Meaning, of course, that they are somewhat awful. A track from the the Joan Jett biopic that the girls star in, The Runaways, has been released and doesn’t do much to make you want to see the movie. In fact, I’d say that this track makes me much less excited to check out the film. I wrongly assumed that they wouldn’t actually be singing much like they’re not actually playing instruments. Bummer.
Uhhh, so this is awkward, but how hot does Dakota Fanning look in Vogue? I know, I know, she’s like 17 and we pant like dogs at chicks this age or younger regularly, but Dakota! We’ve known her since she was a child! It’s bizarre to see her all grown up, free of any kid-to-adult actor awkwardness that we usually see form stars and more talented than ever. Maybe she’ll get a little wild once she’s out of high school, but I think that Dakota’s almost in the clear in terms of becoming another young Hollywood train wreck.
Dakota Fanning is 16, but she looks like she’s 12, and I’m okay with that. Because she is absolutely adorable. Look at her in her little Bowie shirt! Dawwwww…..
She saw a few flicks this weekend at the Sundance Film Festival, meeting up with Kristen Stewart for one of them. Then I stole her and put her in my pocket so I could carry her around with me like a teddy bear.
Did that just cross the line into creepy?
Oh well, I’m sure that happens a lot with her.
Finally! A clip from The Runaways with some actual dialogue! We’ve seen the trailer by now and I think for the most part every 20-something chick and teenage girl I know is pretty excited to see how K-Stew and Dakota Fanning managed to do while taking on the parts of Joan Jett and Cherie Currie. And ya know? What we see in this clip above seems kind of promising.In the scene, we see Cherie Currie (Dakota) get approached by Joan and a record producer in a club. Cherie was a young teen when this scene took place, so you can only imagine the kind of girl she was to find herself in that sort of situation. I’m still willing to hold on to the idea that this movie could be really embarrassing for everyone involved (most especially the audience. I’ll die if I get there and I have to watch Kristen Stewart awkwardly pretend to shred for two hours), but the acting doesn’t seem horrible.
The trailer for the new Kristen Stewart/Dakota Fanning flick The Runaways was released this week and OMG, you guys! It looks so good. Dakota Fanning! What!? Damn, girl! She’s looking hot for days! It almost makes me uncomfortable.
For anyone who’s been living under a rock, The Runaways is the biopic of Joan Jett, with Kristen playing Joan and Dakota playing the band’s lead singer, Cherie Currie. We’ve never seen Fanning or Stewart take on a role like this, and considering they are portraying rock legends, their performances will be held to a certain standard. Maybe it’s just some fancy editing that makes this trailer look so great (admittedly, we don’t see much of their performances here), but my interest in seeing the film is definitely at an all-time high now.
I have a very hard time accepting how grown up Dakota Fanning is looking these days. She’ll be 16 in February and she’s a junior in a private high school in L.A. Just, wow.
She appears in the December issue of Teen Vogue and talks about starring in the Twilight sequel, New Moon. It seems that she’s a big fan of the books and co-star Kristen Stewart. Let’s just hope Kristen keeps Dakota away from the bong. She’s one of the few non-Lindsays left in Hollywood and it would be nice to see her progress more down a Jodie Foster-ish path than a Mackenzie Phillips-ish path.
