Flashback Friday: Following Sophia Grace From the Computer Screen to the Big Screen

The tiny YouTube star is moving on to bigger and better things with her upcoming role in Rob Marshall's Into the Woods film. logo

Ten-year-old Sophia Grace Brownlee got her first taste of stardom when she became a YouTube sensation singing Nicki Minaj's hit song "Superbass" alongside her equally adorable friend Rosie, dressed in a fluffy pink tutu. She's now venturing into the much-less-pink and certainly much-less-fluffy world of Stephen Sondheim musicals, having recently been cast as Little Red in the film adaptation of Sondheim's Into the Woods.

Regardless of how you feel about this casting choice, you've gotta admit, she's pretty darn cute. At least Ellen DeGeneres thinks so.
