Dakota Fanning Covers 'Marie Claire' August 2010

Dakota Fanning Covers 'Marie Claire' August 2010

Dakota Fanning looks grown up and glamorous on the cover of Marie Claire‘s August 2010 issue, on newsstands Tuesday, July 13!

Here’s what the 16-year-old actress had to share:

On kissing Kristen Stewart in The Runaways: ” It’s out of the way, and it was with my friend and a girl – no pressure. It was not something Cherie [Currie] and Joan [Jett] ever really spoke about, and that’s how it was filmed – as not that big of a deal.”

On growing up in the business: “When you start out young, people get really attached to who you are at 6 years old. I hope that The Runaways was kind of a moment to be like, ‘You know, I’m not that young little girl anymore, but I’m still not all grown up, either.”

    Hope she stays classy–unlike Sl$tty Miley and the other teenage wh%roes.
    Dakota: Listen!

    No 25 yr-old boyfriend at 16. No crotch shots and sl%tty clothes.

    Lohan is going to jail, because she lost sight of what was important. I sure as hell hope that this girl doesn’t take the same path..

    She’s always carried herself with class..

  • ugh

    Seriously, since when do you put a 16-year-old on the cover of Marie Claire. She looks silly. Doesn’t she belong on a teen magazine cover???

    <<You know, I’m not that young little girl anymore, but I’m still not all grown up, either.”

    finally one who realizes that you ARE NOT an adult at 16 !! do you get that miley!!

    i love dakota. shes is grounded and doesnt act like a celebrity and she is smart!! shes got the brains and the beauty

  • bRoWn Eyed Girls

    i agree with andreanne dakota isn’t like other little b!tchez in hollywood she’s smarter than them -thank god-

  • The Desolate One

    There’s a level of precociousness that Ms. Fanning seems to posses that a lot of the actors her age don’t. Since we are not around her, we don’t know what she does behind closed doors, but if she’s as down to earth and mature as she is in her various interviews, then she’s got Lohan, and a whole host of other young adult celebs BEAT when it comes to responsible lifestyle choices and decisions.

  • Donovan

    She seems so well raised. People should pay more attention to whoever her mom is and not that greasy mess Dina Lohan who could raise her way out of a paper bag!

  • Abby850

    I like them, Dakota and Kristen. Even though they are part of those crappy Twilight films, they both may be considered as serious actress in a future. Kristen is my age and it’s nice NOT to see just Disney ‘actress’ running around… There’s also Juno Temple, Ellen Page and so many more underground.

  • Gabby

    Adorable! She’s one of those child stars who will always be 10 years old in everyone’s mind, regardless of what they do, but at least she seems like a smart cookie.

  • miss infamous

    I love Dakota! The one thing she has that Lindsay Lohan didnt was a supportive family!

  • Lilly

    I just discovered Dakota and she has a pleasant voice and talent. She seems like a smart girl and looks good on that cover. Hopefully, she we’ll grew up to be a great actress.

  • .

    She’s cute…

  • flor

    Dakota was really talented when she was 6 or 7, she needs to come back to those kind of films and stop doing sh itty twilight movies!

  • andres

    she looks boring….

  • KellStar

    Nice to see a child on a magazine wearing clothes and not drenched in make-up. Props to Dakota and Marie-Claire. Dakota seems so mature and eloquent, I’m proud of her.

  • http://h Kaz

    She gorgoues yeah ,me 2

  • Gabby


    No actually she doesn’t seem mature, which is why this cover is so awesome! She looks her age! Like you said, she’s not covered in make-up. She’s a fresh faced, 16 year old, like she should be.
    It’s still weird to see her on Marie Claire and not Seventeen or even Instyle.

  • Dakotafan

    Congratulations to Dakota and Marie Claire on an awesome choice for the cover and a fantastic photo. Dakota oozes class through every pore and the photo portrays a genuinely beautiful classy teenager. This girl is flawless in every way and the magazine portrays that exactly – her beauty shines through without slutty clothes, heavy make up and boorish behaviour. Shining example of Hollywood Royalty.
    Simply WOW WOW and WOW again.

  • Ali

    She is quite an intelligent and sensitive girl – and actress. Always interesting in her work. There is only one thing to work on – posture, carriage, elongate the neck – before you get into your twenties. Ballet, rolfing, aston patterning, pilates, etc. would help.

  • Pac Man

    Unlike Lohan, Fanning has good parents, #2. You don’t have to worry about her screwing up.

    How does one ‘act’ like a celebrity, #4?

  • tenamoore

    Dakota looks like a 16 year old and she is really smart for her and also her parants raised her in the right way so i don’t think we have to worrie about, I love her acting but i hpe she dose ore roles other than twlight and to be honest they only reason am seeing this film is becaseu of her.

  • alinyc10

    this girl has so much class!!! not pretentious and not in a hurry to grow up. i love it that she goes to a normal high school and tried to live a normal life. really cool.

  • Lara CROFT TR

    Wow this kid is practically an adult. Still remember her being interviewed when she was 6 or 7. <

  • Val

    I love Dakota. And I love Marie Claire but she is to young for the cover!

  • jen

    You can just tell that Dakota Fanning is going to be one of the Hollywood greats. Classical beauty and amazing ability to obtain a wide range of characters perfectly. I am really looking forward to her future movies.

  • Jasmine

    I’ve always enjoyed Dakota’s work and It’s good to see her growing up gracefully. She seems like a level-headed person and I hope that continues throughout what I hope to be a long and successful career for her. :)

  • Haha

    She looks creepy.

  • Kaitlyn

    Dakota is actually from my hometown of Conyers, Georgia. See how smart and sophisticated she is, not a country hick like everyone from the north seems to think we all are in the south. Maybe she’ll make you realize that people from Georgia aren’t dumb and stupid just because we’re from the south!

  • Ayesha

    I love her SOOOO MUCH omgsh. Got to see all of her movies and she’s definitely AWESOME!!

  • jessica

    She’s 16? Wow, crazy how time flies. Though she looks younger than 16 here.
