Dakota Fanning on Saying No to Certain Roles
In her interview, Dakota talks about what roles she would not take. “Being empowered to say no is pretty cool. Even when I was little, any of my friends or family would say, ‘Dakota doesn’t do anything she doesn’t want to.’ And I don’t. I’m very sensitive to energy and vibes, and if a vibe is off somewhere, then I’m out. I’ll just go. If it’s not working for me? Just no.”
She also says, “Don’t do a role that isn’t complicated enough for you. It’s ok to say no to parts if it doesn’t serve you, or the story. Or the [gratuitous] sex scene? It could be a great project, but you don’t need that. Sometimes it’s hard to stick to but, ultimately, it pays off.”
