Dakota Fanning: 'It's Ridiculous We're Still Talking About the Gender-Wage Gap'

Dakota Fanning shows off her seductive side in this inside shot from the October 2016 issue of Elle Canada.

Here’s what the 22-year-old American Pastoral actress shared:

On growing up in front of the camera: “I don’t think it’s had much of an effect. I think of myself as a confident person. Of course, everyone has things they wish they could change—anyone who says they don’t is a big liar! But when you’re acting, if you’re doing it for the right reasons, it’s about so much more than the way you look.”

On the gender-wage gap in Hollywood: “It’s frustrating that you still have to talk about it. As part of my school, I’ve studied lots of different periods, and if you go back to, like, The Taming of the Shrew, it’s talking about the disparity between genders, and it’s crazy that we still haven’t cracked that.”

On her personal philosophy of life: “I am a woman, and I’m very proud of that. I love men. I believe all human beings are equal and should be treated accordingly. I try not to worry about things, and I always say to myself that one day what you’re experiencing will be a memory.”

Dakota is also pictured below, running errands around New York City on Tuesday (September 27).

    I’m going to try and remain diplomatic here, Dakota is a pretty girl, she is, but how much have they photo shopped some of these images?. Her eyes appear much larger and less..ehh squinty (for lack of a better word) than usual. I feel like they’ve tried to make her look like Amber Heard. Which isn’t a bad thing…but what happened to looking like yourself?
