The set of Very Good Girls parked themselves in Brighton Beach – Brooklyn, yesterday to film scenes with Dakota Fanning and her co-star Elizabeth Olsen. And before you ask – NO, Demi Moore was not on set! Good times with youngsters, you might chirp. And some folks would immediately heed the want to chime in. But how wrong you all would be. Well, it was a good time but not due to the two on hand, we make our own fun. In truth the two darlings were less than receptive to the hoard of photogs trawling the exterior set while they repeatedly filmed a scene on a local street corner.
‘Who can blame them,’ you might want to throw in at this point. As many do right before they run up to the celeb – camera phone in hand – requesting a photo with the available star… But that’s a different posting altogether.
Fanning is someone we truly have a soft spot for having watched her – both on screen and on red carpets for many a year – go from an awkward child star to a tall coming of age young one. Talent intact.
But this preexisting history has a tendency of letting the mind play tricks on reality. (We never said we were grounded in it, dammit!) It’s like you think that by having watched said youngster grow before your eyes, they have somehow retained the sweet child qualities they once had or will somehow know how much you have admired their accomplishments. A bit unbalanced, for sure! You don’t rightly know them from Adam, but still your mind persists on playing that trick on you.
And so when the party at hand goes and gets all testy and snarly, you can’t help the reflex response of going ‘wow!’
But to clarify on who we attempt to refer to with this mental fart we mean Dakota Fanning, for certain. Cuz we don’t know two cents worth of anything Elizabeth Olsen did before her famous family name procured her an agent and tabloid attention. And if you are having trouble identifying who her counter parts are just think Troll looking twin sisters and you will have identified the culprits. And Liz… Thank you for flipping us the bird! You are all class act you are. Our agency appreciates the gesture.
