Photos of Dakota Fanning Winning Homecoming Princess At Her High School

Dakota Goes From Homecoming Princess to Twilight Star

Dakota Fanning took the field to perform with her cheerleading squad before being named homecoming princess Friday night in LA. She smiled big and proudly donned her tiara with a football player on her arm. It's her second year as a high school cheerleader, and this season Dakota probably has a few envious squad mates since she landed her role in the Twilight saga movies — and got to hang out with shirtless Robert Pattinson in Italy, for example. We'll get to see Dakota as Jane on the big screen in just a few more weeks when New Moon hits theaters and before then on the red carpets when she trades in her uniform for premiere dresses and joins her costars who have already started promotion.

I love how she looks genuinely happy and excited that she won. She's not proud and I really respect her for that.

Wow...she looks normal. Now, before I get yelled at, I love Dakota, she just creeps me out sometimes because she is so polished and mature. It's nice to see her as a young woman, doing things that young women do, and looking like she's have a good time. It's amazing that a young celeb can remain as polished as she has, especially in interviews, but pictures like this are refreshing.

blossommac: I don't get how you can say that Kristin doesn't have her feet on the ground. The girl is constantly saying all she wants is a normal life, and how she wishes the paparazzi would leave her alone, and that she wants to be an actress but not a movie star/celebrity. The girl never goes out to party unless it's with a large group, and she's not running around shopping everyday and getting drunk every night. I'm not sure she was aware how huge Twilight was going to be so it's not like she was like, "Yes I'm going to do this low-budget film and a few months from now half the planet is going to be checking out my every move and half of those people are going to be calling me names. Sign me up." Okay so half the planet is an exaggeration but you get my drift.

OH MY GOD THIS IS SO American. As a Brit this looks really odd, but I guess it's a right of passage?

i love the people that don't want to believe that actors can be normal too. it was dakota's choice to be 'normal' and she's making it work as best as she can. the good thing is that since her role wasn't a MAJOR one in the movie, she was able to do the high school thing. i'm kind of surprised that she was homecoming princess or whatever - but i think that it's nice right?

well Dakota always sound like a girl with feet on the floor, Kristen not so much, Dakota want to have a normal life plus be an actress. so many actress think they are so good to be at school. the good role model like Dakota and Emma Watson go to school, and want to have something in their brain

I applaud her and her parents for keeping part of her life as normal as possible.

Well I guess she don't get teased by kids in school like poor Kristen did since she won homecoming! Good for her, she is so adorable too!

She is so cute! And she looks really good, and definitely a role model.

That's really nice - a lot of child actors find it hard fitting in with other kids but it seems she's well liked. As a side note, I really don't like this homecoming/prom queen business. I mean, should schools be holding official popularity contests? I'm not from America so don't know what it's like for the kids but it just seems like every other girl in the class would be made to feel like crap because they're high school royalty. I also find it kind of strange how teenagers are dressed in miniskirts to do cartwheels and splits in mid air.

It is really great to see she's even still attending a public school, hanging out with kids her age and not feeling too good for it all like a lot of fellow actors her age. Big kudos to her.

I'm in agreement with most of the comments above. My first thought was that it's nice to see how "normal" she is despite her fame.

I love that she's enjoying every aspect of her childhood and teen years. I hope that she continues to enjoy her life. Sweet girl.

Cute :) Good to see she's doing normal childhood things as well as being a movie star.
