Age 11

"(About her "Just Go With It" co-star, Griffin Gluck) Griffin’s great. He has spent every day with me on the water slides, horseback riding. We’re always together,” says Madison. “And I’ve been able to take him as my little brother and he’s so great. We’re always constantly joking with each other. He’s so much fun."

"(About filming "Just Go With It") The set was really not work. One day, we spent three hours in a swimming pool for a scene – you wouldn’t call that work. Plus, we were in Hawaii. We learned how to kayak and ride horses for this film. I have asked my mother since I was little to take me to Hawaii to swim with the dolphins. And when I read this I saw dolphins, Hawaii – I was so excited. It was so much fun."

"(About her role in "Just Go With It") My character really wants to be an actress – that’s her main focus – so she’s constantly trying to do accents. She’s so excited to play Kiki she starts using her Cockney accent. It’s just a really cool role to be able to play, because you get to be two different people in the same movie."

"(About Keeping it Real)As long as I keep my feith in God and I keep my head held high I'm definitely going on the straight path and the moment I start leaning off I am going home. This is one of the most important things my mom always said 'If you start changing, Bailee, We are going home'."

Age 10

"(About costar Tobey McGuire at the Critics' Choice Awards) He came here tonight and he just held my hand and when I was waiting to hear he squeezed it and put his other hand on top."

"(About her character in "Brothers") Her worst fear comes true that her dad never comes home. She’s stuck in the middle where she has to take care of her oblivious sister and she has so many feelings. She wants to cry and scream but she has to stay tough and keep her family together.”

"(About being a Taylor Swift fan) I have her posters all over my room, If I had a chance to meet her I would drop over dead."

"(About giving back) "This event is so important to me because you know, it's so nice to be able to give back to people and show them why I'm here and you know it's not about the press, you know being here is about really just put a smile on this family's faces who have gone through such know, miracles and had to watch their children go through all these painful treatments and it's so nice to give them back and tell them how proud I am of them"

"(About where she sees herself in 10 years) In ten years I hope to keep on doing this and I hope that I can maybe have a function on my own so I can you know, help in something else or I can take in kids and help them and hopefully I can keep coming to this amazing, incredible events and tell everyone how proud I am of them. Hopefully have the next step on the ladder"

"(About being part of "Starlight Children's Foundation") “It was two years ago that I first attended a Starlight event,” remembers Bailey. “While listening to Corbin Bleu [Starlight’s national spokesperson] speak that night, I remember turning to my mommy and telling her that I wanted to make a difference. She turned back to me and said, ‘You will’ and our prayers were answered this summer when I filmed 'Letters to God.' I spent time with children and families whose lives have been impacted by illness and realized that the struggle is not only for the child that is sick, but for the entire family. I also saw the power that hope, love and compassion have in helping each child find light and laughter during some of their darkest times, which is exactly what Starlight brings to the lives of families every day. I am so honored and blessed to be a part of Starlight and am so very excited for the opportunity to show that no matter how young we are, we can make a difference."

"(About working on "Brothers") You know, Natalie [Portman] was such a sweetheart. Natalie and Tobey [Maguire] and Jake [Gyllenhaal] – Jake was so nice. And I got to work with this little girl named Taylor Geare. I had to play her big sister so I was kind of like her big sister and she was like my little sister so I would look after her and stuff. I think I got really close, everyone got really close by the end of the film."

"(About working on "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark") It was probably the most hardest experience of my life. Because I've always wanted to get to do a thriller or a horror film, because every single scene was either ripping or tearing or crying and fighting these monsters. But it was just so cool to be able to work on something so different. And I loved it. I loved getting to do it. It's going to be great. The special effects are awesome. It's going to be another one of those films where you [jump and scream]."

Age 9

"(About working on "Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh") Actually the funny part was I had to record Twelve Days of Christmas the day before we shot and I had no singing experience so I'm not sure how it turned out. The guy was telling me to go up and I was going down with my notes, so I'm excited to see how it turned out and I'm not excited [laughs]"

"(About why she loves Girl Prep) I'm so honored and so happy to be here right now because it's so nice to give back to people that are hurting, actually, and you know I get throught that too and it's really nice to encourage these girls and build up their self-esteem and let them know that they are wonderful, they are beautiful and they are great".

Age 8

(About who she admires in the business) "Probably Dakota Fanning, she's worked her way up and she did so many great roles and so many great stuff and hopefully when I'm her age I get to do what she's been doing."

"(About going back to school) I love school. It's amazing and when I go back I get to see all my friends and they are so sweet to me. But I love acting, but all my teachers and all my friend there support me and they're always so sweet. They get excited when they see me on TV. They're always so kind to me. I walk into the classroom and they all hug me."

Age 7

"I'm originally from Fort Lauderdale, but I've wanted to move to LA my whole life. Well, not my whole entire life, but at least since I was five. I love it. I have a lot of friends out here, and it's just really fun."

"(about her character's relationship with her older brother in "Bridge to Terabithia") May Belle is trying to make Jess play with her, because Jess just walks away and does not want to play, so that's what makes the end of the movie such a touching thing."
