Abigail Breslin snaps a pic with Kelly Osbourne during the Nanette Lepore Fall 2010 Fashion Show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at The Promenade at NYC’s Bryant Park on Wednesday morning (February 17).
Cindy Osbrink and Beth Cannon, who manage Dakota and Abigail‘s careers chimed in about the strategy in choosing a role. Cindy shared, “I think itâ€™s very telling to watch the film choices of actresses like Dakota and Abigail, because what theyâ€™re doing right is challenging themselves by doing different roles in picture after picture.”
Beth shared, “When we choose a project, we talk about: ‘What is this project going to bring you next? What choices will it open up for you next?’ After Little Miss Sunshine, she had a very big adult audience. So we made a very strategic choice to do Nimâ€™s Island and Kit Kittredge to get the kid audience, because we knew we needed the younger demographic for her to continue her trajectory to be a star who could at some point hopefully open a movie. And then we went back to movies like Zombieland, which we knew would be for the teens and 20-somethings.”
