Dakota Fanning got all dressed up for the upcoming December/January issue of Teen Vogue. She isn't the first member of the film's cast to appear on the cover of the magazine, after Taylor Lautner's turn a few months ago. Dakota had a busy weekend at their press conference in LA, where we got lots of amazing one-on-one time with the cast — more of that to follow. She found time recently to sit down and open up about growing up in Hollywood and joining the Twilight gang. Kristen Stewart even weighed in about working with Dakota. Here's more:
- On prepping for her role in New Moon: "I wasn’t in my mirror like Zoolander, doing Blue Steel! The red contacts were enough. I read all four Twilight books in one week. It’s such a phenomenon and I wanted to be able to be a part of that."
- On maturing in Hollywood: "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 acting out: "I get my rebellion out through my movies. I’m boring in that way. I enjoy having a normal life."
- Kristen on Dakota: "Dakota is one of the most consistent actors I’ve ever worked with. I’m always better with her."
