Twilight star Dakota fanning is apparently trying to patch up fellow co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s relationship. She reportedly thinks that Pattinson should give Stewart a chance.
“So much time has passed and Kristen’s still hung up on Rob. Dakota’s made it clear she thinks Rob should give Kristen another shot. Both of them have been so miserable since splitting that it’s driving her crazy. It’s a tragedy that they’d walk away from something that was once so perfect,” a source close to Fanning told Heat magazine.
Pattinson had ended his relationship with Stewart, his girlfriend of four years, when Stewart confessed to having an affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
Stewart later apologised and the couple briefly got back together, but split a second time after she got back in touch with Sanders. Now Fanning has stepped in to help the couple.
“When Dakota told Kristen she was meeting up with Rob, Kristen meekly told her to say hi for her because Rob hasn’t taken her calls since October. During lunch Dakota urged Rob to pick up the phone – even if it’s just to talk as friends. It’s gone on way to long and she wants them to patch things up,” sources explained.
Apparently, Stewart is still said to be struggling to come to terms with the split. She reportedly feels that no one else will match up to Pattinson.
“Kristen’s tried hard to move on, but she has no interest in dating anyone, because she’ll always hold a torch for Rob. She still loves him with all her heart. Rob’s still on the fence, but admits there’s something missing from his life – Dakota’s determined to convince him that it’s Kristen,” the source concluded.

Dakota Fanning and her sister Elle Fanning, who are busy building their respective career in the entertainment industry, reportedly have grown apart. Dakota lives in New York City while Elle calls Los Angeles her home. The two additionally are rarely seen being together.
“They have something of a peace treaty, in the sense that Elle gets L.A. to herself, while Dakota is much happier in New York. Dakota is living off of the fortune she made as a child actor, instead of chasing after every big job under the sun,” a source told Radar Online.
“Elle is the more ambitious one. Dakota is the one who could quit acting to start a band at the drop of a hat. Dakota is completely unimpressed with the red carpet culture in Hollywood, while Elle totally worships it,” the source explained of the two sisters.
Dakota started her career as a child actress. She got popular for her role in “I Am Sam” alongside Sean Penn. She was only seven years old when she was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for the 2001 movie. The 19-year-old actress has other movies such as “War of the Worlds” starring Tom Cruise and “The Twilight Saga’s New Moon” in her credits.
Elle, meanwhile, is famous for her roles in “Daddy Day Care”, “Super 8″ and “We Bought a Zoo”. Next year, the 14-year-old actress can be seen in “Maleficent” alongside Angelina Jolie and three other movies.
A source recently told Star magazine, “They became firm friends on the set of ‘Maleficent’, and Angie’s decided to take Elle under her wing. In this film, Elle really comes into her own and they’re looking for another project to develop together.” The fantasy movie will be released on May 30.
Dakota Fanning is coming to San Francisco. The War of the Worlds actress is scheduled to attend the Mill Valley Film Festival (MVFF) which opens October 3rd.
With her new film Effie Gray the one-time child star is out to once again prove that she has what it takes to command the big screen.
The role, as a Victorian child-bride marks the first time the Georgia native will play lead and attempt to carry a film as an adult.
Shot in the British Isles, the Effie Gray is receiving strong notices. Dakota’s performance has been called “mesmerizing” – a word which we like, we just hope it means in a good way.
If you want to see the star, you better grab tickets soon. There’s only on screening. So mark your calendar for Saturday, October 12 at 6:30pm. That’s when Fanning is scheduled to arrive at the Christopher B. Smith Film Center in San Rafael, located a hop and a skip north of San Francisco.[...]
It’s been nearly a year since the news broke that Dakota Fanning had joined the cast of “Girl’s Night Out”, Michael Hoffman’s film based on the true story of how the future Queen of Britain, Princess Elizabeth, and her sister Princess Margaret celebrated VE Day in 1945. Alexandra Roach joined the cast back in November, but as with all films long in gestation, it looks like Fanning has dropped out of the project – allowing British actress Juno Templeto jump into the role.
When the film was first announced back in February 2011, the plot details weren’t too specific, stating ” When [Princess Margaret] and her sister Elizabeth are allowed out from Buckingham Palace for one night to join in the celebrations, the night encompasses thrills, romance and danger.” However Britain’s Daily Mail now have further information, “Elizabeth has an innocent romance (this bit is totally fictional, folks!) with a recently returned soldier, who doesn’t realise he’s hanging out with a princess. The pair even go dancing at the Ritz.”
Temple was one of our Faces to Watch in 2012, and this year alone will see her in dark comedy “The Brass Teapot” opposite Michael Angarano, and filming thriller “Magic Magic” opposite Michael Cera. This is a great coup for the actress however, who will get her first big breakout in perhaps the most anticipated film of the year, Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises”.
Filming on “Girls’ Night Out” is set to start this Fall on location in London.
If you were planning an indie film and were looking for two actresses considered at the top of their game in that field, you’d be hard pressed to beat casting Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen. Director Naomi Foner had the same thought, and has finally locked them in alongside Anton Yelchin for Very Good Girls.
Though you wouldn’t think either woman likely to struggle getting dates, Girls will find Olsen and Fanning as two lifelong best friends planning to spend their summer after graduating high school finally losing their virginity. Like so many teens before them, they see it as a vital rite of passage into adulthood. But there’s a hitch: they both fall for the same boy (Yelchin), and soon things become very complicated…
Foner has been trying to get the film made for a while now, and with her cast in place can aim to start shooting this June in New York. “The film deals with female sexuality and friendship in a way we haven’t seen before,” she tells Deadline. “These girls will be stunning young women in a couple of years, but they’ve struggled through high school with only each other. Most of us have been there. This is the summer where they finally get to touch real life.”
Olsen is currently enjoying more Sundance acclaim in Josh Radnor’s Liberal Arts and has Martha Marcy May Marlene about to hit UK cinemas, and Fanning will crop up at the end of the year as psycho vamp Jane in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.
