Dakota Fanning Says She's 'Happily Not Single'

Dakota Fanning is in full bloom for the cover of Vogue Australia‘s February 2018 issue.

The 23-year-old The Alienist actress opened up to the mag about staying out of trouble as a child actor and also how she’s “happily not single.” (If you didn’t know, Dakota is dating Henry Frye right now)

On dating: Dakota says she’s “happily not single”, but not dating “a public person.”"I’ve always sort of dated somebody a little bit removed… I see the whirlwind of [famous] people dating [famous] people and it just looks so intense.”

On navigating the rocky path of cliches that many child actors trip over: “I still don’t know how to answer this. I think because I’ve always maintained that I never felt that I was entitled to anything because I did movies. I guess that comes from my mum. It took her years and years to admit that we lived in Los Angeles… I just never wanted to make too big of a mistake that jeopardized what I love doing. There can be other reasons that it goes away – nothing is ever guaranteed. But, I never wanted it to be taken away from me because I had made a really bad decision, you know? And I’m also really scared of my mum and didn’t want to get in trouble or disappoint anybody.”

On staying sane despite playing tough characters: “[There's] a boundary, and I’ve always said or thought this in the back of my mind: maybe it’s because I started when I was younger, but it’s all make-believe. It’s like: ‘Oh, I’m going to go pretend to do this.’ As I’ve gotten older, the boundaries have always been clear and that’s stayed with me. So I still am just like: ‘Oh, I pretended that happened to me.’ It’s also important to remember that just because you acted something doesn’t make you actually know what it’s like.”

Dakota Fanning Reveals She Has a Secret Instagram Account

Dakota Fanning has a big social media secret!

The 23-year-old Please Stand By actress opened up during her appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday (January 25).

“Maybe I’ve blown my cover now,” she teased as the host revealed her private Instagram account that she uses for stalking people.

“You know before you could search who people followed?” Dakota explained. “You used to have to scroll through 523 people, but sometimes that was the only way to make connections, you know?”

She added, “You know when you just feel somebody’s lying to you, and you have to get down to the bottom of it? I just like to know if I meet someone … like who they are friends… I don’t know!”

“It makes me sound like a big creep!” she laughed, as Seth replied, “No… like a little one.”

Dakota also discussed the complicated costumes she wore while filming The Alienist and her mother’s intense love of sports.
