Dakota Fanning Looks All Grown Up in the Pages of Marie Claire

Dakota Fanning shows off a range of hairstyles in August's Marie Claire US. She's riding high on the release of Eclipse, after she joined her costars for the latest Twilight film's big LA premiere. Dakota spoke to the magazine about her past as a child star, playing a vampire and even the kiss she shared with Kristen Stewart in The Runaways. She said:

  • On locking lips with Kristen Stewart in The Runaways: "It's out of the way, and it was with my friend and a girl—no pressure. It was not something Cherie [Currie] and Joan [Jett] ever really spoke about, and that's how it was filmed—as not that big of a deal."
  • On hiding her famous baby blues in the Twilight films: "It's something that's always been there for me, that I have huge blue eyes—it's been something that people have always talked about. But I enjoyed the red. You're automatically transformed into a creature when you put those red eyes in."
  • On moving past her child star status: "When you start out young, people get really attached to who you are at 6 years old. I hope that The Runaways was kind of a moment to be like, 'You know, I'm not that young little girl anymore, but I'm still not all grown up, either.'"
  • On her future as an actress: "As you get older, there's so much more that you can do in films. I've never wanted to rush that; I've always wanted to do what's right for my age, but as you approach 18, a whole new world opens up to you as an actor, and I really look forward to that."
