Charlotte's Web Hits the Big Screen

Charlotte's Web Hits the Big Screen

Charlotte's Web premiered this weekend at the ArcLight Theatres in Hollywood. The classic children's book scored some big names for their latest movie including Julia Roberts as the voice of Charlotte and Dakota Fanning who plays Fern. Here's more:

"I was intimidated by the character at first," Roberts says. "You want to capture her essence, which is so complicated and interesting, and yet she really is a spider. So it was definitely tricky."

Dakota Fanning, who plays Fern, always wanted to play the classic character.

"I was such a fan of the book. I read it so many times and it meant so many things to me," Fanning says. "It's about life and friendship."

Fanning also saw a strange reaction from those who know her the best.

"My Mom cried when she saw me in the yellow Fern dress with the little red ribbons. Getting to see the classic illustrations come to life was special."

Working with some Hollywood-inspected swine was also special.

"My first Wilbur was only four weeks old," she says. "We had 50 to 60 of them working on the set and the pigs were all so sweet."

And smelly? "No, everyone thinks they smell, but they really don't," Fanning says.

Charlotte's Web hits theaters December 15th. Other big names helped out on the film as well including Oprah as Gussy the goose, Robert Redford as Ike the horse and Cedric the Entertainer as Oprah's husband Golly the goose. Christine Taylor brought her cute little girl to the premiere and Bridget Fonda was there too.

Dakota is too mature for her age, which freaks me out. She has been talking like an adult since she was about 7. She is very talented and will be a superstar celebrity some day, but I think it's kind of sad that she goes from 7 to 30 in like 2 seconds.

I'm glad there's a little girl like Dakota in Hollywood these days. I can't wait to see how she transforms as she gets older. I saw her on the Regis and Kelly show a few days back, she is really super mature for her age. It was almost as if she could've taken Kelly's spot, nothing bad against Kelly, but really.

I have a serious phobia of spiders and you couldn't PAY me to see this movie. I'm sure Dakota is great in it, she is a cute girl.

That little girl has really grown on me. She's got such a good head on her shoulders and she's quite an actress. I think its awful how mean some bloggers are to her... you can tell she's going to grow up to be stunning AND talented.
