Brooklynn Prince won the Critics’ Choice Awards. Sure, she literally was a winner Thursday night, taking home the award for Best Young Actor/Actress for her role in The Florida Project, but on and off stage it was the 7-year-old who completely stole the show. And the A-list crowd couldn’t get enough of the up-and-coming actress.
Prince got close to Angelina Jolie and, dare we say, brought out the the first real smile we’ve seen from Jolie in a while. It was recently reported the young star was in talks to join Jolie in The One and Only Ivan, and it looks like the Oscar-winning actress approves. Clearly, Prince was a welcome new hang-out partner for Jolie, who has been making the awards season rounds solo.
