Well, this is a relief. After enduring many unspeakable things to her characters in past movies, Dakota Fanning is suddenly shy. Maybe it’s because she turned 18 finally last February. In any case, for Naomi Foner’s film, “Very Good Girls,” Fanning will not be naked–at least at the beach. A casting call has gone out for body doubles for her and for Elizabeth Olsen. The movie is about two girls who want to lose their virginity to the same guy. Foner, mother of Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal, wrote the great Sidney Lumet movie “Running on Empty” years ago. Fanning almost left the indie “Very Good Girls” before financing came together. Anton Yelchin did, and was replaced by 30 year Boyd Holbrook.
Fanning, by the way, before she turned 18, was raped in “Hounddog,” had lesbian sex in “The Runaways,” and recently did provocative commercial in the U.K. Through it all she’s remained incredibly normal and wonderfully poised.
Here’s the casting call. The “I” isn’t Foner but the casting director, I think:
There is nudity in this project. I’m looking for NAKED body doubles for Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen for the film, ‘Very Good Girls’. Beach scene MONDAY, JULY 16 IN BROOKLYN, NY. We will see bare back all the way down, top and bottom. We’ll do some form of modesty clothes for the front. Submits must have great bodies and not be too sun tanned.
