Dakota & The Runaways
images from Socialite Life & Filmofilia
So before seeing the movie I assumed Kristen Stewart was the star of the film since she played Joan Jett (of "I Love Rock and Roll" fame) who is probably the most 'known' band member of "The Runaways" today but the movie was actually based on Cherrie Currie's biography which means Dakota Fanning soaked up way more screen time than K-Stew. Which was fine with me because I can only take so much lip-chewing and awkwardness from the latter. Dakota's performance was powerful. I kept saying to myself, "I can't believe she's only sixteen!" And not only is she an amazing and talented actress, she also seems very intelligent and mature in interviews, like she has a good head on her shoulders with a solid support system. Hopefully - fingers crossed - she won't be tempted by booze, drugs, fame or sex a la former child star Lindsay Lohan and Cherie Currie herself and end up getting out of cars with no underwear on (or worse, in jail!) and ruining her career after she turns eighteen. I'm really rooting for her. I think she's a much better role model for young girls compared to people like Lindsay or the plastic-surgery addicted, talentless girls of "The Hills" or even Miley Cyrus who acts like she's 16 going on 25. Anyways, what do you think of Dakota Fanning? Good role model? And have you seen the movie? By the way, I really liked it : ) And I will admit that K-Stew was pretty good in it as well. Awkwardness and all ; ) Have a wonderful Thursday Lovers! It's almost Friday!!!
