Willow Smith was offered the part of “Annie” in the upcoming movie, arriving in theaters in December, however she turned down the role. Willow told V Magazine about her decision to turn down the part:

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. I just feel like I want to do it different than the world’s ready for. I’m enjoying just being independent and doing my own thing.

The role of Annie was instead given to actress Quvenzhané Wallis from “12 Years A Slave.”

We can’t wait to see what Willow does next!
