Dakota Fanning will appear nude for a scene in her upcoming film Very Good Girls, making it clear that she’s no longer the little girl of I Am Sam and Man on Fire.

The film, Very Good Girls, will also star Elizabeth Olsen, 23, and Boyd Holbrook, 31. The three are engaged in a love triangle that emerges in a post-high school rush to lose their virginity. On doing her first love scene, "Yeah, well, I've never done that before and I'm very newly allowed to do that," Fanning, 19, told MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival. "I was newly 18, so yeah, it was, it's kind of a sensitive thing, but it's a part of life."

Holbrook, on the other end of Fanning’s love scene in Very Good Girls, said, “As in life it's not always so perfect and glossy and seamless. It's quite awkward sometimes, especially with that. This film's about its going into life, first sexual experience, so it's all about the environment and not taking it too serious."

This is not the first time that Fanning will be making an effort to undo the image of the precocious little girl she built up as a child actor. In June of 2011, she appeared in ads for Marc Jacobs perfume Oh, Lola! that were deemed inappropriate in the UK. A year prior, she starred alongside Kristen Stewart in The Runaways where the two shared an onscreen kiss, and also used drugs and crude language.
