Quvenzhane Wallis

I'm Only 10

And I'm Bigger than Cameron Diaz!

Quvenzhane Wallis
-- the 10-year-old who was nominated for Best Actress this year for "Beasts of the Southern Wild" -- is going to make a fortune for her next movie ... and that's just for starters.

Q is set to star in the movie remake of "Annie."  The producers had to get approval from a judge because she's a minor, and we got the legal docs, showing what this little girl will deposit in her bank account.

-- $750,000 base salary
-- $750,000 bonus if the movie does super good
-- 5% of profits
-- 5% of all merchandising
-- 10% of sound track album royalties

Now get this ... Q's co-stars are Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz.  According to her contract, her name cannot be lower than second position.  Realistically, that means Q will appear above Cameron.

Q gets unlimited Wi-Fi in her trailer. 

She gets veto power on any bloopers before they're released.

When Q promotes the flick ... they have to give her 3 dresses from which to choose and she gets to keep the one she wears.  But one caveat -- she can't sell or lend the garment to anyone.

And the best one ... Her image can be used to promote the film but NOT the sale of alcohol, tobacco, firearms, feminine hygiene products and pharmaceuticals.  It also prohibits producers using Q's image for gambling, EXCEPT her punim CAN appear on Pachinko machines (everybody's favorite Japanese arcade game).

Not bad for an orphan.

I used to love the story of Annie. Hope this girl has a good voice :) Shirley temple sure did and those big flowing golden curls were so adorable. Loved that movie. Hope this little girl does it justice as it's a wonderful opportunity for her.

sounds like her parents are letting her success go to their heads. no 10 year old would come up with those terms. so her parents are trying to milk the producers for what they can get.. hope her movie is a flop. annie was good in the 80's . it should not be remade again.

Why is this website writing stories about the kid instead of the agent, oh so now this sh¡t site wants us to think a 10 year old is making these demands. Where is the demands for Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx the adults in this movie?!

This girl is a complete PAIN IN THE ASS at such a young age.

I saw her at a screening of that p.o.s. movie, where she was already a little diva.

Ugh.

Now that Oprah has taught a generation of girls to talk about the wealth and success they're entitled to, maybe someone can work on humility now.

And how do you pronounce that name? It would be nice if TMZ would spell it out phonetically for me.

She was excellent in Beasts so I'm sure she has a great career ahead of her whether this movie is a success or not.
