Kristen Stewart “wasn’t allowed to grope” Dakota Fanning


Here are some cute photos from the LA premiere of The Runaways. Several things are happening all at once, so here are the basics: Kristen Stewart is not rolling her eyes in every other frame; K-Stew is wearing pink, which is so exciting, although the color is not really her best, I do think she looks cute as a button; Joan Jett and Cherie Currie walked the red carpet too, which is exciting; and little Dakota Fanning is adorable, beautiful, and she and K-Stew seem to have a very genuine friendship, which is so cool.

K-Stew and DakFan have already been out promoting The Runaways, with Kristen taking up most of the promotional duties. I guess because she’s older and she’s more famous? But it seems like DakFan is the one whose getting the best reviews out of this film, so we’ll see. Anyway, while doing press, Kristen was talking about her friendship with DakFan, saying: “Working this closely with someone, you can’t help but really become bonded with them and it really helps when you actually like them and can become really good friends… I haven’t really done a lot of movies with people close to my own age to have a good friend like that. So I was excited, and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to do it with.”

Now, The Runaways will feature some girl-on-girl action between DakFan and K-Stew. Kristen told the press yesterday, regarding their on-screen kiss: “It was cool. I didn’t mind it. The way that it happens in the script is so just a sort of moment in time and fun and natural and sort of impulsive.” To which Dakota chimed in: “It was just another thing.” Kristen also told Access Hollywood that because of Dakota’s age (she was 15 when she filmed the movie), Kristen said she “wasn’t allowed to grope her… I’m actually not kidding, there are major restrictions that I don’t remember [from] when I was younger.” Kristen goes on to explain the kiss as “just something that happened in their lives. I don’t want to give anything way. It’s a really passionate, hardcore scene… No, it’s just a kiss. It’s not really a big deal.”

Sidenote: I just realized who Kristen reminds me of in these photos – she looks like Katy Perry, doesn’t she? Ugh.

    Love Dakota, Seeing the movie just for her!

  2. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I want to see this movie, too…love the music and I think it looks good.

    Fanning and Stewart both do look so cute – it’s so nice to see Stewart smile.

    and wowza, Joan Jett looks hot! I think she’s someone that I’d “switch teams” for.

  3. Melanie says:

    Smirky Smirkface looks happy today!

  4. Dorothy says:

    Joan and Cherie looks great!!!

    This is hands down the BEST I have ever seen Kristen look, good for her.

    Dakota is cute too!

  5. canadianchick says:

    I think it’s great homoerotica is in films and starting to mainstream, one more step towards inclusivity. Go girlies go! I would have been more open-minded as a teen if I had seem this in movies.

  6. Jag says:

    My guess is that they’re talking more to Stewart because she plays Joan Jett, who is the lead. If it were going on more famous, it would be Fanning – unless you’re just talking recently with the Twihards.

  7. bellaluna says:

    Love Joan Jett’s music.

  8. Maria says:

    I’ve been hearing great things about Dakota, Kristen, and Michael Shannon’s performances in the film. I can’t wait to see the movie!

  9. Blitz says:

    Joan and Cherie look great!

  10. Dan says:

    Dakota seems to be a very masterful actor… Everything I’ve seen her in floors me..and then to think how young she is.. truly greatness

  11. serena says:

    No, Dakota is way more famous then kristen.. only because of twilight she’s famous now, she’s better? I don’t think so. Btw, I like them both.. but god, someone has to change that funky idiot hairstyle of kristen. it pisses me off.

  12. Just a Poster says:

    You mean there is a parent in Hollywood that said “No I don’t think so!” and didn’t bend the rules to get their kid ahead?? WOW.. color me stunned!

    I can’t wait to see this movie! Hopefully they did it justice!

  13. Jackson says:

    Not KP – KS has always reminded me of Alicia Silverstone.

  14. Sherry says:

    Seeing the movie because Kristen is in it!! She will rock this out!

  15. malina says:

    WOW I’m suprised but I really like Kirsten’s make up and dress even though it doesn’t fit her best. I actually prefer her look to Dakota’s. I don’t know what happened to me 😎

  16. bubbles says:

    I saw the previews and was actually stunned by … how to put this delicately, I don’t know if I would want my 15 year-old daughter to play a part that was so sexually explicit. Don’t get me wrong I think DF rocked it but personally I’m not sure if it’s ageappropriate. what’s the film’s rating again?

  17. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Joan Jett is awesome. That is all.

  18. Dawn says:

    Ha! I knew it, but I had to be sure and look it up at IMDB. Cherie Currie was in a movie called “Foxes” with Jodie Foster.

    Danm, Joan Jett is looking hot.

    It’s always nice to see K-Stew smile.

  19. flourpot says:

    I don’t think there’s any such thing as age appropriate in Hollywood. Or naivety. And yay for K looking like an actual girl.

  20. Carrie says:

    I think Kristen Stewart is slowly learning that to have a career she has to play the press game- I actually like that she isn’t naturally self-possessed or outgoing.

    I think the two of them are both side-stepping the usual land mines for teen/child actors (drugs, partying, DUIs, sex with older men, etc) and so a friendship is probably a good thing for them both.

    Kristen looks beautiful- she really has such a pretty face and gorgeous eyes.

  21. Camille says:

    DK and KS both look very pretty! I love that they have their natural skin colours too- no orange skinned girls here- I LOVE that!

  22. mslewis says:

    I think Dakota might be doing less press at the moment because she’s in regular school. Spring break is coming up soon and I think she will probably do a bit more interviews, etc. for the movie. I don’t think it has anything to do with who is more or less famous.

    A couple of years ago, Dakota did a movie (it went almost straight to video) called “Hound Dog” where she was raped and beaten and generally treated badly. Most critics were appalled at it and chastised her mother for allowing her to do it. So,I don’t think the fact that there are sexually explict scenes in this movie will hurt her much. Everybody knows she’s a good girl, now. There would be more of a fuss if she were a junior Lindsay.

  23. Beth says:

    The movie is autobiographical. Cherie was 15 or 16 when The Runaways hit. Casting Dakota wasn’t farfetched. I guess they could have gotten a 18 year old to play the character so it wouldn’t seem so shocking.

  24. Shannon says:

    Wow, a picture where Kristen isn’t heavy-lidded and looking stoned out of her mind! I’m impressed.

  25. gg says:

    Wow, how good do Joan and Cherie look!

  26. Meh says:

    I think kstew is realizing that she’s about to turn 20 and can’t pull that silky teenage bullsh!t anymore. She has to do the cliche hand on the waist pose and smile for the camera.

  27. EMV says:

    I think they are cute!

  28. M says:

    KStew looks good when she stands up straight.

  29. NicoleAM says:

    I second the comment about the natural skin color! My first impression was rock on pale chicks! They both look beautiful and I’m def gonna check this movie out. 🙂

  30. Scout says:

    Kristin and Dakota look very cute! I like a smiling Kristin much better!

    I guess I am the only one who thinks Joan and Cherie look scary and sort of ridiculous. Just my opinion…but to each his own.

  31. mollination says:

    Kstew more famous? My mom knows who dakota fannning is. DakFan has acted beside some major greats. And her career is longer. I would say DakFan is more famous. Kstew is a popular trend (Albeit obsessively popular) among a certain age-group. Not to say she wont act for some time, I think she will. But I think DakFan is “more famous”.

    All that said – I LOVE these two as friends, I LOVE dakfan, and I want to see this movie.

  32. kimberly says:

    wonder if they match bowls together?

    agree fanning bigger star

  33. GrrrrrrlGrace says:

    Dakota will be around for a while…Kristen, eh…she’ll be doing DWTS in about five years.

  34. johndoe says:

    Time really took a sledgehammer to Cherie Currie eh?

  35. Aspen says:

    Oh, that dress is god-awful. Blech. Other than that, everyone looks awesome. Finally, a picture of Stewart looking happy about something.

  36. I’m liking these happy KS red carpet photos. The dress is kinda blah but she looks good.
