Abigail Breslin’s Evolution Through the Years (PHOTOS)

It’s hard to believe that Abigail Breslin turns 15 today (April 14), especially since the world is so used to seeing her as the pint-sized cutie pie with a ponytail and glasses.

Nine years ago she stole our hearts (and the show) opposite Mel Gibson as his adorable and plucky daughter in the thriller Signs and she has since gone on to hold her own in show-stopping performances alongside Kate Hudson, Steve Carell, Jodie Foster, Ryan Reynolds, Cameron Diaz and Johnny Depp. And talk about career-making roles: Her turn in Little Miss Sunshine will forever bring a smile to our faces.

Celebuzz has put together a photo evolution of the young starlet in honor of her birthday. From stuffed animals on the red carpet to stunning gowns and stilettos, check out how Abigail has changed over the years.
