Annie's Quvenzhané Wallis Will Never Change Her Name

Quvenzhané Wallis has us seeing triple in this brand new feature from V Magazine V92, on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 11-year-old Annie actress had to share with the mag:

On why she would never change her name: “I will never change my name, because that’s what I was born with.”

On how Annie came naturally to her: “I like singing because you can express yourself and they might not know if it’s about you or someone else. I kind of sang in the car when my brothers were traveling for basketball, but then when I got the part in Annie, I had singing lessons.”

On being a role model: “I feel it when I go to movies and I take pictures with the little kids. I can tell they’re so happy because their faces turn really red, and it’s so cute!”

On her style: “[It's] really girly and princess-y with a lot of sparkles.”

    Why would it even be a question if she were going to change her name or not? She is already famous with it. No reason to change it now. If she was going to change it. The time would have been before Beasts of the Southern Wild.

    You go,girl!! Why dont’ they ask Zach Galifianakis or Benedict Cumberbatch to change THEIR names?? Ms Wallis has a beautiful name and methinks after Annie comes out,she will be much more of a household name.
