Dakota Fanning has grown up on the big screen. When she was seven-years-old, she appeared in I Am Sam with actor Sean Penn. She has also been in Charlotte's Web, The Runaways, and the Twilight series. This year, the busy actress can be seen in Effie, Very Good Girls, and Night Mover.
When Dakota was a child, her family moved from Georgia to California so she could act. Now, the nineteen-year-old is living on her own in New York City and attending NYU. Dakota is a smart, opinionated, confident, fashionable, reserved, homebody. She admires her sister, Elle, because she is uninhibited.
Dakota has no interested in dating casually. Her close friends include actress Kristen Stewart and some people she met in high school.
