Joey King looked radiant in New York City on Thursday morning.

The 19-year-old actress wore a fun black dress with a yellow design that matched nicely with her bright Christian Louboutin’s patent leather pumps.

The beauty – who rose to fame playing little sister to Selena Gomez in the 2010 movie Ramona And Beezus – appeared Thursday on the Today show where she was interviewed with Oscar-winning actress Patricia Arquette, her co-star on her upcoming Hulu show The Act.

Patricia stars as as Dee Dee Blanchard, who allegedly had Munchausen by proxy and hoodwinked people into believing her daughter Gypsy Rose was seriously ill.

To this end, Dee Dee – a real person – purportedly took drastic measures against her child, including making Gypsy have operations she did not need. 

Gypsy eventually got together with her boyfriend Nicholas Godejohn to murder Dee Dee in 2015.

Gypsy Rose and Nicholas are both in jail now – she for 10 years, he for life – and their story was retold in the 2017 HBO documentary Mommy Dead And Dearest. 

Patricia recalled on Today that her children saw this documentary and found it so disquieting that they tried to dissuade her from starring in The Act.

‘They had seen the documentary about this family, and I was like: “Hey, I’m thinking about playing this part of this mom who has Munchausen by proxy,”‘ she said.

The True Romance star dished that her children said: ‘”Don’t do it! We know that story! Don’t do it, Mom, don’t!” I was like: “Guys, after all these years, I’m just gonna remind you, I’m an actor. It’s pretend! I’m not acting it out on you!'”

Joey explained on Today: ‘I think what attracted me to this role was the challenge of it, really, and I also – it’s kind of a lot of pressure to play someone who’s alive in real life, and I really liked the idea of that kind of challenge.’

She revealed that ‘legally I wasn’t allowed to’ speak to the real Gypsy, and ‘I don’t even understand all the reasons’ for this stricture.

Patricia, who won her Oscar for her role in the drama Boyhood, noted that ‘Michelle Dean, our writer-producer had – she actually wrote the Buzzfeed articles and is in the documentary and had many, many interviews with her.’

Joey was seen in New York outside Today wearing her morning show outfit – a pinstriped maroon blazer top and a pair of matching slacks.

Her current ultra-short hairdo is the result of her performance as Gypsy on The Act, which required her to have her head shaved.

While out in Manhattan on Thursday, she tweeted: ‘I JUST HEARD THE ACT ADS ARE NOW IN TIMES SQUARE IM SHOOK I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IM SO EXCITED’.
