31 December 2011 1:24 AM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

London, Dec 31: Dakota Fanning claims that she once caught her sister Elle stealing from her closet after spotting the teenager wearing her clothes in paparazzi photos.

The 'Man on Fire' star banned her sibling from borrowing her outfits, but, with the help of a few photographers, she found out the 13-year-old was snatching pieces from her wardrobe without permission.

"She steals my clothes! As far as I'm concerned, there's a no-closet-sharing policy, but as far as Elle is concerned... I'll go in my room, and there will be clothes on the floor, clothes missing, clothes that are now in her closet," the Daily Express quoted. »

Dakota Fanning Caught Sister Stealing From Closet

30 December 2011 4:01 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Dakota Fanning once discovered her younger sister Elle was stealing from her closet after spotting the teenager wearing her clothes in paparazzi photos.

The War of the Worlds star banned her sibling from borrowing her outfits, but, with the help of a few photographers, she found out the 13 year old was snatching pieces from her wardrobe without permission.

Dakota tells Teen Vogue, "She steals my clothes! As far as I'm concerned, there's a no-closet-sharing policy, but as far as Elle is concerned... I'll go in my room, and there will be clothes on the floor, clothes missing, clothes that are now in her closet.

"Last summer, I was in London working on a film, and I was looking online and these pictures came up on my homepage. She was in my hat, my dress, my shoes. I called her up and was like, 'I caught you! They photographed you wearing all my stuff. Put it back!' She hung up on me! She didn't care at all."

However, Dakota admits she relies on her sister for style advice because the Somewhere star studies fashion religiously.

She adds, "She's the go-to fashion person in the family. Elle knows every single model, every single collection, every single piece from every single collection. She has a real passion, and it's not at all in a materialistic way. She genuinely appreciates the workmanship and creativity. It's funny, 'cause when you're an older sister, you try to be the leader and example, and I've recently had to accept that we're equals. The day has come when I actually need her help. I've had to admit that to myself and break down and be like, 'Little sister, does this look good?'" »

Elle Fanning ‘Teen Vogue’ Cover: She Admits ‘I’d Rather Look 2 Than 21′

28 December 2011 1:35 PM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

The fresh-faced 13-year-old makes the perfect covergirl for the fashionable mag -- and we love that she isn't in a rush to grow up too fast! Elle Fanning definitely isn't your average teen -- and even though she has a pretty impressive career, both on the big screen and starring in high-fashion campaigns, she isn't in a rush to grow up! "I'd much rather look like a two-year-old than a 21-year old," the star admits to Teen Vogue -- and I think it's so refreshing to see a star embrace appropriate looks rather than pushing the envelope in overly-sexy get-ups. Elle graces the February 2012 cover of the fashion mag, where the 13-year-old looks absolutely adorable in an appropriate red dress. Inside, she touches on every girl's favorite topic -- shoes! Elle says she really likes wearing penny loafers and always puts real pennies in them, "My mom used to wear »

Meet Hollywood's Mysterious New Blockbuster Star

28 December 2011 8:11 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

You could understand if Jeremy Irvine was feeling nervous, on edge, prickly: he's in a foreign country, bearing the burden of being the star of one of the most hyped movies of the year. A 20-year-old English kid, suddenly at the center of a passion project of one of the last half-century's greatest directors, a film that is being tipped for (and would soon be nominated for) a Golden Globe for Best Picture before it even hits theaters. But just hours before Steven Spielberg's "War Horse" premieres in New York, Irvine is all smiles, even as he's recovering from rounds of interviews and is crammed in the back of an elevator.

It's that type of indomitable optimism that must have attracted Spielberg to Irvine, that sort of pluck that made him willing to thrust him into the lead role of an English farm boy who loses his beloved horse »

Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson/Taylor Lautner/Breaking Dawn Fails to Break Five-Weekend Record: Box Office

27 December 2011 12:37 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Breaking Dawn Steven Spielberg/Jeremy Irvine/War Horse Opens Strongly; Cameron Crowe/Matt Damon/Scarlett Johansson/We Bought A Zoo Disappoints: Box Office Rounding out the top ten at the domestic box office this Christmas weekend was Amy Adams-Jason Segel's The Muppets with $2.14m according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. And that means Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, went the way of its three predecessors: David Slade's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Chris Weisz's The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and Catherine Hardwicke's Twilight were all gone from the top-ten chart after five weekends. What's most surprising is how far down on the chart Breaking Dawn landed: no. 16 (both for the tree-day and the four-day weekend periods). Summit has lowered the film's estimates from $2.1m to $1.52m »

Next Factor: 'War Horse' Star Jeremy Irvine

26 December 2011 7:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Just before Steven Spielberg took a chance on Jeremy Irvine to star in "War Horse," Jeremy Irvine was appearing in the chorus of the Royal Shakespeare Company, as a tree. Despite his lack of feature-film experience, Irvine impressed Spielberg during auditions for this epic adaptation of both a bestselling children's book and an award-winning Broadway show. The film depicts a boy (played by Irvine) and his horse inexorably transformed by World War I.  Now that he's been anointed by the legendary director, Irvine's starring role promises to change his life as well.

Age: 21

Hometown: Bedfordshire, England

What He's Done: "War Horse" is Irvine's first theatrical film, although he did appear on one season of a Disney UK television series called "Life Bites" and in the aforementioned chorus of the Royal Shakespeare Company in London.

What He's Doing Now: In Steven Spielberg's tearjerking World War I drama "War Horse," Irvine stars as Albert, »

Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart/Taylor Lautner/Breaking Dawn to Break Twilight Movie Top-Ten Record?: Box Office

25 December 2011 9:11 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Breaking Dawn Cameron Crowe/Matt Damon/Scarlett Johansson/We Bought A Zoo Disappoints, David Fincher/Daniel Craig/Rooney Mara/The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Passable: Box Office The no. 7 movie this Christmas weekend at the domestic box office will surely be Steven Spielberg's War Horse, which, as mentioned in part I of this three-part box-office article, is expected to gross close to $7 million on opening day — today. In addition to its four-legged star(s), War Horse features Jeremy Irvine, two-time Oscar nominee Emily Watson, Thor's Tom Hiddleston, Peter Mullan, Niels Arestrup, David Thewlis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Toby Kebbell, David Kross, Celine Buckens, Patrick Kennedy, Robert Emms, and Eddie Marsan. Sunday's other wide release, The Darkest Hour, an apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, isn't expected to make much of a splash at the box office despite showings at 2,324 locations.

Matt Damon/We Bought A Zoo Weak, Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson/Breaking Dawn Top-Ten Sixth Weekend?: Box Office

Patrick Fugit, Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, We Bought a Zoo David Fincher/Rooney Mara/Daniel Craig's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo to Surpass Swedish Original's Total Gross Over One Weekend: Box Office Despite the presence of Matt Damon, one of the most likable actors around, and former Woody Allen muse Scarlett Johansson, on Friday, Dec. 23, the kiddie-oriented We Bought a Zoo brought in a mere $3 million, landing at no. 6 on the North American box-office chart according to early, rough estimates found at both The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline.com. Directed by Cameron Crowe, who has been luckier with Tom Cruise (Jerry Maguire, Vanilla Sky), and distributed by 20th Century Fox, We Bought a Zoo is expected to gross less than $8 million at 3,117 locations over the three-day weekend.

War Horse Rising Star Jeremy Irvine Has His Friends' Help Staying Grounded

23 December 2011 6:04 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jeremy Irvine and Emily Watson play a mother and son in Steven Spielberg's War Horse, which opens Dec. 25. It was actually Jeremy's first-ever film role, and he learned that he nabbed the part in a situation only Spielberg could have masterminded. Now Jeremy's being hailed as a star to watch, with films like Now Is Good, opposite Dakota Fanning, and Colin Firth's The Railway Man on his resumé. Nonetheless, Jeremy's friends are there to assist in keeping his feet on the ground, helpfully reminding him, "Yeah, but you're not a paramedic."

Steven Spielberg/Tintin Tumbles, Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart/Breaking Dawn Nearly Gone from Top Ten: Box Office

22 December 2011 6:38 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Andy Serkis as Captain Haddock, The Adventures of Tintin David Fincher/Rooney Mara/The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Has Good (Not Great) Opening Day: Box Office With Tom Cruise performing impossible stunts in Brad Bird's live-action Mission: Impossible IV – Ghost Protocol, Tintin's motion-captured stunts in Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn may look a tad less compelling. At least in English-speaking North America. Whereas The Adventures of Tintin has grossed $239 million overseas, in the Us/Canada the adventure tale featuring the intrepid Belgian hero opened with a disappointing $2.3 million on Wednesday, Dec. 21, according to figures found at Box Office Mojo. (Tintin had already earned about $3.2 million in Quebec, where it opened on Dec. 9.) Tintin's top foreign market is France, where it has pulled in $53m; it's currently the fourth biggest 2011 release in that country, after local box-office hits Intouchables and Nothing to Declare, »

Spielberg's Top Concern Filming 'War Horse'

22 December 2011 10:53 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

From Mother Nature Network's Gerri Miller:

According to "War Horse" director Steven Spielberg, "Four million horses were killed in World War I and not just from shelling or gunfire, but from malnutrition and exposure." Spielberg depicts that brutal reality in his new film, but despite the harrowing situations they face, the equine heroes of Spielberg's latest epic were not harmed in any way making the movie. Extra care was taken in a climactic sequence in which a horse is caught up in barbed wire in No Man's Land. "It took much longer to shoot that scene because we had to make sure every single shot was safe for the horse." The barbed wire was actually "Styrofoam rubber painted silver," he adds.

American Humane Society representative Barbara Carr was on set throughout and "had the power to pull the plug if she ever felt any of the horses were not up »

Futures | 'War Horse' Breakout Jeremy Irvine

22 December 2011 8:47 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Age: 21 Hometown: Cambridgeshire, England Why He's On Our Radar: Plucked from obscurity, Jeremy Irvine is now set for stardom thanks to some director named Steven Spielberg. With "War Horse," the good looking Irvine joins the likes of Drew Barrymore and Christian Bale, two actors who launched their careers by appearing in Spielberg films. In the legendary director's wartime family epic, Irvine stars as Albert Narracott, a boy who develops a special bond with a thoroughbred named Joey that stands the challenging test of World War I. In a cast filled with luminaries (Emily Watson and Peter Mullan star as his parents), Irvine more than holds his own.  What's Next: Having Spielberg on his resume obviously helped the young soon-to-be star. Next year, he'll be appreading in "Great Expectations" opposite Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham Carter and the heartfelt drama "Now Is Good" starring Dakota Fanning. Irvine is soon to »

Taylor Swift mascara advert banned

22 December 2011 7:45 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A beauty advert in Covergirl featuring Taylor Swift has been banned in the Us. The National Advertising Division claimed that the NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara campaign contained excessive Photoshop editing, and refused to allow it into the public domain. "You can't use a photograph to demonstrate how a cosmetic will look after it is applied to a woman's face and then - in the mice type - have a disclosure that says 'Okay, not really'," Andrea Levine, director of the National Advertising Division, told Business Insider. Twilight star Dakota Fanning had a similar run-in with an advertising watchdog last month when her advert for 'Oh Lola!' perfume (more) »

Interview: Jeremy Irvine Discusses His Feature Film Debut in Spielberg's 'War Horse'

20 December 2011 1:11 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the last major films to come out this year will be Steven Spielberg's War Horse, based on the best-selling young adult novel and the Tony award-winning play, but the film is a completely different animal than either the book or the play. Unlike the play, which features some of the most creative and delightful puppets to grace a Broadway stage since Julie Taymor's The Lion King debuted back in 1997, Spielberg's epic features actual horses. Hundreds of them. While an argument can definitely be made as to who the actual lead actor in the film is, a strong case can certainly be made for the titular horse, the lead human actor in the film is someone you may not have heard of considering War Horse serves as his feature film debut. However, with War Horse in the bag Jeremy Irvine is continuing on with his film career »
