(NEW YORK) — Little Miss Sunshine star Abigail Breslin is all grown up and now, there are photos to prove it.
In a new portfolio from The Dirty Side of Glamour author Tyler Shields, the actress, 17, is seen topless and in a bathtub.
However, Breslin, who is set to star in next month’s film, August: Osage County alongside Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep, told ABC News last month that her transformation from child star to adult actress has been a gradual one.
“My favorite thing in the world that me and my friends talk about is that I’ve been all grown up for about three years now,” she said. “Every single time I’m photographed anywhere, the headline is ‘All Grown Up.’ It’s been about three years, I’m like, ‘Okay, yeah, I’m all grown up.’”
“I wish I had some great story about the struggle of moving into the more adult roles, but I actually didn’t. I didn’t have a big struggle with it at all,” she continued. “It’s been pretty natural, the transition into the teen and adult realm. Hopefully it stays that way.”
And when she’s not in front of the camera, Breslin insists that she’s busy living life as a typical teen.
“Boys and life. I mean, I’m 17,” she said. “So, basically that’s the thing that runs through my head every day, so yeah, lots about boys.”
