Marsai Martin, 16, is being recognized by Guinness After she broke the Guinness World Record for the youngest Hollywood Executive Producer.
When she produced the 2019 film “Little,” she was only 14 years old, in which she also starred alongside Regina Hall and Issa Rae.
It feels insane, honestly, “It feels crazy, honestly,” “A world record? That’s insane.”, she said
Although Marasi is now 16 years old, in 2019 she technically broke the record, but she was not presented with this award and so far has officially declared Guinness a record-breaker.
“To be able to create a film, to star in it and be with your favorite stars, and actually seeing that entire experience was so amazing,” Martin said during the presentation of the certificate.
Marsai, who came to fame starring in “Black-ish” as Dianne, reportedly pitched the idea for the film herself when she was 10 to “Black-ish” producer Kenya Barris.
Last year after the pitch was approved, Martin signed an agreement with Universal Pictures to create scripted projects.
The record makes sure to mention that when ‘Tiny’ was released, she was just 14 and 241 days old.
“She is not only tremendously talented in front of the camera but offers a unique perspective as a creator and producer that will resonate with all audiences,” Universal Pictures President Peter Cramer said in a statement to CNN.
In the 2021 edition of the physical Guinness World Records book, Martin will appear and her manufacturing company, Genius Productions, is currently working on another movie, “step monster.”
