Happy birthday to Abigail Breslin who turns 17 today (April 14)!
She started early celebrations on Friday when she tweeted: “Christmas movies in April are acceptable if its your birthday… Right? #liferule #WhileYouWereSleeping”
The actress stars in The Call with Halle Berry. It’s a darker movie – a long way off from when she was a 10-year-old girl in Little Miss Sunshine. In a recent interview with Moviefone - Breslin answers the question on being recognized constantly as the little girl from ‘Sunshine’ and ‘Signs’.
She said, “I’ve been really lucky that people have accepted me growing up a little bit and that I’ve gotten to do such great characters in the past year. I feel like it’s been a pretty smooth transition. I feel really lucky about that and I’m really grateful. But it’s been fun.”
Breslin also shared a story when a fan mistook her for Miley Cyrus.
“It just happens when you see a face and you’re trying to think of the name. I think the funniest thing that I got, I was walking down the street and I was filming “New Year’s Eve.” I had really long, blond hair at the time and I had this girl yell, “Oh my god, it’s Hannah Montana! ” I was like, “No, I’m not, sorry.” And they were like “Hmm, it’s just some chick named Abigail.” They didn’t care after that.”
