If you don't have McKenna Grace on your radar just yet, allow the young actress to totally blow you away in her new movie, Gifted. In the inspirational film, McKenna plays Mary, a girl who is super intelligent, child prodigy, and gets the change to attend a prestigious private school but her uncle Frank, played by Chris Evans, doesn't want to her to go. He simply wants her to have a normal childhood.
The relationship between Mary and Frank is truly the heart of the film and when we caught up with McKenna, she of course had nothing but sweet things to say about her co-star.
"Chris is really kind and humble. I loved working with him," McKenna exclusively told us.
So yes, he really is as sweet IRL as you thought he was! And McKenna went on to explain she hopes there is one strong message anyone who watches the movie takes away from it.
"That love makes a family, and families come in all shapes, sizes and colors," she said.
For only being 10 years old, she's already wise beyond her years! We even have an exclusive clip from the movie too, that perfectly shows off just what type character Mary is and basically why McKenna is going to steal your heart. Watch:
Gifted hits theaters this Friday, April 7th.
