Dakota Fanning Sex Scenes Raise Ire

HOLLYWOOD -- Consider this your early-warning Sundance Film Festival controversy alert: Cute little Dakota Fanning plays a precocious child-sex-abuse and rape victim in Full Moon Films' upcoming "Hounddog."

The issue: Fanning, who turns 13 next month, is reportedly depicted in the film nude or scantily clad during compromising scenes, and her face is shown in close-up during a rape scene.

Early reports of the film's contents have stirred a minor Internet storm over whether Fanning's mother, Joy, and the girl's agent, Cindy Osbrink, are exploiting the girl in hopes of an Oscar nomination. A spokesman for Osbrink and the filmmakers did not return a message seeking comment.

Child actors being depicted in sexual roles is not new. Jena Malone portrayed a rape victim in "Bastard Out of Carolina" (1996), Brooke Shields' character's virginity was auctioned in Louis Malle's "Pretty Baby" (1978), and Jodie Foster famously played a prostitute in Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver" (1976). All were younger than 15 at the time.

Such roles can vault a young actress from the category of "adorable" into being taken seriously as an artist, and Osbrink was quoted this summer as holding out hopes for an Oscar nomination -- despite the subject matter, which, the New York Daily News reported, scared off some investors.

Fanning is an experienced actress with more than 30 roles, including in the slasher film "Hide and Seek" and the remake of "War of the Worlds" (both 2005), and as Fern in "Charlotte's Web" (2006).

Among the outraged is Ted Baehr of the Christian Film & Television Commission. Baehr, whose advocacy group runs the movie.org Web site, which ranks films based on Christian themes and family appeal, said that he hadn't seen the film but that he was calling on movie distributors to reject the film and report the filmmakers to legal authorities. The movie has its first Sundance screening Jan. 22.

"It's pedophilia," Baehr said earlier this week. "There should be a sense of outrage about it."

It's an interesting post. From the one side, an actor has to research a role before playing the part and it's a cause of concern because of the subject matter and the age. It raises the question of whether the child actor will come across themes that aren't appropriate for the age or are too extreme, things they don't have to expose themselves to just so a film studio can make money. I don't think Dakota needs the money, she's been in a wide array of films, and yeah, makes me wonder about her parents and what was going on in their minds at the time because I'd never permit it for my child (who's a similar age), and I think many parents wouldn't permit it, then again we're talking 'La La Land' where many end up La-La, where it's a world of big bucks, and many 'star' parents don't stop to consider the repercussions of their actions. Danny Bonaduce and McCauley Culkin are two I can think of automatically, who were f#$%cked up at some point. Drew Barrymore was exposed to so much too soon, and is it all worth it?
