Abigail Breslin isn't exactly "Little Miss Sunshine" around Turkey Day.
The 17-year-old actress told CNN that while most are merry on Thanksgiving, she's more likely to be found crying into her stuffing.
"On Thanksgiving I cry, every Thanksgiving I cry," Breslin said in a recent interview. "I think it's the turkey. Like it's a hormone or something. You know how it makes you tired? It has this effect on me where it makes me cry."
Thankfully, the star's tears tend to dry up by the time pie is served.
"I cry for eight minutes, ... it’s just tears," the "August: Osage County" actress assured us. "And then I have dessert and then I’m okay."
