Marsai Martin is officially a Guinness World Record holder for being the youngest Hollywood executive producer!
The 16-year-old actress won the title for her film Little, which was released in 2019. Although Martin is now 16 years old, she technically broke the record in 2019, as a result of her work on the film “Little.” She just wasn’t presented with this award — and officially declared a record-breaker by Guinness — until now.
“Y’all…I done broke a record ? What an amazing honor. Who knew Little would be historic? Huge thanks to Kenya Barris, Tracy Oliver, Tina Gordon, Will Packer, James Lopez, and our WPP team … Thank you to our dope friends at Universal. Eric Baiers, Peter Cramer, Donna Langley, and my wonderful creators Momma & Daddy for making my dreams come true over and over again,” she wrote on Instagram.
At the time of it’s April 12, 2019 release, Marsai was 14 years, 241 days old.
“To be able to create a film, star in it, be with your favorite stars, and actually seeing that entire experience was so amazing,” Marsai said. “It was so fun and so exciting because with my mind, I always want to create things that make me happy and that I would actually imagine myself doing or being a part of. With those types of ideas that I have, it’s insane when it actually comes into fruition.”
“I was very shocked for sure. For me, I could have never imagined being a part of something like this, I am so beyond grateful to be part of it,” she said about being in the “2021 Guinness Book of World Records.
