Dakota Fanning may be just 17-years-old, but the child star looks all grown up on the cover of the February issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine.
The NYU freshman, who was just named the ‘zine’s “Fun Fearless Female of the Year” looks gorgeous on her first Cosmo cover, in a super low-cut J. Mendel dress and flirty, understated jewelry.
In her interview with the women’s mag, the Twilight star opens up about always feeling comfortable with what God gave her.
Since I was young, I’ve always known who I was. I never really had to go through finding who I am. I’ve always felt really secure.
Nice to see a young Hollywood starlet with a good head on her shoulders – and a beautiful one too boot!

Dakota Fanning may have made her mark in Hollywood playing a sweet little girl in films like I Am Sam and Uptown Girls, but now the 17-year-old is ready to take on more adult roles – and wouldn’t you know it – she’s landed herself one in the period piece, Effie.
In the film written by Academy Award winner Emma Thompson, Fanning plays Euphemia ‘Effie’ Gray, an unhappily married 17th century woman caught up in a sordid love triangle.
So what does the former child star think of playing a more “grown up” role?
I think actually in films I’ve done more adult things in other ones than I have in this one… But this is my first time being a wife and all of that, which is actually kind of exciting and very fun.
Effie is currently in post-production and is slated to hit theaters in 2012.

W Magazine compiled a list of the best performers of the past year. The Fanning sisters, Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning, might be young, but they have both been including in this list, which includes some big names like Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Mila Kunis and Annette Benning.
16 year-old Dakota’s character in “The Runaways” and 12 year-old Elle’s character in Sofia Coppola’s “Somewhere” were described as “so real they hurt”. They brought their characters to life and made us believe they are real.
DAKOTA FANNING IN “THE RUNAWAYS”:
Dakota speaks of her high school experience: “It was important for me to go to a normal high school. I have a locker, which was a big deal. My mom had to buy me a lock and teach me how to use it. It’s the little things: Where do you go at lunch? How do you open the locker? I wanted a yearbook! Now I have a lot of signatures in my yearbook—‘Have a good summer’ and all that.”
ELLE FANNING IN “SOMEWHERE”:
Elle speaks of her obsession with Marilyn Monroe: “The first movie I really fell in love with was The Seven Year Itch. I love Marilyn Monroe. I went as her in the white dress for Halloween. I did the mole and the little cat eye.”

Actress Dakota Fanning confessed that her very first girl-on-girl kiss happened on the set of the movie “The Runaways”. The 16 year-old, who played Cherie Currie, and co-star Kristen Stewart, who played Joan Jett, were forced to kiss for one hot scene, but Dakota says it wasn’t awfully awkward.
Dakota felt comfortable with Kristen. In fact, the two have become BFFs.
Dakota said: “Was it awkward? When you feel comfortable around someone and you have no defenses up, that’s when you’re going to be the best. I feel very comfortable with Kristen.”
Dakota is also growing up and wants to be able to take more risky and mature roles. Her career has been evolving naturally and the actress has her parents’ full support.
She explained: “I wanted to do a different kind of movie because I am getting older and my parents had no doubts about the project whatsoever. I think everyone was comfortable because it’s a true story.”
“My mom was there on set the whole time. My dad saw it at the Sundance Festival and I wasn’t really nervous because I’ve been doing this since I was six, so he’s used to seeing me in different situations.
“He says that when he watched it he didn’t even think it was me because I look so different and Cherie is not who I am in real life.”

Actress Dakota Fanning is working hard on building a solid and serious acting career and she is currently living a dream after being part of two major and very successful movies this year, “The Runaways” and “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”.
However, the 16 year-old is mature enough to know that fame is ephemeral – it does not last forever – and her career could just “end tomorrow”. We doubt it. Dakota is a super talented actress, but we understand what she is trying to say.
“I know this is what I want to do for the rest of my life but I think that everything can end tomorrow,” Dakota confessed. “You have to live your life for the moment and not take it for granted. I don’t think you ever feel completely secure.”
Dakota also admits that she doesn’t know how to do anything else other than act. And, finally, she confessed she would love to work with actress Jodie Foster. Just ask Kristen Stewart! Kristen played Jodie’s daughter in the 2002 thriller “Panic Room”.
Dakota said, “I’d love to work with Jodie Foster. I really admire her, her career and what she’s done. I can only hope to be just a little bit of how great she is.”
We wish Dakota all the luck in the world. She totally deserves it and much more. There’s definitely an Oscar in her future.
