Dakota Fanning has a "cinematic crush" on J.K. Simmons.
The 'Very Good Girls' actress has admitted she is a big fan of the 'Whiplash' star - who won the Best Supporting Actor prize for the role at Sunday's (11.01.15) Golden Globes - because she loves the 60-year-old actor's performance in the drama motion picture.
Dakota - who started dating model Jamie Strachan in 2013 - said: "I just saw Whiplash, and I have a cinematic crush on J.K. Simmons. He was so good in that movie.
"He doesn't play the most likeable person in the movie. I saw it the other night and I totally relate to it."
While she is only 20 years old, Dakota has already had an illustrious film career and had her first on-screen kiss aged seven when playing a younger version of Reese Witherspoon's character Melanie in 2002 movie 'Sweet Home Alabama', but she has revealed she didn't exactly enjoy her first smooch.
Speaking in a W magazine video, she added: "My teacher, who was my teacher until I went to a regular school, she told me that in between each take I would just go to the side and just go like that, like wipe my mouth off because I was so embarrassed and didn't want to hurt his feelings."
