Sophia Grace, of the performance group Sophia Grace and Rosie, just landed her first movie role as Little Red Riding Hood in Into the Woods. Considering that this movie also stars Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick and Meryl Streep, it’s kind of a big deal. Considering that the 10-year-old is Ellen DeGeneres closest friend and confidante, this role came as no surprise to me though. We knew at some point, Auntie El would pull some strings and get the girl in something. If only to keep her fresh and exciting for the red carpets come award season next year.
I think we can all agree that 2013 is the year we went from loving her to liking her to wondering how she could possibly still be attending school in Britain with all this cross-continental travel across the pond. Don’t get me wrong. I think she’s built of spunk and pizzazz and even a dash of moxie. If the acting career doesn’t pan out, I have no doubt she’ll do something in the biz. God only knows that I’d rather watch her interview celebrities over Ryan Seacrest any day of the week.
So in honor of her getting her big start, I present you with my absolute favorite Sophia Grace GIF of all time. And no, I will give you no context.
