Dakota Fanning wore a sequined Stella McCartney gown at last night's London premiere of Now Is Good. While chatting with press, Dakota talked about her Stella dress, saying, "I picked this dress because I thought I should wear a British designer, since this is a British film and I'm here in London." She was joined on the red carpet by costars Jeremy Irvine, Kaya Scodelario, and Olivia Williams. Based on Jenny Downham's novel Before I Die, Now Is Good features Dakota as a young cancer patient determined to live her life to the fullest. Up next, Dakota is sharing the big screen with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner in the Twilight franchise's final installment, Breaking Dawn Part 2, due out Nov. 16.
Dakota Fanning is all grown up now, which means it's time for her requisite weepy teen romance movie. In Now Is Good, Fanning plays 17-year-old Tessa, who learns she is dying of leukemia and sets out to do "as much as she can as fast as she can." That includes doing drugs, breaking the law, and a relationship with Adam (Jeremy Irvine), a boy who is sweet enough to stand by her side and help enrich her final experiences. Oh, and did I mention that Fanning has a British accent?
Though the movie looks like a ton of others you've seen before, I'm still enjoying getting used to seeing Fanning as an adult actress. Plus, I'm glad to see War Horse's Irvine popping up in more films, since he seems like one to watch. Watch the trailer and see for yourself when you read more
Dakota Fanning was in her costar Jeremy Irvine's arms yesterday as the pair shot a loving scene in the English countryside. Dakota and Jeremy are starring in the upcoming BBC Films movie Now Is Good together. Dakota has been wearing a blond, pixie-cut wig as she gets into character, playing a young woman dying of leukemia who sets out to live life to the fullest in the wake of her diagnosis. The new project prevented Dakota from joining her Breaking Dawn castmates last week at Comic-Con, where they shared an early look at the final installments in the Twilight saga, including the much-anticipated wedding and honeymoon scenes.
Dakota Fanning wore a short wig yet again yesterday as she got back to work on Now Is Good in London. The actress plays a young cancer patient dying of leukemia who sets out to experience life to the fullest in the movie. Dakota is spending her Summer focused on her career, but the recent high-school graduate is expected to head East for college in the Fall since she was seen checking out schools with her parents in NYC. In addition to her movie work, Dakota also recently played dress-up with her little sister Elle for Vogue's Age Issue and posed solo for Marc Jacobs's latest Oh, Lola! fragrance ads.
Dakota Fanning stepped out yesterday on the set of her latest movie Now Is Good with a shockingly short new 'do. Dakota plays a young woman dying of leukemia in the film, and whether the haircut is her own or simply a wig she's sporting for the role, it was a big departure from her usual longer blond locks. Dakota wouldn't be the first young Hollywood celebrity with a pixie cut. Emma Watson, Michelle Williams, Ginnifer Goodwin and Carey Mulligan are just a few actresses who have gone under the scissors and worn the style for movie parts and personal preference. Dakota revealed the new look as she got to work this week following a trip to NYC last month to check out colleges. The actress, who graduated from high school in early June, is reportedly set on going to a Big Apple university when school starts in the Fall.
