Interview: Dakota Fanning

By BRETT MICHEL  |  April 13, 2010

Sounds daunting.
Yeah, absolutely.

Did you get to spend much time in the studio?
I did. But, you know, I think when the Runaways first recorded their album, they were just kind of thrown in there, and they did it a few times, and that’s what happened to me. One day, I showed up at a recording studio and realized I had to record the songs, and that was it. I never re-recorded them again. [Laughs.]

You wouldn’t necessarily know it from seeing the film.
Yeah! I was nervous, but it was all right. It worked out okay. [Laughs.]

Did you have any interaction with the real Kim Fowley?
Yeah, I met Kim one time before we started filming, and then I saw him a lot during filming on the set. But that’s a character I really loved in the film, and I was really excited to see what an actor was going to do with that character, and I think Michael Shannon was simply unbelievable and did such an amazing job.

Between this film and the Twilight movies, you’ve been working with Kristen Stewart quite a bit. Do you think you’ll work together again?
Kristen and I became, basically, best friends, and I would love to work with her again. [Laughs.] I’ve done three films with her in less than a year, which has been great, but absolutely, I definitely think we will work together again. And she and I will always be friends.

    Now that the shaky-cam nonsense has been left behind, what remains are textureless, overlit, sub-TV-quality visuals that only accentuate the fact that our protagonist, Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell), is at least a decade older than the 17-year-old exorcised sect-escapee that she's playing.

    Stop me if you've heard this one before: a farm boy dreams of adventure, finds it, and falls in love with a princess along the way. (For everyone's sake, let's just hope she's not his sister.)
