Recently, Very Good Girls writer-director Naomi Foner interviewed Dakota and asked if having the same career as sister Elle has made them closer.

Elle and I really don’t talk about acting very much,” Dakota told her in the New York Daily News interview. “I don’t know if that will change as we get older. In terms of understanding what she’s doing with her life, we both have an understanding [of filmmaking] that not many people have. But I don’t think it’s made us closer. Our closeness has come from just being sisters.”

Dakota Fanning Feels Like People Think They Own Her

Dakota Fanning Feels Like People Think They Own Her

Dakota Fanning and her boyfriend Jamie Strachan go for a walk around the Soho neighborhood in New York City on Thursday (July 3).

The 20-year-old actress recently talked to Town & Country magazine about how people sometimes act like they own her, but she doesn’t like it.

“Because people saw me grow up, there’s this weird sort of ownership that they feel for me and that is… difficult. Because it’s not real; it’s in their minds. People don’t know me as much as they think they do,” Dakota said. “I’ll be walking down the street and someone will say hello, and I’ll go, ‘Oh, hi!’ I’ll think I must know this person if they said hello, but then you realize, you don’t know them.”

Dakota Fanning: I Was An Exceptionally Mature Child

Dakota Fanning: I Was An Exceptionally Mature Child

Dakota Fanning shows off her baby blue eyes on the cover of Town & Country magazine’s August 2014 issue, on newsstands July 8.

Here’s what the 20-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her mother’s sacrifice: “[My mother] realized I had the potential to do things that were bigger than the life she knew. And she recognized that in Elle, too. When she made that initial move with me to L.A., she completely gave up her own dreams and started over in a place she never imagined living. I mean, Los Angeles, to a person from 20 minutes southeast of Atlanta, might as well be Africa.”

On getting into showbiz so young: “It’s hard to explain to someone who didn’t know me as a child. But even before I started working – when I was two, three, four, five – I was an exceptionally mature child. I just was. And my mom and I were able to have conversations like, ‘Do you want to go to California and go to auditions for commercials and TV shows? Is that something you want to do?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, let’s give it a try.’”

On privacy: “I’m just never going to parade my personal life. If you choose to not do it, it’s not hard to not do it… Any part of an artistic business is made better by there being a little mystery. That’s what movies are about.”
