Dakota Fanning Has Always Been 'A Known Person'

Dakota Fanning Has Always Been 'A Known Person'

Elle Fanning holds on to a water bottle as she heads to dance class in Studio City, Calif., on Thursday afternoon (August 21).

The 16-year-old Maleficent actress was seen just the day before heading to the same studio for another class rocking a Rolling Stones sweater.

Elle‘s older sister, Dakota, was also spotted in New York City, running a few errands.

“Being a known person is pretty much all I’ve known,” Dakota shared in a recent interview. “I don’t remember much of a time when people didn’t know who I was. But you grow up and think about things differently, and you realise how strange fame is. If I can achieve it, I don’t want anyone to know anything about me.”

She added, “There was so much mystery in the movies back then [in the movies]. Some of that mystery has gone. I’m trying to work out what happened. Why do we need to know everything about everyone?”

    Dakota raises an interesting question when comparing old Hollywood to the modern day Hollywood. Unfortunately for her and other actors/actresses out there Hollywood can never go back to that level of mystery or discreetness old Hollywood had
    Elle has a great body btw

    Well, in answer to Dakota’s question, I think it’s the fact that the media has changed. Even back in the old days when they had just the tabloids, people gossiped about celebrities and obsessed about them, but there were limits. As the media has changed, and especially with social media and stations like E! and MTV, there are so many more ways to follow people around and for celebrities to be exposed.

    On the other hand, we have seen some celebrities lead their lives more quietly and out of the public eye than others, so it can be done.

    Its not a contest but, I have to say that I have found Elle the more interesting and talented of the two. Maybe I should say that since Dakota has gotten older she hasn’t captured my attention like she did as a much younger actor. The first time I saw Elle was in Halle Berry’s suspense thriller THE CALL and Fanning was just wow!

    @Love The Shoes: Elle wasn’t in that movie. You’re mistaking her with Abigail Beslin

    When you experience something wonderful it’s natural to want to tell others so they can have the same experience.
