Dakota Fanning Talks Growing Up A Child Star: 'I Have A Different Relationship With Fame Now That I'm Older'

Dakota Fanning keeps it cute in a studded collar blouse for a business meeting in New York City on Tuesday afternoon (August 5).

The 20-year-old actress picked up an iced coffee on her way to the hotel.

“It is a hard thing because I don’t really know any other way. But, it definitely still is a surreal experience as you get older,” Dakota recently shared with Huffington Post about growing up a child star.

She continued, “I think when you’re a child, it’s hard for you to know your life is different from anyone else’s. And then, of course, as you get older, you realize that there are billions of people on the planet and everybody lives a different way and everybody has a different situation. As you grow up, you think, ‘Oh, no, that’s not normal for everyone.’ And so, yeah, I think I have a different relationship with it now that I’m older.”

Dakota Fanning: My Pet Peeve is People Always on Their Phones

Dakota Fanning makes a quick stop at Starbucks for an iced coffee before getting on with her day on Wednesday afternoon (July 30) in New York City.

That same day, the 20-year-old actress’ younger sister Elle, 16, showed off her midriff while laughing with some pals in Studio City, Calif.

Dakota recently opened up about her aversion to social media.

“Yeah, I don’t have a Twitter, Facebook or anything — and I’m perfectly happy with that,” Dakota told the NY Daily News. “Obviously lots of people do, but sometimes I think you can become engrossed in that world as the real world passes you by. People on their phones all the time is a pet peeve of mine in real life.”

“Doing a movie together is something we would definitely be interested in, but it’s just about finding the right thing,” Dakota tells Teen Vogue about the possibility of working with sister Elle.

She continued to say, “Most of the things that have been brought to us had to do with playing sisters, and we both think it would be more unique to not play sisters. It’s something we’ll definitely do, but it’s one of those things you want to do really amazingly one time.”

Recently, Very Good Girls writer-director Naomi Foner interviewed Dakota and asked if having the same career as sister Elle has made them closer.

Elle and I really don’t talk about acting very much,” Dakota told her in the New York Daily News interview. “I don’t know if that will change as we get older. In terms of understanding what she’s doing with her life, we both have an understanding [of filmmaking] that not many people have. But I don’t think it’s made us closer. Our closeness has come from just being sisters.”
