Dakota Fanning Says Kristen Stewart, Her Onscreen Enemy, Is Her Real-Life "Best Friend" 2010-07-13 17:00:00

Dakota Loves Her Normal Life and Hopes to Be a Nice Person

Dakota Fanning went with bright red lipstick for the August issue of FLARE. She has the Summer off from high school to enjoy the continued success of Eclipse, and, in a few months, Dakota will reunite with her Twilight crew to work on Breaking Dawn — make sure to check out what the series's screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg told us we can expect in the final installments. Dakota opened up to the magazine about her work in the vampire franchise and also spoke about her friendship with costar Kristen Stewart and her surprisingly normal life. Dakota said:

  • On her down-to-earth daily life: "I have such a normal life when I'm not working . . . It's just nice to be around people you care about and who know you best."
  • On acting alongside Kristen in Eclipse: "Kristen is one of my best friends, so it was really funny playing her enemy in Eclipse . . . But that's what acting is and when they yell 'cut,' you can go back to your normal self."
  • On her favorite wardrobe staple: "In Push, I wear these Doc Martens. They're worn-in and they're so soft, and they're one of the only ones that were made with a zipper. That has affected my style in a completely new way. Now I wear them every day."
  • On the career legacy she hopes she'll leave: "I hope people will have been moved by something that I've done or [that I've] helped somebody through a hard time . . . and that I've stayed true to who I am and have been a nice person."

She has grown up so beautifully, I think she will continue to be an amazing actress.

I think the pictures aren't meant to be candids or of her true self, they are more like art with her as a center piece, I like them a lot.

I guess I'm in a minority here, but I'm not loving the styling of the photo shoot.. Dakota's such a pretty young girl, I don't really get why would they try to make her look like a 30 years old. The make up is just unflattering, imho.Aside from that, she's always seemed like a good, liable girl. Such a breath of fresh air, especially if you consider she is basically the same age as Miley Cyrus and that girl from "The Grinch" :)It's nice to know that not every parent in Hollywood has been following the J. & L. Spears Parenting 101 :D

good girl, stay on track...see, when you actually raise your kids and are a parent to them vs trying to pimp them and hang out, there can be balance...it seems like her parents let her take roles but make sure she's still in high school, she'll graduate and has some semblance of normality and a childhood :) she looks adorable by the way

she's really a lucky girl don't you think? looking at all her work and who she's had a chance to act with - she's really lucky. i wonder how filming the last 2 movies will affect her schooling though since it's going to take some time to shoot. she has a decent role in BD that im sure it'll take her away from her year. oh well. i guess she'll figure it out.
