Plugging away at her new project, Dakota Fanning was spotted filming scenes for “Effie” in Venice, Italy today (December 1).
The “I Am Sam” babe looked wide-eyed as she shot on location outdoors, donning a beautiful blue printed dress with a topcoat and gloves.
Dakota is taking a break from her college life in New York City, where she has her own apartment that’s in need of some furniture.
She recently told press, “About the only thing I don’t have is a couch! That’s the hardest thing about furnishing the apartment. I’m trying out a couch and thinking, Is this where I want to watch my shows? Am I comfortable enough here? The couch has been a bit of an ordeal!”
As for her extensive acting portfolio, Dakota explained that she’s had to stretch herself beyond what she thought she could do.
“I’ve had to learn so many different things for movies. When I played a competitive swimmer in Man on Fire, [director] Tony Scott wanted me to do all the swimming myself. I had to race against girls who were competitive swimmers—and he wanted me to actually win the race. There would be some takes where I didn’t win, and we had to do it again. I willed myself to win.”
