Casey Anthony working on movie that will highlight America's most hated mom's roller-coaster life
The 33-year-old Casey Anthony is set to release a movie called 'As I Was Told' made about her life from the time she becomes pregnant with her daughter Caylee, whose death shocked the world in 2008
Casey Anthony has revealed that she is currently working on a movie based on her life, that has been named 'As I Was Told'. We had earlier reported that the 33-year-old was branded the most-hated mom in America after she was arrested for the murder of her two-year-old daughter Caylee Anthony before a six-week trial that took place in Orlando, Florida, back in 2011.
In December 2008, investigators found Caylee's skeletal remains in woodlands close to the family residence. At the time, Anthony was accused of trying to get out of her parental responsibilities — neglecting her daughter and then ending her life. Throughout the probe, Casey changed her story multiple times. At one point, she shocked the nation after she accused her father George of sexually abusing her as a defense strategy.
In an interview with Daily Mail, Casey spoke at length about the upcoming movie project that is scheduled to be finished next year. "I could care less about what people think of me. I just feel my truth needs to be out of me. I need to close the book," she said. "As long as I get my side out so I can rest. I have spent years hearing other sides of what they believe to be true." According to Casey, her daughter may have drowned by accident. Nonetheless, she maintained that she had no part in her death and wasn't sure who hid her daughter's body in the woodlands where cops discovered her.
Speaking of the movie, Casey said: "It will make it clear that I had no part in Caylee's death as far as how she died." She continued: "Hopefully one day people will find it in their hearts to believe that I could never do this. It will show the tears and the turmoil that I truly went through and the anxiety and hardship after I was released when I actually had time to mourn. Regardless of what the media has depicted of me, I am not a monster. I just don't show my sadness. A thing that was taught to me as a young girl. I suffer on the inside. I learn to make peace and put on a smile to cover the sadness. Through it all, I never once thought of suicide. I am stronger than that... that is a coward's way out, and it is a sign of guilt to me."
The movie will also explain how she knew Caylee was dead for a month but was forced to cover up her knowledge, according to Casey. She claims she saw Caylee's lifeless body "wet as if she had drowned." The movie will also feature an unidentified man telling her to "live your life as normal, I will take care of it." During the trial, jurors were shocked to learn how Casey, while knowing her daughter was missing, partied hard and had a tattoo on her left shoulder blade reading "Bella Vita", Italian for "good life."
"Yes I drank and carried on like nothing happened," Casey justified. "The movie is called 'As I Was told' because I'd done what I was told to do. I had to put on a fake persona throughout those 31 days. A normal me used to go to bars. However, I didn't go to many bars, those pictures the media have are from my life before Cays was even born... and while she was still with us. How many pictures have they got of me really partying for 31 days? Wow, a hot body contest to promote a club, with several pictures of the same night. People can spin that around as they like I don't care. I always wanted to get that tattoo so I got it. I've even drawn that on pieces of paper before Caylee was even born."
When asked if she had planned to alert authorities about her daughter's death, Casey responded by saying: "I should have taken reign and done what I felt I should have done no matter who it hurt. My life was in other [people's] hands from the beginning to the end."
The news of a movie is sure to spark outrage among her detractors. However, Casey shared that she does not want to get paid for it. "I care nothing about making money from this," she said. "A real movie based on my version of true events, from when I was in my teens until my jail experience. It would be a low-grade movie. Nothing like Paramount."
Giving a sneak peek into the film, Casey revealed it begins with her discovering she is pregnant with Caylee. "The very beginning will have a girl looking at the pregnancy test strip," she explained. "Many flashbacks to parts of my life. There will be sex scenes. My character with different men, mainly sexual. It will show the partying drinking days leading up to my pregnancy. It is all confusing, then the day I conceive... moving forward with that." The movie will be reportedly shot in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina.
