Dakota Fanning: 'A Film Is A Film No Matter The Size'

Dakota Fanning shares a laugh with boyfriend Jamie Strachan while out in New York City on Sunday afternoon (June 8).

The two were spotted laughing and matching their clothes after a pickup at Ralph Lauren.

Recently chatting about her upcoming films with MTV, Dakota opened up about picking out some indies after a few big budget films.

“Some of the movies that I’ve done more recently have been more independent, smaller films, and I’m totally cool with that,” she shared. “And I’m cool with larger scale films, as long as I feel connected to it.”

Dakota added, “I never really think about the size of a film when I’m choosing what film to be in. A film is a film no matter the size of it. It’s like a Dr. Seuss quote.”

Like Stanislavsky said, “Remember: there are no small parts, only small actors.”

One of the most poignant moments in cinema might just be in Lucky Them (2013). Johnny Depp appears only briefly on screen as the character Matthew Smith. Yet that moment is indescribably powerful.

In The Motel Life (2012), Dakota, as Annie James, plays a small role, albeit supporting role, yet she utterly makes the picture, her stunning acting is that good. When the picture’s main character, Frank, unexpectedly calls on Annie at home and Annie’s mom automatically opens the door, Annie maintains perfect composure, as perfect as her makeup she’s wearing, despite the uncomfortable and awkward moment of candid revelation to Frank of Annie’s normal household milieu. A different film could have very well just as easily revolved around Annie’s engaging character, Annie is far stronger than Frank, after all, much deeper, wholly more passionate, far more interesting, but even in the small supporting role, Dakota makes that movie come to life.

The trailer for Very Good Girls, is magic, can’t wait to see it — and hopefully the more of her.
