Mae Whitman is more than just plant ... uh ... Ann.
The 24-year-old actress was working long before playing Michael Cera's hilariously forgettable onscreen girlfriend in "Arrested Development." As a child, she appeared in films like "When a Man Loves a Woman," "One Fine Day" and "Independence Day." In recent years, Whitman has carved a niche playing complicated young adults in "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World," the television series "Parenthood" and, most recently, the new film "The Perks of Being a Wallflower."
Adapted by Stephen Chbosky from his seminal teen novel of the same name, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" follows a group of friends as they navigate the turbulent waters of high school and young adulthood. What sets the film apart from nominal coming-of-age films -- besides the early '90s setting and resulting killer soundtrack -- is that none of the characters in "Perks" are traditional high school »
