New Lily sign now

We, the fans of the novel The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, do not wish to have the character of Lily portrayed by Dakota Fanning, for known reasons as stated below: Though a talented actress we know that millions of fans will be disappointed and also it is owed to us that we may see the simple basic description that the author so tediously worked to come alive rather than sacrificed to the Hollywood ideals. We ask that you cast another actress in this role.

    I love this book and I really don't see how you can cast Dakota when she is utterly wrong for the role!

    i won't pay any money to this movie if she's in it! Neither will my friends, get someone new, you'll do better in the box office if someone else is in it, don't feel bad for her, she's been in enough! public is done with her!

    I think Hailey Anne Nelson is a great actress and way better for this role. If you could just change it to her or an unknown this film would not be a failure.

    It is the public opinion that we do NOT want Dakota in this role. Think of the fans, and you'll be more successful. Go with an unknown or fairly unknown like Hailey Anne Nelson or Hallie Kate Eisneburg...really any any anyone else.

    We need a Lily that looks 14 and looks natural with black hair and talent. I find that Hailey Anne Nelson has all three. You should check her out.
  • 18 September 200929. Sal Chambers
    she sucks
  • 06 June 200928. Allison F
    It's not that she's not an ok actor, she's over used and entirely wrong for the role. Plus she's booked for this year and we shouldn't wait for her when she isn't right for the role.

    Dakota will ruin this film and greatly decrease the fanbase of anything to do with this novel. Don't do it.
  • 14 October 200724. Riley D
    Hailey Anne Nelson is Lily, not Dakota. Do NOT make this mistake.!!!
