Dakota Fanning is a Navy Nymph

Dakota Fanning is a Navy Nymph

Dakota Fanning is age-appropriately cute in a sleek satin jumpsuit as she tapes a segment for the The Late Show with David Letterman at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City on Monday (February 2).

The adorable 14-year-old, who finished off her look with BCBGirls platforms, recently chatted about her real and rumored upcoming roles in Coraline and the Twilight series with Parade magazine.

On how she’s like and unlike Coraline: I collect dolls and I’ve been doing it my whole life. I just love them. Coraline doesn’t collect girly things. I think she’s a bit more tomboyish than I am. When I was a kid I used to imagine those dolls were my children and I’d act out little stories with them. I think that’s when I realized that maybe I could be an actor.

On rumors that she’ll appear in the next Twilight movie: It’s definitely being discussed but it’s not set in stone. It would be really cool to be a part of Twilight if it works out. I’m a big fan. I saw the first movie but I haven’t read all of the books yet, I’m working on it. I would be a vampire, which could really prove that I can be sweet, little Dakota Fanning and then I can be something different on the screen.

You can catch Dakota Fanning’s Letterman appearance on Friday, February 6.

    Her outfit is adorable. I’m used to seeing celebs in their 30′s trying to pull off that look and it doesn’t work but it actually works for a cute teenager. She’s going to be gorgeous when she grows up.

    Where’d you get the “nymph” reference from?

    On another note she’s growing into a decent actress. But I’ll probably always love her as Sean Penn’s daughter from I Am Sam.

    She looks her age and like the sister of Amanda Seyfield from MAMMA MIA. She doesn’t look as distasteful and ****** as Miley Cyrus and Ali Lohan A.K.A Sh^t Spears and Lindsay Hohan 2.0.

    Dakota Fanning is growing up nicely before our eyes! She is very precocious and a talented actress indeed. I gotta be honest, she looks cute in her getup, to the point where I’m beginning to harbor some lascivious sentiments about her.

    sillyme Says:

    She’s always been my favorite of the child actresses. I hope she’ll continue to stay sweet and focused…and not turn into a train wreck, like LIndsay (who used to be one of my fav child actresses).

    Dakota reminds me of young Laura Linney an awful lot.

    Rayt, you are an idiot (ref 02/03/2009 at 2:37 pm). Nymph simply means ‘beautiful young lady’. You’re probably thinking of ‘nympho’ (a contraction of ‘nymphomaniac’), which is entirely different.

    Maybe check what you claim to know before dishing out advice and corrections, yeah?

    The reason why Dakota Fanning is as grounded and classy as she is is because her parents were smart and KEPT HER THE F–K AWAY FROM DISNEY!!!!Seriously,any parents that have children getting into acting,or singing,keep your children away from Disney,with their brainwashing Mickey Mouse club bs,and they’ll grow up just fine.
