Dakota Fanning: Tennis Dreams Went Down the Drain

Dakota Fanning: Tennis Dreams Went Down the Drain

Dakota Fanning keeps it cute and simple in a black dress as she leaves a photo shoot in North Hollywood, Calif., on Monday afternoon (June 21).

The 16-year-old actress stopped off at The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night to chat about Eclipse, Father’s Day and her love for tennis.

Dakota shared about her short-lived tennis career, “I came to my mom one day and I was like, I really like the outfits, the outfits I get to wear, but it’s just too hot for me to play tennis, and I didn’t want to play anymore.”

But then came soccer, which ended after Dakota accidentally kicked the ball into her team’s net. “We had to figure something else out, so I starred in I Am Sam at 6, so that had to do.”
