Abigail Breslin Marks First Holiday Season Without Her Dad

Abigail Breslin is mourning the loss of her father this holiday season.  

On Christmas Eve, the Zombieland actress, 25, opened up about her experience during the “holiday-grief season” in an emotional post about missing her dad, Michael Breslin, on Instagram. 

Breslin’s father passed away in February due to complications from COVID-19 at age 78. 

In a Notes app screenshot, Breslin called the holiday “a weird one for me,” adding, “I love the holiday season and am so thankful I get to spend it with my mom, my brothers, my friends and my boyfriend… I’m truly blessed. But it’s hard to know I can’t call my daddy and wish him a merry Christmas or send him a gift certificate to a good steakhouse (lol).” 

She described grief as a “tricky little monster” and revealed that “some days are harder than others” since her father’s passing, stating, “I wish that there was an expiration date on missing someone.”
