Dakota Fanning Was Really Not Into Her First On-Screen Kiss on 'Sweet Home Alabama'

Dakota Fanning Was Really Not Into Her First On-Screen Kiss on 'Sweet Home Alabama'

If it’s one movie that you absolutely remember Dakota Fanning in when she was young, it’s not I Am Sam or Uptown Girls — it’s Sweet Home Alabama.

The now 23-year-old actress chatted with W magazine about the mini-role she had as a young Reese Witherspoon and all about her first kiss ever for the movie — she was only 7!

“My studio teacher who was my teacher my whole life before I went to high school, she was with me on that movie and she told this story all the time,” Dakota recalls about one thing that always happened while she was filming on the set.

“In between each take we would do the kiss, right, and then I would slowly turn away and wipe my mouth off,” she revealed. “So he couldn’t see or so no one could see because I was trying to be kind but I wasn’t really into it.”

But he was a cute kid!

“It was very, you know, it was nerve-wracking,” Dakota adds of her first kiss.

Check out the scene below!

Her story involves almost ruining everything by forgetting her ID and a creepy man who sat next to her when she gambled.

Jimmy then gave Dakota a super cool birthday present!

Dakota & Elle Fanning Are First Sisters Ever Featured on Vanity Fair's Hollywood Issue!

Dakota & Elle Fanning Are First Sisters Ever Featured on Vanity Fair's Hollywood Issue!

How cool is that fact? Dakota and Elle Fanning are the first sister actresses EVER to be featured on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s annual Hollywood issue!

Dakota and Elle have been impressing everyone on the big screen since they babies and it’s only right for them to be featured along the likes of Emma Stone, Ruth Negga, Natalie Portman and more on the 2017 cover this year.

“Instrumental roles in Maleficent, as Princess Aurora, and as the exasperated daughter in Trumbo didn’t quite prep viewers for the one-two whammo of 2016’s The Neon Demon and 20th Century Women,” the mag writes of Elle‘s impact on cinema.

They add for Dakota, “Like her younger sister, Elle, Dakota looks dreamily evocative of days past, a convincing sojourner in the punk 70s (as Cherie Currie in The Runaways), the stuffily repressed Victorian era (Effie Gray), and the revolutionary 60s (Ewan McGregor’s adaptation of Philip Roth’s novel American Pastoral).”
