Dakota Fanning Doesn't Want To Hear That She Still Looks Like She's 8

Dakota Fanning tries to drown out the noise around her while filming scenes for her new movie, Please Stand By, in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (January 13).

The 21-year-old actress recently chatted with SheKnows and revealed the worst part about growing up in the limelight.

“It’s all fine, I’ve kind of made my peace with the worst parts. But for the rest of my life, I will constantly hear, ‘Oh, you’re so grown up!’ When you’re 14 and someone says, ‘I thought you were still 8 years old, you go, ‘Oh! Don’t say that to me.’ It’s the last thing you want to hear,” Dakota dished.

She added, “So that was annoying for a while, but I think it’s taught me that the only people who really know you are yourself and the people you surround yourself with — your family and your friends. Those are the only opinions that truly matter and I’ve managed to turn off the negative things and it’s made me stronger.”

Elle Fanning Once Got Caught Wearing Sister Dakota's Clothes

Elle Fanning is all smiles while posing for the new cover of The Edit.

Here’s what the 17-year-old actress had to share with the outlet:

On wanting to emulate the career of her sister Dakota: “It was like, if Dakota can do it, I can do it.”

On not talking to Dakota about acting: “No, absolutely not! I never look at her scripts. She’s doing a movie right now in Berlin; I don’t even know what it’s about.”

On her style and stealing Dakota’s clothes: “[My style] used to be hippie, bohemian, Virgin Suicides-like, but now I’m not afraid to wear pants, as long as there’s a twist. I used to steal Dakota’s clothes, but one time the paparazzi got me. She called me from New York: ‘What are you doing in my clothes?’”

Also pictured below: Dakota runs errands on Tuesday (September 8) in New York City.
