Willow Smith has a darn good reason for why she passed on the remake of ‘Annie’ … She wanted to rest.
Smith, who at one point was considered to star as the Little Orphan, tells V Magazine why she turned down the role. “I just wanted to chill, and be at home, and decompress, and just find out what I wanna do and where I stand on this planet, with the little tiny place we have,” Smith said.
In the excerpts from her interview, exclusively obtained by E! News, the young star also revealed that she wants “to do it different than the world’s ready for.” “I’m enjoying just being independent and doing my own thing,” the 13-year-old explained.
The seventh grader is definitely doing her own thing and it appears as though music is at the top of her list. On Monday, Willow and her older brother Jaden released a new track called, 5. In the song, Willow sings about what else … Love.
And while Willow decompresses and puts out new music, Oscar nominee, Quvenzhane Wallis has been hard at work filming for her role as Little Orphan Annie. The 10-year-old has been filming in New York alongside her co-star, Jamie Foxx who took on the role of Daddy Warbucks.
