Transcript for Quvenzhane Wallis Takes on the 'Hard-Knock Life'
Thank you. Quvenzhane Wallis may be my favorite interview ever on "Gma." That's why I'm so glad to welcome her back. She is the youngest nominee for the history of the oscars. She will return soon to the big screen in a modern version of "Annie." How are you? I'm doing very well. I guess. You look great. I love the dress. I love the nails. I love the whole thing. How is sandy doing? She's doing good. Yeah? She's very calm right now. But she looked a little scared when everybody out there cheered? Yeah. She's my dog. She is your dog. She is one of a kind and she always will be. The last time you were here, it was just a rumor that you were going to be doing "Annie." And now, it's actually happened. It must have been a dream come true. Yeah. It was really -- I was really happy. It's amazing how you can see how a rumor becomes to reality. And how it increases until reality. We're going to show a little bit of that reality right now. You and sandy have brought us a little sneak peek of the movie that's coming out in December? Yes. Take a look. I love the city. No matter who you are, what you are, you just have to want it bad enough. ? It's a hard knock life for us ? Annie is never going to find her family. None of us are. We all have family somewhere. Because you can, doesn't mean you should. You're up five points in the polls. You saved a little girl from getting hit by a van. What's the hustle? The more we're seen together, the better it is for my campaign. ? When you're an orphanage ? The city needs me. Take it easy, Batman. It looks like so much fun. And when "Hard knock life" came on, you started to pop around. That's one of my favorite songs from "Annie." It was fun to sing all of the songs. I'll bet. It must have been fun to work with Jamie Foxx. What was he like? He was like the nicest man I've ever met. It was fun to see all of the things with him. And make jokes around. He's a funny guy. Talented guy. Yes. He's really talented and funny. And you learned how to play it with sandy. Did a lot of tricks. And Cameron Diaz, I heard she was great to you on set. She was like a mom to me. She would make sure I didn't jump the wrong way or that she gave me a tip on live or something like that. You finished the movie. How is school going? School is going really well. My report card was really good. Yay. But -- What's your favorite subject? My favorite subject is science. Yeah? So, when you grow up, are you going to use that? Yes, I am. What are you going to do? I want to be a veterinarian. No kidding? Yes. Oh, sandy got excited when you said that. Pretty good news. Wonder what sandy's seeing over there right now. And so, now that it's summertime is coming up, you're not going to be in school, you know what you're going to be doing next? I don't know yet. Shh. Very good. Yeah, so, I'm on summer break right now. Okay. Well, enjoy it. And we cannot wait to see "Annie." It's coming out right around christmastime. I hope you come back when it comes out. Yeah. I hope so. It will be great. The movie comes out December 19th. You can watch the trailer on goodmorningamerica.com on Yahoo! And coming up, we're going
