Marsai Martin Sets Guinness World Record As Hollywood's Youngest Executive Producer

Marsai Martin, 16, has already made a name for herself as an award-winning actor in Hollywood. Now she can add Guinness World Record holder to her list of accomplishments. The “Black-ish” actor is featured in the 2021 edition of the Guinness World Records, the company announced Monday. Martin became the youngest Hollywood executive producer at age 14 14 years and 241 天, to be exact – when her movie “Little” was released in 2019. Martin executive-produced and starred in the comedy, which centers on an intimidating tech mogul, Jordan (Regina Hall), who gets trapped inside the body of her 13-year-old self (Martin). The movie is based on Martin’s own idea, inspired by the 1988 comedy “Big” starring Tom Hanks, she told Essence last year. She said she first workshopped the concept with her parents, Joshua Martin and Carol Martin, who serve as co-founder and vice president of her production company, Genius Productions, respectively. Last year, Martin and Genius Productions signed a first-look production deal with Universal. Martin tweeted on Monday that being recognized in the Guinness World Records was an “amazing honor.” “Who knew ‘Little’ would be historic?“ 她写了. “Huge thank you to everyone involved and my wonderful creators Momma & Daddy for making my dreams come true over and over again.” Y’allI done broke a record 😭 What an amazing honor. Who knew Little would be historic? Huge thank you to everyone involved and my wonderful creators Momma & Daddy for making my dreams come true over and over again. @GWR @littlethemovie pic.twitter.com/qJVFYX2Evm— Marsai Martin (@marsaimartin) 十二月 1, 2020 “Little” also stars Issa Rae and was directed by Tina Gordon, with the story by Tracy Oliver. Will Packer, Kenya Barris and Jamie Lopez produced, and Hall, Preston Holmes, and Martin’s father served as executive producers alongside the teenager. Prior to racking up a world record, Martin had already nabbed a few awards for her work on “Little.” In February, 这部电影为该演员赢得了两项全国有色人种协进会影像奖,分别是电影中的杰出女配角和电影中的杰出突破表演. 马丁告诉吉尼斯世界纪录,她希望她的工作和破纪录的成就能激励其他年轻的黑人女孩培养他们的想象力. “我希望所有年轻的黑人女孩都能真正看到改变是如何发生的, 做你自己, 只要你有任何可以疯狂的想象力,“ 她说. “你只活一次, 所以去吧。”
