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.

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!

Dakota Fanning is sharing a crazy story about her latest birthday!

The actress just celebrated her “golden birthday” – aka she turned 23 years old on February 23.

During her appearance on The Tonight Show on Friday (March 3), Dakota let host Jimmy Fallon know what went down when she and her friends headed to Atlantic City, N.J., to celebrate.

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!

Watch below.

Dakota Fanning Rings in Her 23rd With a DIY Unicorn Balloon, As One Does

Dakota Fanning Rings in Her 23rd With a DIY Unicorn Balloon, As One Does

It’s actress Dakota Fanning‘s 23rd birthday today, which means it’s her ~golden~ birthday!

Equally important is the fact that she Instagrammed a selfie with a unicorn balloon, which she DIY’ed all by herself.

How long did this take her? Did she make it with friends? Is there a sea of matching unicorn balloons out there somewhere? The world may never know.

We’ve adored Dakota ever since she showed her acting chops as the sassy, fabulous little Ray in Uptown Girls, and we can’t wait to see her in The Bell Jar next year.

May your birthday be sparkly and full of rainbows, girl.

This balloon kween (who I just made) encapsulates my birthday mood. #goldenbirthday #23onthe23rdwudup

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).”
