For nearly all of her 17 years, Agnes Bruckner has been told how mature she is for her age. Not surprising, given that she was just 11 when she started on the The Bold and the Beautiful From now on, the star of this year's Sundance Film Festival favorite Blue Car is destined to be known for her acting: Her performance, as one reviewer put it, "will be the envy of actresses twice her age." To land the role of Meg a teen poet who falls in love with her English teacher, Agnes actually had to lose her wise-beyond-her-years demeanor. "They wanted me an awkward girl," she recalls. "[The Producer] thought my breasts were too big, so I wore a sports bra. I didn't put any makeup on, let every pimple show."
