Dakota Fanning: Hollywood's most powerful actress?

No, really. In this week's Entertainment Weekly, senior writer Karen Valby crunched the numbers and discovered that, since her 2001 debut, the now 11-year-old Dakota Fanning may have become the top female box office draw in Hollywood. In her four-year career, Fanning's films have grossed $647 million, compared to $586 million for Julia Roberts, $497 million for Nicole Kidman, $338 million for Reese Witherspoon, and $295 million for Sandra Bullock over the same period. (Take out Tomcats and Sweet Home Alabama, in which Fanning had cameos, and her seven-film total is still an impressive $513 milion.) The preternaturally mature, scary-eyed moppet takes her box office drawing power in stride, telling Valby: ''I don't think that's really for me to worry about, but it's exciting when people tell you that they really like a movie, because that's what we strive for.'' Don't worry that Fanning's success will turn her into a diva; at the War of the Worlds junket, she told me she doesn't even get an allowance.

She's really good IMHO, but it's almost scary when she talks. It's like there's an adult trapped in a kid's body.

She is a good actress and seems to be a very intelligent and well put together kid, in interviews she is nothing but polite and sweet.

I like her films too.

Indeed, she is what every actor/actress should be/have been.
