Dakota Fanning Opens Up About Working With Quentin Tarantino on 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'

Dakota Fanning takes over the cover of the new issue of PorterEdit, opening up about her new movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Here’s what the 25-year-old actress shared:

On finally getting to work with Quentin Tarantino on Once Upon a Time In Hollywood: “I knew Quentin was making this film [Once Upon a Time In Hollywood] and, as a fan, I wrote him a random note. Then he asked me to audition and I ended up getting the role of Squeaky. [...] It was a dream come true, there’s no other way to describe it. I probably would’ve played any role but the fact that it was such a juicy and challenging one made it even more exciting.”

On what director Quentin Tarantino is like to work with on set: “The first time I met [Quentin], he was so warm and friendly. I think you can tell how much he loves movies from afar – from his films and reading his interviews. Up close he’s like that, but tenfold. Also, his sets are no-phone zones; everyone checks in their phone beforehand. I think, for him, it’s such a privilege to make movies that the thought of looking at someone playing Candy Crush [while on set] is upsetting.”

On wanting to direct a film with her sister, actor Elle Fanning: “I do want to direct a film one day. Working with my sister is a big thing, too. I would love for Elle to write something and me to direct it. We’ve always talked about that because she’s definitely more of the writer than me.”
