Dakota Fanning is soon turning 21, but says she prefers knitting to partying.

“Pretty much every director I’ve ever worked for I’ve knit a scarf for,” the “Twilight” star said.

Fanning, whose birthday is in February, has no plans to hit the clubs.
She said,

“I have no idea what to do. It’s been such a talked-about thing for so long, like, what are you gonna do for your birthday, that I think by the time it rolls around I’m just going to stay home with five friends and call it a day.”

Dakota Fanning is at war with her black Balenciaga buckle-strap ankle boots. “Oh God,” she says, pointing to the Band-Aids covering the telltale signs of abuse. “They killed my feet yesterday. With tights or socks they’re fine, but last night it was so warm that I took my tights off. Living in New York City, you have to wear comfortable shoes—which I’m really terrible at—or you’re not going to survive.” Still, her solution (wearing adhesive strips designed to resemble slabs of bacon) almost makes it worth it. It’s a quirky style statement, perfectly appropriate for a 20-year-old New York University student (which she is), if not necessarily an acclaimed Hollywood actress who could likely commission Alexander Wang himself to make custom bandages for her if she had the inclination.

Fanning has always—well, not from birth, but close—been embraced by the fashion in-crowd. Marc Jacobs cast her in his spring 2007 ad campaign when she was 12, looking like the luckiest little girl ever to raid her mother’s closet. (She was so tiny he had the whole collection custom-sized for her; she still has it today.) She attended her first fashion show (Miu Miu) at age 15 and maintains solid friendships with not only Jacobs (she also appeared in his Oh, Lola! fragrance ads in 2011) but also Laura and Kate Mulleavy, the sisters behind Rodarte. “Everybody would want to hang out with them,” says Fanning. “They’re so down-to-earth. They’re geniuses, really; I’m always fascinated by their inspirations.”

Given her insider’s vantage point, it’s not a surprise that Fanning gets fashion. But she’s not over-the-top obsessive about it. Right now, ensconced in a window seat at Café Cluny, a cozy spot in the West Village, she’s dressed well but simply: worn-in AG jeans, shiny Stubbs & Wootten black flats and a delicate white button-down shirt from the (inventively titled) brand Shirt by Shirt. Her bag is a quilted maroon Chanel mini, and the slightest coating of mascara is detectable on her doll-like blue eyes. Fanning may be able to rock a one-shouldered, red Roland Mouret jumpsuit, as she did for her Night Moves premiere just two evenings earlier, and know the ins and outs of shopping in London (“Selfridges and Liberty of London are great because everything is right there and it’s easy!”), but it’s believable when she says her everyday style is no-fuss classic. She stocks up on the items she loves—Acne jeans, Current/Elliott T-shirts—partly for convenience (“If you have a pair of jeans you love, why change them?” she wonders) and partly because she claims to be a terrible shopper. “The pressure of trying things on in the store freaks me out,” she admits. “I usually come back with things that don’t fit.” Her most treasured piece of clothing isn’t a designer piece but a T-shirt she got from the hospital gift shop the day her sister Elle was born. “It’s pink with big blue letters and says ‘I’m the Big Sister.’ I was so small and it was so big that it fit me forever. Now it would be like a crop top on me,” she says with a laugh, “which might be in fashion.”   Read the rest of this entry »

If you needed further proof that Dakota Fanning is all grown up, all you have to do is see her new movie Very Good Girls. The 20-year-old actress stars alongside Elizabeth Olsen and Boyd Holbrook in the coming-of-age film about two teenagers who make a pact to lose their virginity before leaving for college. We were lucky enough to see Very Good Girls a little bit early, and while we LOVED it, we had some pretty pressing questions after the movie ended. E.g.: How the heck did she psyche herself up enough to run naked on the beach?! And what better way to get answers to those questions than to have a Q&A with Dakota herself! Be sure to catch VGG when it hits select theaters tomorrow and click through the gallery below to see what Dakota had to say about her nude scene that isn’t what you think, working with her BFF ‘Lizzy’ and tons more!

On screen, Lily and Gerry are super close. What did you and Elizabeth do off screen to make that relationship seem as realistic as possible?

“Lizzy and I went to the same high school and we have a lot of mutual friends, so we knew each other before making the movie. We were already friends so it was very fun to do a movie about being good friends with someone and actually being good friends with them. We were able to fall into that relationship pretty easily.”

Elizabeth and Boyd are engaged, so was it awkward to film romantic scenes with him?

“Well they didn’t know each other [before we filmed]! We were just making the movie and were having a really good time. We were enjoying making the film.”

What was your initial reaction when you first the script and found out you were going to have a nude scene?

“Well we did it but we had our clothes on and then they were Photoshopped off, so it was fine! I was excited to do it. This movie is about being free and finding your independence and moving on to new chapters.”

Oh! Do you think you’d ever do an actual nude scene? Read the rest of this entry »

Dakota Fanning is coming to San Francisco. The War of the Worlds actress is scheduled to attend the Mill Valley Film Festival (MVFF) which opens October 3rd.

With her new film Effie Gray the one-time child star is out to once again prove that she has what it takes to command the big screen.

The role, as a Victorian child-bride marks the first time the Georgia native will play lead and attempt to carry a film as an adult.

Shot in the British Isles, the Effie Gray is receiving strong notices. Dakota’s performance has been called “mesmerizing” – a word which we like, we just hope it means in a good way.

If you want to see the star, you better grab tickets soon. There’s only on screening. So mark your calendar for Saturday, October 12 at 6:30pm. That’s when Fanning is scheduled to arrive at the Christopher B. Smith Film Center in San Rafael, located a hop and a skip north of San Francisco.[…]

It’s been nearly a year since the news broke that Dakota Fanning had joined the cast of  “Girl’s Night Out”, Michael Hoffman’s film based on the true story of how the future Queen of Britain, Princess Elizabeth, and her sister Princess Margaret celebrated VE Day in 1945. Alexandra Roach joined the cast back in November, but as with all films long in gestation, it looks like Fanning has dropped out of the project – allowing British actress Juno Templeto jump into the role.

When the film was first announced back in February 2011, the plot details weren’t too specific, stating ” When [Princess Margaret] and her sister Elizabeth are allowed out from Buckingham Palace for one night to join in the celebrations, the night encompasses thrills, romance and danger.” However Britain’s Daily Mail now have further information, “Elizabeth has an innocent romance (this bit is totally fictional, folks!) with a recently returned soldier, who doesn’t realise he’s hanging out with a princess. The pair even go dancing at the Ritz.”

Temple was one of our Faces to Watch in 2012, and this year alone will see her in dark comedy “The Brass Teapot” opposite Michael Angarano, and filming thriller “Magic Magic” opposite Michael Cera. This is a great coup for the actress however, who will get her first big breakout in perhaps the most anticipated film of the year, Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises”.

Filming on “Girls’ Night Out” is set to start this Fall on location in London.

If you were planning an indie film and were looking for two actresses considered at the top of their game in that field, you’d be hard pressed to beat casting Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen. Director Naomi Foner had the same thought, and has finally locked them in alongside Anton Yelchin for Very Good Girls.

Though you wouldn’t think either woman likely to struggle getting dates, Girls will find Olsen and Fanning as two lifelong best friends planning to spend their summer after graduating high school finally losing their virginity. Like so many teens before them, they see it as a vital rite of passage into adulthood. But there’s a hitch: they both fall for the same boy (Yelchin), and soon things become very complicated…

Foner has been trying to get the film made for a while now, and with her cast in place can aim to start shooting this June in New York. “The film deals with female sexuality and friendship in a way we haven’t seen before,” she tells Deadline. “These girls will be stunning young women in a couple of years, but they’ve struggled through high school with only each other. Most of us have been there. This is the summer where they finally get to touch real life.”

Olsen is currently enjoying more Sundance acclaim in Josh Radnor’s Liberal Arts and has Martha Marcy May Marlene about to hit UK cinemas, and Fanning will crop up at the end of the year as psycho vamp Jane in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Dakota Fanning has been in the film industry since she was 6 years old, but the young actress will take on her first adult role in the upcoming period drama, “Effie.”
The film, which is slated for release in June 2012, follows the disastrous marriage between 19th-century art critic John Ruskin and his young bride Effie Gray. The tumultuous union ended after Effie fell madly in love with young artist John Everett Millais.

“It’s the ultimate bad marriage,” Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson, who wrote the screenplay, told the Associated Press. “It happens to be a costume drama, but you could be doing a story with this kind of complexity and oddness in any period.”

Ruskin married Gray in 1848, when he was 29 and she was 19 and according to historians, on their wedding night, something about his bride horrified Ruskin and the union was not consummated. Ruskin claimed it was her personality, but Gray wrote that her husband “had imagined women were quite different to what he saw I was.”

“We’re talking about a girl who is objectified, and then disappoints a man by being real,” director Richard Laxton said. “If that isn’t relevant, I don’t know what is.”

At the time, divorce was illegal and so Gray suffered through the marriage until she fell in love with Millais, who was part of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood – a group of painters whose boldness shocked the Victorian art world. Read the rest of this entry »

Dakota Fanning has a career people twice her age dream of, and her friend and costar Kristen Stewart has taken notice. The girls have starred in both the Twilight series and the rock biopic The Runaways, and KStew, 21, chatted about Dakota in the February issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.

“We had a few scenes that were crazy intimidating, and maybe once or twice, [Dakota] was like ‘Okay, I have a butterfly in my stomach,’” Kristen said of shooting Runways with her costar. “Meanwhile, I’m hyperventilating! Sometimes I give her shit for being so on the ball.”

As for how Dakota has shot up to superstardom before the age of 20, the actress admitted to Cosmo,

“Since I was young, I’ve always known who I was. I never really had to go through finding who I am. I’ve always felt really secure.”

It must run in the family as the actress’ younger sister Elle Fanning is also making a name for herself in Hollywood.
