At last night’s Gramercy Park Hotel party for her new movie, Janie Jones, Oscar nominee Abigail Breslin exuded all the signs of an ex-child-star who was rapidly maturing but was still charmingly girlish and cute in a semi-transitional sort of way.
After co-star Alessandro Nivola sang a song, the 15-year-old Little Miss Sunshine came out and said to the crowd:
“He’s pretty awesome [giggle], so that’s hard to follow, I guess.
“But I’m gonna play two songs from the movie [giggle] … and, yeah …
“Thank you guys all for coming out here tonight [giggle].
“I’m from New York, so it’s awesome to be able to be here [giggle] and have a lot of friends and everything here.”
And then she sang very sweetly.
The girl’s going to be fine.
