Abigail Breslin is young, beautiful, and famous, so naturally she has tons of designers tryna dress her all the time. That is exactly the reason why I’m a little confused as to why she chose this particular beast of a striped cutout dress to the Los Angeles premiere (so, like, the BIG ONE!) of “August: Osage County”. I would say that the body-hugging shape is truly great on her, and her hair and makeup look awesome, but whoa, I’m a little distracted by EVERYTHING ELSE GOING ON. Nothing like a metallic silver boob tube to make you forget that someone even has a face. Also: earrings???? I propose a new stylist for Abigail, one that will dress her like the sassy, youthful 17-year-old she is and not like my very lovely but slightly older grandmother, who is always looking for the right pair of clip-on earrings that will “cover her earlobes.”
If you can believe it, actress Abigail Breslin — you know, the adorable little girl who charmed audiences in “Little Miss Sunshine” — is turning 18 in six months, but she’s already looking pretty grown up to me. Abigail recently posed for edgy photographer Tyler Shields in a state of underdress, and posted a couple teaser shots to Instagram. In one, Breslin appears to have ditched her top and is covering her post-pubescent tatas with what looks to be a towel. In another (see it after the jump), she’s huddled (naked, presumably) in a bathtub. Breslin and Shields worked together previously on his movie, “Final Girl,” and have maintained a friendship. But lest you think Breslin is trying to prove something with these racy shots, she explained to E! News, “I don’t make these conscious decisions to do it to like prove to the world that I’m grown up. I think people see my work and see what I do and see that I’m grown up. But yeah, I’m almost 18. Every headline for the past three years has been ‘Abigail Breslin All Grown Up,’ so I am kind of growing up. I do want to try different things but it’s all for fun.” Hey, fair enough. But can I still get a “Little Miss Sunshine 2″? [E! Online] [Photos: Tyler Shield] Keep reading »

Abigail Breslin attended the 10th Annual Tribeca Film Festival Vanity Fair Party yesterday, and the 15-year-old star is looking pretty good (with perhaps a smidge too much make-up). What do you think?
The actress has come a long way since her “Little Miss Sunshine” film warmed viewers’ hearts in 2006. She has certainly grown up.
Abigail recently voiced a character in “Rango” and stars in the upcoming film “New Year’s Eve” opposite stars such as Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Hilary Swank. Read more… Keep reading »
The blind and deaf communities are not rejoicing after the announcement that Abigail Breslin has signed on to play Helen Keller in the upcoming Broadway revival of “The Miracle Worker.” Why? Simply put, she’s not blind or deaf. Advocacy groups feel strongly that the production should consider using an actress from the blind or deaf community because of the larger human and artistic issues at stake. But the producers of the show are not interested in humanity. They are interested in ticket sales—they feel that their primary responsibility is to ensure the commercial success of the production, and in this economy it could take an actual miracle worker to have a wildly successful show without a star. But if it’s any consolation … they will try their best to find a blind or deaf understudy for the part. So what do you think? Is it wrong for Abigail Breslin to land the role of Helen Keller?

I love reading. I might love it more than orgasms, sleeping or eating. And I will read anything, high or low, because I’ve enjoyed “smart books” like Katharine Graham’s autobiography as much as “trashy books” like The Other Boleyn Sister. I just can’t stand people who get on their high horse and sniff that a 10th grader could have written Twilight. It was a good read—who cares?
I’ve read two novels by Jodi Picoult—My Sister’s Keeper and Nineteen Minutes—which were both three-hanky reads about suburban families with troubled kids (cancer in one, a school shooting in another). But NPR has a different perspective on the Picoult oeuvre. Keep reading »
