Forgive us, but we can’t help but repeat what we all said when Anna Chlumsky appeared on the red carpet for The Iron Lady last year: She’s not My Girl anymore … she’s all woman. Seeing the 21-year-old on the red carpet for her own new project, HBO’s Veep, returned all those warm fuzzy feelings we have about her 1991 movie that Macaulay Culkin recently tried to eradicate. And now we can look forward to seeing her as Amy Brookheimer, an awesome and hilariously ambitious chief of staff to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ vice president. Also, we want that slinky, retro black gown.
Check out this trailer for her character and catch the premiere of Veep on Sunday, April 22, at 10 p.m.
Whether you were a kid who would have gladly suffered a million bee stings to date Veda Sultenfuss, or wished that you too could live in a funeral home and have Jamie Lee Curtis as your stepmom, it’s probably a relief to see My Girl star Anna Chlumsky looking hot and happy on the red carpet of The Iron Lady premiere in New York last night. A child actor who didn’t end up rehab or taking off her underwear for money calls for a nostalgia celebration! So what’s Anna been up to since My Girl 2, the film’s almost as satisfying sequel? Since we last saw her sobbing over her mood ring, Chlumsky:
