The Once Upon A Time star also talked about the expectations of growing up famous and her tentative use of social media
At just 25 years old Dakota Fanning could technically pass for a Hollywood veteran.
She’s also worked on films with Tom Cruise, Kurt Russell, Robert de Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and most recently, Quentin Tarantino in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Fanning talked to Net-A-Porter about the good and bad sides of growing up in the spotlight. “The difficult part about starting so young, which I’ve totally come to accept, is that when you grow up and become a woman, people think you’re younger,” Fanning explained. “The other day, my mom, my sister [Elle] and I were in Las Vegas for my sister’s 21st birthday and somebody said, ‘Are you Dakota Fanning? You’re that child?’ And my mom was like, poor Dakota. It is what it is. It never really bothered me. But I can see how it could make you run in the opposite direction and grow up too quick and not make the best decisions because you’re trying to run away from people telling you that you’re still little.”
As a child, Fanning says she felt immense pressure to do the right thing and never make a mistake, but a lot of that pressure disappeared when she turned 21. “I felt there was such an expectation for me not to mess up,” Fanning told Net-A-Porter. “Which could have driven me crazy, because that’s an outrageous thing to put on a younger person, who’s supposed to make mistakes. And I certainly have made mistakes, but just privately. When I turned 21, I felt like a weight had lifted; I felt more freedom to come into my own.”
Though it was difficult to grow up with that spotlight, Fanning admits there were great things that came from being a child star as well. “I got my first iPod and cell phone from Tom Cruise when we worked together,” Fanning recalls. “I got a horse from Kurt Russell. [W]hen I turned 10, I was making a movie with Robert De Niro and there was a whole surprise set-up in the lunchroom, with my favorite food and everyone in party hats. [F]or Valentine’s Day, Michelle Pfeiffer decorated my whole trailer with pink and red balloons and little trinkets and candies, then did the same for my birthday, so that’s how I remember my seventh birthday.”
Even with the spotlight on her, Fanning says she has been able to maintain a relatively normal life. “I’m lucky – I have the best friends in the world,” Fanning raves of her friendships outside of Hollywood, “My group of girlfriends has been with me since ninth grade. We’ve been through so much together and have done such a great job of staying connected. My best friend’s getting married next month. It’s like life is starting to happen to everybody. We always talked about when I get married, you’ll be at my wedding, and it’s like, well, here we are. I can’t wait for all of those milestones. I can’t wait to have kids.”

Following some uncertainty about whether or not Quentin Tarantino’s latest film would premiere at Cannes, it has now been confirmed that it will. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will premiere later this month at the Cannes Film Festival.
Since Tarantino’s ninth film is set for a late July release in theaters, there was speculation that the film would not be completed in time to be shown at the Festival. The rumours have dispersed with confirmation from the Festival that the movie will be added to the competition line up as well. This year’s Cannes Festival will mark twenty-five years since Tarantino’s classic and acclaimed film, Pulp Fiction, premiered at Cannes in 1994. Ever since then, the screenwriter and director has had a long-standing relationship with the film festival. His 2009 film, Inglourious Basterds, also premiered at the prominent festival.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is written and directed by Tarantino. It boasts an impressive all-star cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, Bruce Dern, Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Lena Dunham, and more. Following its world premiere at Cannes, the film will have a nationwide release in US theaters on July 26th of this year. [Source]
Dakota Fanning would have accepted a tiny role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood just to work with Quentin Tarantino.
Fanning landed the role of Squeaky Fromme in Tarantino’s upcoming ninth film, a real-life member of the Manson Family, who was sentenced to life in prison for the attempted assassination of U.S. President Gerald Ford in 1975. She was released in 2009 after serving nearly 34 years.
Fanning stars alongside the likes of Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie in the upcoming drama, and admits the project has been a career-defining moment for her.
“It was such a dream come true for me to be a part of it and really something to cross off the list… I would have probably played any character that he had asked me or had chosen me for,” she grinned to The Hollywood Reporter. “It was a real cherry on top that it was an incredible, fascinating, challenging character. But I would’ve been like Girl No. 1.”
The all-star ensemble cast also features Al Pacino, Damian Lewis, Kurt Russell, late actor Luke Perry and frequent Tarantino collaborator Tim Roth.
It’s set for release in July (19), and follows the story of a faded television actor and his stunt double during the final years of Hollywood’s Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles.
Talking to Collider about her research for the movie, the 25-year-old actress admitted it was a little scary learning about Charles Manson’s murderous cult.
“There are a lot of resources out there, for better or for worse, and I was very immersed. It was interesting and challenging. It’s twisted,” she said. [Source]
