Speaking of former child stars, perhaps we could look at these pics of Dakota Fanning
from the December 2012 edition of UK's Instyle magazine and figure out if the 18-year old actress is still considered to be a child star or if we can tack the "former" part onto it now. I still think of her as the little girl who soothed the "don't go full-retard"ed Sean Penn in I AM SAM and I'm sure that there are others of you who think of her from a variety of other movies where she shrieked and acted more grown-up than most Hollywood adults (for the record, can I be a total bitch and just say that Elle Fanning is the better actress of the two? It's been acceptable to make that statement about Elisabeth Olsen over her sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley) do. Seeing her dressed up is great and all but after seeing many shots of her in a more natural habitat (on set for filming), I can clearly discern that these have been heavily altered to make her look less... well, less "Dakota Fanning." Perhaps that only makes sense to me, but I'm used to being alone on a lot of my opinions.
