Abigail Breslin is in a new film with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Ordinarily it is Arnold Schwarzenegger who gets to play the soulless creature bent on one deadly mission. This time Abigail Breslin gets to play that part.
Abigail Breslin is a zombie. The film is called Maggie, and it just hit theaters in the U.S. today. In the film, Schwarzenegger plays a small-town farmer whose daughter (Abigail Breslin) is infected with a virus that transforms her into a zombie.
When Abigail Breslin visited Late Night with Seth Meyers recently, she related a story from the set of Maggie about her first time meeting the Governator.
“It was our first big scene together and I’m in hair and make-up… and the make-up artist and I we were friends, and so we were talking, and I was talking about [an ex-boyfriend], and I was like, ‘I can’t believe he un-friended me on Facebook, this is so rude, he messed me up and now he has to un-friend me? Like, friend me back, I want to un-friend him, I want that right.’
“And I was complaining on and on and she kept being like, ‘Abi, Abi,’ I was like, ‘What? Why are you defending him to me?’ She’s like, ‘Turn around.’
“And I turned around and Arnold was standing there. And he was like, ‘Abigail, who is this guy?’
Schwarzenegger was obviously not pleased with how the ex had treated Abigail Breslin. So she jokingly offered to send her own T-1000 after him.
“It’s like, ‘You want his number?,'” she joked to Seth Meyers.
“No, I wouldn’t do that to somebody but he was just giving me advice, like, ‘Don’t be with him.’ It was really fun. You see Arnold Schwarzenegger and you’re like, ‘Oh he’s the Terminator, he’s this big movie action icon, Governor [of California].’ You wouldn’t think that he was as well known or anything like that because he’s just so nice and normal and super sweet,” she said.
