Actress Dakota Fanning had a tattoo treat in store for her when she appeared on comedian George Lopez's late-night talk show Monday night - her inked idol Kat Von D surprised her with fake skin art.

The "I Am Sam" star promised her mother she'd never have a real tattoo, but that didn't stop the reality TV star from creating a design for her.

Fanning told host Lopez, "When I was 11 she made me sign a contract and it said, 'I will not ever get a tattoo...' I had to sign my name, and my sister had to do the same thing."

But when the host invited Kat Von D to be a part of the show, Fanning a...

Dakota Fanning prepared to play The Runaways' Cherie Currie by fronting Los Angeles band the Living Things.

The teenage actress admits she was terrified about the idea of singing live in biopic "The Runaways", and so director Floria Sigismondi suggested she rehearse with her husband Lillian Berlin's band.

Fanning says, "Even the thought of singing karaoke has always terrified me, and I had never felt the power of a band behind me."

The "I Am Sam" star grew so confident as the Living Things' stand-in singer she even invited members of her family to drop by the studio to see her perform.

Cherie Currie's teenage rape ordeal was axed from the storyline of the new "The Runaways" biopic - because writer/director Floria Sigismondi didn't want the Cherry Bomb singer to lose her innocence at the beginning of the movie.

Currie, who is portrayed by Dakota Fanning in the new film, admits there was a sexual assault that inspired her whole look, but Sigismondi didn't want to dwell on an incident before the rocker formed the band with Joan Jett.

The rock star reveals, "There were particular reasons why I cut my hair into a (David) Bowie haircut. That was because when my twin sister'...

Kristen Stewart was banned from "groping" Dakota Fanning during their onscreen kiss for new movie "The Runaways" - because her co-star was just 15 when they shot the steamy scene.

The pair puckered up for a same-sex smooch during the film, about the 1970s rock group and featuring the "Twilight" actress as Joan Jett and Fanning as her band mate Cherie Currie.

And Stewart, 19, admits she was restricted by working practice regulations when they filmed the kiss, because Fanning was so young.

She tells Access Hollywood, "She was 15, and I wasn't allowed to grope her. I'm actually not kiddi...
