You surely saw the actress in one of her later hits.

Summary:

  • Little Miss Sunshine was released almost twenty years ago and starred Abigail Breslin, who became worldwide known thanks to her role as Olive.
  • Later, the actress participated in such projects as Zombieland and its sequel, and Maggie with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
  • Now, Abigail is stunning at her 27, and married to Ira Kunyansky.

Little Miss Sunshine is an unusual road movie about a dysfunctional family that decides to stick together no matter what. Paul Dano's first major role, two Academy Awards, and Abigail Breslin's unforgettable dance to U Canʼt Touch This guarantee a comfort in your soul that will continue to warm you years after you see it.

The movie about a girl who captivated millions of viewers with her positivity and openness became a huge hit in the year of its release.

Even at its premiere at the Sundance Festival, the movie received a standing ovation from the audience and went on to make a huge amount of money at the box office.

But that was almost twenty years ago. Have you ever wondered what happened to Abigail Breslin, who played the little Olive?

Even before Little Miss Sunshine, you could see Abigail in the thriller Signs with Mel Gibson, one of M. Night Shyamalan's best projects. According to Abigail, this was one of the most impressive projects she ever took part in, and the director was extremely tactful, asking her if she was scared to be on set.

Just three years after playing Olive, the actress starred in another hit – one of the best horror comedies in history, Zombieland, starring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone.

Despite the fact that Breslin was sharing the screen with established stars, she managed to make her character Little Rock as charismatic as Eisenberg’s Columbus or Stone’s Wichita. Ten years after the premiere, the entire cast appeared in the sequel, Zombieland: Double Tap.

When Chloe Moretz was unable to join the cast of Maggie, Abigail was able to work with Arnold Schwarzenegger on the same set. Their father-daughter tandem was praised by critics, in contrast to the movie itself, which again had a zombie topic – Arnold played a father who cannot part with his daughter who is slowly turning into a zombie.

Maggie (2015)

One of the actress' most disastrous projects was the remake of the cult Dirty Dancing, which was released in 2017 and crushed by critics – Abigail played the main character Baby.

Now Abigail is 27 years old, in 2023 she married Ira Kunyansky after more than five years of relationship.
