In Grazia, once asked which smell she associates with happiness, Dakota says coffee.
"We care for each other. Alessandro and I share the same values, we love the same things and both appreciate honesty and sincerity in people. It feels like Alessandro is from a whole other time, he’s a genius."
"I’ve always loved anything that had a vintage vibe. I’ve been collecting various pieces from when I was still a kid. Now I’m very lucky because I can wear magnificent clothes. I love to wear pieces that make me feel sexy. You will never see me on a Red Carpet in one of those dresses you see nowadays in which celebrities are practically half-naked."
"I think clothes are fundamental while building a character. A few times, I brought my own clothes on set to feel more at ease in the role and same goes for the hair. Sometimes I’m blonde but I am now a brunette, I might change color again someday, who knows."
"When I was a kid, I used to spend my time out in the open, surrounded by horses. Now I have a dog, but I still feel very close to nature."
"My grandma (Tippi) is the most glamorous woman I’ve ever met. She is so gorgeous and smart, a real classy woman."
"There are moments in which I feel very vulnerable, where the lack of privacy that my works involves feels unbearable, a real invasion. There are moments in which I realize it’s all part of the game, it happens, I gotta deal with it. I'm in the middle, I know how fame works. I’ve felt this invasion of privacy twice in my life; first with my parents and now with me. But when I was a kid and my parents were at the top of their careers, phones weren’t used to take pictures and there was no social media."
"I love Luca, I wanna marry him! I know he's in love w/ Tilda Swinton, but I love her too. I know it could be a messy but well, I love Luca."
"It’s true (that she has said she loves Italian men). Maybe it’s because I have an European mentality or I was Italian in a past life. 'But yeah, I love both of them (Luca & Alessandro) and I have a similar friendship with the both of them."
On Suspiria: "We shot in Varese, and it was an incredible experience. Very tiring and intense, but also exciting. I play a ballerina, Susan Bannion, Suzy for her friends. Before we started shooting, I had to train and study ballet and on set I was always with a choreographer. Working on the dancing part was a work on its own, completely different yet complementary to the acting one. My body felt it, though. I lost a lot of weight, I was tired and sore, but there I knew the suffering & dignity dancers possess."
