Dakota Fanning wanted the social and classroom experience of high school

Dakota Fanning has a new interview with the, where she talks about her career, going to school, and transitioning into adult roles.

When talking about going to high school, she says, “'I wanted the social part of it and the classroom experience,’ she says, “It turned out to be very much the quintessential high-school experience, and I met some of the most important people of my life during that time.”

She also credits staying normal and grounded to her parents, saying, '”My mom played tennis for, like, six hours a day and went to college on a tennis scholarship, because that was the way she could go to school. So they instilled in me the idea that you have to work hard for the things you want in life and never complain.  I’m very grateful for that.’

She talks about growing up, saying, “I think it’s important not to grow up in life too fast and not to grow up on screen too fast.  And that can be difficult, because sometimes who you are and the characters you play don’t match up. Like, I found that when I was 12 the characters I responded to were emotional and sometimes dark, and I had to be true to that… This is what I want to do for the rest of my life, so I want to do it right.”
