To what factors do you contribute your (apparent) transition from child star to stable, non-psychotic adult star?

yoabbaabba1225 karma

Probably my parents and friends. I may be stable, but no one ever said i was non-psychotic.

Do you remember much from making the movie Signs? Btw, I was never able to look on top of a shed throughout my entire youth after watching that movie.

yoabbaabba1080 karma

Wow, nice. I don't remember much besides me being in a bizarre obsession with polly pockets at the time.

natanaj538 karma

do you ever think there's gonna be this massive nuclear holocaust, and after all the major nations are destroyed there'll just be the tribes in the jungles, and they'll rise up and survive, and jungle warfare is gonna rule the world?

If you could only pick one to be your real life mom out of Rachel Weisz, Isla Fisher, and Elizabeth Banks who would it be?

Isla Fisher because I've worked with her a couple of times, so she probably knows me the best, and would mother me accordingly.

BrodyCole38 karma

Hello Ms. Breslin! Thank you for doing this AMA! Been a fan of yours for a while now and just wanted to congratulate you on such an awesome career so far. And good luck in the future. I guess I should ask something now, haha. Having just turned 18 this year, you have done so much for your career in such little time. Do you see yourself continuing on this busy path in terms of acting. Or do you plan on taking a break at any point to focus on something else or to just chill?

yoabbaabba75 karma

Thanks a lot! I plan on continuing to act, but I am also recording an album. Also I am taking lots of time to chill at night. :)
