Dakota Fanning is Not Interested in Joining the Instagram Crowd

..and she says she's often mistaken for an Olsen sister!

A s child stars go, Dakota Fanning seems to be well grounded and relatively normal, which is always positive! In a new interview, she reveals that she’s regularly mistaken for an Olsen sister, but doesn’t even mind. She explains:

“There’s a man on my corner who thinks I’m an Olsen. He’ll yell, ‘Hey Olsen!’ at me. It’s really funny.”

While many young stars are using social media, specifically Instagram, to boost their fame, Dakota says she isn’t really interested in joining her peers because she believes it takes away from real experiences and becomes about taking the right kind of photos. She also sees it as a slight waste of time:

“I feel like if I did it, I’d start to measure my experiences by how good of an Instagram it’s going to turn into. And I don’t want to be living my life trying to see it all in a square, trying to get a photo. You have to set the photo up, you have to take the photo, you have to edit the photo, pick the right filter, format it, caption it–like, too much! There are so many more things I could be doing!”

She doesn’t even mind that many people see her as a child star, because she knows where she is personally and that’s all that counts:

“I’ve made my peace with the fact that there will be some people who, for the rest of my life, will believe I’m, like, nine years old. I have this joke that I’m literally going to be 35, married, and pregnant and people are still going to say, ‘Oh my god, you grew up so fast! I can’t believe it!’ And yeah, sometimes when you’re 21 years old and people are still saying that, you just want to rip your hair out. But I’m OK with it. I know who I am.”
