Actor Willow, daughter of stars Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, has revealed she left the Jay-Z-produced musical remake of iconic screen musical Annie as she felt from inside she should not be a part of the movie.

The 13-year-old star said she is connected to her intuition and going by her inner feeling, opted out of the film, reported The Guardian.

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

The film was announced, with Smith, in early 2011, but her part was eventually given to Quvenzhane Wallis, the 10-year-old actor who became the youngest ever Best Actor Oscar nominee for her performance in Beasts of the Southern Wild, aged eight.

The film, about an orphan who is taken under the wing of a wealthy industrialist in a quest to find her parents, was first a stage musical and then a successful movie in 1982.

The remake co-stars Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz, and besides Jay Z, it is produced by Willow's parents, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith.
