(Reuters) - Actress Bridgit Mendler poses at a media event for the animated film, "The Secret World of Arriety", in Beverly Hills, California February 4, 2012. "Arrietty" is based on Mary Norton's children's book series "The Borrowers" where a family of very tiny people live undetected underneath the floorboards of a country house, "borrowing" things they need from human beings. Mendler voices the spirited "borrower" Arrietty who breaks the family rule when she befriends a human boy who moves into the country house. "Arrietty" was originally released as a Japanese film by Studio Ghibli in 2010 and has now been re-recorded in English with Mendler in the title role. Picture taken February 4, 2012.
