Twilight Eclipse is ruling the weekend, and while usually that means a focus on Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, we can’t forget that these films actually have some proven commodities in them, and one of them is Dakota Fanning who already in her young career/life has shared screens and been directed by some of the biggest names in the business. Flare is a Canadian fashion magazine and you’ll find Dakota on the August cover.

Fanning of course is ‘Jane’, a member of the Volturi in the Twilight Saga. She will return in the next chapter of Twilight, Breaking Dawn, which hits theaters (the first half) in November 2011, and is directed by Academy Award winner, Bill Condon. [Source]

Dakota Fanning: All Grown Up

She talks to Tom Cruise regularly. Sean Penn visits her on set. And her first grown-up on-screen kiss is now behind her. Dakota Fanning is definitely not a little kid anymore.

The dress code at Campbell Hall, the private Episcopal school in North Hollywood, California, once attended by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and now by Dakota Fanning and her little sister, Elle, is strict: khaki skirt, shorts, or trousers, white collared shirt, navy sweater, closed-toed shoes. “You could actually wear this,” says the elder Fanning — wide-set, frank blue eyes; fair hair; milk-white skin; and the wispy limbs of a John Currin painting — flouncing her skirt, a cream-colored silk pouf, and in the process gaily jangles a wristful of bangles. We are sitting opposite each other in a quiet booth at the Sunset Tower Hotel, in Los Angeles. Her skirt might be passable, I think, but that little distressed white cotton tank with the bra peeking out could be grounds for detention. Ditto the 5-inch, brown Marni wedge sandals that were a present for her 16th birthday, in February, and that add significantly to her petite, not-quite-5-foot-4 frame.

Teen actress Dakota Fanning is stressing out about her college applications a year ahead of high school graduation, amid fears she flunked an important admissions test.

The Twilight actress is worried she has failed her ACT test – a standardized exam for students that can weigh heavily on admissions to high-ranking universities.

And the 16 year old is facing her worst fear while waiting for the results – that she may not get in to the college of her choice.

She explains, “I took the ACT. I got the email today saying, ‘Your scores are on the way.’ So now I know to watch for the envelope and hide it for a few weeks.

“I’m just afraid I didn’t do well because I came out (of the exam) and I was like, ‘Oh, that was easy! That was not hard.’ My confidence is completely gone.” [Source]

She’s not “adorable little Dakota Fanning” anymore. She’s 16 now, but you’d never know it by talking to her on the phone.

In a recent interview from Los Angeles, where she was promoting The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which opened Wednesday, Fanning came across as every bit the seasoned film and TV veteran she is — 40 movie and TV credits since her debut, at age 5, in a Tide commercial.

On the phone, she seems perhaps 26. The Georgia native is polite, charming, intelligent. She does not giggle. We talked briefly about her role as one of the Volturi, the ultra-nasty vampire royalty who make brief appearances in Eclipse and its predecessor, New Moon.

Question: What are the Volturi up to this time?

Answer: We come there (the United States) this time, rather than everyone coming to Italy. There’s a big battle between the vampires and the werewolves on one side, and the newborn vampires on the other. The Volturi kind of pop in, do their thing and swoop out. (Not wanting to give too much away, she declines to define “their thing” for publication.)

Q: Those red eyes are wicked. How do they do that?

A: We have hand-painted contact lenses. They were really hard to get used to at first, but once you put the costumes on and those contacts in, it’s very dramatic in terms of acting. You transform.

DAKOTA Fanning says she’s “really nervous” about learning how to drive.

The actress, 16, admits she’s more frightened at getting behind the wheel of a car than she is in front of the camera.

“I have my permit to drive but I am only just starting out driving,” she said. “I’m really nervous about it.

“I can drive along the flats now but not busy roads or the freeway. I have a long way to go before I’m brave enough for that.”

Fanning recently revealed that she had her sights set on becoming a tennis player before becoming an actress.

“My mom went to college on a full scholarship for tennis, my dad played minor-league baseball and my grandfather was a quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles,” she said.

“So before I started acting the plan for me was to be a tennis player – that was the plan for me and my mum had me in tennis classes.

“One day I went to her and told her I really love the outfits but it’s just too hot – it’s just too hot for me to play tennis and I didn’t want to play anymore.” [Source]

We aren’t saying this only because we are completely Team Coco, but we really can’t stand Jay Leno’s late night shows. If you missed Dakota Fanning on “The Tonight Show” last day, don’t even bother catching it online and just wait until tomorrow night when the entire cast is on Jimmy Kimmel.

Not only was there no new clip (we have the now staple Volturi in Seattle scene), but there was no real talk of “Eclipse,” and the entire interview was a clearly pre-choreographed snooze fest.

All the talk of “Eclipse” was in the final minutes of the interview, where Dakota admitted she has loved Vancouver since she worked on some projects there when she was younger, and spends most of her time walking up and down Robson Street. Jay seemed really concerned about how she and the rest of the cast (or “vampires,” as he repeatedly put it) spent their time off set, so Dakota told a story about how they played a game of what can only be described as mini-bowling during their “New Moon” days.

Now, yes, there has been plenty of oversaturation with the stars of “Eclipse” over the past two months, but there could have at least been some effort to talk about the film. It’s what she was there to promote, and as much as we love that she was adorable as a kid playing sports and loves the Lakers, that’s not what we wanted to see.
