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.”

Elle Fanning To Star as Writer Mary Shelley in 'A Storm In The Stars'

Elle Fanning heads back to her ride after a dance class in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (July 30).

It was just announced that the 16-year-old actress will be portraying “Frankenstein” writer Mary Shelley in A Storm In The Stars.

According to THR, the period drama directed by Haifaa al-Mansour and produced by Amy Baer, tells the story of the passionate love affair between dangerously charismatic poet Percy Shelley and 17-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft, who would a year later write Frankenstein as Mary Shelley, a young woman out of step with her time who wrote one of the first pieces of literary genre fiction in modern times.

Elle is amazingly smart and talented and very much relates to Mary as a young woman,” Ms. Baer shared. “She is going to do something extraordinary in this role that will transition her from a compelling young adult to a formidable leading lady.”

Recently, her older sister Dakota opened up about how Elle has a completely separate career.

“[Elle's] never asked me whether she should do a movie or not,” Dakota told Teen Vogue. “I always know what she’s filming and where she is and who she’s working with, but I don’t give her advice on it.”

She continued to say, “We both have our own paths that we’re confident in, so she’s never asked me. Of course I’d tell her if she wanted me to, but I also think that choosing the films that you want to do is a really personal thing—it’s kind of just a feeling that you get and you’re the only person who understands it.”

FYI: Elle is wearing a Christopher Kane dress and Rupert Sanderson shoes.
