Okay, this one may seem a bit premature since the 18-year-old actress only became an adult this year, but Dakota’s had a good head on her shoulders seemingly since birth. Whether Fanning wholly dodges the perils and pitfalls of the child star curse is still to be seen, but the odds are in the smart, talented young actress’s favor. Honestly, do you really think we’ll ever get a floosy up-skirt picture from Ms. Fanning? Exactly. Dakota’s been working consistently since she was a chipmunk-cheeked six-year-old, but even then, the world knew this wasn’t your run-of-the-mill child star—she snagged a Screen Actors Guild Award when she was only seven for her astounding work in I Am Sam and won multiple Critics Choice Awards by the time she was twelve (check out her adorably precocious acceptance speech!) We see big things in this blonde’s future, and none of them thankfully involve a mug shot!
