Dakota Fanning, 20, believes she's managed to stay grounded despite her childhood stardom because she doesn't divulge too much information about herself. Speaking to Town & Country magazine, Dakota - who doesn't use Facebook or Twitter - said: ''I'm just never going to parade my personal life. If you choose to not do it, it's not hard to not do it ... Any part of an artistic business is made better by there being a little mystery.'' However, the blonde beauty - who has been dating model Jamie Strachan, 32, for the past year - admits she can't seem to grasp why her fans feel they have a ''weird sort of ownership'' over her.
She explained: ''People don't know me as much as they think they do. I'll be walking down the street and someone will say hello, and I'll go, 'Oh, hi!,' and I'll think I must know this person if they said hello, but then you realize, you don't know them.''
