Aww. In a new interview, Ringer‘s Sarah Michelle Gellar discusses her time on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and admits that she didn’t enjoy the recognition that came with the iconic role.

In the Bullett article, “Here’s Why We’re Still Obsessed With Sarah Michelle Gellar,” Sarah talks about growing up in Hollywood, and naturally the conversation turns to the biggest role of her career: Buffy Summers. Sarah says (quoted on Luxury):

Back then, if you’d called me Buffy I would probably have been really annoyed. Now, of course, I get it and I’m appreciative of it. But that’s something that comes with maturity, which most people don’t have when they’re 24-years-old.

She also talks about the partying she did when she was younger, and how she worked hard to be a role model:

When I was younger, I was very careful not to… I just didn’t want to be seen with a drink in my hand. People looked up to [Buffy], and she was a character that girls respected.

So many people love Sarah Michelle Gellar for her role as Buffy, and it is admirable how she’s managed the pressure of her career!

    SMG is just such a talented and respectable actress. No matter what I think about any of the shows/movies she’s been in, she always shines in her role. That being said, I will always think of her as Buffy. Sorry Sarah!

    See, why wasn’t she more popular? She should have been as big, back then, as Miley Cyrus was two years ago…for different reasons, of course. Where as Miley put herself in a position where she would obviously be in the spotlight, called a rolemodel, she quickly became something of a brat who called other success stories garbage and made some ridiculously attempts at appearing ‘mature’. SMG couldn’t have known Buffy would be this big, massive, cult classic, yet she sucked it up – not without difficulty, obviously, but the fact is, she didn’t begrudge it to the point that she decided to become loud mouth. She simply let it be.
    RESPECT, girl.
