Dakota Fanning looked stylish and mature in heels and a jumpsuit on her way to The Late Show last night. Her chat with Dave won't air until Friday, but Dakota recently addressed the Twilight rumors and taking on grown-up roles in an interview with Parade. Here's more:
- On the Twilight rumors: "It's definitely being discussed but it's not set in stone. It would be really cool to be a part of Twilight if it works out. I'm a big fan. I saw the first movie but I haven't read all of the books yet, I'm working on it. I would be a vampire, which could really prove that I can be sweet, little Dakota Fanning and then I can be something different on the screen."
- On growing up: "I can no longer do Lucy in I Am Sam. You have to grow up and I am doing it through films. Most people haven't seen me maybe as grown up as they will in Push. But eventually I'm probably going to play the person that you hate. I think that's the fun part about acting."
- On being starstruck: "I remember when I was very little my idol was Britney Spears. I had just come to California and that's just who I wanted to meet. So I was in a store and she walked in and my jaw just fell to the floor. I started like sweating. I could not believe that I was meeting her. She told me that I was very cute. And I lost it — I was so excited."
Dakota has always seemed mature for her age, and it sounds like she's excited to continue branching out and honing her talents as she works right on through her teen years.
