In the latest issue of Town & Country, Dakota Fanning reveals she has split from her British model boyfriend of two years, Jamie Strachan.
Fanning, 22, would not elaborate on why they went their separate ways: “I’m a very private person.”
But she did explain that the dating life isn’t really for her: “The way I prefer to meet someone is through a friend… I find dates, in general, horrific. We have to sit there and ask these questions and pretend to eat a meal, and it just feels so stiff.”
The actress and Strachan were first spotted holding hands in New York City in September 2013.
Fanning also talked about whether she cares what people think of her: “I’ve been thinking lately about how much do I care what other people’s preconceived notions of me are. They definitely exist. They always will, to an extent, because I’ve been acting for 16 years already and I’m 22.”
Fanning has meanwhile kept busy, recently starring in “American Pastoral” – which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.
