Dakota Fanning’s Perfume Ad Banned in the UK

You don’t normally think of the words “Dakota Fanning” and “scandal” in the same sentence — unless you count the time that Kathy Griffin made an inappropriate (but hilarious!) rehab joke about the then child star on the red carpet at the 2005 Golden Globes, and later had to apologize.
