Dakota Fanning Is All Grown Up; Turns 21 And Makes Appearance On WWHL

Stars At A Viewing Of 'Watch What Happens Live'

Just yesterday Dakota Fanning was an adorable child actor and now she’s all grown up and still as adorable.  She turned 21 this week and celebrated with an appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.  She played some games, did a few Jello shots and didnt’ have a bad word to say about anyone.  This girl is too sweet and seems to have lived a really normal life despite her fame!

Check out a video of her playing “Plead the Fifth” with Andy Cohen.   In the photo above she’s heading home in NYC after her interview.

Dakota Fanning Shops With Her Mom

Dakota Fanning Shops In Beverly Hills With Her Mom

Dakota Fanning and her MOM!? How EMBARRASSING!

Just kidding. The actress was spotted shopping in Beverly Hills with her mom Heather Arrington yesterday, and to be honest, her mom looks more like her awkward babysitter than her actual mom.  Dakota will be celebrating her 21st birthday next month so she doesn’t need anyone escorting her shopping, though when I was 21, my mom still foot my credit card bill, so…

Do you think Dakota’s mom treated her to some new clothes?

She recently revealed that she isn’t a big fan of social media. She said, “Yeah, I don’t have a Twitter, Facebook or anything – and I’m perfectly happy with that. Obviously lots of people do, but sometimes I think you can become engrossed in that world as the real world passes you by.”

She added, “People on their phones all the tome in a pet peeve of mine in real life.”

Dakota Fanning Recognizes That Fame is ‘Not a Normal Thing’

Dakota Fanning Arriving On A Flight At LAX

Dakota Fanning had her breakthrough performance at the age of 7, when playing opposite Sean Penn in I Am Sam.  She was nominated for a SAG Award because of her performance, becoming the youngest nominee in history.  And she hasn’t stopped acting since.  Now 20, her roles have clearly transitioned into more mature themes.

Her next film, Very Good Girls, has a limited release on Friday.  She costars in the film with Elizabeth Olsen, and the plot revolves around two girls determined to lose their virginity before college.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Fanning discusses what it was like growing up in the spotlight.

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. 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.”

As for roles she hopes to have in the future:

I think sometimes people can get lost in the bigger special effects, science fiction, robot stuff, and those are cool and fun to watch too, but I think it’s so important to sometimes step back and watch something that’s about life and human interaction.

Fanning is incredibly talented, and one of those young actors who seems to have made the transition from child to adult fairly seamlessly.  I hope she can keep her act together going forward, since she seems to have a good head on her shoulders.
