The adorable and preternaturally talented Quvenzhané Wallis is the most recent actress to portray Little Orphan Annie, but who else has melted hearts as the precocious heroine?

Look out, Carol Burnett! Cameron Diaz is piling on the sass to portray the famously hardhearted Miss Hannigan in the movie remake of Annie.
The actress, 41, Tweeted a photo of herself in costume – big hoop earrings, a heap of thick chain necklaces (one of them spells out "HBomb"), dark makeup and even darker roots.
"I want you to meet someone," Diaz writes in the caption. "Her name is Ms. Hannigan. She ain't nice and she ain't pretty. #Annie"
