Dakota Fanning Crowned Homecoming Princess

Dakota Fanning Crowned Homecoming Princess

Dakota Fanning is crowned Homecoming Princess during her football team’s away game at Crespi Carmelite High School on Friday (October 30) in Encino, Calif.

The 15-year-old actress is used to walking the red carpet at film premieres but after being crowned homecoming royalty, she got to walk the red carpet on the football field!

Dakota and her fellow Vikings on the cheerleading squad — from The Campbell Hall Episcopal in North Hollywood — stepped up the school spirit during the football game for their high school football team.

    she seems nice but i wonder if the other kids hate her- famous, rich AND homecoming princess? There must be some jealous girls there.

  • greta

  • engeneer

    She’s a smart girl. With 15 years old she has achieved what a 30 year old would have dreamt of. She’s my favourite, I like her lol

  • LuckyL

    Aww, yay! Good for her. She’ll escape as one of the few normal ones. Probably because she’s receiving a proper education unlike Britney, Miley, Lindsay, the list goes on and on.

  • Cindy

    Good for her!! Glad she is able to get some normal teen life too!

  • LuckyL

    But are these official photos? Seems a little sketchily taken, due to the blurriness. Secret papz perhaps?

  • LuckyL

    And she was crowned to be on the court Jared. Did you attend homecoming? There’s no princesses.

  • Jenny

    um Lucky L britney went to hs too..she went to Parklane Academy in McComb, mississippi ;)

  • Alejandro

    ^^^Currently a bitter, unpopular teen, quite possibly because of her sh*tty attitude on and off the net

    um Lucky L britney went to hs too..she went to Parklane Academy in McComb, mississippi ;)
    Lol, I said proper education. If you’re such a Brit Brit fan you would know she only attended hs for one year.

  • Jenny

    lmfao hun i go to parklane academy too she even went to prom..she didnt go there her 1st semester of senior year but then she went bacl

  • Cals


  • lizzie

    I’m sure she has a bright future ahead :)


    she has won only because she is famous.. come on! she’s not THAT cute!!

    And the guy she is with has got his fifteen-second fame

  • cute

    She’s a very talented actress.
    Nice to see that she gets to live somewhat of a normal life too.

  • alexa

    i love Dakota and all, but she got crowned because she’s famous. That’s really not fair AT ALL to the other girls at her school.

  • dundies

    thats kind of creepy

  • dundies

    i wonder if she’ll peak come highschool

  • Amanda Dubs

    That’s awesome, I’m really happy for her.

  • realblond36

    I’ve never heard of a high school having their homecoming at an AWAY game. Weird.

  • Kate

    “she has won only because she is famous”
    I agree and think it’s a shame – Dakota is talented, there is no need for cheap PR tricks.

  • Jorden

    Good to know you all attend her school and know for a fact that she only received the award because she is “famous”.

  • not public

    Okay- she attends an Episcopal church highschool — not a public school – a private church school — not cheap.

  • team Camino

    She should be studying instead of participating in those worthless awards

  • Lisa2

    I may be too old and things have changed….. But I thought there was only a “Homecoming Queen” that was a senior and the court was other seniors too that didn’t get as many votes to complete the court? I wonder if the boy she is with is her “boyfriend”??? He seems happy in the photos as well.

    Also, I wonder if she would do any cheerleading movies like Kirsten Dunst has done. It would be fun for her I would think?

  • AreYouKiddingMe

    Its nice to see a teen actress acting like a teen. Thumbs up to her parents.

  • HEY


  • Lisa2

    @team Camino: It’s at the homecoming game and then probably a dance coming up tonight although it is Halloween, they may change the date! . People voted her to win, it isn’t something that takes any of her time. She is a teenager and should enjoy everything it has to offer. Isn’t she entitled to have a regular life like everyone else? What harm is it to have fun in high school. You think kids study 24/7? If so, you are delusional…………..

  • Awesome

    Good for her parents. They are giving her a proper education and childhood unlike Britney, Lohan and Miley. She will grow up to live a healithy and productive live kinda like Nitilie Portman and Reese. she went to Havard, she smart , beautiful and classy.

    First of all, if you “went” to high school with Britney–since it’s very odd you put that as current tense–you would know what I said is fact. Here “sweetheart”:

    After two years of living in Orlando while doing the show, Britney Spears moved back home to Kentwood and returned to high school. Her one year as a 14-year-old high-school student would be the last bit of normalcy in her life. With dreams of pursuing a career as a singer and a desire to leave her small hometown, Britney set off to New York City. Britney then signed with Jive Records after impressing an executive with her demo tape.

    Further info for you: In 1997, Spears briefly joined the all-female pop group innosense. Later that same year, she recorded a solo demo and was signed by Jive Records.She began a U.S. concert tour sponsored by American teen magazines, and eventually became an opening act for ‘N Sync and the Backstreet Boys.

    She was 15-16 during that time. Please fall back, learn to spell, and post only under one name. I don’t know why you’d involve yourself in an A and B conversation.

  • LuckyL

    And can people stop acting like Homecoming is some diplomatic thing anyway? Or even when electing the class president? *rolls eyes* Sometimes the truly nice all-around girl gets nominated and wins, but most of the time it’s the hot b*tch with all the friends. If Dakota got nominated for any other reason than kids like a cool girl how is that any different or a problem? Good lord.

  • anna

    @alexa: ikr

  • loyal

    Homecoming royalty is voted by the student body, dummies. I think this shows that she is a grounded, popular girl who the other students like, in spite of her fame. Good for her and good for her fellow students, who judge the girl and not her circumstances. Most young celebs complain their fellow students hate them. People that post on this stie are getting mean and judgmental. Repulsive of you that you would slam a young girl you don’t even know, or even other people you don’t even know. Jared, you really should start blocking more of these icky posters. Or we are going to have TMZ mentality on the site.

  • LuckyL

    ^^^Exactly. I like how people who have half the world hate or love them complained how “no one liked them” in hs, like MiHoley and Meg-Fox

  • christine

    When I come on here i c your name followed by arguments under new celeb threads.
    There’s a difference btw “speaking up” and “being smart”.
    Ppl r laughing b/c u actually take this seriously & fall for the trouble of arguing each time.
    I’m glad ur so game in2 allowng perfect strangers waste ur time…

  • bored

    you people are annoying… Life is not Dakota Fanning

  • tlt

    i love her :) she is so awesome :D

  • nita

    Dokota is cool but lets face it in her school there must be some type hate or bad connotatios towards her well lets see shes rich, she and well established actress, she has worked with huge stars
    Tom Cruise, Robert Pattinson, Robert De Niro, Denzel Washington. and now she’s Homecoming Princess ummm yeah some jeaslousy of course she is just straight out lucky maybe too lucky….
    and to top it off she’s good at her job so yup, i wished i could be in her shoes. But i have never heard if an away homecoming game,, and now they have a Homecoming Princess
    interesting all i am saying is that i wished i had her luck …

  • bored

    As everyone in this world nita. Don’t know about her future but her present is perfect

  • springs_qween


    How is she spoiled? She goes to public school and still participates in regular teen stuff. And a disgrace? You obviously have your eyes shut. She is a wonderful young actress unwavered by her fame.

  • springs_qween

    In response to all the comments about other kids hating her at school. Uh, it’s high school, someone always hates someone because of stupid stuff. That’s just high school.

    Besides, Dakota seems to be handling herself okay and not letting haters keep her from going to school. She could easily use her fame and money to get a tutor or school from home. She hasn’t let anyone bother her. Good for her.

  • K.C.

    I think it’s pretty pathetic that so many of you are hating on this young girl. Most of you are probably 45 and have daughters older than her. She’s just a kid and has obviously made a (wise) choice to try to live a normal life despite her Hollywood career. Leave it to a bunch of bitter hags to hate on a kid that is staying in school.

    There must be a lack of Gerard Butler news today or something.

  • Penny Lane

    could not agree more!!! she’s only homecoming princess because she’s famous!!! it’s kinda unfair for the other girls!!

  • Hulla

    Lol at all those hatfeul jelous bitches who commented before me!

    You’ll all end up having husbands who cheat on you you judgemental idiots. :)

  • Ct

    it’s good to see that she gets to do NORMAL things, especially all the success that is under her sleeve.
