Cameron Diaz Reveals Her Ms. Hannigan Look From Annie Remake

Sharing on Twitter, Diaz herself says Hannigan "ain't pretty." This might be true. The dye-job is rough, while her hair is frizzy. The jewelry is remarkably cheap and garish looking.

Sandra Bullock Could Be Miss Hannigan In The New Annie

Alright, maybe little girls spend more fantasizing about planning Annie someday, but for adult actresses, the pickings don't get much better than Miss Hannigan. The blowsy, funny, washed-up drunk who's put in charge of a girl's orphanage, Miss Hannigan gets many of the best songs in Annie, nearly all of the good lines, and is the rare part in musical theater: a really, really good one for a woman who's not under 30
