Mrs Fanning, you are 22 years old and already two decades in front of the camera. What days do you feel like the veteran on the film set?
recently, something happened very Strange. I was the youngest colleague on the Set. Since these children were actors with their mothers, and I suddenly realized: That was a couple of years of my life. In the meantime, they have not been taught by a teacher, so you don't miss the fabric of the school. I know only too well. I suddenly felt old. But inclined it was. I was always the Youngest.
If you see your old movies, you will have a good or a bad feeling?
It is to me sometimes a bit embarrassing, as I looked at the time, or how certain things have played out. Nevertheless, it is nice. If I have children, you can see your mother in these films, the full documentation of my Childhood and youth. Who can show his children something like that? I am not one of the colleagues, who say they could not bear to see themselves on the screen. I can't watch my movies often enough.
at the beginning of all of this is probably a game for you. When was it a serious Job?
I have the Job is always taken seriously. As long as I can remember, I wanted to be as professional as possible. Nevertheless, it was fun for me. My sister Dakota and I have dressed at home all the time, and the Theater played. You should see our private films. I always knew where the camera was, and is, produced me in every second. A better life than on a movie set can't give it to me. I'm like made for this. The turning point came with the Film "Phoebe in Wonderland". I was nine years old and was occupied for the role of a girl with Tourette's syndrome.
This was the first Time a foreign?
Before, I was always the "daughter" or "sister". Suddenly, there was to not really play something I knew and I was not. Before, it was: just Be yourself, be natural. And: don't Look in the camera. Now I had to work out a role and felt the responsibility to want to do it right. At once I knew: If I try, then this is a career for life.
That sounds unusually disciplined for a nine-year-old.
I was Disciplined always. I come from a family of athletes. In front of the big, important scenes, I feel like an athlete before the Competition. You have to be mentally prepared. In front of the camera, nothing happens just like that.
In the past few years, you become a style icon for young women.
For many colleagues is the red carpet a necessary Evil. I love such performances. This has to do with my love for fashion and everything related to. It doesn't matter to me what people say about my Outfit.
The comments on the Social Media channels and beads on them?
For many girls and young women is a huge pressure. I can't say that it leaves me completely cold. Some comments are impossible, and below the belt line. To not just read, but can't be the solution. People who insult others on these channels, must be held accountable. I was raised according to the Motto: If you say anything Nice, then keep it to yourself.
the world premiere of "the ways of life – The Roads Not Taken" they wore Black. Why?
from a fashion perspective this was a huge thing for me. Normally, I never wear Black. At the end of the whole Ensemble in Black and wore, to the delight of our Director, Sally Potter. It is your Aesthetic sense corresponded. For me, my Outfit represented the old Glamour of Hollywood.Updated Date: 14 August 2020, 16:19
