Teen Actress Abigail Breslin Is Entitled to Her $16,250 Hourly Salary

abigail breslinAbigal BreslinYou recognize the name Abigail Breslin, don't you? She's that adorable girl best known for her hilarious role in Little Miss Sunshine. Looking at her eensy face makes me laugh every time remembering that epic dance scene at the pageant. Ugh! Those pelvic thrusts!

Rumor has it that the now 15-year-old earned a whopping $65,000 for her voiceover of a bird named Zoe in the upcoming animated film Zambezia. The killer? It was only four hours of work. If my calculations are correct -- that means the actress snagged in a casual $16,250 an HOUR. Pretty sweet gig, huh?

Sure, it sounds like a lot. In fact, that's more than some people make in a whole year (or two!). Come on, though. Abby deserves every penny. It's not every day that a child star makes it out into the great, big girl world of acting successfully. She's got to save every penny while she can!

Truth be told, Breslin has actually had a pretty solid rap sheet since her breakthrough performance in Little Miss Sunshine. Most recently the actress was paid $275,000 a week for kissing Zac Efron her work in the upcoming film New Year's Eve. This $65,000 paycheck is just chump change compared to that!

I want to be jealous of Abby's baller status, I really do. It's just not my place though. Abigail chose a lifestyle where she rakes in the money, and I chose one where I can go into my local Panera without being followed by screaming fans. To each his own, no? The entertainment business brings in billions and billions of dollars every year, and that's exactly why production companies can afford to pay the big bucks. I enjoy what comes out of Hollywood, so ultimately, I'm not one to judge.

Besides, in the grand scheme of things, $65,000 is nothin' compared to some of the other crazy salaries the huge names in Hollywood make on the regular. Ashton Kutcher makes $700,000 AN EPISODE for his gig on Two and a Half Men, for Pete's sake. I don't even want to think about what Madonna is getting paid to do the Super Bowl halftime performance this year! Comparatively, Breslin is just a hardworking teen making a normal acting salary while trying to make a bigger and sustainable name for herself.

Let's all enjoy some old-school Abigail with this clip from Little Miss Sunshine. Trust me, if her salary news didn't exactly make you smile -- this will.
