The 17-year-old actress dished to JJJ at Disney’s Friends For Change shoot yesterday afternoon that she actually auditioned for the part that ultimately went to Kristen Stewart.
Jennifer shared, “I’ve always loved Joan Jett and when I heard Kristen Stewart got the part, I was like, ‘Totally get that.’ She did a phenomenal job. I watched a lot of Joan’s YouTube videos to get in the mindset of the part. She’s such a great role model for young girls that I didn’t want to screw anything up. I’m so happy Kristen got that part.”
When we asked if she would recast the movie, Jenn told us, “I wouldn’t recast. It was flawless. Everyone — Dakota Fanning and Kristen, did a fantastic job. There isn’t anyone who I’d recast.”
