Dakota Fanning Talks Going on Dates: 'I Find Dates Horrific'

Dakota Fanning takes the cover of Town & Country magazine’s November 2016 issue, on newsstands October 11.

Here’s what the 22-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On the perception of her as the “perfect child”: “I’ve been thinking lately about how much do I care what other people’s preconceived notions of me are. They definitely exist. They always will, to an extent, because I’ve been acting for 16 years already and I’m 22… I was raised by very traditional Southern parents with Southern manners. You don’t air your dirty laundry to people that aren’t your family or your friends. Why would I ever want to portray myself as anything other than together?”

On being subjected to lewd comments at work: “I’ve been lucky that I haven’t had anything directly done to me. It’s different when you’re a kid. People protect you from that. [As I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed] an energy change. I’m sure it will happen soon. Hopefully not, but odds are it probably will.”

On single life and first dates: “The way I prefer to meet someone is through a friend [because that means the person] is most likely not a freak. I find dates, in general, horrific. We have to sit there and ask these questions and pretend to eat a meal, and it just feels so stiff.”

FYI: Dakota is wearing Chanel on the cover.

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).
