Dakota Fanning is ''super happy'' in her relationship.

The 20-year-old actress - who has been dating British model Jamie Strachan, 33 for over a year - has revealed she has no problem with the 13-year age gap.

When quizzed about her relationship, she told The Times newspaper: ''I'm super-happy. I think love is very important and it's really fun to have someone to experience things with. It makes everything a bit more special.

''People love who they love and you go with that. People get so stuck in rules for life. You go with what feels right.''

Meanwhile, the 'Twilight' star has hit back at those who criticise how she looks in paparazzi photos, explaining that their comments have ''no bearing'' on how she feels.

She said: ''I don't have any feelings about it. That holds no bearing on how I feel about myself at all.

''If someone says something positive or negative, it lives there and I live here and have my own feelings. It doesn't cross the barrier ... People should wear what they want and look how they want to look.''
