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.

Dakota Fanning tackles a dying 17-year-old in her new film, ‘Now is Good’

Dakota Fanning is no stranger to playing darker, deeper roles. Now the 18-year-old actress is taking on a even more serious role than normal, that of a dying 17-year-old girl.

In ‘Now is Good’, Dakota plays a dying cancer patient and sports an English accent. The film, based on the 2007 YA novel Before I Die, Fanning’s a 17-year-old leukemia patient who decides to waive treatment as her condition gets worse in order to live life to the fullest.

War Horse’s Jeremy Irvine co-stars as the boy Fanning falls in love with.

Film is due later this year.

Here are some new pictures of Dakota Fanning arriving at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, NY.
