Dakota Fanning on Runaways Kiss With Kristen Stewart on Jimmy Fallon

Must Dakota Fanning Apologize For Growing Up?

Whenever a child actor grows up, there's trouble (or at least talk of it) with going from child to adult roles. So maybe Dakota Fanning is smart to take on her sexuality before she turns 18, or even 17. Between the "Cherry Bomb" video and kissing Kristen Stewart in The Runaways, it seems nobody can believe their little Hannah Dakota Fanning is not reading American Girls Collection books between takes.

Yet we forget about Dakota's rape scene in 2007's Hounddog, which was filmed when she was 13. The only reason the kiss in The Runaways is remotely sensational is because it's with a girl, specifically Kristen Stewart. The fact that Jimmy Fallon nervously muddles through the interview did not make her look older as much as it made him look old.

She isn't a child but she isn't an adult. Let's stop sexualizing 16 year old girls.

I agree with #6 she's grown up gracefully and she is VERY talented. I cannot wait to see her take on some serious roles as she grows up.

i think that she has grown up quite gracefully....she really managed to avoid that awkward puberty stage (unlike some other child stars who fell right off the radar when they got uncute - hello haley joel osmont) anyway - i'm proud of her that she's managed to keep it up...she wasn't just a child star, she has the power to maintain

And by the way, I don't think kissing another girl is inappropriate.

She is not a kid anymore, and is not like she is doing inappropriate things in her personal life. She was ACTING.

I'll admit; it breaks my little heart sometimes! But in the same way I look at my little sister now with her sassy attitude and think to myself "damn, that's right, she's a teenager now." She shouldn't apologize though, that's just silly. Just because some people can't grasp it and move on doesn't mean she has to wait! I'm just glad and I pray that she doesn't go and turn Lindsay Lohan on us before we realize yeah ok she's not so innocent anymore.

Dakota was old enough at ages 10 and 11, to be the main character in horror movies (hide and seek), getting attacked by aliens (War of the Worlds) or playing in demanding adult themed dramas "I am Sam" (at age of 6-7!), "uptown girls", "man on fire" but its shocking to see her kiss another girl at 17. Right.
