No matter how many awesome roles she’s had in the past 16 years, it’s hard not to think of Heather Matarazzo as her the horribly, heartbreakingly awkward Dawn Wiener in Welcome to the Dollhouse. At the same time, when you see the incredibly poised, pretty and funny 29-year-old now, it’s hard to imagine that she’s the same person. (Though her mannerisms totally recall her second-best teen gig, as smartass Lilly Moscovitz in The Princess Diaries.) She stopped by Big Morning Buzz Live this morning to chat about her newest movie Mangus!, which she produced and stars in, and also to share a “shoe whore” moment with Carrie Keagan. We’re pretty sure she downplayed the rest of her outfit so her heels would stand out more.
Heather is wearing a Free People dress, a necklace given to her by her fiancee and Kenneth Cole shoes. Let’s take one more look at those shoes, shall we?
