I am not Annie. I am Quvenzhane.
9-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis, correcting the AP Reporter who said, “I’m calling you Annie now.”
(for context: Quvenzhane will be playing the title role of Annie in the upcoming film)
edit: Host Michelle Marie didn’t say she was “just going to call her Annie” like I quoted in the original post. And Quvenzhane said the above, and not what I had mistakenly paraphrased—(“My name is not Annie. It’s Quvenzhane.”) I thought I had better re-watch the interview for the exact quote after all the reblogs, so sorry!
