Talking 'Bout My Girl

| Filed under: Film Flickers


She said adios to Hollywood years ago, but now she is back! The precocious child star of My Girl, Anna Chlumsky, is now a grown woman who's ready to "wow" us with her acting chops once more.

If you are wondering where she has been all these years, there is a simple answer: Hollywood sucks. Though she did well with the My Girl movies, she had a lot of trouble finding roles as a teen and the pressure became so much, she ditched the industry all together.

Says Anna, "I didn't want to go down any scarier path of low self-esteem than I was already on the track for. So during my second year of college I was like, 'I'm over it! I have to go see what this other thing called life is about!'"

So she went to college, got herself an education, and got married. She's done pretty well for herself, actually.

But now it is time for the comeback and so far, she's done pretty well. You can catch Anna costarring in the ensemble comedy In the Loop as well as sharing screen time with Alexis Bledel later this year in The Good Guy.

Good for her!

Welcome back to the Hollywood mixer, Anna! We only have one piece of advice: Don't do any movies with Lindsay Lohan. Trust us, we know what we're talking about.

    Omg! I had looked her up on the Net a while back and I thought she is an extremely beautiful girl. It's crazy I was watching that movie 'My Girl' for a little bit last night and thought about how she looked today. I must say thanx Perez!

    behaviour. smart girl "Vada" ;)

  22. 22

  23. 23

    I love her! I got so excited when I saw her face on your website!

  24. 24

    She really grew into her looks! Very pretty lady.

    She also was on 30 Rock in its first season. Liz Lemon had a crush on Jason Sudeikis' character, Floyd, and Anna played Floyd's girlfriend.

  25. 25

    AWE she is soo cute. I absolutely loovved My Girl and could identify with Vada and being a hypochondriac tomboy. I wish her the best. She looks good and healthy unlike lindsay who is several years younger but linds looks decade older.

  26. 26

    i loved my girl and my girl 2

  27. 27

    pretty girl, but she needs to thin out her nose a bit

    Great child star..nice to see her back on the silver screen!

  34. 34

    How would you know what you're talking about when you say "Don't star in a movie with lohan?" Atleast lohans HAD a career, you went into hollywood a pre-made failed actor.

    Re: ruunyi – thomas j not michael j numpty

  36. 36

    all i see when i look at her is … "glasses .. he needs his glasses" BEST MOVIE!

  37. 37

    awh i love her! that movie rocked!

  38. 38

    Well, honestly, how can we take her seriously for Hollywood when she looks like that? See through skin? Gross!! Get a tan. And even though I like big noses, (and have one!) I think hers is damaged (red spots) and kinda ugly. She needs a serious makeover, and also working out wouldn't hurt either. Btw, who is the "we" Perez is always referring to? I liked the idea of a fat, kinda loserly gay guy providing us with tidbits and harshly criticizing people. If it's a bunch of people, that just takes away from PerezHilton.com, and makes me wonder why I don't just look at some other gossip site. I wanted a fat gay boy to give me my news. =( Wtf Perez?

  39. 39

    reminds me of a lady down the street - good looking - not over the top like a million out there … hope she does well as is.

  40. 40

    Yay!!!!!! I absolutely LOVE her!! When I was like 8, I used to watch My Girl everyday, it was the best movie and I always idolized her! I am so glad she is back!! Knock em dead girl!!!
