That’s right. Your name is Hannah, not Dakota. I guess Hannah Fanning didn’t sound very “Hollywood” so now you go by Dakota Fanning. I guess it’s more hip. (and your actress sister, Elle, is really named Mary?)
You’re 17 today. Now you can (legally) go see all the rated-R movies that you’ve been in!
Now Hannah, or Dakota, or Ms Fanning, or whatever, you’re a child actress that I believe will transition into adult roles very well--like Jodie Foster or Leonardo DiCaprio. Please be good. Don’t disappoint me, dear. I don’t ever want to hear that you turned out like child actors like Lindsay Lohan or the late Gary Coleman. Grow up to be one of the “good” people in
. Or better yet, stay little and cute and never grow up at all! Hollywood
Happy 17th Birthday!Regards, Mrs Love
