Pop Sugar – In our Q&A series Last Call, we get down to the bottom of every last thing with some of our favorite celebs — from the last thing they texted to the last thing they do before bed. This week, actress Dakota Fanning takes our call.
Dakota Fanning has not only starred in some of our all-time favorite films throughout the years — from Uptown Girls to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood — but she’s also a children’s advocate, most recently partnering with Panda Cares to support underserved youth in health and education. Read on to learn more about Dakota as she chats about the last book she read, the last thing she took home from set, and more!
POPSUGAR: What’s the last thing you did for wellness or self-care?
Dakota: “I take a bath every night without fail. I look forward to it all day long.”

PS: What’s the last thing you texted?
Dakota: “Chatting with my best friend about her new baby, who happens to be my goddaughter!”

PS: What’s the last thing you ordered online?
Dakota: “Some new plain white tees. Can never have too many.”

PS: What’s the last thing you do before going to bed?
Dakota: “I like to fall asleep to the TV, not the best habit according to some, but I find the noise comforting. I hate being the last person to fall asleep, so I think the noise makes me feel like I have company. I pick a good show to watch and settle in.”

PS: What’s the last photo on your camera roll?
Dakota: “A picture of my aforementioned goddaughter, Poppy.”

PS: What’s the last book you read?
“I just did a surprise virtual reading of a great children’s book “All Are Welcome” for kids at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and The Boys and Girls Club of America. The surprise virtual reading was part of Panda Cares Day, where Panda Express is donating 88,000 children’s books and celebrating the opening of the eighth Panda Cares Center of Hope at C.M.N Hospitals. These centers are where kids can heal through specially curated programs, like art therapy.”

PS: What’s the last thing you took home from a set?
Dakota: “My character Sara Howard on both The Alienist and The Alienist: Angel of Darkness wears a signet ring, and I got to keep that when we finished filming last October.”

PS: What was the last song you sang in the shower?
Dakota: “I’m not a shower singer, but I am an “in the car” singer. I like to blast LCD Sound system when I’m driving.”

PS: What’s the last spontaneous thing you’ve done?
Dakota: “Quarantine has made it difficult to be spontaneous! Still contemplating a road trip of some sort. Stay tuned…”

Deadline – The TCA panel for The Alienist: Angel of Darkness came right before the two-part season finale on Sunday and even though showrunner Stuart Carolan and stars Daniel Brühl and Dakota Fanning remained tight-lipped on what we could expect for the ending of season 2, they did give us insight in how it was like revisiting these characters in a new story. In particular, Fanning talked about her character Sara and how it reflects the movement of female empowerment.
In the new season, Sara has opened her own detective agency and has employed women who she is mentoring. “In The Alienist, we saw her as the first female to hold a position at the New York Police Department, and we saw her wanting more,” said Fanning. “Right away in this new season, we see that… she has opened her own business and is struggling to be taken seriously as a female detective and constantly discovering and rediscovering what it means to be a modern woman 1897, the choices that women were and still are forced to make and the pressures of having a career, family and what that all means. We see her all season grappling with that.”
As Fanning said, the second season finds Sara starting her own detective agency as she reunites with Dr. Kreizler (Brühl) and New York Times reporter John Moore (Luke Evans, who was unable to make the panel due to filming in Australia) as they attempt to find Ana Linares, the kidnapped infant daughter of the Spanish Consular. As we come closer to the end of season two, audiences will be clamoring for the story to continue with a third. Carolan had a quick answer for that.
“We need to wait for Caleb Carr to write a third book,” said Carolan. “My understanding is that he is writing a third book so you just have to wait and see.”

People – It’s wine time for celeb sisters Dakota and Elle Fanning!
On Sunday, the duo took part in TikTok’s popular #WineChallenge while drinking Cameron Diaz’s new wine brand, Avaline.
Dakota shared the video on her Instagram, which showed Elle holding the base of a half-filled wine glass between her teeth while slowly leaning backward onto Dakota so that the older sister could successfully drink the wine from behind her.
The actresses were successful in completing the challenge, both cheering after Dakota gulped down the mouthful of wine.
They both received some praise from their famous friends. Ashley Benson called the video “genius,” while Selma Blair added, “This is wonderful. Much Love.”
“Mad skillzz,” Lena Dunham also wrote.
Dakota and Elle’s version of the challenge came just a couple of days after Diaz posted her own video while promoting her new wine.
