Dakota Fanning & Jennifer Hudson are Bee-st Friends

Actress Dakota Fanning and actress/singer Jennifer Hudson from the film The Secret Life Of Bees, pose for a portrait during the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival at The Sutton Place Hotel in Toronto, Canada on Saturday.

Via Wiki:Set in South Carolina in 1964, The Secret Life of Bees tells the story of Lily Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed. When Lily’s fierce-hearted black “stand-in mother,” Rosaleen, insults three of the deepest racists in town, Lily decides to spring them both free. They escape to Tiburon, South Carolina – a town that holds the secret to her mother’s past. Taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters, Lily is introduced to their mesmerizing world of bees and honey, and the Black Madonna.

The film is based off the 2002 best selling novel of American author Sue Monk Kidd and will be released on Oct. 17.

Dakota Fanning is so pretty! Shes so old now!!

# 4

She used to be so much cuter but she still is real cute, and its cool to find out that she isn’t like Miley Cyrus who is so much into attention when in reality Dakota deserves all that attention since she is way MORE talented.. her teeth are so SMALL!

I can’t wait to see this movie. Dakota will be stunning with she matures.

The Secret Life of Bees is one of my favorite books! I was kind of wary when finding out they made it into a movie…for anyone who’s read it, we could all say it was a very touching book. I’ve always imagined Lily to be older, but I guess Dakota suits her just fine. I hope they don’t ruin the book though!

Dakota’s adorable! I saw her at Comic-Con. She missed her panel because she was stuck in traffic but she made sure to come say hi to all of us. I can’t believe how grown up she is now!

dakota looks beautiful! She’s all grown up!
hey Hudson and Fanning are also in WInged Creatures together… I guess they’re inseparable!

I read the book two years ago and it was AMAZING!!!! I’m so glad they made it into a film. Dakota is cast perfectly and so is Queen Latifa. I can’t wait. I highly recommend reading this book as well.

It will be interesting to see how Hollywood will handle her transition from kid actress to more adult roles. Hollywood is cold though, they could drop her like its hot and only think of her as a child actress and move on to other young women. Time will tell.

Hilarie Burton of ONE TREE HILL plays her mom in the movie.

^^^^ So who cares??????????

Why is it every time you put a white person next to any person of color, they always come off as blonde, blue eyed devils? Dakota looks scary! Damn white people!

This is one amazing book and hope the directors and actors were able to do justice to it.

I saw the trailer of this movie on REELZ channel, makes me want to read the book.
Dakota is really growing up. She looks to be a very intelligent young girl.

I “lost” my original reply to this.
