The Coraline Interviews Part 4 - Thirty-Nine Seconds with Dakota Fanning

Earlier in the day I had the opportunity to interview Dakota Fanning at the Heathman but I turned it down. I had no idea what I could ask a 14 year-old Hollywood prodigy.

Well, ok, I came up with several very stupid questions but none that I could actually use. One idea: "did Tom Cruise try to convert you to Scientology on the set of War of the Worlds?" Another potential query: "are you addicted to cocaine and painkillers yet or are you making sure to learn from the mistakes of Drew Barrymore?" One more: "did Wilbur in your remake of Charlotte's Web get turned into bacon or bratwurst after the cameras stopped rolling?"

Anyway....no, wait, one more: "have you ever hot boxed with Haley Joel Osment while talking smack about Stephen Spielberg?"

The other two online journalists I conducted interviews with also turned down a shot at interviewing Fanning for similar reasons. If I had to do it over again, I think I would have gone for it just to see how quickly her manager would have kicked me out. When Miss Fanning's handler brought her down to our end of the carpet, much like with Phil Knight, I had to come up with some questions fast that wouldn't get us kicked out of the Schnitz.




APB: I heard that you might be in the next Twilight movie. Is that still a rumor?

Fanning: It's not a rumor. I think it's definitely possible that I will be in it but it's too soon to say for sure but I really hope so.

APB: I've also heard that when you're doing voice work for an animated film like this that you have to step things up and be more energetic. That you have to "act more."

Fanning: When you only act with your voice it's definitely different from what I'm used to but it's still really fun.

She signed my copy of Coraline too. She's a class act, that Dakota Fanning. I really wish I had asked her about Wilbur though. I'm worried about him.

Coming up tomorrow: a one question interview with Coraline costar and still desperate housewife Teri Hatcher.
