Abigail Breslin may be best known as a 9-year-old Oscar nominee. But the Little Miss Sunshine star has plenty of other pursuits these days – including boys.
The actress – who, with her long blonde hair, looked almost unrecognizable last month at the August: Osage County premiere – has been writing music lately, and tells ABC News that many of the songs are about young love.
"Boys and life. I mean, I'm 17," she says. "So, basically that's the thing that runs through my head every day. So yeah, lots about boys."
