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).”
We’re so excited for Dakota Fanning‘s new project because we’ll be able to watch it from the comfort of home!
The 22-year-old actress is heading back to television for her first regular role on a series since 2002, when she was just seven. She is set to star on the new TNT show The Alienist.
“The Alienist centers on three investigators working together to solve a series of murders in 1896 New York,” according to TV Line.
Dakota will be playing “a young NYPD secretary who’s determined to become the department’s first female detective.” Luke Evans is playing a newspaper reporter while Daniel Bruhl will play a criminal psychologist, who is also known as the alienist.
Dakota has previously starred in the Syfy series Taken back in 2002 and she appeared in one episode of Friends in 2004. This will be her first foray into television since then!
The exhibit features photography from the late Anton, and is described as “experimental, provocative and surrealist.” It will contain 40 images and proceeds from print sales will benefit the Anton Yelchin Foundation, according to Access Hollywood.
Antonpassed away this past June after a freak accident caused his Jeep to roll down his driveway and crush him against a gate.
