I love animated movies in general. I like making them.




It's never really fun to have to cry in a scene or anything like that.




I never want to play the same character twice. I like to do different roles. I have fun with that.




It's cheesy, but having a pimple or a bad hair day isn't going to matter in five years. I don't always remember that, but I try.




I've been really lucky with the people that I've gotten to work with. I learn a lot from them, just by watching them.




I've never had a treehouse because I live in New York City. It would be a little bit hard to fit a treehouse in a New York City apartment.




I have a really great family, and when I'm not filming, I go home and walk the dogs, take out the garbage, clean my room, all that stuff. My family and my friends keep me in line, and make sure I don't get crazy.




I made my first movie when I was five.




I'm a huge horror movie fan. Beyond belief.




My phone is always in front of me, 24/7.




I try to make myself do things for other people when I'm feeling down. Like, you can call your local hospital and help out in the pediatric unit.




I've always been a huge fan of the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies.




Well, my brother started acting before I did.




I really like to cook.




I'm from New York. I have a non, neutral accent. It can go any way you want.




I'd love to work with Michelle Williams. I think that she's incredible. She's such a great actress and I love her.




A lot of the time I'm working with people who are older than me.




I love Chicago.




I like to have sleepovers.




What's my favourite food? One you order out.




My mom didn't ever think I would take to acting because I was a very shy, very reserved kind of child. But obviously, something changed!




I would love to do a 'Scream'-type movie.




I'm pretty boring.




I don't really like to talk about other people. I think people who have things going on in their lives, I think they have enough to deal with, they don't need, you know, Abigail Breslin weighing in on their lives.




People say, like, 'Are you a regular person?' 'Well, I'm not a robot, if that's what you're asking, I really am a person.'




I like English, and I like writing essays, and that kind of stuff.




I'd like to do more TV; TV is completely different than working in movies in a lot of ways, it's like making a really compact movie. Because you don't have as much time, especially hour long shows, they move so quickly.




Well, you know, I never want to feel like I have a set plan of what I'm supposed to do. I kind of like to go script by script, and if I like the character and like the story that's why I want to do a movie.
