dakota fanning may 2011 gi Dakota Fanning has an NYU email address, but what about a dorm room?According to a headline on the NYU Local — New York University’s student blogDakota Fanning is DEFINITELY an NYU Freshman.

While goofing around with the university’s gmail system, the intrepid student reporters discovered one Hannah Dakota Fanning in the autocomplete directory while messing around (or stalking their crushes, whatever). It seems unless you go through the steps to opt out anyone with an NYU account can find anyone else’s email address and gchat.

Including director Spike Lee.

Although as the NYU Local puts it: “Want to gchat Spike Lee to see what he thinks of your Sight and Sound project? Now you can. We are not suggesting you should.”

It’s no wiretapping Fanning’s phone, but kudos to the students for knowing when they’re stumbled across a story.

Too bad “iCarly” star Miranda Cosgrove deferred her college experience (she was accepted at both NYU and USC); she and Dakota would have been perfect roomies.

Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
