OK, I know it’s a little harsh to say such hateful things about a seventeen-year-old, but you know how it goes sometimes. Still, I guess I shouldn’t be such a bitch, considering she chopped it all off to play a chemo patient in her new movie, Now is Good. According to IMDB:
“A girl dying of leukemia compiles a list of things she’d like to do before passing away. Topping the list is her desire to lose her virginity.”
Hm. Interesting concept for a movie – it’s like The Bucket List, just for kids. And Dakota Fanning, I mean, she’s a great actress. Definitely someone to continue watching on the big screen, because she’s going to be an even bigger name in coming years, you mark my words. Still, though, and sick or not – I just can’t see Dakota Fanning trying to seduce anyone – especially while looking like Marshall Mathers.

Look at this little girl, you guys! Out little Dakota Fanning is all grown up. It seems like just yesterday she was everyone’s favorite little actress. Remember I Am Sam? Or how she was little adorable Reese Witherspoon in Sweet Home Alabama? No doubt, this girl has always had some talent, but that’s not what this is about. No, today, this is about precious Dakota getting her high school diploma and entering into adulthood*. Congratulations!
Do you remember your high school graduation? How proud you felt? How you had to sit between the twin brothers who came after you alphabetically because the principal didn’t trust them not to get in a fight during the ceremony, which you mostly missed because they were arguing over you anyway? Ah, to be young again …
*Really, she enters into adulthood when she turns 18 next February. Don’t perv out just yet, guys.

Who is that easy-breezy Hollywood starlet steppin’ out at LAX? Why it’s little Dakota Fanning, all grown up, lookin’ like a regular ol’ L.A. gal with those carefully torn boyfriend jeans and chunky platforms.
Check out that luggage with the LVs and the Ray-Ban-ish glasses. There’s a girl who truly gets how to incorporate contemporary style into her day-to-day look! Sure, she’s wearing shoes that border on Gaga and the light pink really doesn’t do much for her skin tone, but hey! She’s been famous since she was four and she could buy all of us, so who am I to say anything?
But for real: Aren’t you glad this girl seems kinda normal? Remember when she was coming up and people were like, “Oh, that girl’s going to be CRAZY once she’s older?” Everyone seemed to think that about her and the little dude from The Sixth Sense and only one of them wound up being a total failure.

I don’t know why this disturbs me as much as it does, but whenever I see Dakota Fanning in a TV interview, I’m like, “What. The. Fuck?” Check out her in Kimmel last night talking about taking the ACTs and learning to drive. It’s like, “Yo, weren’t you still a fetus last year?”
I’m sure it’s just because I grew up watching her grow up and because she’s nearly a decade younger than me that I can’t get over it. That being said, I’m sure I’m not the only one. In many ways, the Twilight series were the perfect movies for Dakota to make her transformation from teen-to-woman during. She’s able to keep her life-long fans engaged while not doing something that will completely shock them or turn them off. What I’m wondering is this: What’s the next move for this chick?
I’m thinking her playing a romcom ingenue might be a bit much, but taking a break to concentrate on college doesn’t really seem like D.F.’s style either.
Do you also think it’s kinda bizarre to watch this young girl grow up in front of our eyes, or do I just need to come to terms with the concept of time?

“She was 15, and I wasn’t allowed to grope her. I’m actually not kidding, there are major restrictions that I don’t remember from when I was younger.”
-Kristen Stewart, talking about her kissing scene with Dakota Fanning in The Runaways.
(Sorry for three Kristen Stewart posts in a row. I guess she’s just that fascinating.)
