Celeb Moment: Yara Shahidi

Young and rising star, Yara Shahidi, who plays Olivia in the comedy Imagine That alongside Eddie Murphy (in theaters this FRIDAY) is no diva on set.  Just like any other 9-year-old girl, Yara has had her fair share of mishaps and embarrassing blunders. But what was the biggest one that happened to her while filming her latest flick? Here it is, straight from the source…

“One day, when I was headed to the set of Imagine That, I saw that Mr. Eddie [Murphy’s] car was headed that way too, so I decided to run onto set to tell everyone. I announced very loudly, ‘Get ready, Mr. Eddie is on his way to set!’ to all of the crew members. I couldn’t figure out why everyone was just looking at me. I slowly turned to my right and saw that Mr. Eddie was sitting on the couch, relaxing with a big smile on his face… He had been waiting for me the whole time! It was really funny.”
