We’re not claiming to be Dakota Fanning experts or anything. We like think of the five hours we spend each night watching her old movies and researching the veracity of her IMDB page as pleasure rather than business, but either way we know that Dakota Fanning’s much-touted nude scene in the upcoming film Very Good Girls is nowhere near her most scandalous cinematic moment. “Yeah, well, I’ve never done that before and I’m very newly allowed to do that,” the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 star told MTV about her nude sex scene. “I was newly 18, so yeah, it was, it’s kind of a sensitive thing, but it’s a part of life.” ” Added Dakota, “No one’s ever comfortable [doing love scenes].” Okay, fine, but how comfortable were we supposed to be watching Dakot’s other films?
Think about it: Dakota and Kristen Stewart smooched out for 2010’s The Runways, a scene which is allegedly historically accurate but clearly shot in a way that suggests it’s supposed to be “super-scandalous.” We can all remember the controversy surrounding Fanning’s rape scene in 2007’s Hounddog, which was shoot in 2006…when the actress was 12. Last year Dakota starred in Now Is Good, in which she played a girl dying of leukemia…while trying to lose her virginity. Compared to the rest of her oeuvre, actually, an 18-year-rold Dakota stripping down for a straight forward sex scene is downright wholesome. We’d almost go so far as to say it makes us miss the days of I Am Sam, but nothing is that strong.
