Dakota Fanning Topics
I think one of the fun things about getting older is that more roles open up for you to do. I'm excited that there are so many more stories out there. I'm looking forward to that. I love what I'm doing, and I can't imagine doing anything else but acting. I know I want to act always.
I just feel so blessed to be able to act, because it's unbelievable to work with these great actors that I have worked with and I have all these friends that I've made on sets that I'll have all my life. That's the best part about it.
I think most people think that kids in the business are brats, but you don't have to be a brat to be an actress. I just enjoy it so much that there is no time to do anything like that. And why would I want to?
You know, I don't have an allowance. My mom and dad just didn't think that I needed one, and also, they want me to do chores around the house because I want to do them, and not because, 'Oh, you're not gonna get your allowance this week if you don't clean your room!' When my sister and I do the dishes, we pretend we're waiters, and we're like 'Here, we have tacos!' and things like that. We do things to make things fun.
I have my permit to drive but I am only just starting out driving. Im really nervous about it. I can drive along the flats now but not busy roads or the freeway. I have a long way to go before Im brave enough for that.
I've never asked for anyone's autograph. It's not that I'm embarrassed. It's just like, the actors I've worked with have become friends, so it would be like asking a friend for their autograph, and I know them so well. When you ask someone for their autograph, it's like you don't know them, but I do.
It's an honor even to get to be in movies and have the opportunity to work with the people that I have worked with. I worked with Denzel Washington in Mexico City, and it's hard to believe that I've worked with him, and Sean Penn, and Brittany Murphy, and everybody else.
I'm so blessed in my life. I don't want this time of my life to end, and I don't take anything for granted. I don't want to grow up too fast, so I'm just enjoying every minute of my life.
I can't change the speed that I'm growing up at. I know what I was meant to do, and I feel at home.
For me, because people have seen me grow up since I was six, I think people feel like they own a part of me in a way. That's completely understandable because now I'm 16, so it's been 10 years from when I was a little girl. I'm not grown up yet, but I'm a lot older, and I think sometimes people don't want to see you in certain positions. But you have to understand I'm an actress, and I'm going to do all different things, and it's not me personally. It's just a movie, and it's just acting...so many young girls are in worse positions than what I could do in a movie.
I definitely grew up differently. I mean, I've been working since I was six, and I mean, I have a very different life than other people my age when I'm working, but, I mean, when I come home, it's so normal...I just go home and have a completely normal family that's not involved in the business in any way, except my sister, so I think that it's nice to maintain that, and that helps. So no, I don't think I've grown up faster. I think I've been so lucky to have had the childhood that I had, and seeing so many things, and I've met so many people, and I think my life has only been better because of it.
When I go home, I play with my baby dolls and strollers and diaper bags, and play with my sisters.
The hardest thing is at the end you have to say bye to all these people who you have worked with for so many months. It was really sad not to see them anymore. But you have the parties that you go to and you get to see them, like the premieres and the screenings.
That was really cool. I got to kiss a little boy. I was 7 and he was 10, and his name is Thomas Curtis. He was the first boy I've ever kissed in my entire life and he was three years older than me.
One of my favorite things about doing movies is that you get to do different things you'd never do in real life.
No not really, it is just like real life. Not everyday you are happy and not everyday you are sad.
My mom, she is the most unbelievable mom that you could ever have in your entire life and she's always with me on everything. The most I've ever been away from her is two days. I love her more than anybody could ever know.
My favorite actresses are Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts and Julie Andrews.
My dad named me Dakota and my mom came up with my first name Hannah. So it's Hannah Dakota Fanning.
It's just such an honor to say that I was in something by Steven Spielberg. I feel so blessed I got to meet such great people, and I got to go to a beautiful place, Vancouver, and I had a great time.
