From child star to vicious bloodsucker — Dakota Fanning has transformed into the baddest newbie in “New Moon” and she loved every second of it.
“I think it’s more fun to play a bad person than a good person,” Dakota admits of her character Jane, a member of the evil Volturi vampire clan. “She almost blows your mind how evil she is.”
Fanning, 15, wore red contacts and white powder in the film. “I thought I was pale before I did the movie, but I realized that I’m not!” Dakota jokes.
Like Dakota, vampire Robert Pattinson kept his skin fair for the shooting of the movie — and tells “Extra” he thinks it’s funny that his pale disposition, once considered sickly, makes girls swoon. “It’s funny. People were like, ‘He looks like a junkie.’ And now, ‘Oh, he’s so good looking!'”
Rob, 23, still isn’t completely comfortable with life in the spotlight. “I get nervous about everything. I get nervous about leaving the house!” Anonymity for the rising star is no longer an option. “Now I know it’s too late to change my name. I really wanted to change my name to have a stage name. Now if I change it, I just look really lame.”
Taylor Lautner can relate to Rob’s feeling about fame. “Oh man, it’s so embarrassing,” he tells “Extra,” laughing.
