I may be over 30, but that doesn’t make me too old to hold out hope for a Daddy Warbucks style adoption, right? So what if I own the “Annie” commemorative plate series or can still quote dialogue from the film? “First the windows, then the floors … in case I drip.” Even I knew she wasn’t there to clean, but it was so endearing that she wanted to earn her keep. Though she was a poor orphan living in the depression, it seemed only natural to wish I were her. Especially after she becomes rich and gets to live in a mansion with an indoor pool and a turbaned body guard. “A child without courage is like a night without stars.” Words of wisdom from Punjab. I’ve been waiting for Aileen Quinn aka Annie to resurface. See what she looks like now after the jump.
Leapin’ lizards! Aileen Quinn is 40 now and an adjunct theater professor in West Long Branch, New Jersey. Hmm. This makes me feel older than I anticipated. I think I finally understand why Miss Hannigan took all those gin baths. [TMZ]
