In a new interview, Anna Nicole Smith’s 13-year-old daughter Dannielynn sits down with father, Larry Birkhead, to talk about her love of acting. Her father boasts that the teenager is a natural on the stage. “I got an email from her teacher [that] said, ‘Dannielynn gave one of the most believable performances of the whole entire school that was in the play,’ ” her dad reveals.
“If she wants to do something like that when she’s older, I’ll have my own opinion about it,” Birkhead continues on.
Anna Nicole Smiths’ daughter, Dannielynn, talks about acting
Dannielynn is open about her love for acting. She says it’s “really cool” to “act as a character and not yourself.” She also says that “It’s like portraying a new person. It’s fun.”
On the flipside, Birkhead does everything he can to not put his daughter in the face of Hollywood limelight. During a 20/20 interview in 2017, he said, “I’ve had companies call me since [Dannielynn appeared in a Guess campaign] and ask for her to model, and that answer’s no. She doesn’t show any interest in it. She wants to be a kid.”

Birkhead also reveals that Dannielynn is just not interested in all that hype. She enjoys typical teenage girl things such as participating in Girl Scouts, going on Snapchat, eating French fries, and taking care of her pets.
He continues, “She loves school. She loves her friends. I just hope that she dreams big and accomplishes a lot,” he says. He’s protective of his daughter because knows that everything about Anna Nicole Smith is readily available on the Internet. Dannielynn will often cling to her girlfriend’s moms and say things like, ‘Do you want to adopt me? Would you be my honorary mother?’ It must be hard to grow up without a motherly figure.
Larry Birkhead tries to protect his daughter at all costs
With that being said, Birkhead has revealed that he’s placed a block on his daughter’s computer so she doesn’t have to see all of this talk about her mother. “We go to the store and she sees magazine covers and stuff and we sit down and I have a talk with her and say, ‘You know, you’re gonna see these things that come out about your mom and not everything that you’re gonna see is true.’‘
It’s still great to see Birkhead being so protective over his daughter. It looks like she’s now trying to break out into her own world and pursue her own passions. We hope the best for her!
