Dakota Fanning Covers 'Cosmopolitan' February 2012

Dakota Fanning sparkles in J. Mendel on the cover of Cosmopolitan‘s February 2012 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (February 10).

Here’s what the 17-year-old actress, who was named Cosmo‘s “Fun Fearless Female of the Year,” had to share with the mag:

On her superhuman aura: “Since I was young, I’ve always known who I was. I never really had to go through finding who I am. I’ve always felt really secure.”

Kristen Stewart, on Dakota’s determination while filming The Runaways: “We had a few scenes that were crazy intimidating, and maybe once or twice, she was like ‘Okay, I have a butterfly in my stomach.’ Meanwhile, I’m hyperventilating! Sometimes I give her s— for being so on the ball.”

    Why is a 17 year old on the cover of Cosmo??

    @Amber: Why not?! (o_0)

    @Amber: Why not?!

  • mimicover

    I wonder the same. What the hell is doing an underage girl on the cover of Cosmopolitan?? Too much marketing?? Obviously there is.

  • Shannon

    @Robsten_Fan:Probably because it just looks a little weird to see Dakota next to the words “His Best Sex Ever,” “Too Naughty to Say Here! But You Have to Try this Sex Trick, ” and “Um Vagina are you okay down there?”

  • KLC

    That’s not okay. I agree with Shannon. She’s a minor and they have all that on the cover with her. That’s not right.

  • OK

    Those headlines are so stupid…

  • Asha

    They couldn’t have waited until she was 18? It is quite inappropriate to put a minor on a magazine that focuses on sex.

  • kpsm2

    does she have a film coming out or something? She’s on the cover of Elle UK as well and I don’t really understand why..

  • mel

    Ugh, I hate when PR people sexualize child actors so they can attract more people to their movies. Dakota is a very talented girl who has been famous since the age of 4 and EVERyBody respects her so why do they have to make her do something like this?

  • Sarah89

    lol, it kinda looks like her head is not on the right place. :p and why did they photoshop her so much?

  • stacey

    PHOTOSHOP.

  • Lurker

    More importantly, who the He@k is that? Why photoshop a fresh 17 years old girl to the point where she is unrecognizable.

  • It’s Me

    Wtf is a minor doing on the cover of Cosmo? Um, Cosmo, I hope you know that this girl is SEVENTEEN. Her parents obviously don’t care if their daughter’s on the cover of a sex magazine.

  • LaCroix

    Why is this so shocking? Ever seen her movie Houndog? Now what was nasty for a 13 year old to do..Obv her parents don’t care.

  • cjohn

    Since I was young, I’ve always known who I was. I never really had to go through finding who I am. I’ve always felt really secure.”…………..am 24 n iam stil confused abt me

  • Gigi

    She should be on the cover of well, SEVENTEEN! not a mature magazine for adult women that focuses on how to do things in the bedroom…..

  • nishant

    i feel dissapointed as a fan of dakota… i mean… this isn’t the rite time…

  • Shawna

    Wow. Completely innapropriate. I guess her parents just care about money and not about their child, and yes, at 17 she is still a child.

  • DONT GO TO HER HOUSE

    Dakota, has never been inside of Kristen house the smell along would make you puck. That cat waste it self on there couch and they know it… I need to get some water from the pool so I can take a shi@@… DAD……

    Hi everyone my name is Nicole Weider- Cosmo is aggressively and actively marketing pornographic material and tips to underage teens, which is a crime. Join me in my Anti Cosmo mission to get this porn magazine sold to only adults!!

    her Bday is on February 23d and she is almost 18…Though I think she is too young for all those mag covers and stuff)) My, she is just a kid…It all looks so funny, those heels, red lipstick… I think the same is with Abigail Breslin, they write about her: ” Oh, look! Little MIss Sunshie is all grown up!” Grown up??? today 15 is considered as an adult? WTF? It really sucks…
    All those famous child stars have become more restraint and shy in front of the camera coz they’ve realized now that they’re watched by millions of people and now they DO care how they look in.

    I know she’s turning 18 the month that issue represents but why can’t they make her wait? I have never seen them pull strings like that before. Not ever for Miley Cyrus. Speaking of which how come Miley hasn’t been featured yet? She’s 19 and way more famous.

    I am also unhappy with some of the stuff that I found that they have removed from the magazine like the “bitch it out” page and the “you you you” section. Looks like someone knew is running the show and making the magazine lame.
