Harley Quinn Smith attended the ASPCA’s Los Angeles Benefit held at a private residence on Thursday (October 20) in Bel Air, CA.

The 17-year-old actress was there to support the ASPCA’s Los Angeles Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic and talk to Celeb Secrets on the orange carpet of course! “I’m just so happy to be able to celebrate animals and animal health. Being able to provide medical services to animals like being sprayed and neutered; I think it’s so important,” Smith told us exclusively. 

While known for her acting, Smith told us that she’s “focusing on finishing high school first and hoping she will be able to share upcoming projects in the future.”

Being in spotlight is hard, but being a high school student, in our opinion, is harder. From endless homework to social drama, our readers definitely have their hands full.

“High school is a pretty difficult time for many reasons, but during high school people are constantly bullied online and in real life,” the high school student tells us. “It’s important to stay confident with yourself, be proud of who you are, and not let anybody else’s opinion of you demean yourself worth in any way.” Her advice for our readers? “Stay confident with yourself!”
