Abigail Breslin Is 'Down' To Become A Good Dancer with 'Dirty Dancing'

Abigail Breslin becomes the Old Hollywood star we all dream about on the new cover of Prestige Hong Kong.

The 19-year-old actress chatted with the glossy about Scream Queens, Dirty Dancing and more. Check it:

On starring in her first television role on Scream Queens: “I’d never done television before, so working for nine months on the same character was new for me, and a really good experience. It’s been a lot of fun. I’m lucky that everybody I’ve worked with, all the cast and crew, are so great, and we’ve become a family afterwards. [Co-stars] Emma Roberts and Billie Lourd have become my best friends they’re like my sisters, and I go to them for advice all the time. We’d be on set and talking in group text messages about what was going on on set.”

On Dirty Dancing: “I haven’t had a lot of dance experience and we’re in the very beginning stages of training, so it’s been interesting. I think it will be crazy when we get into the choreography. I haven’t really danced much other than when I’m with my friends, but Baby, my character, was not super into dancing in the beginning either, so hopefully I can play to that. But I’m down to become a good dancer.”

On running away from Zac Efron: “You would think that because I’m in this industry, I’d be more comfortable around famous people. But I’m really awkward around them. I have literally run away from celebrities, even if they say hi to me. The first time I met Zac Efron, when we were on the same movie [New Year's Eve], he said, “Hey Abigail,” and I literally turned around and sprinted away from him. And then another time I was at Disneyland and I saw Ryan Gosling, and he didn’t see me, because I’m so not on his radar, but I was terrified and ran away too. It’s really weird.”

On how she kept herself grounded, despite being a child star: “My family has definitely kept me grounded. And my friends. Although my friends and I, we’re not quite 20, we’re sort of still a mess. I just moved into my first apartment and in my first few months of living alone I realised that you actually have to wash dishes. I thought it was something that just happened, that dishes always just cleaned themselves. So when I have people over, I give them plastic cups, because I’m too lazy to wash up afterwards. I find myself calling my mom every day asking her questions about the washing machine. I haven’t quite figured out a lot about what it’s like to be an adult. I still like sitting on my couch all day and watching TV.”
