Let’s come up with a list, shall we?
- Go to school
- Have a pet
- Have a birthday party
- Appear on a movie pretending to be raped and walking around topless…
Wait?! What was that last one? Rob over at SayAnything brought this issue to my attention in a recent post. Now this could be a publicity stunt, the original source was the New York Daily News. Personally, I don’t care what the story– it’s not worth having the girl go through it or for anyone to see it. I’m sure they’re saying it’s all in the name of art, but come on!
This quote really gets to me:
“It’s not just the rape scene – the whole story is challenging Dakota as an actress,” Fanning’s longtime agent, Osbrink, told me. “And I’ve never been so proud of her in my life. I’ve seen the dailies, and in every scene she gets better and better.”
If this is what the agent thinks is a good move for a child actress then it’s time to get a new agent. I’m seriously afraid of where this world is going when you can take an innocent girl and have her doing these kinds of things. Where are the parents? Where is anyone with common sense?
