Here is what Dakota had to say in the Q & A  Session for the film ‘Night Moves’. Credit for the question and answer with Dakota goes to Yahoo! Movies.

Q: Reichardt sets Night Moves in the alternative culture of the Pacific Northwest. Your character, Dena, works in a new age health spa and Eisenberg’s sleeps in a yurt. Was it a relief to play a character who didn’t have to spend hours in hair and make-up?

A:With the character I was playing, my hair ended up getting matted in the back. I had this weird little dreadlock that I was like, “Ack! There’s nothing I can do about it.” Kelly (Reichardt) was like “I love it.” So I definitely feel like I learned about the crunchy side of life, but that isn’t who I usually am.” (Laughs)

Q: (Not really a question) – That unpolished look feels like it belongs in a Reichardt movie. She’s known for her naturalistic style in movies like Wendy and Lucy.

A: “She really lets the actors be. I feel like making this film was as close to how people are in real life than any movie I’ve ever made. Kelly isn’t afraid of the silences, and if somebody stumbles over a word, that’s okay because that happens in real life. Sometimes filmmakers want everything to be perfect and glossed over and everybody looks like they wake up with lip balm on.”

Q: What was your most emotional moment while filming?

A:Doing the action in the boat (when we’re about to blow up the dam) was surprisingly emotional. It was towards the very beginning of the shoot and it was really cold. It was three in the morning and we were doing all this really intense stuff and for the three main characters, that’s what they’ve been building up to. Seeing that dam, and how big it is, and (how) they’re on this tiny boat going up to do this act of sabotage — it is a weird spiritual experience for them.”

Q: As an individual, what was your most radical activity?

A:I’m a strict rule follower. (Laughs) People tease me all the time because I’m afraid of getting in trouble for all sorts of things. At airports, I get terrified. I do everything that they say.”

Q: Has your rule-following tendencies helped you transition from child to adult star?

A:I’m sure it has helped me that my natural instinct is to try and do the right thing. I have a really great life that I love and I don’t want to do anything that changes it. [Laughs] I’m more of a risk taker in my work. I’m not afraid of a challenge when it comes to playing a character.”

Q: You attend New York University, just a few blocks from where this interview is taking place, and you’ve been studying women in film and Hollywood’s portrayal of women. Did that draw you to working with a female director?

A:For me, it’s more about wanting there to be more female directors. There’s no shortage of women who want to make films. There are so many male directors and so many male-driven films and there are significantly fewer female-driven films and female directors — and that’s not because they don’t exist.”

Dakota Fanning wears a long black coat over her dress while attending the Proenza Schouler fashion show held during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014 on Wednesday (February 12) in New York City.

The 19-year-old actress went for a much more daring look the day before while sitting in the front row at Rodarte‘s fashion show, showing her cleavage in a revealing dress.

Whoa there!
Dakota Fanning flashed some serious cleavage during the Rodarte spring 2014 show at New York Fashion Week.

The 19-year-old donned a low-cut, nude-colored dress to the presentation—complete with a knit cardigan and beaded necklace.

The sexy ensemble is a major departure for the young actress.

Fanning usually sticks to conservative (yet fashion-forward) attire, especially during the frigid temperatures in the Big Apple. But once everyone got an eyeful of Fanning’s ample décolletage, the attention went straight downward…to her shoes.

The adorable blonde rocked a pair of black-and-white mismatched high heels for the big event.

Gerardo Naranjo’s untitled English-language debut, starring Dakota Fanning, has been fully financed and starts production in late March in Nevada.
“Harry Potter” actor Frank Dillane, Jeremy Allen White (“Shameless”) and “X-Men: First Class” thesps Zoe Kravitz and Caleb Landry Jones are also starring in the film, with Naranjo (“Miss Bala”) directing from his own script. Hunter Gray and Alex Orlovsky of Verisimilitude and Chris Ramirez of Lola Pictures will produce.

Fanning will portray a roadie on a journey of self-discovery while on tour with a punk band in the 1980s.

Dakota was last seen in the final “Twilight” film. She recently wrapped “Effie Gray,” “Every Secret Thing” and “Franny.”

Side Note: The film is a co-production of Verisimilitude and Lola Pictures, which is also financing. CAA arranged the financing, and Preferred Content negotiated the deal on behalf of the financiers. Domestic distribution rights will be represented by CAA and Preferred Content.
