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.”

Watch Dakota Fanning Seduce Kevin Kline in 'The Last of Robin Hood' Trailer

Dakota Fanning grabs a cool drink from Starbucks with a friend while out on Sunday afternoon (June 28) in Studio City, Calif.

Earlier in the week, the trailer for the 20-year-old actress’s new movie, The Last of Robin Hood, debuted.

The Last of Robin Hood follows Errol Flynn (Kevin Kline) in his latter years as he and Beverly Aadland (Fanning) enjoy an affair that spans the globe and was enabled by the girl’s fame-obsessed mother, Florence (Susan Sarandon).

It all came crashing to an end in October 1959 when events forced the relationship into the open, creating an avalanche of publicity castigating Beverly and her mother.

The Last of Robin Hood is set to hit theaters on August 29th. 15+ pics inside…

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.

Dakota Fanning Talks Emotional Scenes in 'Night Moves'

Jamie Strachan drapes his arm around girlfriend actress Dakota Fanning‘s shoulders while out in New York City on Sunday afternoon (June 8).

The couple, who sort of matched their clothes, picked up a little something from Ralph Lauren.

“Doing the action in the boat [when we’re about to blow up the dam] was surprisingly emotional,” Dakota shared with Yahoo about her new film, Night Moves.

She continued, “It was towards the very beginning of the shoot and it was really cold. It was three in the morning and we were doing all this really intense stuff and for the three main characters, that’s what they’ve been building up to. Seeing that dam, and how big it is, and [how] they’re on this tiny boat going up to do this act of sabotage — it is a weird spiritual experience for them.”

FYI: Jamie is wearing Levi’s jeans.
