See What 'Annie' Star Looks Like Now

See What 'Annie' Star Looks Like Now, Thirty years ago, Aileen Quinn won over moviegoers as the freckle-faced, red-headed orphan. 'Annie' 30th anniversary Blu-ray: Star Aileen Quinn recalls little-known facts, You may not recognize her now, but that's because Little Orphan Annie is all grown up... and she has been for a while.

Yes, the 1982 John Huston musical film "Annie" is now 30 years old and celebrating with a commemorative Blu-ray edition that includes a sing-along feature. In honor of the anniversary, Yahoo! Movies spoke with the film's former freckled, red-headed (it was a wig) star Aileen Quinn, who revealed some little known details about the making of the film, including the audition process.

The Quinn-SJP Connection: Quinn, now 41, was a "swing orphan" in the Broadway show that preceded the film when she was just eight years old. She was in the stage show musical just after Sarah Jessica Parker's tenure as Annie. (Yes, SJP got her start on Broadway!) "The switch over was pretty close because I got invited to [Parker's] 12th birthday party. So I did meet Sarah way back then but it was while Allison Smith [who went on to star in "Kate & Allie"] was Annie," Quinn recalls.
