Dakota Fanning Missed Eclipse Screening To Take The ACT!

| Filed under: InspirationYoung HollywoodDakota FanningTwilightKristen Stewart


She may be besties with that awful Stewie Puss, but we'll forgive her, because Dakota Fanning is the most adorable, well-adjusted teenage celebrity of all time!

Girlfriend was recently set to attend a pre-junket screening of her new sparkly vampire extravaganza, Eclipse, but had to bail - because she was taking the ACT college admissions test!

She says:

“I was taking the ACT. It could be really good or really bad, we’ll see. [I] did some guessing on my Scantron. I didn’t know one question on the science section. [Option] D sounds good! So I don’t know, that was not good for me. I don’t even know how it’s scored."


We're glad to see that she's using her fame and success as an excuse to not get an education, like the skanky MileyBird!! College is a great experience for EVERYONE!

And Dakota seems like a pretty smart kid, so we're sure she did FINE on the exam!

Let us know how you did when your scores come in, bb!

    She is trully amazing, she lives her life and doesnt allow the "industy" to mess with her…. I LOVE YOU DAKOTA!!!!! U will go down in history babe!

  2. 2

    theres nothing wrong with not going to college, its not for everyone. and LOTS of people do just fine without going to college. not to take away from Dakota..i think its great shes going to school..just like the girl from Harry Potter (her name is slipping right now) and its great they have back up plans cause they may not want to act forever. but putting down people who dont go to college is just lame.

  3. 3

    I'm sure she could care less that you "forgive" her after your horrible post about her outfit. Which I thought was age appropriate, and kind of cute, I think it was just not a good angle. Hope you got decent scores Dakota!!

  4. 4

    Yeah, she'll end up like EVERY other super famous girl in Hollywood. It's only a matter of time.

  5. 5

    College is a waste of time and money. Want to throw away your money on useless classes that you don't need for your major? Sure, go to college and be in debt for the rest of your miserable life! Trade schools are the way to go.

  6. 6

    I guess Kathy Griffin as wrong that time on the red carpet about the rehab at age 9, lol. She's so normal. Yes. Now all she needs is a decent acting gig. Scantrons are awesome, btw.

  7. 7

    What college did you go to, Perez?

  8. 8

    i love dakota ;) she's so smart and actually going to school while at the same time being a really successful actress which must be extremely difficult! She's far more talented and will go a lot farther in her life then a LOT of other lame celebrities her age ;) she's living a lot of teenagers dreams right now!!

  9. 9

    she should teach you spelling and grammar

  10. 10

    Sooooo…everyone who doesn't go to college are what…losers? Way to alienate your 'fans' fucktard.

  11. 11

    Smart girl. She's going to sail past her undereducated peers…see Lindsay Lohan for an example of an actress that imploded when, instead of hitting the books, she hit the town.

    Re: catlover – !!!!!! you said it :D

  13. 13

    Re: eulailyan mikoto – He went to NYU. lol..

  14. 14

    wait i could be wrong…but didnt your beloved gaga drop out of school? guess shes a loser too by your standards.

  15. 15

    Lol Miley and dakota are smarter than your left nut, perez. hahaha

  16. 16

    Sheesh all he said was "College is a great experience for everyone" now if you took that as offensive or that hes calling people who didn't go to college "losers" its probably because your insecure and think that your a loser.
    He only used that skank Miley as an example because she used her fame and success as excuse to not go to college. If she would have straight up said its just not for me and I don't want to go,maybe people would respect her more instead of making excuses.

  17. 17

    Summit doing whatever they can to keep Kristen and Dakota apart in public. (big ol'lesbian lovers!)

  18. 18

    oh god i remember taking that.
    i had a terribly low score :(
    i should've taken the SAT's.

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – TOTALLY agree with you!!

  19. 19

    Good for Ms. Dakota. :D

  20. 20

    Considering you just tweeted a pornographic photo of Miley, it may be a little soon to call her slutty, or anything else other than the person who has lawyers that are anxious to sue you for many reasons (child pornography, defamation, ect). I love your site, but am not supporting someone so disgusting as to due that to a teenage girl, so until a sound explanation is provided, this is definitely the last time I read this site.

  21. 21

    That is correct. Higher learning isn't for everyone.

  22. 22

    Re: catlover – your comment made me laugh. college is not a waste of time and many colleges offer financial aid or complete scholarships for those who cannot afford the high costs. Saying that college will lead to debt and a "miserable life" is completely inaccurate as it supplies you with education as well as experience needed to get a solid job in life. It is those who hold themselves back from going to college by coming up with excuses like "it isn't for everyone" who are more likely to live a miserable life.

    way to go Dakota! Lead by example.

  23. 23

    SUCK ON THAT MILEYTNEY SPEARS(only into her crazy birdy head…)

    i always knew that this girl was smart, now she is doing the right thing, i hope she talks to kiki stewart and put some sence into that big head of hers and convince her to take acting lessons, or even go to college, or she will end up just like her mommy(that crazy mental person that thinks she is a movie director…so sad), who knows, maybe she will realize that she sucks as an actress and will stop pretending… kristen GO STUDY SWEETY!!!

  24. 24

    She doesn't sound all that smart from that airhead quote, but hey, A for effort I guess? Anyway, Emma Thompson (Hermione) and Natalie Portman are better role models as far as young actresses going to school are concerned. Both are well spoken, unlike Dakota.

    Re: catlover
    Hey moron, did your doctor go to Trade Tech? Is college a waste of time and money? Sure, if you want to collect degrees just to push papers around or work retail. If you want to become a doctor….college is hmmm…fucking mandatory! BTW, maybe you were too stupid to earn a scholarship?

    Re: xlagirlx – I went to college, and I found it to be a waste of my time and money. That is my take on it. If you like owing a mountain of money, then good for you. You still have to pay back those student loans, you know.

  28. 28

    Re: feel_the_darkness – I don't visit doctors, so I could care less. I earned a degree, moron, so choke on a dick.

  29. 29

    good for her! just proves she has a good head on her shoulders.

  30. 7tizz says – reply to this


    Good for her. Taking her education more seriously than a frivolous, shallow hollywood event. That my friends, shows class.

  31. 31

    Ms. Fanning is smart to continue her education. There are two words than make it clear why you should continue developing as a person when you're a child actor:
    Gary Coleman.

  32. MP says – reply to this


    College is not a waste of time or money. An education is something that no one can take away from you. And good luck getting a good job with only a high school education. In many cases, even a bachelor's degree is not enough. I believe Perez went to NYU, not a shabby school. I hope Dakota Fanning stays as sweet as she seems to be. She looks to have a good head on her shoulders and any college would be lucky to have her.

    Re: durka dur – *Watson not Thompson.

  34. 34

    She was amazingly great in Push. I can't believe the movie was not more popular. I really wanted to see the sequel. She was a great young actress and will undoubtedly be a great adult actress. There are a few child actresses, like Amanda Bynes, that seem to be able to avoid crashing, burning, and self- destructing in Hollywood bars and parties.

    Re: Cynabun – Oh an e-shrink on a gossip site, how neat!! Tell me, while you're shrinking me for finding mario's need to belittle miley for not going to college (and ignoring the fact that many chose to forgo college but spits on them as well in his zest to put her down) what do you think of a man who spreads hate like butter over toast, but stomps his foot and whines about gays not being treated like equals?

  36. 36

    Re: catlover – What exactly did you major in? Art, history, music, underwater basket weaving??? Did you graduate from DeVry, Heald or one of those online colleges? Maybe that's the reason you are so bitter about going to college. Don't even get me started with trade schools. Do some research an see the difference in salaries between a high school degree vs. a college degree.

  37. 37

    Love her! Young hollywood could take a lesson from this girl!

    Re: catlover – You went to college, found it to be a waste of time and money and now here you are commenting on Perez Hilton when you could have lead a great life.

    The way I look at it, i would much rather go to college where i could study hard to eventually get a well paying job and pay off those student loans. I am sorry college didn't work out for you.


  40. 40

    Re: catlover – I agree! College is a waste of time unless you pick a really employable major like Health Care. If you just pick a major you like then you are going to be in debt the rest of your life. (I learned that the hard way) Employers value work experience more than a degree. That is a fact. Dakota is rich so she can afford to major in whatever she wants and waste all of her money on college.

  41. 41

    i dont care how old she is i would pound that ass into powder

  42. 42

    where did you go to college?

  43. 43

    Natalie Portman did the whole skip-the-premiere-to-study thing already… Only she went to Harvard. And she is GORGEOUS. Dakota is okay, but I doubt she is half as intelligent and she most certainly isn't as pretty.

  44. 44

    Re: catlover – next your going to tell me you dont use banks, a dentist, western medicine, plastic, a car,…you are right, college was a complete waste of your time and money. perhaps if you choked on a few more dicks you could pay back those loans. and when you are done you can install my directv pronto!

  45. 45

    She seems kool.maybe shes a robot.

  46. 46

    Why Do u have to mention miley in every single one of your effing posts?!!
    Oh yeah, you are jealous of her because she is able to travel and have fun in her life while you are stuck behind that computer like a loser and keep blogging.
    And I doubt that dakota is going to tell you her score, she doesnt even care what u think

  47. zooby says – reply to this


    Anyone saying that college is not worth going to is a clueless, miserable loser. How the hell do you expect to financially support your family? Trade schools are a joke. You definitely need a degree especially right now!! Nowadays a bachelor's isn't even enough … you need a masters. So how can you say that you can get by without attending college? All of you who didn't might be content with your decision right now, but you'll regret it one day… I guarantee it.

  48. 48

    using her fame and success to not get an education.w.t.f.

  49. 49

    She's a smart girl. I loved her in "The Runaways".

  50. 50


    don't say that college isn't important, is the same thing that saying that your never will need a doctor's help, or a lawyer, or anybody with college degree, it's a lame speech, COLLEGE IS IMPORTANT INDEED!

    but sadly, isn't for everyone, you must have a minimum of intelligence to enter in a university, and you go there to seek something more than fame, money, or a degree, you need to be there to gain knowledge.

  51. 51

    I like Dakota. i hope she stays the way she is. But how the hell is this news?

  52. 52

    She's a terrific kid, love her.

  53. 53

    good for her, but i really don't care if she didn't know all the answers or what she scored…

  54. 54

    actually NO, its not a great experience for everyone, I think I am going to start a blog and copy all your stories but rewrite them to make them actually enjoyable to read, you and your sister are awful

  55. 55


  56. 56

    I think it's great that she's thinking of going to college, although she has more than enough money to get her through her lifetime without employement. It shows that she's down-to-earth and really grounded awn the idea that she may nawt want to act forever. I think she could give everybody else in Hollywood a lesson or two.

  57. 57

    i like her more and more

  58. 58

    Film careers come and go but an education lasts forever.

  59. 59

    i love dakota.. fame has not gotten to her like many other celebs! :O)

  60. 60

    hmmm i liked her better when she was the leading actress in robert deniro and denzel washington movies :) oh how the times have changed.
