Miranda Cosgrove has a monster movie franchise hit on her hands thanks to the success of "Despicable Me" and its sequel, but that doesn't mean she can't be nostalgic for her "iCarly" days. Specifically, the crazy food they ate, like spaghetti tacos.
"That's one of the main things I miss from 'iCarly'!" she said on a visit to TODAY Tuesday while answering Twitter questions from fans. "I have not had any spaghetti tacos since!"
Of course, these days Cosgrove can afford all of the way-out meals she might want: the "Despicable" series and those adorable Minions from it have become a huge phenomenon, with the film franchise earning nearly $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office. Good news: The actress teases there will be more.
"Yeah, I'm pretty sure they're going to do a 'Despicable Me 3,'" said Cosgrove, who voices oldest daughter Margo in the films, and just finished her second year studying at the University of Southern California.
"And a Minions movie," she added.
Cosgrove admitted she had no idea the movies would become such a big deal. "I really didn't," she said. "I remember the first time I saw a Minion and I heard the crazy voice Steve Carell does for Gru and ... I thought kids were going to love it."
So they have. And on top of those box office profits, "Despicable Me" has been a huge seller as a DVD. Can the sequel top that? Stay tuned. "Despicable Me" is available on DVD Dec. 10.
