Listen up Miley Cryrus and Ashley Greene— unlike you gals, Dakota knows her fans are looking up to her and she isn’t afraid to be a role model!
Dakota Fanning, how do you do it? At 15-years-old most teens are still awkward, but you look edgy and super-chic in the latest issue of V magazine, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. And, unlike other girls in Hollywood, Dakota doesn’t act out like a rebellious teen— Miley Cyrus and Ashley Greene could both learn a thing or two from young Dakota! Dakota knows that girls look up to her and says, “I think that when you’re in the public eye, you automatically become a role model, because people are reading about you and looking at pictures of stuff you’ve done. So I definitely think you have to make good choices. But, you know, no one’s perfect, everyone makes mistakes. I have made mistakes and I will make mistakes. I’m only human.” It looks like we can add smart and down-to-earth to Dakota’s list of qualities— which already includes sweet and successful!
