone, then it's a pumpkin patch."
Spike Jonze - who directs the family film, which was filmed in Australia - added: "The interesting thing is, Max and his family don't look at acting as some career.
"They all talked about it before they decided to do the movie and said, 'Let's do this for this experience' and the four of them came and lived in Australia."
Max also recalled his most memorable moment on set - when one of the enormous monster puppets fell over.
"It was right when we started shooting and my dad was on set," he said. "It was like the funniest sight ever, just this big massive strong creature walking and then falling on his face. My dad burst out laughing and then he was like 'Oh s***, that guy could have been hurt really bad'."
