Little Miss Sunshine
Abigail Breslin just got a raise.
The Oscar-nominated actress rakes in an estimated $2 million per movie these days, yet, her allowance only went up by $1 in April.
"I get $13 [a week] now, because I'm 13," she said at the Manhattan premiere of My Sister's Keeper
with Cameron Diaz
Breslin, who has been in show business since she was 5, ranked eighth in Forbes
magazine's list of "Young Hollywood's Top-Earning Stars," in 2007 after pulling in $1.5 million in 2006. At home, she's earned her age the past couple years, and, with her most-recent pay raise comes more responsibility. "My chores have gotten a little heavier," she says. "My brother used to always to feed the cat and now I feed the cat, which isn't a big deal, but it kind of is, because my cat eats tons. It's like an all-day long cycle."
