'Florida Project' star Brooklynn Prince was on Jimmy Kimmel last night and was adorable of course


Brooklynn Prince, who plays 6-year-old Moonee in The Florida Project, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to discuss her film and the use of profanity in her role, specifically flipping the bird.

The adorable second-grader admitted when she had to use the middle finger in her scenes she initially used the wrong one. Then Kimmel asked Prince to use the gesture, to which she asked him and the audience, "Do you guys want me to?"

Following applause and cheers, Prince quickly delivered the move.

The Florida Project
follows Moonee, the daughter of a rebellious but caring mother. Moonee and her rambunctious group of friends try to keep themselves entertained during the summer in the tourist district of Central Florida, as the adults around them deal with hard times.

The movie was released on Oct. 6 to select theaters and has raked in $4.7 million as of Nov. 28, according to Box Office Mojo.
