Dakota Fanning is officially an adult now and she knows exactly what she wants. Dakota goes to NYU and she knows that she has a thriving career but she’s in college because she wants to be. Dakota has always been mature beyond her years and she proves it in her new feature in C magazine.
Dakota has a role in a new indie movie called Effie about a teenage bride. When Fanning was asked if she’s ever been in love before, she said: “Ahh, not really. No. I would have to say no … but Effie wasn’t really in love with her husband, either, which made [filming the movie of the same name] easier.”
That’s surprising, to me at least, but this chick is dedicated to her craft. Romance can wait.
On college: “I’m not going to school for a career. I’m going for my own interest, for myself. I already know what I want to do forever.”
On turning 18: “I feel like this new chapter as an adult is almost like starting over. That’s the interesting part about getting older in this business. I’m excited to present myself differently.”
