I don't think this is really a valid point against Dakota. What person can you name that is literally innocent on the outside and evil on the inside (as you put it)? Not to mention the fact that this person also needs to be an actress and the right age to play Jane. Yes Dakota is innocent inside and out (thank God... she's only 15!), but since she is an established actress I don't think she'll have a hard time portraying the "evil" part. After all, that's what acting is all about - playing a part, not actually BEING that character in your everyday life.I.WANT.TO.BE.BELLA wrote:6: She is not pretty enough to play a vampire who is innocent on the outside and evil on the inside. Dakota is just innocent on inside and out so how can she portray Jane?
I'm curious, do you also have this same problem when watching movies with any well-established actor/actress? Like are you ever just sitting there watching Saving Private Ryan but then suddenly get all confused and think you're watching Forrest Gump because they both star Tom Hanks? That's just weird to me. And I'm being sarcastic here, as I'm sure you were when you first wrote that comment. Do you see how ridiculous it sounds?I.WANT.TO.BE.BELLA wrote:7: She is in SOOOOOO many movies i will get mixed up when i see her and wonder what movie i am watching.
Like many actors before her, Dakota is taking on a new role that she's never done before. I think confusion on which movie you're watching should be at a minimum. Plus, the presence of vampires and werewolves should help clarify things so you don't mistake New Moon for like I Am Sam or something.
I'm not trying to be harsh here, I just think people are being way too critical about this. It's like the uproar that happened when Rob was cast as Edward and now people absolutely love him, for the most part. Give the girl more credit, she deserves the benefit of the doubt. I don't think Dakota's previous success should be held against her. And I think she'll be great as Jane.
