Remember the adorable, dorky little girl from Little Miss Sunshine played by Abigail Breslin? You know, the one with the glasses, sweatband and truly awesome dance moves? Well, she’s all grown up (mostly–she’s now 17) and just recently posed for a topless photo shoot.
Yeah, let that sink in for a moment–the adorable Olive Hoover doing a racy photo shoot. Suddenly nothing is right with the world.
Abigail Breslin, who doesn’t turn 18 until April 2014, just posed for a topless shoot for Tyler Shields, the author of The Dirty Side of Glamour. While Breslin is clearly topless in the photos that were released, she uses various items to conceal her breasts. In one photo Breslin is shown in a bathtub wearing nothing but bubbles. Another photo shows her barely covered in a sheet. Breslin told E! that she did the photo shoot for “fun” and that she “loved” the photos.
“I love working with Tyler, we always have a blast. We just do it for fun and he’s great,” Breslin said. In case you’re thinking that Breslin did the shoot to try to prove a point, she says that isn’t the case. “I don’t make these conscious decisions to do it to like prove to the world that I’m grown up. I think people see my work and see what I do and see that I’m grown up. But yeah, I’m almost 18. Every headline for the past three years has been ‘Abigail Breslin All Grown Up,’ so I am kind of growing up. I do want to try different things but it’s all for fun.”
Aside from posing for the photo shoot, Breslin has been pretty busy lately. She has a movie opening on Christmas Day called August: Osage County and also has several films in production.
The news that the former My Sister’s Keeper star did a topless photo shoot has struck a chord with quite a few people. Many are concerned about whether it should even be legal for someone who hasn’t turned 18 to do such a photo shoot.
Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), age 17, poses for semi nude pics, ala Miley Cyrus. Another sweet young girl bites the dust. So sad.

Abigail Breslin trying to be sexy and racy is insanely awkward. Can't picture her as anyone else but Olive from Little Miss Sunshine
