Dakota Fanning's Guide to Growing Up in Hollywood: On Acting, Aging and Leaving Child Stardom Behind

Dakota Fanning's Guide to Growing Up in Hollywood: On Acting, Aging and Leaving Child Stardom Behind
"I didn't stay quiet, I don't think," Dakota Fanning considers, before deadpanning far more certainly, "I don't think I've ever stayed quiet in my entire life." I've just asked Fanning, 23, if she went method for her latest film, the grueling Western drama, Brimstone. Not that it's particularly easy to picture the actress being the type of nightmare that mails her co-stars used condoms or refuses to break character while texting or whatever staying in character might inspire here, with Fanning playing an old-timey prostitute on the run from retribution. (Stabbing Guy Pearce because he took the last bag of Doritos at craft services?) More so, the question was whether the challenge of playing mute (her character's tongue is cut out as a result of a series of truly unfortunate events that play out in the film—out now) necessitated that Fanning remain silent on set. "Oh, no! No way!" she exclaims, letting out a high-pitched

Tribeca: Why Dakota Fanning Doesn't Consider Herself a 'Famous Person'

Tribeca: Why Dakota Fanning Doesn't Consider Herself a 'Famous Person'
Read More: Watch: Elizabeth Banks Investigates Dakota Fanning in Chilling 'Every Secret Thing' Trailer When Dakota Fanning burst onto the scene at age seven in 2011's "I Am Sam," she already had the poise of a seasoned actress. Though she'd only appeared in small television roles, Fanning gave Sean Penn a run for his money as his astute daughter. (She stole most of their scenes together). For a while, Fanning had a corner on the market playing precocious children in bigger Hollywood productions. Now, with 55 credits to her name, Fanning has transcended that ability. Her recent choices have been decidedly risky: she's played a rape victim ("Hounddog"), delinquent teens ("Night Moves" and "The Runaways), and now a pregnant young woman alongside Richard Gere in "Franny," which recently premiered at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.

2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions List: An Introduction

Whether you are a filmmaker, or one of the Sundance programmers whose task it is to identify the films that make up a line-up, it is indeed the most wonderful, panic-filled and nerve racking time of the year. The 31st edition of the Sundance Film Festival kicks off on January 22nd with Park City and Salt Lake City playing host to some of the more innovative, thought-provoking narrative and non-fiction films of 2015. Last year, a Jenga tall order of 4,057 features and 8,161 shorts were submitted. Now let’s think about those numbers for a second.

Twenty years ago, Terry Zwigoff’s Crumb claimed the Grand Jury Prize Documentary award, Living in Oblivion‘s Tom Dicillo was honored with the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, and Edward Burns’ micro-budgeted The Brothers McMullen (there is a read-worthy, lively, eleventh hour account on how it was submitted to the fest in Ted Hope’s “Hope

Dakota Fanning: 'I'm not going to flaunt my private life'

Dakota Fanning: 'I'm not going to flaunt my private life'
Dakota Fanning has spoken about how she coped with growing up in the public eye.

The 20-year-old rose to fame at the age of 7 in the 2001 film I Am Sam and has since gone on to appear in Charlotte's Web, Hounddog and The Twilight Saga.

Speaking to Town & Country magazine, the actress insisted that it is possible to lead a private life in show business if you choose to.

"I'm just never going to parade my personal life," Fanning explained. "If you choose to not do it, it's not hard to not do it... Any part of an artistic business is made better by there being a little mystery. That's what movies are about."

However, the actress said it has not been an easy ride.

"Because people saw me grow up, there's this weird sort of ownership that they feel for me and that is... difficult," she continued.

Anyone Scandalized By Dakota Fanning’s New Nude Scene Stopped Following Her Career in 2006

We’re not claiming to be Dakota Fanning experts or anything. We like think of the five hours we spend each night watching her old movies and researching the veracity of her IMDb page as pleasure rather than business, but either way we know that Dakota Fanning’s much-touted nude scene in the upcoming film Very Good Girls is nowhere near her most scandalous cinematic moment. “Yeah, well, I’ve never done that before and I’m very newly allowed to do that,” the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 star told MTV about her nude sex scene. “I was newly 18, so yeah, it was, it’s kind of a sensitive thing, but it’s a part of life.” ” Added Dakota, “No one’s ever comfortable [doing love scenes].” Okay, fine, but how comfortable were we supposed to be watching Dakot’s other films?

Exclusive: Zoe Bell, Robert Forster to Star in Indie Hollywood Satire From 'For Ellen' Producer

  • Indiewire
Indie-film producer Jen Gatien (“For Ellen,” “Hounddog”) has pulled together a new project that will bite the hand that doesn’t feed. Written and directed by first-time filmmaker Justin Daly, “Douglas Brown” is a Hollywood satire inspired by the inside knowledge he gleaned from grandmother Ingrid Bergman. James McCaffrey, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Zoe Bell, Bill Sage, Dan Hedeya and Robert Forster star in the “Player”-esque story of a reclusive movie star who hires a private detective after he’s anonymously blackmailed. Things turn violent when an aspiring writer is fingered for the crime in a dangerous case of mistaken identity. “It is always incredibly gratifying to work with first-time directors and give a platform to an unheard voice,” says Gatien, “but since I have known Justin since our high school years, it means that much more. Over the years, I have seen Justin work tirelessly to make this film...

Dakota Fanning: 'I still love life on set'

She didn't think of herself as a child star, even when she was one. Dakota Fanning talks about growing up making movies and her latest role as a teenager with terminal cancer in Now Is Good

'Being brave lets no one off the grave," wrote Philip Larkin in Aubade. "Death is no different whined at than withstood." Tell that to Tessa, the 17-year-old heroine of Ol Parker's film Now Is Good, whose attitude is more rage against the dying of the light, while wisecracking. With her life foreshortened by leukaemia, Tessa draws up a checklist of experiences, including having sex and taking drugs, to work through before she dies. Knowing that Tessa is played by Dakota Fanning, Hollywood's pop-eyed poppet-of-choice for more than a decade, makes it difficult not to anticipate The Bucket List: The Early Years. Difficult but wrong. Against the odds, Now Is Good is good – very good.

Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron Deliver in 'The Paperboy' Trailer

Just like how the 2007 indie film "Hounddog" became synonymously known as "The Dakota Fanning Rape Movie," Lee Daniels' sensationalistic new crime drama "The Paperboy" will most certainly carry the stigma of being the flick where Nicole Kidman pees on Zac Efron.

Now Yahoo! Movies has a trailer for "The Paperboy," which caused quite a stir when it debuted at Cannes earlier this summer, and we can tell already it wasn't because this delivery boy was missing houses.

The story involves an intrepid reporter (Matthew McConaughey) and his younger brother (Zac Efron) digging a little too deep into the case of death row inmate Hillary (John Cusack), convicted of murdering a Florida sheriff.

While the footage immediately brings to mind classic southern crime movies like "In the Heat of the Night" and McConaughey's own "A Time to Kill," it also looks to have one of the wildest, most unbridled performances of Kidman's career,

'Prometheus' Star Logan Marshall-Green To Play Tennessee Williams In Carson McCullers Biopic 'Lonely Hunter'

Actor Logan Marshall-Green is hardly a household name, but after paying his bills working in theater and various TV shows — most recently in TNT's canceled "Dark Blue" — he transitioned to movies. After a supporting role in "Brooklyn's Finest" and being one of the few bright spots in 2010's predictably banal "Devil," it's Marshall-Green's upcoming role in Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" that quickly earned him a spot on our list of 10 actors we're tipping for stardom. The actor's next turn will see him skip on genre fare and rely more on his theatrical acumen, as he is set to portray playwright Tennessee Williams in a new biopic.

Full Moon Flims have announced that Marshall-Green will play Williams in "Lonely Hunter," a biopic about Southern novelist Carson McCullers, who wrote "The Heart is A Lonely Hunter" at the ripe age of 23 and eventually lived for a few years in Paris where she
