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.

It’s Quvenzhane.”) I thought I had better re-watch the interview for the exact quote after all the reblogs, so sorry!(via shereader)
