Taylor Momsen And Dakota Fanning: A College Admissions Essay

by Chiara Atik · January 15, 2010

Dakota Fanning and Taylor Momsen are both sixteen (well, technically Fanning is a month away from that sweet 16 bday), which means it's time to start thinking of college applications. We know they're both super busy being teenage celebrities, so we thought we'd help them out by putting together a photo montage for admissions boards to peruse. Don't worry, girls: your educational future is safe in our hands.


All the starlets need to do now is fill in the blank that best applies to them!

Dear Esteemed Dean Of Admissions of (Harvard/University of Phoenix),

Ever since I was a little girl, I have dreamed of a (Harvard/University of Phoenix) education, where I'd love to pursue a major in (neuroscience/communications). I think I would be a good candidate for your esteemed institution, as the creativity, work ethic, and dedication necessary to survive (four/two) years at college have been attributes I've had my entire life.

I was thrust into the public eye at a tender age, when I made my debut in (I Am Sam/The Grinch Who Stole Christmas). As a child, I just wanted to act. Little did I know the attention garnered from being precocious and blond would last well into my teens.

Dealing with the paparazzi has been my greatest adversity. It's hard enough being a teen without having someone take your picture when you are wearing no (make-up/pants).

Even though I am young, I have a full-time career which calls for me to make frequent red-carpet appearances. Because I know I am a role model for countless young women, I always do my best to look (demure/as slutty as possible), because I know my look will inspire them to do the same.

When I'm not at work, I'm just a regular teen. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with friends...

Channeling 80s rockers...

And of course, like all girls of my generation, I'm obsessed with vampires; I even got to (play one in/dress like one at the premiere of) Twilight!

In terms of extra-curricular activities, I enjoy (high school dances, football games)

And music...

I would include a personal statement, but as you might expect, am much too busy (filming a movie/promoting perfume).

I certainly have a lot to do if I'm going to (win an Oscar/catch up to Leighton Meester) before I (turn thirty/overdose)!

Looking forward to Fall of 2011!
