Dakota Fanning Graduates From High School

Doesn’t it seem like Dakota Fanning has been around since the dawn of time?

She couldn’t have possibly, though- the starlet is just now graduating from high school. Fanning’s graduation happened Monday at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, and the 17-year-old said- in an earlier quote that sounds a bit manufactured- that she was grateful to have a real “high school experience.”

“I think it was really important to have the high school experience,” she said on the Today Show last fall. ” I just think everyone always looks back on that time in their life. Who was homecoming princess and [did] the cheerleading … and all the things that go along with high school? And I wanted to have that. I’m really lucky that I found a school that allows me to do both.”

During her genuine, not at all famous schooling tenure, Fanning was a cheerleader got elected homecoming queen twice at the exclusive, private Campbell Hall private school. The actress is bound for NYU in the fall.
