Dakota Fanning Reveals Her Studies on Women in Film

Dakota Fanning grabs some lunch to go before heading to the set of the Untitled Gerardo Naranjo Project on Friday (April 4) in Las Vegas.

The 20-year-old actress was joined on set that day by her co-star Sarah Steele, 25.

Dakota recently chatted with The Independent about what she has studied at NYU.

“Last semester I did a study about female directors and whether the movies they make breakdown the stereotypes of women, or do they even care about that at all,” Dakota said. “The one thing I’ve looked at about women in film is that it’s very rare to find a female character that is not in some way validated by a relationship with a man and so I’m kind of interested in that.”
