Alyson Stoner: 'I Knew I Was The Second Fiddle To Dakota Fanning'

Alyson Stoner: 'I Knew I Was The Second Fiddle To Dakota Fanning'

Alyson Stoner goes truly make up free in this new shot from Zooey Magazine‘s As We Are portrait series.

The 21-year-old actress opened up about being the “second choice” to Dakota Fanning, who she shared an agent with when she was younger.

“My agent knew that I would make her less money. She would offer Dakota’s name first. I remember sitting in the casting agent’s office and would hear my agent on the phone talking about her lunch meeting with Dakota that day. I knew that I was the second fiddle…the second choice,” she shared.

Alyson added, “That immediately makes you criticize parts about yourself; it makes you keep trying to figure out what takes you out of the running before the casting agents even know you. It made me wonder why I was void of chance. I kind of wrestled against that with myself. I think for some people, it destroys them in the industry and in life. For others, they see that there is some injustice and proceed to rise above it. Hopefully the people who do rise above it, do it to for themselves to set an example for others and then they seek ways to ripple that effect to the rest of the community.”

Dakota is also pictured below after her classes at NYU in New York City on Thursday afternoon (March 12). 15+ pics inside…

Dakota Fanning & Freida Pinto Support 'India's Daughter' Doc at New York Screening!

Dakota Fanning, Freida Pinto, and Meryl Streep strike a pose as they arrive at the screening for India’s Daughter held at the Baruch College on Monday (March 9) in New York City.

The three ladies got together to light about a dozen candles honoring the documentary, which is about a medical student who died in India after being gang-raped on a bus in 2012.

“Tonight we light these candles to honor the value and the work of Jyoti Singh‘s short, promising life,” Meryl said at the event (via ChicagoTribune). “She was India’s daughter. Tonight she’s our daughter too.”

“Ultimately, this is a film that needs to go out. This is not a shame-India documentary,” Freida continued. “This is not just an India problem; this is a problem that inflicts almost every country in the world. There’s not a single country in 2015 that is free of sexual violence against women.”

Also pictured: Dakota spotted chatting on her cellphone while out and about in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City.
