Willow Smith Reveals Why She Dropped Out of Annie Remake

Young star says "intuition" made her opt out of father's film.

Published July 10, 2014

Willow Smith is a young lady who knows what she wants, even if it means disappointing her famous parents. The aspiring singer and actress reveals to Teen Vogue the real reason she dropped out of the upcoming Annie remake, produced by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.

"To be honest, something inside me was just, like, 'Don't,'" says Smith. "I'm very connected with my intuition." 

The celebrity scion, 13, left the project early last year, making way for Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis to take on the titular role (opposite Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks and Cameron Diaz as Agatha Hannigan). 

"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," Willow said to V magazine in January. 

Sounds like Willow is one teen who is wise beyond her years.
