Dakota Fanning takes over the cover of Nylon‘s Young Hollywood issue for May 2015.
The 21-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about living in New York City, younger sister Elle and why she isn’t on social media. Check it:
On little sister Elle following in her footsteps: “It started out very naturally. She played a younger me [in films such as I Am Sam], so it was like, ‘Oh yeah, it makes sense.’”
On choosing not to be on social media: “I feel like if I did it, I’d start to measure my experiences by how good of an Instagram it’s going to turn into,” she says. “And I don’t want to be living my life trying to see it all in a square, trying to get a photo.”
On her studies: “I’ve done a lot of independent studies in school on old Hollywood, because I think there was something really special then that can never be replicated because of the time that we live in, and technology. I kind of long for when there was more mystery to how movies were made. Now everyone’s goal is to know everything about everything.”
Dakota is also pictured below around New York City before attending the IWC Schaffhausen’s 3rd Annual “For the Love of Cinema” Dinner on Thursday (April 16), and with co-star Theo James at the premiere of their film Franny during the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.

Dakota Fanning takes advantage of the warmer weather and wears a mini skirt while out and about in New York City on Thursday afternoon (April 2).
Just earlier in the week, the 21-year-old actress stepped out for the premiere of her new film, Effie Gray…and some of the reviews aren’t too good.
“That just leaves Fanning at the center of the movie, looking understandably but uninterestingly sad. She’s sad at home, she’s sad when she travels to Venice with her neglectful husband, and she’s slightly less sad in the presence of Millais, as she gins up the courage to change her life. Fanning lets this sadness play out on her face, rather than through dramatic outbursts, but her face doesn’t offer much to read; her subtlety looks a lot like blankness,” the AV Club writes.
Effie Gray is out in limited theaters now.

Alyson Stoner goes truly make up free in this new shot from Zooey Magazine‘s As We Are portrait series.
The 21-year-old actress opened up about being the “second choice” to Dakota Fanning, who she shared an agent with when she was younger.
“My agent knew that I would make her less money. She would offer Dakota’s name first. I remember sitting in the casting agent’s office and would hear my agent on the phone talking about her lunch meeting with Dakota that day. I knew that I was the second fiddle…the second choice,” she shared.
Alyson added, “That immediately makes you criticize parts about yourself; it makes you keep trying to figure out what takes you out of the running before the casting agents even know you. It made me wonder why I was void of chance. I kind of wrestled against that with myself. I think for some people, it destroys them in the industry and in life. For others, they see that there is some injustice and proceed to rise above it. Hopefully the people who do rise above it, do it to for themselves to set an example for others and then they seek ways to ripple that effect to the rest of the community.”

Dakota Fanning, Freida Pinto, and Meryl Streep strike a pose as they arrive at the screening for India’s Daughter held at the Baruch College on Monday (March 9) in New York City.
The three ladies got together to light about a dozen candles honoring the documentary, which is about a medical student who died in India after being gang-raped on a bus in 2012.
“Tonight we light these candles to honor the value and the work of Jyoti Singh‘s short, promising life,” Meryl said at the event (via ChicagoTribune). “She was India’s daughter. Tonight she’s our daughter too.”
“Ultimately, this is a film that needs to go out. This is not a shame-India documentary,” Freida continued. “This is not just an India problem; this is a problem that inflicts almost every country in the world. There’s not a single country in 2015 that is free of sexual violence against women.”
Also pictured: Dakota spotted chatting on her cellphone while out and about in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City.
