If you needed further proof that Dakota Fanning is all grown up, all you have to do is see her new movie Very Good Girls. The 20-year-old actress stars alongside Elizabeth Olsen and Boyd Holbrook in the coming-of-age film about two teenagers who make a pact to lose their virginity before leaving for college.
We were lucky enough to see Very Good Girls a little bit early, and while we LOVED it, we had some pretty pressing questions after the movie ended. E.g.: How the heck did she psyche herself up enough to run naked on the beach?! And what better way to get answers to those questions than to have a Q&A with Dakota herself!

In “Very Good Girls,” opening Friday, Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen play Brooklyn teens eager to lose their virginity before college. Their mutual infatuation with a local guy (Boyd Holbrook) creates bad decisions all around.
In real life, Fanning, 20, seems to always do things right — ever since co-starring, as a kid, opposite Sean Penn in “I Am Sam” (2001), Denzel Washington in “Man on Fire” (2004) and Tom Cruise in “War of the Worlds” (2005).
“Very Good Girls” was written and directed by Oscar-nominated writer Naomi Foner (who’s also Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s mom). She and Fanning interviewed each other in this Daily News exclusive.

Dakota Fanning captured the world’s attention as Sean Penn’s bright-eyed daughter Lucy in the 2001 film “I Am Sam.” Since then, the 20-year-old has nabbed role after role, transitioning from child actress to full-blown movie star.
Her latest project, “Very Good Girls,” written and directed by Naomi Foner (mother to Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal), tells the coming-of-age story of two teenage girls who make a pact to lose their virginity before leaving for college. Elizabeth Olsen co-stars in the film, which opens in theaters as a limited release on July 25.
Fanning spoke with HuffPost Entertainment about her new movie, her relationship with Olsen and growing up in the Hollywood spotlight.
