Dakota Fanning refuses to take her success for granted because she knows it may not last forever.

Dakota Fanning feels insecure in her career.

The 16-year-old actress – who shot to fame aged just seven in’I Am Sam’ – never wants to stop appearing in movies, but knows she can’t take anything for granted.

She said: “I know this is what I want to do for the rest of my life but I think that everything can end tomorrow.

“You have to live your life for the moment and not take it for granted. I don’t think you ever feel completely secure.”

The’Runaways’ star feels lucky for the opportunities she has had but still has ambitions to work with certain people.

She explained: “I’d love to work with Jodie Foster. I really admire her, her career and what she’s done. I can only hope to be just a little bit of how great she is.

“I feel so lucky to have had some of the opportunities that I’ve had. I know some people aren’t that lucky, to be at the right place at the right time or do the right movie.” [Source]

Dakota Fanning loves playing an evil character in ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’.

The 16-year-old actress – who portrays cruel vampire Jane in the blood-sucking movie franchise – admits she liked being able to transport herself into a nasty character.

She said: “She definitely takes pleasure in using her power which is inflicting pain on others, which is not a normal thing! So yeah it was cool to get to transform myself into more of an evil character which I haven’t done before.” [Source]

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s co-star from Twilight saga Dakota Fanning walked into the corridors of Hollywood right when she was a child as she featured in ‘I Am Sam’ at the ripe age of 7.

Dakota may be riding high on her new found success with Twilight and The Runaways fetching her the attention a young actress needs, but she has her feet firmly on the ground and isn’t taking the fame for grounded.

She feels, “I know this is what I want to do for the rest of my life but I think that everything can end tomorrow. You have to live your life for the moment and not take it for granted. I don’t think you ever feel completely secure.”

With Autumn right around the corner, the September issue of any fashion magazine is always the most important of the year; ask Anna Wintour if you don’t believe us! So when Vogue have to make the all-important decision of who to feature in their September spreads, we imagine it can turn into a debate that spans over several urgent meetings.

Well, this year it looks like they’ve solved the problem of finding the perfect person, by instead just casting LOADS of huge stars.

Their US September issue includes the likes of Usher, Christina Ricci, Pharrell Williams, Hayden Christensen, La Roux, Naomi Campbell, Rachel Weisz, and more… But most importantly, they have our number one girl, Dakota Fanning, who looks beautiful in a dusky pink lace dress.

Twilight actress Dakota Fanning is starring in a new Stand Up To Cancer public service announcement.

The 16 year old, who plays evil Volturi member Jane in the vampire movie series, said in the advert that the cause is close to her heart.

She said: ‘Pretty much everyone is affected in some way by cancer, whether it’s yourself or a loved one or a friend. I myself have lost both of my dad’s parents to cancer.

‘My grandmother passed away when I was four, so it’s something I’ve been affected by for pretty much as long as I can remember.’

Dakota Fanning says she would be lost if she didn’t make it as a successful movie star — because she doesn’t know how to do “anything else” other than act.

The starlet says she feels her most comfortable when she’s on screen. “I’ve realized that I don’t know how to do anything else,” she said. “Acting is the only thing I feel most myself.”

Dakota also admitted she’s “really nervous” about learning how to drive. “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.” [Source]

She made her film debut at the age of 6 alongside Sean Penn in the drama I Am Sam, and appeared all grown-up earlier this year with Kristen Stewart in the 70’s punk-rock epic The Runaways, but Dakota Fanning insists she is still taking her time when it comes to choosing adult movie roles.

“When you start out young, people get really attached to who you are at 6 years old,” Fanning says in the August issue of Marie Claire, on stands now. “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.'”

With a busy year ahead, including finishing up high school at North Hollywood’s prestigious Campbell Hall as well as wrapping the final two Twilight films, Fanning is looking forward to the future, but still enjoying the present. “As you get older, there’s so much more that you can do in films,” she says. “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.”

Apart from the Twilight films, Dakota reportedly has two other projects in the works. [Source]
