Dakota Fanning: Short Hair for 'Now Is Good'!

Dakota Fanning debuts a new dramatic ‘do on the set of her latest film, Now Is Good, on Monday (July 11) in London, England.

The 17-year-old actress, sporting a blonde pixie cut, stars in the film about a girl dying of leukemia who compiles a list of things she’d like to do before passing away. Topping the list: losing her virginity.

Also pictured getting ready to shoot some scenes: Dakota‘s co-stars Jeremy Irvine and Kaya Scodelario.

Dakota has a few other projects coming up as well, including the drama Very Good Girls and the thriller Mississippi Wild.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Dakota’s new ‘do? Do you think it’s a wig or did she chop off her locks?

I love how professional she is. A lot of other actresses (or just girls in general) probably wouldn’t cut their hair that short, especially when they can’t really pull it off that well – and to be honest, she doesn’t really pull it off that well. But she’s doing it for a role and clearly acting’s more important to her then her appearance, so good for her! She’s great! :)

I hope it’s a wig! It looks really bad!

Reminds me of something Meryll Streep would have done in her earlier years as an actress. I think Dakota has a bright future as an actress since she is willing to transform for a role as needed. She isn’t vain about it and that is refreshing. To bad more of young hollywood doesn’t have Dakota’s devotion to their craft.

Most likely a good wig, Dakota was slated to be in “My Sister’s Keeper” with Elle, but did not shave her head as Sofia Vassileva ended up doing. But still, pixie cut works on her.

Is that wig? I am surprised that she would cut her hair. I remember a few years ago when they did My Sister’s Keeper they had offered the role to Dakota but she refused because she would have had to cut her hair. There is no amount of money in the world for which I would cut my hair that short. Hope she wins an Oscar.

it looks cute! I hope she keeps it for a while and plays with it and does some cool things with it! I’m loving these young actresses right now taking risks and getting into fashion!

# 8

Cute look. She is a dedicated, classy and beautiful young actress.

# 9

I hope it is a wig.
She is so talented.

I hope Dakota and Jeremy Irvine Date, they will be so cute together :-P

She’s so pretty but she looks way better with her long blonde hair :/

The girls that have been cutting their hair short like Emma Watson etc. all look so much better with long hair.

I think it looks cute.

i read the book. its actually called “Before I Die” and I honestly cried when i read that book. Dakata is so brave taking on the challenge with this project and will surely not dissapoint ! :)

Girls stop cutting your hair so short

I thought it was Eminem!

Hey remember Natalie Portman went “bald” for her Vendetta movie huh – and thats how professional actresses must be if it alls for the movie’s realistic purposes.

im surprised most people are actually being understanding towards the haircut. i was expecting nasty comments. i do think its ironic however, that its okay for dakota to do it for a role, but when kristen stewart cut her hair for the joan jett role and she received a ton of hateful comments about it. but regardless, its good see people appreciating dedicated actors like dakota


She refused to take the role in My Sisters Keeper because they wouldn’t let her wear a bald cap, so why do you give her credit for cutting her hair now? Only reason she did it is it’s the new “thing” to do in Hollywood. She is a great actress but let’s not give her credit for doing something brave after she just refused to do it for another movie role.


She didn’t cut it. It’s a wig.

Nice guys, lets hold a grudge @ 07/13/2011 at 1:04 am

Dakota was much younger when she refused to cut her hair for my sister’s keeper. She was what, 15? Her high school classmates wouldn’t be as sympathetic to her choice than college students, she wouldn’t be able to be a bald cheerleader or be voted homecoming queen if she was bald!

Nice guys, lets hold a grudge @ 07/13/2011 at 1:18 am

I’m not saying that her classmates would discriminate against baldness, but she would look very strange in pictures. Those are memories she will and her kids will look back on…
Dakota is probably not a method actor who has to live her life exactly like her character. The producers are just milking the idea of Dakota going bald to make more money off her.
Cameron Diaz wore a bald cap in my sister’s keeper, just food for thought.

Emma Watson chopped her locks and she looks MUCH prettier… But Dakota? I don’t know… I think it’s a BIG NO NO!!!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. She use to be hot now she looks like Ellen mixed with Eminem.

She wouldnt do the movie My Sister’s Keeper because she wouldnt shave her head and they didnt want her to wear a bald cap and now she cuts her hair and is seen as professional. Stupid. BUT maybe i’m being overly critical. I mean people change over time and its been a couple years. She was only a teen when they asked her to shave her head and that must have been hard for her to do. I guess she becoming more mature and professional. GOOODDD FOR DAKOTA.

Weird seeing her with short hair. But doesn’t matter, she’s a great actor.
