Dakota Fanning graduates from high school
Despite working steadily through her childhood and teens, Fanning was able to maintain a somewhat normal life away from movie sets. At school, she was a member of the varsity cheerleading squad and was even (surprise surprise) crowned Homecoming Queen two years in a row.
"I think it was really important to have the high school experience," said Fanning on "Today" in 2010. " I just think everyone always looks back on that time in their life. Who was homecoming princess and [did] the cheerleading ... and all the things that go along with high school? And I wanted to have that. I'm really lucky that I found a school that allows me to do both."
The "Twilight" actress plans to enroll at New York University in the fall.
