Dakota Fanning celebrated her 19th birthday this week and showed new maturity and sensuality in her latest photo spread for VS magazine. The actress, so often over-sexualized as a teen, is more than ready to step into more mature roles.

They make up the spring/summer 2015 issue’s Dream team. The theme is about a new generation of ambitious and talented young women.

They “aspire as much as they inspire” and “have enough talent and beauty to make anyone envious,” the magazine says. The women talk about their experiences in their young careers and some of the hurdles they’ve faced in the male-dominated movie industry.

Fanning says she often faces typcasting because of her long career as a child actress.

“One thing that’s difficult about starting so young is that some people perceive me at six, some perceive me at 12, some perceive me at 17, and some people perceive me as I am now,” she says.

“As you get older the kinds of films you do change, and I’m comfortable with that,” she says. “I know this is something I want to do for the rest of my life. Everyone will catch up eventually.”
