Frock vs. frolic

Unlike a few young actresses you could probably name, Dakota Fanning would rather you thought of her as strait-laced:

“I don’t do enough adventurous things, because I’m like, ‘I might get hurt.’ But when we were doing Night Moves, Peter [Sarsgaard], Jesse [Eisenberg], and I went to these hot springs in Oregon, and I didn’t have a bathing suit. The woman who worked there said, ‘Oh, not a problem. Clothing’s optional after 8pm.’ And I was like, ‘Whoa. No, no, no! Not doing that. Here. With any of you!'”

And she didn’t, either.

    Applause for a rare correct spelling of “strait-laced!”

    She even let her eyebrows go completely – unfashionably – natural!
    Too suspiciously wholesome, if you ask me.

    At first I thought, “more than completely understandable, given the prevalence of cell phone cameras and such – one snap of an unclothed moment and she’d be all over the web.” Then I realized: these places probably have rules against cameras going in. And if everyone is in the same state, where would one conceal a camera?

    Still, wouldn’t be something I’d be comfortable with so very likely it was that she wasn’t comfortable with it, the whole “what if someone gets picture of me?” aside.
