Dakota Fanning Tells 'Elle Canada' She's Scared Of Doing Live Theatre

Dakota Fanning takes over the October 2016 cover of Elle Canada.

The 22-year-old American Pastoral actress opened up about growing up in front of the camera, the transition from child star and more. Check it:

On growing up in front of the camera: “I don’t think it’s had much of an effect. I think of myself as a confident person. Of course, everyone has things they wish they could change—anyone who says they don’t is a big liar! But when you’re acting, if you’re doing it for the right reasons, it’s about so much more than the way you look.”

On something that shakes her confidence: “God, that’s hard! [Silence] Well, sometimes I’m quite scared of public speaking, so I have to put on a brave face for that. Anything that’s live…which brings me to the fact that I’ve never done theatre. It’s because I’m scared of it, which is probably why I should do it. And I will one day—I just want it to be the right thing. But I think that it will really throw me for a loop. I paused before I answered because I don’t like doing things that shake my confidence.”

On her transition from child to adult actress: “There was a period when it felt like people weren’t going to let me grow up. And for a minute, I thought, ‘I can either let this define my life and be about trying to prove something to people, or I can forget about it and just let it happen natur­ally, and people can get on the train or not.’ I guess I could have gone and done bad things to prove I’m old enough to do them, but I didn’t need to do that. I started at six and now I’m almost 23—that’s a couple of lifetimes!”

Dakota is also pictured below, running errands around New York City on Tuesday (September 27).
