Dakota Fanning: (when asked if she regrets not having a normal life) No. What is "normal," anyway? I don't want to be normal. This is my childhood. I've been to Australia, traveled, and learned about different cultures. Some people never leave the country in their entire lifetime. My job has opened my mind up and enriched my childhood. I have friends like anyone else, and I go shopping at the mall and do everything everyone else does.
