Dakota Fanning's Il Sole Night Out

Posted Wednesday April 6, 2011 6:30 AM GMT

Taking care of her hankering for Italian fare, Dakota Fanning was spotted at Il Sole in Los Angeles last night (April 5).

The “I Am Sam” actress looked snazzy in a summer straw hat along with a white top and jeans as she made her exit.

Dakota provides the voice for the lead role in the upcoming “Coraline” flick, and she explained that she sees similarities between herself and the character.

“I think we’re both very curious. I was trying to think if I saw a little door in my house would I go and open it and go through it and I think I would.”

She also noted that her gig has been a longstanding one, as the movie has taken a long time to complete.

“It definitely was. I was very young when I started and I’ve been working on this for about four years, so I definitely have grown up with Coraline.”
