Dakota Fanning Watches Adorable Home Video of Her and Sister Elle Fanning Dressed Up for Halloween as Kids

"I don't remember being that bossy and that mean," Dakota said after watching throwback footage of her and Elle as children

Dakota Fanning is taking a trip down memory lane with her sister Elle Fanning!

Dakota, who recently celebrated her 30th birthday, appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Monday to discuss her recent birthday and upcoming Netflix series Ripley. During her interview, Jimmy Fallon displayed a throwback home video of Dakota and Elle, 25, as children preparing for Halloween one year.

Dakota could be seen holding her hands to her face and laughing as the video played; it shows her and Elle, then a toddler, putting makeup on as Dakota snatches an eyebrow tool away from her younger sister.

"Hey, that's my stuff. I have to do my eyebrows," Dakota tells Elle, who is dressed like a clown, in the video. "What is this?" Elle asks about the tool, to which Dakota responds: "It's for your eyebrows, and you're not allowed to use it. Go put your wig back on!"

"It's so sad! It's so sad! I actually remember that moment but I don't remember being that bossy and that mean," she told Fallon, 49, after viewing the home video.

"That's my thing: I'll say to my family, 'I don't know what the problem is, I'm super relaxed, I'm super easy-going,' " she joked. "And they're all like, 'That's not true.' "

"February 23, 1994 the world got brighter and more beautiful," Elle wrote in a caption to her post. "I could sit and listen to you talk for hours, in fact that is my favorite place to be…absorbing your advice, your fascinating view of the world (things you ARE and AREN’T 'interested' in) I have always felt safest with you by my side."

Dakota expanded on Elle's comment about her dreams of turning 30 for years on The Tonight Show, telling Fallon that she has "always rounded up my ages" in response to her and Elle's mother, Hannah Joy Arrington.

"M response to her is always, 'Mom, I'm almost a 30-year-old woman, you cannot be walking in my bedroom at three in the morning because I could be doing anything in here,' " she explained, after noting her mother "will call 100 times" and visit her home if she does not answer her phone.

"I've been saying that for my entire 20s," she added. "And now I'm like, 'Oh God, I am a 30-year-old woman, so now I have to say 'I'm almost a 35-year-old woman' next time she does it."
