Most of you remember her when she was still young in Danzel Washington’s Man on Fire and in the recently concluded Twilight Saga where she acted as part of the special vampires, The Volutri but the 18-year-old has revealed she really does not date.
Fanning made the revelation in the March issue of Glamour Magazine. “I don’t really date,” she was quoted as saying. “I have a weird vision of relationships because my parents have known each other since second grade, and they got married right out of college,” she explains. “I’ve always thought that’s what it’s supposed to be like, and if it’s not, then I don’t want to waste my time on it. Even when I was 14, I was like, ‘I’m not gonna marry this person. What’s the point of doing it?’ It’s not me being naive. I just know what it’s supposed to be like. And I think until I feel that, I cannot be bothered.”
Dakota also credits her 14-year-old sister, Elle, as being an inspiration. “She’s very uninhibited and will try pretty much anything,” Dakota says. “Even the way she dresses — she dresses totally for herself. She risks being made fun of … by me, which I sometimes do, because I’m an older sister! But I totally admire her and think she’s very cool.”
Talking about the controversy late last year when her ad for Marc Jacobs perfume was banned in the U.K. for being too provocative, Fanning said, “If you want to read something into a perfume bottle, then I guess you can. But it’s also like, ‘Why are you making it about that, you creep?’ I love Marc and trust him, and we just laughed about it,” she shares.
