Abigail Breslin, nearly 15 years old, looks all grown up on the set of ‘New Year’s Eve’


Look, it’s Little Miss Sunshine! These are new photos of Abigail Breslin on the New York set of New Year’s Eve, filming on Monday with Sarah Jessica Parker. Abigail is 14 years old now – she’ll be 15 years old next week. She’s almost all grown up! I can’t believe how tall she is. She was so tiny in Little Miss Sunshine and Signs, the only two movies I’ve seen her in. Now she looks like a full-fledged little lady. A lady with bad posture, but a lady none the less. I actually had Abigail pegged as one of the child stars to really flourish in her teens and become a huge star in adulthood. While she has continued to work since her Oscar-nominated role in Little Miss Sunshine, she really hasn’t broken out, big-time, in a huge showy role in her teen years, and she hasn’t been “mentioned” for any of the big parts for young actors lately (go here for her IMDB page). And now she’s going an ensemble romantic-comedy with Sarah Jessica Parker and Ashton Kutcher. Ugh. Fingers crossed for Abigail. If she decides to stay in Hollywood, I hope she gets better choices as the years go by.

By the way, I was looking through the cast of New Year’s Eve… it’s horrible. I mean, they got some good people to sign on, probably because actors won’t turn down an easy paycheck for less than a week’s worth of work. But for every actor that you’d like to see make a solid rom-com (Sofia Vergara, Robert DeNiro, Michelle Pfeiffer), there are like three actors that you just want to smack in the face (Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele, Josh Duhamel, Sienna Miller, Jessica Biel).

Here are some pics of SJP, in what I’m hoping is her costume. My guess is that her character’s fatal flaws are a cute-but-neurotic temperament and “layers”.

    Abigail is cute and so talented.
    This movie must have half of Hollywood in it….bleh.

  2. PrettyTarheel says:

    SJP is rockin’ “Bag Lady Chic.” Either that, or she borrowed from the Derelicte line.

  3. Meghan says:

    We have the same birthday 🙂 Of course, I was turning 9 when she was born…. but damn, her being 15 makes me feel old!

  4. Jackson says:

    Abigail was great in Zombieland. I think I’ll have to pass on this movie though.

  5. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Abigail looks like Avril Lavigne in these photos, which is not a bad thing.

    Hope she goes on to do well and avoids the normal pitfalls of Hollywood child stars.

  6. Ponytail says:

    Yeah, I thought she was really cute in Zombieland – and that was definitely a teen role.

  7. fabgrrl says:

    She does look like Avril Lavigne! A cleaned-up, polite, non-bitchy Avril Lavigne.

  8. Someone Else says:

    Abigail has beautiful eyes. I never noticed how striking they are before. Hopefully, she won’t end up another Lohan.

    Fingers crossed.

  9. Cleo says:

    I liked her natural hair color but I love Abigail Breslin as a little girl. If Mattel had used her face for the American Girl dolls, I’d be buying instead of boycotting.

    That’s a normal but pretty outfit she has on. I wish SJP could show off her figure in less mismatchy outfits.

  10. serena says:

    I really always have liked Abigail. And I think she can do oscar-winning movies.. but please not some sketchy romantic commedy!
    She’s wasting herself like that.. I hope it’s only a phase..

    Fingers crossed, yeah.

  11. devilgirl says:

    Cute, young lady, and I think we know I am not speaking about SJP.

  12. Franny says:

    Damn, I’m old. I remember this girl was barely more than a toddler, and now she’s almost 15?!!!

    She was a very talented child actor, I hope she transitions gracefully into adult roles.

  13. kiko says:

    omg kaiser!!!you haven’t seen her in “zombieland”??rent it now!

  14. GeekChic says:

    She is completely cute. However, the makeup person who put all of that black eyeliner on her should be fired. Her eyes are gorgeous — don’t cloak them under a bunch of black garbage!

  15. mln76 says:

    She’s gorgeous and I think it’s great she isn’t too overexposed….As for this crappy Rom-Com they should just put a moratorium on them for 5 years there hasn’t been a really good rom-com in ages.

  16. Stephy2585 says:

    Aww, she’s a cutie!

    Looks like a healthy, less blonde down to earth Taylor Momsen.

  17. Circe says:

    I’m with the rest here. You should really see Zombieland.

  18. polkasox says:

    I like the top half of SJP’s outfit. The purple tights & velvet skirt.. not so much.

  19. Merry says:

    Long hair totally doesn’t look good on her roundish face. She should consider cutting them and ditching the red colour for a rich, dark brown.

  20. Ally says:

    She was awesome in Little Miss Sunshine. If you have not seen it, that’s your assignment this week.

  21. truetalk says:

    i want SJP’s belt

  22. saucy says:

    she was great in little miss sunshine, love that movie.

  23. Ari says:

    Yes, Zombieland. I don’t even remember Little Miss Sunshine sadly.

  24. gee says:

    Zombieland for the winnn! And I think she’s staying low key to ride out the inbetween years, and she’ll come back with some adult roles when she’s old enough. She’s keeping constant and in the know for now. I think she’s the cutest thing.

  25. Emma says:

    She was also really adorable in Definitely Maybe (played daughter of Ryan Reynolds’ character) and No Reservations (with Catherine Zeta-Jones). One of those sweet little actresses you never want to see get older, also like Dakota Fanning.

  26. truetalk says:

    where is Dakota these days?

  27. Newbie says:

    Lea Michelle is in this? Ugh. Scratch that. Triple Ugh to the 10th power. Will not see this movie now.

    @mln76: what exactly constitutes a good rom-com these days? I’m not trying to be an ass. I really want to know. From what I can tell, most of the critics HATE ALL romatic comedies, bar none. Are we looking for critical acclaim, or are we looking to box office? Box office-wise, there have been quite a few hits. I’m just interested in your opinion, is all. I’m not calling you out.

  28. kesb says:

    She has probably been less than fully committed to being onscreen all of the time because she is still in high school. The two movies she completes a year is a healthy pace that allows her to keep up with schoolwork…of course, this is all just a conjecture based upon my assumption that she attends regular high school.
