It’s a rite of passage for many child stars, and it looks like Abigail Breslin was ready to take her turn: the August: Osage County star, 17, has posed topless for a sexy photoshoot.

The young actress, who made her big-screen debut at age 6 in Signs, posed for her Final Girl director Tyler Shields in two topless shots. In one Lolita-inspired image, she’s wrapped in a sheet, eyes smudged with dark kohl liner, with a lollipop dangling from her mouth. In the other (below), she’s submerged in a tub, covered in bubbles, blonde hair soaked but eyeliner untouched.

“I wanted to do something iconic with her, something simple but timeless,” Shields told E!. “She’s the perfect subject for something like this. Incredibly talented, beautiful actress but no one has ever seen her like this. There’s fun in that — showing someone to the world for the first time.”

Shields, whose book The Dirty Side of Glamour captures many more bold, daring and racy celebrity portraits, told PEOPLE Abigail was “amazing,” and added that the two built a level of trust on the Final Girl set, which he called “an insane and amazing experience. I’m the only person Abigail has ever yelled at — her performance was incredible!”

Breslin herself told E!, “I don’t make these conscious decisions to do it to, like, prove to the world that I’m grown up. I think people see my work and see what I do and see that I’m grown up … I do want to try different things, but it’s all for fun.”

Do you love the photos, or is it too much too soon? Weigh in below.

Why does this feel like Im looking at child porn. Go back to your good girl image Miley has the trashy child star image covered!

When the world expects MEN to do bottomless shots in order to “make it” in the film industry, THEN we can say there’s equality in the world.

I’m FED UP with this B.S. The country has not moved one inch forward on equality of the sexes…

17 year olds don’t need to be posing for these sorts of photos. I’m sorry, but that’s just tasteless.

Kiddie porn… such fun.

She’s 17….what in the world? I worry for our kids nowadays.

To me it’s just sad. Sad, sad, sad. Yes, you grow up fast in Hollywood (see Drew Barrymore, etc.) but you should not have to do this. Ever. Especially at 17. SMH.

As a woman, I found these pictures disturbing. She has such a childish face…this whole concept seems incredible wrong. She is just trying too hard to break-away from her “child star” image. It’s sad.

Next comes total nudity and tattoos. Can’t wait.

I am not a prude, nor do I think a woman’s sexuality should be policed. However, knowing that a bunch of adults stood around and took photos of a nude teenager who can’t sign a legal waiver/document without a guardian to co-sign gives me a strange and sad feeling. Perhaps I am basing this on my own maturity as a 17-year old a decade ago and she is far more in tune with herself and sexuality to be completely OK with this. The older I get the less I understand. Good luck, Abigail. This industry is brutal and cruel.

What’s disgusting! She’s 17! Why does every actor think they have to do this?
