She look like Mr. Bean… Emma Watson do crop = Great.. Dakota Fanning do crop = Not so great…
And i don’t think haircut affects her career…

I like the change–real or not. For awhile, I’ve been thinking that something new would be nice.

I think its a wig because for the didnt play the role in ‘my sisters keeper’ bcuz she had to shave her head.

her sister pretty and cute.
Dakota no

There’s a difference between being bald and cutting your hair really short, though. And also, as others have said, she was like 15 and in high school around the time of My Sister’s Keeper. I don’t know anyone who’d be brave enough to go bald at all, let alone IN HIGH SCHOOL!

BTW, when does Mississippi Wild shoot? Seems like it disappeared from the news for 3 months or so.

I just can’t believe she cut her hair. I’m sure it is a wig. It doesn’t make her a bad or a not devoted actress. She has a lot of movies coming next, if she rly cut her hair she’ll have to do something like 3 movies with her hair like that. It seems impossible to me. I’m sure she can play the part perfectly with a wig. Some actors need to bring home the character with them, to always be their character even when the camera is not rolling, some others don’t. I think Dakota is part of the 2d type of actors. It doens’t make her less good…she’s one of the best. She’ll rock this part wig or not wig

@Nice guys, lets hold a grudge: Because being homecoming queen is sooo important! Dakota’s the best actress of her generation, but that’s not a risk in her career, that’s a WIG!

Have anyone thought that maybe Dakota didn’t think it was worth shaving her hair for My sister’s Keeper? Maybe she didn’t love the script that much. She ones said in an interview when she was asked how much she would change for a movie that it all depends, if you feel really strongly about it you will do anything for it.
So i guess she didn’t feel that strongly about My Sisters Keeper as she probably did for Now is Good.

Stop acting like this girl is such a good actress because she supposedly cut her hair short. Elle is much better, anyway.

when did she gain so much weight?

that ***** didnt take the role for ‘my sisters keeper’ because she had to shave her head, so probably this is a WIG

Movie is like the Bucket List but for teeny boppers?

Dakota looks cute

OMG, she looks like a cross between Ellen Degeneres and Nurse Jackie! Dakota looks absolutely horrendous with this short hair style. Even if she put makeup on it would still be horrible. With this look, she could totally play Nurse Jackie’s younger sister!!!! Whoever wanted her to cut her hair this short should not be in business anylonger.

another wannabe mia farrow!

sorry but it makes her look ILL! super pale and short hair.yikes! hospital chic?

idk it could be a wig because i know dakota didnt want to cut her hair for the runaways and that was no where nearly as drastic and she was really sad when kristen actually cut her hair.

she looks gorgeous but i prefer her with long hair doesn’t matter we will get used, Emma watson is a great actress i really like her

I’m not saying the Fanning girls are great actresses, but, there probably isn’t room enough on the sidewalk along Hollywood’s walk of fame for stars big enough to commend the girls. Maybe if Hollywood annexed the San Fernando Valley. (The film rating system is arguably one the greatest evils on earth, it killed much of the bulk of man’s humanity by balkanizing the art of movies. Movies should have been left to naturally sort out by genres, not ratings. Now we have grotesque caricatures at the so-called “adult” end, and minimal texture on the purile side.) But hey, maybe that combined real estate still wouldn’t be room enough, as Dakota’s own name is already the size of two states.

Oh please, like shaving her head “IN HIGH SKEWLL!!” would’ve been the worst thing in the world. What about actual cancer patients who don’t have a choice? She’s a vain, self-centered unempathetic person.
And nice try copying Nat Wolff’s new movie Special Things To Do. The plots sound exactly the same, but everyone will know which came first.

She looks hideous; and please, in this age and time there is such an invention called WIGS, so no woman needs to go to that extreme for a role.

She’s such a Jodie Foster wannabe.

This has to be based on the book Before I Die by Jenny Downham. It’s such a good book. Didn’t know they were making it into a movie! Wonderful!

This sounds sort of like Kristen Stewart’s old movie Cake Eaters.
A sick girl trying to lose her virginity.
