Dakota Fanning takes a walk to grab dinner with friends on Tuesday (March 27) in New York City.

Multiple news outlets are reporting that the 18-year-old actress lost out to Chloe Moretz for the leading role in a remake of the classic horror film Carrie – but it’s not true!

    That movie was her calling. It represents what she is. Dakota was born to show us what she really is through that movie.

    Dakota thrives on acting roles like this. It’s what she craves. Dakota is the real Carrie. The movie is not required.

    Dakota knew better than to be in some remake of a CLASSIC.
    Smart girl.

    The last person i see fit for playing carrie is chloe moretz! dakota would actually be the most ideal and believable for a remake, but smart to pass up remaking a classic because it could be a flop

  • Sabrina

    Anyway, Chloe Moretz is, as Dakora, a fantastic actress. She also fits the role too. She has that strange face, like Dakota, yes, mysterious and strange, but beautiful. They both are great, so that’s ok.
