At the 26th Screen Actors Guild Awards, Brad Pitt made fun of Quentin Tarantino’s obsession with Dakota Fanning’s feet. Did she get cast as Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme thanks to her pretty toes?
In June 2018, Deadline reported that Dakota would play the infamous redhead, Squeaky Fromme. A central part of the Manson Family in the late ’60s, she attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.

“I knew Quentin was making this film [Once Upon a Time In Hollywood] and, as a fan, I wrote him a random note. Then he asked me to audition and I ended up getting the role of Squeaky. […] It was a dream come true, there’s no other way to describe it. I probably would’ve played any role but the fact that it was such a juicy and challenging one made it even more exciting,” Dakota told Net-A-Porter in July 2019.
“The first time I met [Quentin], he was so warm and friendly. I think you can tell how much he loves movies from afar – from his films and reading his interviews. Up close he’s like that, but tenfold. Also, his sets are no-phone zones; everyone checks in their phone beforehand. I think, for him, it’s such a privilege to make movies that the thought of looking at someone playing Candy Crush [while on set] is upsetting,” she added about working with the famous director.
