Abigail Breslin Is Grown Up And Unrecognizable, Even To Castmates

Abigail Breslin grew up, and the world is just not ready. It was only a couple short months ago that we brought you news of the former ginger Little Miss Sunshine's new platinum look. And how's that been working for her, you wonder? Well, that depends on how you look at it. Earlier this week on the Toronto International Film Festival red carpet, where she appeared to promote her new film August: Osage County, the teen actress told reporters that no one even knows it's her anymore. "The cast doesn't recognize me! I was like ‘Hey guys!' and they were like, ‘Who's this random girl crashing our photo shoot today?'" she told E! News. Before that, she was spotted in a supermarket by two fans, who ultimately dismissed her as an Abigail Breslin lookalike.

Maybe it's not just her hair. Maybe it's just that Breslin, while appearing more grown-up in Zombieland but still in that early-teen transitional phase, is now maturing into a woman. And maybe still, a dash of obscurity could be just what a young actress needs to boost her cred as someone who would rather hone her dramatic craft than bask in the limelight. Before she goes down the Path of Lohan, that is — not that we could ever imagine that. (Huffington Post)

This is the breakout look that shocked the world. The laws of human anatomy dictate that she in fact arrived gradually at this stage rather than suddenly waking up one morning looking like an adult instead of a child à la Big. But, this was the moment when everyone suddenly took notice. We love the red lip, the high-shine earrings, and that dramatic, side-swept hair!

While she definitely owns the platinum blonde look right now, we have to put it out there that we love this honey-colored shade, too. It's a great match for her skin tone, and lends itself to those non-red-carpet moments.
