Rowan Blanchard Doesn't Want to Be Labeled an Activist

On campaigning for a lot of causes but not considering herself an activist: “I’m not an activist anymore! I won’t call myself that anyway. I would say I’m an actress and I read books. So I’m smart, but I’m not claiming the mantle of activism anymore.”

On how she decided that: “I decided against it probably a year ago, but I didn’t tell anyone. It’s just a personal thing I’ve been deciding for myself, you know? But I don’t want to be labeled as an activist. That was something I self-identified with for a long time. But I was always struggling with the fact that, the reality is, I still want to be an actress; I want to be a director; I want to be active and help create real change, but I’m still playing this very mainstream game. And it gets to the point where ethics cross each other. It became harder to touch what it meant to truly be an ‘activist’ in my life. Maybe I’ll identify with that label again at some point, but for now, I think I’m just me. I lost the meaning for a second.”

On trying to shop with more eco-consciousness: “I’d like to educate myself more on how to dress sustainably, but if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I only spend real money on vintage clothes. I don’t know how those clothes were made originally, but it’s obviously a sustainable way to shop—buy things that are already out in the world.”

“The more people that get on board with making their clothes sustainably, [the more will] realize it doesn’t have to look like a plant to be made from a plant. … It doesn’t have to look or feel weird to be made from something that is ‘weird,’” Dakota told THR.
