ROME (AP) — Actress Dakota Fanning has told reporters that although she hasn't experienced the sort of sexual assault that has turned Hollywood on its head, it's "important to talk about these issues, for women to stand up for themselves."

Fanning, 23, spoke Tuesday at the Rome Film Festival, where she was presenting the film "Please Stand By." She plays a young autistic woman obsessed with the Star Trek series, who runs away from her home in San Francisco to get to Los Angeles to submit her manuscript for a Star Trek script writing contest.

Fanning said she shares her character's determination in achieving her goal, adding: "you have to fight for what you believe in and stay true to what you are."
