Dakota Fanning graces the latest cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine with a headline that reads, “His Best Sex Ever.”
Cosmo, which is the largest women’s magazine in the world, is taking a lot of heat for their February issue which features the then-17-year-old on the cover wearing a nightgown.
Media critics are protesting the American magazine claiming that Fanning is too young. Media expert Rachelle Firberg says, “Cosmopolitan is going overboard by putting an underage girl on its cover surrounded by such article titles, it is one thing to educate young women about sex and their bodies, but putting a young, underage girl on the cover of a magazine that had long been known to push the limits is sending the wrong message.”
The NYU freshman has been in a number of racy roles recently. The actress starred in the 2010 independent film The Runaways, which is about the early career of rocker Joan Jett. In the film, she played a very sexually precocious member of Joan’s band, the underage Cherie Currie, who performed on stage in corsets and garters and had sex on screen with a lesbian. Joan Jett was played by Kristen Stewart.
Despite the racy roles Fanning has acted in before, critics still believe it is wrong to have her in such a demure evening gown, surrounded by the sex-charged cover lines.
Amid numerous critics, Dakota Fanning, who turned 18 today (Feb. 23rd), has been known for her stellar acting career and great attitude.
