Dakota Fanning carries a cute puppy in her bag while filming scenes for her new movie, Please Stand By, in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (January 13).
The 21-year-old actress recently spoke with SheKnows about growing up a child star.
“The best part is I have this timeline of my life. I started when I was 6 so I can go back and watch one of those films, which I don’t do all the time, but I’m old enough now that it seems like I’m watching a different person so I can watch the movies without feeling embarrassed,” she dished.
Dakota added, “They’re not home movies obviously, but my life is captured on film and it’s there forever, which is scary but also cool. When I’m older or even when I’m gone, my great grandchildren can see them.”

The 17-year-old About Ray actress opened up about her future in acting and possibly directing with sister Dakota.
“I really hope that I can be an actor forever. That’s what I really want to do,” Elle confessed before adding she’d love to make a movie with her sister, where they don’t play sisters.
She added, “And I’d love to direct one day. That would be very exciting…No [on directing with Dakota]! Oh, my God, we’d get in so many arguments! We’d be like the Cohen Brothers or something… we’d be bickering all the time. I don’t know if I could do it.”

On wanting to emulate the career of Dakota: “It was like, if Dakota can do it, I can do it.”
On not talking to Dakota about acting: “No, absolutely not! I never look at her scripts. She’s doing a movie right now in Berlin; I don’t even know what it’s about.”
On her style and stealing Dakota’s clothes: “[My style] used to be hippie, bohemian, Virgin Suicides-like, but now I’m not afraid to wear pants, as long as there’s a twist. I used to steal Dakota’s clothes, but one time the paparazzi got me. She called me from New York: ‘What are you doing in my clothes?’”
