Dakota Fanning recently discussed among other things the atmospheric transformations in her ecological drama. And she also talked about the female image which is so common in Hollywood.

Dakota Fanning started out in the entertainment industry when she was very young. She was barely a little child when she won the award for best young actress for her role in “I Am Sam” in which Sean Penn plays a dad with a learning disability. 

The speech she delivered upon getting the award was simply exquisite and sounded unbelievably mature coming from the mouth of a seven year old. She later on took on even more sophisticated roles. 

Today, she is a 20 year old movie star who gets to play a part in the movie Night Moves. Dakota Fanning has the role of Dena, an environmentalist who employs some eco-terrorist methodologies in order to blow up a dam. Of course, the plan fails and the group she is leading is left to fend for itself. 

“For Kelly’s sake, she would want me to say that they’re not ‘eco-terorrists,’ and she doesn’t know what an ‘eco-terrorist’ is,” says Fanning. “The things that people do for causes result in very small changes and sometimes you never even see any results, so for these people, they need something that’s immediate that they can see. They want to make a big statement, unlike turning off the light switch or not running your air conditioning all day.” 

Fanning discussed the fact that sometimes people decide to take a course of action that can have severe repercussions. And they often do not realize their mistake until later on when it is too late. The sort of thinking that wants everything to be big can backfire easily. 

Fanning nevertheless spoke of how every person was responsible for the survival of the planet and how by not caring we were taking away the rights of future generations. Another thing about which she feels strongly is the Hollywood image of women as weak and clingy. 

When all that is shown is females whose lives revolve around males, things can get pretty one-sided. They have to take more initiative and portray pioneer women who make it on their own in the world. It is equality of the two sexes that Fanning wants shown on screen. 

As a child actor, Fanning got to do her bit alongside such famous actors as Tom Cruise and Robert De Niro. And she received her best career advice from Steven Spielberg, who directed her alongside Cruise in a big-budget remake of War of the Worlds.

“I worked with him when I was young and we’ve kept in touch—he’s a very big part of my life,” said Fanning. “I was going through a very difficult time and he told me, ‘This isn’t the first difficult time you’re going to go through—there will be another one—but you just have to keep following your path and experiencing your own journey.’”

And she will continue the journey of acting out roles and alternative egos on screen as she enters adulthood and her later years. “When I’m working, even though it’s sometimes challenging and difficult, there’s still no place I would rather be,” she said with a smile on her face. “That’s how you know you really love what you’re doing—when you’re at the lowest point, you’ve slept for two hours, it’s zero degrees, you’re starving, you’re tired, everybody’s snapping at each other, and you think, ‘I still love being here.’”
