With her career at an all-time high, it’s unsurprising that Jenna Ortega isn’t interested in dating anyone at the moment.
The 20-year-old has become a household name after her iconic performance as Wednesday Addams in Netflix’s adaption of the beloved Addams Family.
And it's pretty much a given that the actor will be very busy as she could potentially be starring in another four seasons of Wednesday.
Show runners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar revealed in Variety that they'd planned at least 'three or four' seasons of the spooky show.
Millar teased: "We certainly have a pretty clear runway of what we want to do in future seasons.”
And Jenna has more projects lined up in the future, with her latest film, Scream VI, about to hit our cinemas soon.
So, it's understandable that romance isn't a priority right now.
And Jenna herself seems to think so.
"Maybe I am too obsessed with my work... but the idea of relationships stresses me out” she admitted in a recent interview with Elle.
Adding: “And also being that vulnerable with someone and having to get to know someone that well and having someone see you for all that you are. My brain knows that I don’t need to think about that right now."
The actor did briefly speak about a previous relationship during a recent episode of Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast, which she said ended after life got 'too hectic'.
She said: "I was in a relationship for a couple of years but I stopped it when things got too hectic.
"And it had nothing to do with them, it was just strictly. I just couldn’t manage all the things."
Jenna continued: "If there's one thing I'm going to focus on -- which is probably something I need to change -- it's going to be my work."
But ultimately, she didn't find herself being 'very interested'.
However, the X star revealed that she feared people getting to know the real her.
"I am so fearful of disappointing the people in my life, or even people in public. I want to live up to people’s expectations, which is something that I need to get over, but I’m also scared that, I don’t know, maybe someone will get to know me too well and realise that I’m not all that.” she said.
Whilst we might all be impressed with her incredible performances on the big and small screen, the actor said that she felt new people in her life would disappointed by the reality.
She added: "The kind words that I hear that they say about me through other people are unbelievable to me. I feel like just the people in my life see me in a way that I don’t really see myself."
