Dakota Fanning Decks The Nails

Dakota Fanning gets her nails done on Christmas Eve with her sister Elle and mom Joy in Studio City on Thursday (December 24).

The 15-year-old actress recently remembered her costar for Uptown Girls, Brittany Murphy, who passed away on Sunday.

“I got to know Brittany when we made the film Uptown Girls,” Dakota told E!. “We became great friends despite the fact we were many years apart in age. Brittany had such a warm child-like spirit that drew people to her. With her goes a piece of my heart and I will miss her terribly. I know how strong Brittany‘s love was for her family and my heart goes out to all of them, especially her mother Sharon. I love you Brittany.”

That was such a sweet thing to say. I still cannot believe Brittany has passed. It makes me so sad. I adored her. It sounds like she was really close with her mother. It’s so heartbreaking.

That’s such a nature and thoughtful thing to say.

That should have been Mature.

Little sister is taller than Dakota now.

That’s not their agent, their mother, grandmother, or their father or uncles best friends sister in law, its their fathers first cousin

Sweet Jesus I hope that this girl doesn’t turn out like Lindsay Lohan. Keep your head in your books and stay away from the cocaine..

The woman in the picture with Dakota and Elle was Cindy Osbrink. She (or her in-house publicist Erica Stimak) was almost certainly the author of Dakota’s statement about Brittany Murphy… as with all of the Fannings’ public announcements. She watches Dakota- in particular- like a hawk. That “warm child-like” remark has Cindy’s fingerprints all over it. This is meant to (once again) re-enforce the notion of Dakota’s supernatural “maturity” and, at the same time, put a careful distance between her and Brittany by its blandness. In fact, Brittany may have been the one true friend that Dakota ever had in Hollywood… who didn’t use her for their own ends. That includes the Fanning parents and- certainly- Osbrink herself.

Cindy doesn’t like competition in this arena. Besides, she’s going to need to maintain that image of Dakota as the “wise child” once again, as she did after the “Hounddog” debacle. When the likewise pornographic “The Runaways” comes out, this will again become the primary shield against bad press and possible litigation. The Kristen Stewart collaboration (which gained Dakota back a career after “Hounddog” put it in virtual limbo) has a downside insomuch as Dakota must now do the “dirty work” for Kristen to bolster HER career into adulthood. “The Runaways” was the price for this.

Therefore, Cindy’s close supervision and dominance of Dakota continues. She’s got too much invested in that kid to ever let her out from under her thumb. If Dakota had spoken for herself on this occasion (assuming she has enough of her own personality left) she might have told something a little more substantial about Brittany Murphy. With the possible exception of her sister, only the late Miss Murphy ever showed her friendship and compassion that didn’t have a dollar sign attached. Dakota remains the most exploited child star in Hollywood history.
