Dakota Fanning to 'Town & Country': I'm Never Going to Parade My Personal Life

Dakota Fanning gets up close and personal for Town & Country magazine’s August 2014 issue, on newsstands July 8.

Here’s what the 20-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On privacy: “I’m just never going to parade my personal life. If you choose to not do it, it’s not hard to not do it… Any part of an artistic business is made better by there being a little mystery. That’s what movies are about.”

On growing up in the public eye: “Because people saw me grow up, there’s this weird sort of ownership that they feel for me and that is…difficult. Because it’s not real; it’s in their minds. People don’t know me as much as they think they do. I’ll be walking down the street and someone will say hello, and I’ll go, ‘Oh, hi!’ I’ll think I must know this person if they said hello, but then you realize, you don’t know them.”

On movies she’d like to direct one day: “It’s very hard to find a movie about a strong woman – one that doesn’t have anything to do with a guy or the love of a guy or the heartbreak of a guy. Is that the only crisis that women deal with: love and loss of love and sadness? There’s more to life than that.”
