Dakota Fanning started NYU this fall — but she’s not living like your regular freshman. Instead of living in the dorms on campus, the “Twilight” star is renting out a two-bedroom, two-bathoom, $8,400/month apartment. Not too shabby, right?
The place boasts a kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, soaking tub and a ton of windows. The building also has a 24-hour doorman and sundeck with panoramic views of the city. No word on if she’s got a roomie, but the building reportedly has at least one other famous tenant: John Mayer.

Dakota, the elder Fanning, is the ripe old age of 17, and so we’re somewhat less troubled by her meteoric rise into the sweet embrace of fashion’s bosom. But younger sister Elle Fanning is only 13 years old. And she looks it!
So what, you say? Keep reading »
“When you start out young, people get really attached to who you are at 6 years old. I hope that ‘The Runaways’ was kind of a moment to be like, ‘You know, I’m not that young little girl anymore, but I’m still not all grown up, either.’ … [My first onscreen kiss] is out of the way, and it was with my friend and a girl—no pressure. It was not something Cherie [Currie] and Joan [Jett] ever really spoke about, and that’s how it was filmed—as not that big of a deal.”
