Abigail Breslin: Little Miss Italian Sunshine

Kit Kitteredge: An American Girl may not have set the box office on fire, but darn it, Abigail Breslin is turning her lemons into lemonade and living the high life anyway.

The 12-year-old starlet joined actors Tim Roth and Meg Ryan in Italy for the Giffoni Film Festival.

The event recognizes children’s films, and teaches young kids from around the world the process of making films.

What really would have made this a treasured memory is if Dakota Fanning had been lowered from a helicopter, totally ambushing Abigail’s Italian portrait shoot.

Then the two screen tweens could start clawing each others hair out, all Miley and Selena style.

There are only so many roles for precocious kiddies out there.
