Let’s face it: Being a child star is not easy. Luckily, with the guidance and advice of pint-size psychologist Kiernan Shipka, the job can be handled with ease.
In this sequel to Funny or Die’s first installment of “Child Star Psychologist,” the Mad Men starlet — looking all grown up in a pink silk blouse — uses what she learned from her early days as Sally Draper to council kid actors including Looper‘s Pierce Gagnon, Modern Family‘s Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, and Moonrise Kingdom‘s Jared Gilman. And don‘t let her cuteness fool you: Kiernan — er, Dr. Shipka — is clearly a fan of the tough-love approach.
Before you contemplate checking in with Dr. Shipka for your next session, check out the clip below.
