Dakota Fanning Addresses Her Insecurities About Being 'Just' an Actor

Dakota Fanning Addresses Her Insecurities About Being 'Just' an Actor

Dakota Fanning looks stunning on the cover of Marie Claire‘s January 2018 issue, which is out on Friday (December 8).

Here’s what the 23-year-old actress had to say:

On going off the rails: “It always cracks me up when people talk about how I haven’t gone off the rails – which I have not, by any means – but you know, I’m a normal person. I love a party and I love having people over for any occasion since I’ve had my own apartment in New York. I’m always like, ‘You can stay with me!’ I don’t cook, but I make cocktails. I make a good margarita.”

On being ‘just’ being an actor: “I do have moments where I feel like nowadays being just an actor isn’t enough. I was listening to Anna Faris Is Unqualified, which I love, and I was like, [in a paranoid whisper] ‘She’s an actor. Now she has a podcast… am I supposed to get a podcast?!’ It used to be that if you were an actor and you did certain things, it was cheesy, but things are changing so much. I like that the lines are blurred and you’re allowed to do those things. I just don’t know if I have anything I would feel authentic doing yet, because we can tell when it’s not real, right? When somebody doesn’t actually believe in what they’re doing?”

On equality: “Seeing my mom be a stay-at-home mom, I saw the strength in that; in choosing to dedicate her life to being the best mom… I remember promoting The Runaways and being asked, “Have you ever been told you couldn’t do something because you were a girl?” And I was like, ‘No, I haven’t’ and I realised that in growing up with very strong women, I [always had] the feeling there was nothing I couldn’t do.”

Elle Fanning's Sister Dakota Always Makes Fun Of Her For Having This Clothing Item

Elle Fanning's Sister Dakota Always Makes Fun Of Her For Having This Clothing Item

Oh, sisters…

Dakota Fanning will never let Elle Fanning live down the fact that she still sleeps in pajamas that she actually made when she was younger.

“I have these pajamas that my sister completely makes fun of,” Elle shared with PeopleStyle. “She was like, ‘We are going to burn these’ because I’ve worn them since I was little.”

But she just can’t burn them — they’re very special to her.

“They’re oversized Dr. Seuss boxers and this Gap red shirt. I think it was for a charity my sister had done with Bono,” Elle shared.

She adds, “I cut the whole neck out and made it bigger….It was my designer phase of wanting to cut my clothes and make them unique. They go with me everywhere—those pajamas are staying with me for my entire life…or until they disintegrate.”

Elle is pictured out and about in Cannes, before and after walking the red carpet for the opening ceremonies this week.
