The 2009 Palm Springs International Film Festival

THANK GOODNESS Dakota Fanning is growing up to be a cute teenager. I was so worried for her as a young actress having to go through that transition in front of the entire world. Typically, child actors who are adorable when they are young turn into quirky teens who need to quit the business for a few years to get through the awkward stages.

But here she is, as pretty as she can be, at the 2009 Palm Springs International Film Festival alongside Sean Penn, Anne Hathaway, Leonardo DiCaprio, Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams and Josh Brolin.

What do you think about what everyone decided to wear? Anne sure loves her black doesn’t she? :)



But How Do You Really Feel?

“I still think photographers should be lashed out at. They should be put in a cage where you can poke them with a stick for a quarter. But not in a hostile way, just for giggles. “They really are on the attack against mankind; it’s a disease. They should be helped somewhere. But I’d still like to poke them with a stick.”
