Dakota ‘I Don’t Want To Be Normal.’

Internationally acclaimed actress Dakota Fanning is glad she didn’t have a normal childhood. Dakota, who has starred alongside Sean Penn, Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts, declared she has learned more from her movie experiences than she would have as an ordinary schoolgirl:

‘I don’t want to be normal. This is my childhood. I’ve been to Australia, traveled and learned about different cultures, some people never leave the country in their entire lifetime. My job has opened my mind up and enriched my childhood.’

    shut the fuck up. stupid 12 year olds ha! dakotas the shitt. amazing actress

    im definitley not 12. try 16.

    and i never said shes a bad actress. i said my parents hate her. in case you didnt notice, shes kinda hypocritical. she goes into public school and joins the cheerleading team, then says she doesnt wanna be normal?

    if someone like her wants to be not normal, they shouldnt be in public school. they should get a tutor.

    and shes way to grown up for a 14 year old. she acts older then ME. its sad, because she hasn’t gotten to be a kid. but then again, i guess she doesnt wanna ever be a kid, or a teen, because she doesnt wanna be normal.

  • Maddie

    She’s a great actress but she is probably really stuck up. That’s what you get when you put your children in huge blockbuster movies when there young.

    whoopdee doo for you Dakota.

    So ya’ll want a 14 year old to be fat? Let her grow into her body. You people are really dumb to think a 14 year old is too skinny.

  • Clarise

    Lol people like you make me laugh. She’s worked with Sean Penn, Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts. She is definitely NOT normal, and not in a bad way either. Being skinny doesnt automatically make you anorexic, and you are really immature to think that way. Wow, so all cheerleaders are posers? Grow the fuck up, and get over yourself.

    Dakota is a hundred times more famous than you will ever be.

    And she’s not as bitter and jealous as you either.

    The issue is that most of the kids in US are VERY FAT and just because she isn’t everyone thinks she’s sick, I’m18 and thin and when I was 14 like her I was as skinny as her and I’m always eating pizza, cheeseburgers, waffle’s… You guys don’t understand that her being skinny it’s genetic!

    “I don’t want to be normal. I’ve been to Australia. Im different. I’m a CHEERLEADER. I’m Dakota Fanning, and I’m anorexic!”

    Good for you, Dakota. Dare to be different! Dare to be…an anorexic cheerleader! Wait…dealing with anorexia? That’s not ‘different’, that’s bad. And being a cheerleader? Hmm, something tells me this girl’s just a stuck-up hypocritical poser.

    So much respect to her for not complaining about the job she has, it’s like a never ending boo-hoo fest with celebs and being ‘normal.’ Makes it hard to relate to them.
