Dakota Fanning Talks Her First Nude Scene


“No one’s ever comfortable [doing love scenes].”[HP]

Remember your 18th birthday? How you got together with your best friends and ate too much pazooki before going home and sipping shots from your dad’s (un)locked liquor cabinet? Well, Dakota Fanning is not you.

The famously precocious child actor has turned 18 and she celebrated it by doing her first nude scene in the movie Very Good Girls. The film, which played last week at the Sundance Film Festival, details the quest of two teenage girls (Fanning and Elizabeth Olson) who embark upon a quest to lose their virginity before falling for the same guy.

Fanning says rather nonchalantly about her nude scene, “I’ve never done that before and I’m very newly allowed to do that. I was newly 18, so yeah, it was, it’s kind of a sensitive thing, but it’s a part of life.”

Well, no one ever said nudity was easy, especially when everyone thinks of you as the adorable kid from I Am Sam.
