Diaz gives an interview to Ryan Seacrest during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her role in the film Annie.
It’s kind of like a brand new film. There’s new characters, it takes place in the modern age, the modern day. The generation of kids who are going to see this Annie without having seen the original, this is going to be their Annie. This is what they’re going to know, this is the cast that they’re going to know. And because the cast is so diverse, I think they’ll be able to see themselves in it. More diverse groups of kids will be able to see themselves in it, which I’m really proud of.
