Bailee Madison sure is a lucky girl! For a young actress she has worked with some Hollywood heavy hitters. In her new film, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, 11-year-old Bailee got to bond with Katie Holmes — onscreen and off!
Bailee spoke very highly of Katie to reporters at last night’s NYC premiere of the film.
“Katie’s such a sweet girl and just really took care of me. One of the nicest, most talented girls ever.” Are we sure Bailee is the one who’s younger here?
She added, “It’s such a dark and edgy scripted film that whenever Katie would come on set, she would make it so much fun. It made the set so upbeat and [she] just took care of me. We had dance parties and crafts. We did everything. She just made my time so enjoyable.”
When OK! asked what they danced to, Bailee said, “We did a lot of Mamma Mia! That’s fun because you can twirl a lot.”
A member of these dance parties was Katie’s daughter, Suri Cruise.
“She really is just one of the sweetest little girls. Like what every little girl is, just sweet and fun. She just loves to have a good time and really is just so energetic, really just the sweetest little girl ever.”
Another famous co-star of Bailee’s is Selena Gomez. Asked if they kept in touch, Bailee said, “You always try to keep in touch because they become so close to you, like family.”
What does she think of Selena’s hot BF Justin Bieber?
“I don’t know. I kind of left that to her. But if she’s happy, I’m happy for her.”
