My Favorite Scene: Abigail Breslin

The ”Little Miss Sunshine” star liked doing the blood-curdling scream featured in the film

The 10-year-old has guest-starred on a number of TV shows, including Grey’s Anatomy, but her most memorable onscreen moment is from awards favorite Little Miss Sunshine. ”The dinner scene when I find out that I’m going to the beauty pageant,” declares Breslin, who plays the gap-toothed, precocious Olive Hoover. ”I got to scream in it — that was pretty fun, screaming at the top of my lungs.” And does the native New Yorker have particularly piercing pipes? ”Yeah, I do,” she adds with a giggle. ”The sound department was like, ‘Can you tell us when she’s going to scream so we can cover our ears?”’
