Dakota Fanning is All Grown Up

All grown up!

Actress Dakota Fanning arrives at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s annual summer luncheon held at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Wednesday in Beverly Hills.

The Charlotte’s Web actress is now 14 and enterting 10th grade! Dakota broke through at the age of 7 with her performance in I Am Sam. She also had an impressive performance in War of the Worlds where director Steven Spielberg praised her ability to show “how she would really react in a real situation.”

Dakota recently recalled receiving the award for Best Young Actor/Actress from the Broadcast Film Critics Association and needed Orlando Bloom to lift her up to the mic! Ms. Fanning told Pop Tarts, “I met him again later on the set of War of the Worlds and we talked and had a laugh about it. It was funny, but I’m actually a bit embarrassed thinking about it now.”

10+ pictures inside of Dakota Fanning all grown up…

    She’s grown up but definitely still looks 12 to me.
    She’s cute though, she’ll grow into her looks once she hits puberty :)

    14 is entering 9th grade, but maybe she’s homeschooled or something, because they’re usually ahead. Or maybe she’s young for her grade…? She looks young for 14, though.

    That video of Orlando holding her up for her looooong acceptance speech is what sealed the deal for my Orlando affection. It is still one of the cutest things that I have ever seen.

    She may be 14 now but turning 15 before the end of the year. That would make her in Grade 10. I also agree she has turned into a beautiful young woman

    joss Says:

    14 for 10th grade should be correct, i was 14 when i was in 10th grade…and i agree with #5, a real 14 year old should look like dakota, not ali lohan…
