Along with the companionship her beau, Dakota Fanning stepped out in New York City on Thursday (July 3).

The “War of the Worlds” beauty rocked a casual sundress as she shared a laugh with boyfriend Jamie Strachan and made her way through Soho.

As previously reported by GossipCenter, Miss Fanning opened up about her childhood in the latest issue of Town & Country.

"Because people saw me grow up, there’s this weird sort of ownership that they feel for me and that is... difficult. Because it’s not real; it’s in their minds. People don’t know me as much as they think they do," the 20-year-old explained. "I’ll be walking down the street and someone will say hello, and I’ll go, ‘Oh, hi!’ I’ll think I must know this person if they said hello, but then you realize, you don’t know them."
