Dakota Fanning: Being Mean to Kristen Stewart is Weird

Dakota Fanning: Being Mean to Kristen Stewart is Weird

Dakota Fanning‘s electric blue eyes stand out in this new shot from her Teen Vogue cover shoot.

The 15-year-old actress dished in the December 2009 issue about growing up through her movie roles, why she chose to go to private school and her budding friendship with Kristen Stewart. Check it:

On her relationship with Kristen: “We became really close, like we’d known each other for our whole lives. We talk all the time. I’ve never been such an evil character [in New Moon], and because I do know Kristen so well, being mean to her was really weird. It’s like, ‘Sorry, dude!’ [Our] relationship that Joan and Cherie have in the script [for The Runaways] is kind of the one that Kristen and I have in real life, minus the destructive part.”

On transitioning from child-star to teen-star: “I’m going to get older and I want to act for the rest of my life—it’s what I love—so I have to move forward with my career. The choices that I make might not always please everyone, but I have to do what I feel is appropriate and right for the time.”

On going to a private school: “I get my rebellion out through my movies. I’m boring in that way. I enjoy having a normal life. I started there [at my school] in the ninth grade, and they were pretty receptive to me right away. I really wanted a home base, because I feel like no matter how old people are, they remember homecoming. They remember their senior prom. And I really wanted that.”

    I hope Kristen does not turn her on the smoking pot.

    She turned out to be really pretty.

    her friends in real life are pretty wild from pictures i have seen. And I actually love kristen and her together. I hope they remain friends because i think they could always lean on each other. They both started young, have worked with many of the same actors, they know what its like to grow up in the industry. I can’t wait for the runaways, i love these girls so much. And obviously kristen idolizes dakota because in a comicon video she said something like, ‘Dakota is the best young actress out there and that she really inspires her’. Love them.

    Pretty, smart & great talent, she just got it all !

    I look forward for her futur projects…

  • Whoever

    I agree. She looks so pretty! And I thought she was going to grow up 2 be funny looking! Her head look photoshopped on her body though! And it obviously look like they are trying to make her look older by the way they dressed her, because her face still look pretty young.

    She is really growing into a beautiful young woman. I love that she is so talented & has gone from child to teen star without rehab or a lot of drama. She seems to have a good head on her shoulders. Best of luck to her in the future. :)
