Amanda Michalka attended the 18th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel on April 29, in Los Angeles to help raise money at the charity auction.
The 20 year-old star rubbed elbows with Cindy Crawford, Paris Hilton, Lea Thompson and Melissa Joan Hart, among the celebs at the fundraiser.
The 78violet singer’s next project is the big summer flick Super 8 with Elle Fanning and Kyle Chandler.
While a lot of the plot of JJ Abrams movie is still secret, Michalka did talk to Nylon about working with him and Fanning.
“JJ [Abrams, the director] is one of the coolest guys I’ve ever worked with,” she said. ” He’s never done anything with a bunch of young kids before, so it was fun to work with him because everyone thought he was so funny.”
” And Elle Fanning is the sweetest, most adorable thing ever,” Amanda shared. ” Although maybe I can’t say she’s adorable, because she’s way taller than me.”
AJ’s last Hellcats episode with sister Aly Michalka, “Warped Sister” airs Tuesday, May 3rd. Super 8 is in theaters this June.

“Hellcats” star Aly Michalka, the sister of AJ Michalka, posed for a very classy photo shoot featured on Venice Magazine (November 2010). The 21 year-old talks about the future of the 78violet duet and their new album, songwriting, being a teen in Hollywood and her co-star Ashley Tisdale.
Here are some highlights from Aly Michalka’s Venice Magazine interview:
On pursuing art after her teens: “As I got older, I just became more passionate about the art. Writing songs. Performing. Doing good quality work as an actor. I’m not interested in artistic pursuits for money or fame or accolades. I just want to make art that will hopefully make people feel inspired.”
On the new sound of 78violet: “Though the melodies are pop melodies, the songs are very heavily influenced by rock and definitely have a rock sound, not just a pop sound. And, yes, our music has changed a bit over the years as we’ve gotten a little older and started to have more freedom and more to say. My sister and I are both singer-songwriters. We do not want to be pop stars.”
On staying away from the club scene: “I’ve been fortunate enough to be blessed with a great family life and I do think that, in general, the choices you make do have something to do with the way you were raised and the friends that you have around you. We all surround ourselves with good friends that we really trust and we all have a focus that we don’t lose sight of. Personally, I really don’t like the club scene. All the loud noise and people yelling. I’d rather be in a more intimate setting, in my pajamas having a nice dinner.”
On her Hellcats scenes with Ashley Tisdale: “There is a level of comfort that we share with each other that definitely helps. And, coming from similar backgrounds in the industry, we both have the same work ethic and approach the work in the same way. I love that we have a friendship on the set and off. It’s nice to work with people you still want to hang out with after we wrap.”

AJ Michalka is starring in the upcoming Disney movie Secretariat. The young actress is playing Kate Tweedy, a hippie, war protesting, flower child of the late 60s and early 70s and daughter of Diane Lane’s Penny Chenery – the woman who literally bet the farm on a horse to win the Triple Crown. Michalka spoke to TeenHollywood about what a great time with this character, the wardrobe, has high praise for Lane and what her and her sister Aly are doing about new music for 78violet.
On Kate’s independant spirit: “I don’t feel like the role is that different than me. I wouldn’t say I was a war protester or a massive hippy chick. I don’t know if I’d go to the degree that Kate went to but I’m definitely free-spirited, very independent and very strong-willed and that’s very much like Kate throughout the script.”
How cool was the wardrobe? “I loved the wardrobe. It’s so fun being a part of a period piece. The last film I did (The Lovely Bones) also took place in a similar era so it was pretty neat to tap into that again.”
On meeting the real Kate: “Yeah. There is a real Kate Tweedy and the fact that I was able to portray a real person, then actually hang out with her off set was amazing. We would go over to her friend’s house and watch old footage of Secretariat racing and have dinners. It was just a surreal experience. Kate is a wonderful woman so, the fact that I look up to the real Kate as a human being is really cool. I don’t think a lot of actors can say that about someone they’ve played necessarily.”
On working with Diane Lane: “She’s incredible. It was amazing working with her. She’s very motherly, very endearing and really professional. I learned so much from her as an actress just watching how she worked. Everyone who was the family in the film became a family off screen. I think that shows on camera. It shows how close we all became. But Diane is definitely a mentor and so beautiful. I was honored to play her daughter.”
What’s up with 78violet? “Yeah. We are definitely still heavily into the music side of things. Aly is obviously filming ‘Hellcats’ but we have not strayed from our music. We’ve been busy promoting films; Aly having Easy A out and me having Secretariat coming out, we’ve been focused on both but we’ve not stopped writing and we actually recently wrote and recorded the theme song for ‘Hellcats’. It’s called ‘The Longhair’ and the first time you’ll hear it is on the 6th episode so we’re really excited about that.”
Check out all of AJ’s interview here.
Secretariat hits the big screen on October 8th.

78Violet sisters Alyson “Aly” Michalka and Amanda Joy “AJ” Michalka were stalked by a scary man named Caesar Brantley, who tried to sneak into the gated community where the sisters live. AJ and Aly already had a restraining order against the guy and he was finally arrested and charged with a misdemeanor for disobeying a court order and felony stalking.
The girls reportedly were not home at the time and are currently OK. But this is not the first time Aly and AJ have to deal with a potentially dangerous stalker. A man was also arrested in 2008 for bombarding them with phone calls, letters, emails and online threats. Scary!
