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.

Dakota Fanning takes Eclipse by storm. While her time on screen is small, Fanning fans the flames of war that are central to the Eclipse universe.

Kristen Stewart shines as Bella, but she also rocked as Joan Jett opposite Dakota Fanning in The Runaways. The two, between the Twilight movies and filming the Runaways, have become the best of friends.

Dakota Fanning, although only 18, has amassed a film career many performers would proudly call a lifetime. Fanning has starred opposite Hollywood’s biggest stars including Reese Witherspoon in Sweet Home Alabama, Man on Fire with Denzel Washington, War of the Worlds starring Tom Cruise as her father and who could forget her turn in the astounding The Secret Life of Bees

Twilight star Dakota Fanning has revealed that before she became an actress, her parents had hoped she would excel on the sporting field.

“My mum 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,” The Secret Life Of Bees star told Jay Leno.

She added: “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.”

Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning are good friends and co-stars — last year in “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” most recently in “The Runaways,” and soon in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” opening Wednesday.

But they’re also neatly paired opposites.

Stewart might uncomfortably remind you of the young person living in your house, or the one you used to be — prone to bad posture, complicated moods and eye-rolling exasperation.

Fanning, however, is a picture-perfect role model.

She dutifully fits in a morning of interviews on an already crammed day in Manhattan. Dressed in fashionable but appropriate tight black leggings and loose white blouse, she listens to questions attentively and answers in calm, direct sentences.

“She’s so professional,” one TV reporter after another says after leaving Fanning’s hotel suite.
