Dakota Fanning Updates Us on Her Relationship Status!

Dakota Fanning is opening up about her dating life and how she is “happily not single” right now!

The 23-year-old actress chatted with Vogue Australia for a cover story featured in the mag’s February 2018 issue. Here is what she had to share with the mag:

On dating: Dakota says she’s “happily not single”, but not dating “a public person.”"I’ve always sort of dated somebody a little bit removed… I see the whirlwind of [famous] people dating [famous] people and it just looks so intense.” (If you didn’t know, Dakota is dating Henry Frye right now)

On navigating the rocky path of cliches that many child actors trip over: “I still don’t know how to answer this. I think because I’ve always maintained that I never felt that I was entitled to anything because I did movies. I guess that comes from my mum. It took her years and years to admit that we lived in Los Angeles… I just never wanted to make too big of a mistake that jeopardized what I love doing. There can be other reasons that it goes away – nothing is ever guaranteed. But, I never wanted it to be taken away from me because I had made a really bad decision, you know? And I’m also really scared of my mum and didn’t want to get in trouble or disappoint anybody.”

On staying sane despite playing tough characters: “[There's] a boundary, and I’ve always said or thought this in the back of my mind: maybe it’s because I started when I was younger, but it’s all make-believe. It’s like: ‘Oh, I’m going to go pretend to do this.’ As I’ve gotten older, the boundaries have always been clear and that’s stayed with me. So I still am just like: ‘Oh, I pretended that happened to me.’ It’s also important to remember that just because you acted something doesn’t make you actually know what it’s like.”
