Abigail Breslin, 14, is all grown up

7th Annual Project Sunshine Benefit - Arrivals
14 year-old Abigail Breslin, best known as the star of the 2006 sleeper hit Little Miss Sunshine, stepped out at a charity event on Tuesday looking all grown up! I love how Abigail is mature-looking but age appropriate in a tiered ruffled gown with a pink bow. Breslin was looking much younger just a few months ago, at an event in January. That photo is below. The difference could be partially due to the way she’s changed her makeup to be more adult without overdoing it.

Breslin’s transformation reminds me of a then 14 year-old Dakota Fanning, who emerged a couple of years ago looking like she’d grown up overnight. Fanning since went on to have a normal high school experience, complete with cheerleading duties and being crowned homecoming princess. She’s also had a solid career post child star with roles in The Runaways and New Moon.

Last year Breslin starred in My Sister’s Keeper and Zombieland and she has several films in the works. She had a turn on Broadway earlier this year in The Miracle Worker, which didn’t perform at the ticket office and closed early. Breslin would do well to follow Fanning’s lead and reach a healthy balance between a normal childhood and her career. She looks like she’s headed in that direction and it’s nice to see another teen star who isn’t trying to grow up too fast.

    Must be some good parental influence. Non-acting kids can dress and act inappropriately, but she looks great. Hope she stays that way for awhile.

    M.Night Shyamalan’s Signs was on TV the other night and I only realized then that she played Mel Gibson’s daughter Bo.

    She is growing into a lovely young lady and is a competent actor. I hope she can stay away from the pitfalls that a lot of young Hollywood starlets fall into.

    Oh she’s so cute and pretty! I love her makeup, it’s perfect for her face.

  4. Maritza says:

    She still looks like a kid and that’s good.

  5. lucy2 says:

    I agree she seems to have a well balanced life and career, and I hope it continues to go well for her. She’s a talented kid, and I think if she avoids all the typical Hollywood problems, she’ll have a long and successful career.
    Other child actor parents should take note of her and Dakota Fanning – both seem to be doing great.

    She’s a cutie. I laughed so hard I cried when I saw Little Miss Sunshine. Glad she has good parents and seems to be keeping her head on straight.

    Amazing. This fresh faced, beautiful girl is only two years younger than Ali Lohan.

  12. asiont says:

    she is lovely, I liked her in little miss sunshine

    She is so cute! I hope she keeps her head about her. Hayden P was a gifted child actress, some of the Law & Order reruns and movies she did as a child are really good. Then she tried to transition too fast into an adult and now she s-cks.

    Dammit, can her and Dakota Fanning stop ageing and making me feel old!

  15. Mistral says:

    Cute kid. I think she really resembles a young Kirsten Dunst.

  16. Emily says:

    I hope she continues like this, she seems really “normal” and together, which sadly is the exception with Hollywood kids.

  17. Confuzzle says:

    So nice to see her growing up quite normally!

  18. Anj says:

    She’s stunning! so lovely!
