The Hottie Stop Interviews Sarah Dumont, From Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse!

11.02.2015by: JimmyO

In SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, a group of kids and a tough as hell cocktail waitress have to take on the undead. As Denise, the badass waitress, the lovely Sarah Dumont probably kicks more ass than anybody. The actress is beautiful, yet she can be absolutely believable if she is having to take charge during a deadly situation on-screen. Clearly, she is a perfect candidate for our little Hottie Stop column.

Recently I sat down with Sarah at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. Instead of chatting in the room, we took the interview to the patio and just started chatting. From the second I said hello, I was taken in. She is a no nonsense kind of girl that isn’t afraid to let a little guard down. During our conversation we talked about the audition process, just how amazing Jennifer Lawrence is, and controlling yourself on Twitter.

So you are in a zombie apocalypse, what is that like?

It’s pretty full on. I mean, my character Denise is really badass. She is constantly saving these guys asses, and so I think she does alright.

I think so.

Yeah, she does alright. Have you seen the movie?

I did. I saw it last night. Me and my buddy laughed a lot. And one thing I was wondering as I prepared for this interview was whether you were more like the sister, or your character. And just from stepping on this patio, I can tell you are way more kick ass.

Yeah. I’m playing myself a little bit.

A little bit?

A little bit.

What was the audition process like?

I originally auditioned for the movie like six months before I went in again. Then it was a different script. It was PG-13, and it wasn’t what it is now. So it was a whole different thing, and then I came in and read again. It was literally two week before they started filming and I went straight to callback and then shot with the boys. And then I went straight into stunt training. So it was really quick. And when they asked me to go in again, I was like, well I went in the first time and they didn’t like me, so I don’t see the point. And they were like, just trust me and go. Within a week I was in stunt training. So it was really fast.

Do you like the audition process?

I don’t think anyone likes the audition process.

I remember hearing one actor say they love it, because it is like constant training. 

It is like training. It can be therapeutic because you are stepping into so many different roles and characters and going through so many different emotions. And I’m not particularly an emotional person in my day to day life. So I get to release a lot of stuff through going and doing a really emotional role. I’m crying, and I’m getting all this energy out. But going and preparing yourself, and putting in so much work in, and you do it a hundred times before you get a role. It’s draining. I don’t think anyone likes that so much.

Probably not.

If you got one out of five I would love it [Laughing] but you get like one out of a hundred.

Did you always know you wanted to be an actress?

No. When I was a little girl I thought I wanted to be a rock star or an astronaut [Laughing].

What kind of music were you into?

Well when I was a little girl, I would watch like Britney Spears and I was like, ‘I’m gonna be the next Britney Spears. And I’m gonna buy my mom a big house on Coronado Island and we will be SUPER rich.’ And as I got older I was like, eh, not so much. And then from fourteen to twenty-one I was modeling full-time, and I got sick of it. And since I was seventeen my agent in LA was constantly bugging me and saying you should quit modeling and try acting. And I always thought it was an insult. Like, you don’t think I can make it as a model?! F*ck you, watch me. And then after living in New York, I was like, you are right, I don’t want to be a model. So I just packed up all my stuff and moved out here. I started taking a class and fell in love with it while I was in class. And then I was like, okay, I really love this, if I can get paid for it that would be great.

Do you like LA better than New York?

Yeah. I don’t like the big city with cold weather. I don’t like cold weather. When I was modeling, I was constantly in city after city. I do love Southeast Asia and I love Europe. But I don’t like being in the city when it’s cold. It’s just suffocating. You feel like you are in your little box. When you are outside your boogers turn into icicles [Laughing]. It’s just not a very fun experience. Especially when you weigh one hundred pounds soaking wet. You have nothing to keep you warm. It can be pretty awful. But I’m from California originally so I like the climate. People move here and they feel like they are on vacation all the time. I don’t. I feel like this is normal. I feel like snow sucks balls. Big salty ones.

Yeah. I grew up in that. People talk about getting all the seasons and I’m like, f*ck that.

Everyone is like, there is only one season in LA and I’m like, yeah, the best one.


The best season.

Well we have two. We have a fall thing which is awesome.

And it hasn’t started yet. This is like the first non scorching day in a month. 

[Laughing] What are your some of your favorite places here? You grew up in LA?

I was born in San Diego.

Are you the club type?

I used to be when I was younger. I used to love going out to the clubs because I like to dance. I really, really love loud music. And I still do every once in a while but I’m more of a dive bar type of girl. I actually like to drink at home because it is way cheaper… that sounds so alcoholic of me [Laughing]. But if I’m going to go out and pay for a drink in a bar I like to play games. I like shuffleboard, pool, beer pong at Big Wings. I like darts and giant jinga. If I’m gonna go and pay the ten bucks cocktail, I need some entertainment to go with it. If I do do clubs, there are clubs that I like to go to. I have friends there and that makes it easier. You don’t have to wait in these long lines with a dicky bouncer, which is always good. But I only like to go if I really want to dance. And then I just dance until I’m really sweaty and gross and then I go home. 

You mention loud music. What kind of music do you like?

I like good music. I’m really, really into blues. I like Southern rock. I like a lot of the older country stuff.

Johnny Cash.

I love Johnny Cash. Love me some Johnny Lee Hooker. I’m really into this band right now called St. Paul and the Broken Bones. They are from Alabama, and they are a really great blues band. And they are making music now, and the vocalist is just insane. But I also like EDM and rock. I like pretty much everything but screamo. Classical sometimes is good. If I’m going through the dial when I drive, oh, I can listen to Bach right now. I just like good music. I don’t like shitty music of any genre [Laughing].

So you don’t still have the Britney Spears albums?

No. No. I think every little girl my age went through that faze. I was more of a Christina Aguilera fan, she could sing. I remember getting in an argument in seventh grade with my friend Kelsi Johnson about who was the better singer, Christina or Britney, and I was like, “How is this an argument!?!” [Laughing] 

When you are a kid you can argue over the most superficial things, but at the time it seems like the end of the world.

Oh, I know. It was like a big debate on whether I was going to marry Usher, or if she was going to marry Usher.

Who is closer to reaching that goal at this point?

Neither of us [Laughing]! Sorry Usher, but he is only good from the lips down [Laughing].

So being in this wacky business, do you do the Twitter thing?

I’ve started to do social media more. I mean, I always did Facebook, especially with modeling when you have friends in every country, it is always great to keep in touch because you are changing your cell phone number all the time. So I’ve always used Facebook. And then Instagram and Twitter, I just started using when I moved out to LA.

A lot of people hire somebody to do it, do you…

I’m just not that popular where I need to do that [Laughing]. I don’t think I would ever get to that point either because I’m pretty good about not going on drunk tangents on my Twitter. If I’m gonna go on a tangent it’s usually on a person. 

Yeah, people need to learn that right before you hit that button…

You should maybe read it first. 


You should maybe read it first out loud before you press send. That’s why you have all these celebrities who are like, this is so and so’s management, we are now taking over so and so’s Twitter page. They just f*ck themselves over with saying the wrong things to the wrong person. When you are typing 140 characters, that can be taken out of context. Very easily. But I tweet like random shit.

It can get creepy out there, which is why I try and not post personal pictures and such. People can get really brutal.

Yeah, I don’t want to post a picture of my brother or my mom and have someone say something awful, because I’m going to react to that. People can poke fun at me all they want, but they start poking fun at my family it is going to be game over.

And people do say shit like that.

They are just armed with a keyboard and hiding their shield in the computer screen. I don’t think these people that go and bully on-line, just don’t say anything on-line that you wouldn’t say to someone’s face. Just don’t do it. It’s like if you wouldn’t say that to my face then please don’t say that to me online. It’s equally as hurtful. It’s more hurtful because it’s sitting there and you have to see it everyday. It’s not like it is said then it went away. It’s something that is online and once it’s online it is here to stay.

You’ve been full on acting for how many years?


Who are some of the actresses you look up to?

I really look up to Cameron Diaz and Angelina Jolie as far as career wise. And as women. And Jennifer Lawrence is amazing.

You kind of resemble her by the way.

Oh thank you, I’ll take that to the bank [Laughing]. She is gorgeous obviously, but she is also just very natural on-screen and just does everything amazing. And she seems really down to earth. Either she is a really great actress in interviews, or she is just a really down to earth person it seems. She is very cool and unjaded, if that is even a word.

Doing a horror/comedy, are you into horror yourself?

I like adrenaline, I’m an adrenaline junkie. I like to skydive and I like to ride rollercoasters and bungee jump so anything that gets my heart rate up I like. So I do like watching scary movies, even though I get really scared.

You do?

Oh my God, so scared! But I make myself more scared. I like it, it is like adrenaline.

If you'd like to keep up with the terrific Sarah Dumont, make sure you follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
