Dakota Fanning, who has established herself as a successful actress (a Screen Actors Guild Award-nominated one!) for starring alongside big shot actors like Sean Penn, Robert DeNiro and Denzel Washington when she was a lot younger, gave InStyle UK the privilege of doing a cover story on her for their December issue.

In the magazine interview, the 18-year-old star talked about fame at an early age as well as her “Twilight” saga co-stars-namely Kristen Stewart, and Robert Pattinson.

Speaking for the first time about Stewart cheating on co-star, Pattinson, Dakota argued:

“Everyone thinks they have the right to, you know, publicize the struggles and sadness and heartbreak and all of that. It’s like, ‘Why do you think you are the authority to judge people’s experiences?’”

But despite today’s obsessive media and her overwhelming success, the teen actress learns from others’ mistakes and keeps her feet on the ground.

She revealed to the magazine:

“Why have I been able to stay sane in a sometimes insane world? The pure love of what I do. Making movies.”

Looks like Dakota‘s got the whole Hollywood life down pat!
