Dakota Fanning Tells 'Elle Canada' She's Scared Of Doing Live Theatre

Dakota Fanning Tells 'Elle Canada' She's Scared Of Doing Live Theatre

Dakota Fanning takes over the October 2016 cover of Elle Canada.

The 22-year-old American Pastoral actress opened up about growing up in front of the camera, the transition from child star and more. Check it:

On growing up in front of the camera: “I don’t think it’s had much of an effect. I think of myself as a confident person. Of course, everyone has things they wish they could change—anyone who says they don’t is a big liar! But when you’re acting, if you’re doing it for the right reasons, it’s about so much more than the way you look.”

On something that shakes her confidence: “God, that’s hard! [Silence] Well, sometimes I’m quite scared of public speaking, so I have to put on a brave face for that. Anything that’s live…which brings me to the fact that I’ve never done theatre. It’s because I’m scared of it, which is probably why I should do it. And I will one day—I just want it to be the right thing. But I think that it will really throw me for a loop. I paused before I answered because I don’t like doing things that shake my confidence.”

On her transition from child to adult actress: “There was a period when it felt like people weren’t going to let me grow up. And for a minute, I thought, ‘I can either let this define my life and be about trying to prove something to people, or I can forget about it and just let it happen natur­ally, and people can get on the train or not.’ I guess I could have gone and done bad things to prove I’m old enough to do them, but I didn’t need to do that. I started at six and now I’m almost 23—that’s a couple of lifetimes!”

Dakota is also pictured below, running errands around New York City on Tuesday (September 27).
