Sarah Michelle Gellar Makes Rare Public Appearance With Daughter Charlotte at L.A. Screening of ‘Do Revenge’

Sarah Michelle Gellar had a surprise guest by her side at her latest screening—her 12-year-old daughter, Charlotte Grace Prinze.

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum attended a special event in L.A. for her new movie, Do Revenge, in which she plays the headmaster of a preppy high school. While Gellar has her hands full in the film with two teenagers (played by Camila Mendes and Maya Hawke) who attempt to get revenge on their school bullies, it was Gellar's own real-life daughter who stole the show at the event.

In one snap, the Cruel Intentions star was seen smiling as she posed for the camera in a sparkly brown sequin dress from Prabal Gurung and black stilettos. Right next to her, Charlotte pursed her lips to give her mother a mock kiss on the cheek.

The tween embraced the Barbiecore fashion trend with a hot pink blazer and slacks, along with a white undershirt and white sneakers. To match the ensemble, Charlotte also rocked bright pink eye shadow.

Charlotte is one of two children that Gellar shares with her husband, Freddie Prinze Jr.. The pair also have a 10-year-old son named Rocky James Prinze. Gellar and Prinze tied the knot back in 2002 after meeting on the set of their hit horror film, I Know What You Did Last Summer.

The mother of two often avoids sharing photos of her children's faces on social media, and when she does, she usually covers them with emojis, as seen in the post below, which she shared last January.

While Gellar left the mother/daughter shots to the red carpet, she offered more angles from the event of her own outfit on Instagram, where she posted a slideshow that she captioned, “Fit My fairy-glam mothers.” She tagged her hairstylist, Mara Roszak, her makeup artist, Rachel Goodwin, her facial masseur, Lord Gavin McLeod-Valentine and her stylist, Tara Swennen.

In other snaps from the screening, Gellar was captured on the red carpet with her Do Revenge co-stars, including Mendes, Hawke and Jenn Kaytin Robinson.
