It’s taken years of hard work and dedication for the likes of Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson to become household names and Oscar-winning actors. But even they could still learn a thing or two from kids. No, seriously. Have you noticed how they’re able to maneuver their way around tough questions, making you totally forget your original point? The following kids are about to give adult actors a run for their money. Just watching them turn on the waterworks and ramble on endlessly makes our hair stand up.
1. Who stole the doughnut? Not I.
All this kid needed to hear was “What’s wrong?” and his acting skills were activated. Yes, he has doughnut residue all over his lips, but that’s not going to stop him from denying that he stole one (or asking for another one).
2. Toddler turns on the charm and the tears come pouring down
Don’t let her cute face fool you, this young girl can cry on cue. We hope she remembers that with great power comes great responsibility.
3. The case of the missing doughnut 2.0
Little Emma has chocolate glaze all over her mouth. And, yet, she’s able to categorically deny stealing a doughnut while blaming her brother for eating one himself — and rubbing said chocolate doughnut glaze all over her face. Bravo, missy.
4. John turns on the charm
Someone’s been messing with the sprinkles jar and John says he has no idea who would do such a thing. Sure, there are sprinkles coming out of his nose, but he’s sure it wasn’t him. With his innocent smile, who wouldn’t believe him?
5. Forget about the doughnuts, what about the flowers and strawberries?
OK, seriously…What’s up with these kid Oscar contenders and their obsession with stealing doughnuts? Three-year-old Tiffany told the most long-winded story in the hopes of distracting her mom. Even with the evidence hidden under her hat, Tiff finds a way to weave her dad and her dog into tall tale.
