Dakota Fanning: I Want There to Be More Female Directors!

Dakota Fanning has a bit of a giggle fit as she and beau Jamie Strachan hold hands in New York City on Tuesday (June 10),

The 20-year-old actress and her guy shopped at Foot Locker that day and picked up some sporting goods!

“For me, it’s more about wanting there to be more female directors. There’s no shortage of women who want to make films. There are so many male directors and so many male-driven films and there are significantly fewer female-driven films and female directors — and that’s not because they don’t exist,” Dakota recently told Yahoo about the shortage of female films out there.

    Yeah. It’s not like virtually every film that comes out is some chick flick drivel.
