A source says that the two sisters, who rarely appear in public together, have grown apart and live in different coasts.
Dakota Fanning and her sister Elle Fanning, who are busy building their respective career in the entertainment industry, reportedly have grown apart. Dakota lives in New York City while Elle calls Los Angeles her home. The two additionally are rarely seen being together.
"They have something of a peace treaty, in the sense that Elle gets L.A. to herself, while Dakota is much happier in New York. Dakota is living off of the fortune she made as a child actor, instead of chasing after every big job under the sun," a source told Radar Online.
"Elle is the more ambitious one. Dakota is the one who could quit acting to start a band at the drop of a hat. Dakota is completely unimpressed with the red carpet culture in Hollywood, while Elle totally worships it," the source explained of the two sisters.
Dakota started her career as a child actress. She got popular for her role in "I Am Sam" alongside Sean Penn. She was only seven years old when she was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for the 2001 movie. The 19-year-old actress has other movies such as "War of the Worlds" starring Tom Cruise and "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" in her credits.
Elle, meanwhile, is famous for her roles in "Daddy Day Care", "Super 8" and "We Bought a Zoo". Next year, the 14-year-old actress can be seen in "Maleficent" alongside Angelina Jolie and three other movies.
A source recently told Star magazine, "They became firm friends on the set of 'Maleficent', and Angie's decided to take Elle under her wing. In this film, Elle really comes into her own and they're looking for another project to develop together." The fantasy movie will be released on May 30.
