Jamie Lee Curtis Joins Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation to Honor Dakota Fanning at This Year's 'A Stellar Night' Gala

LOS ANGELES, March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- In the twelve years of her very accomplished life, actress Dakota Fanning is about to do something few people -- celebrity or not -- have done: receive an honor for which the last recipient was the legendary Steven Spielberg. On March 31 at The Beverly Hilton, Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation presents Fanning with the 2006 "Heart of Gold Award" at the organization's annual "A Stellar Night" gala. The award will be presented by Fanning's friend and "Dreamer" co-star Elisabeth Shue, and honors the young star for her enthusiastic dedication to helping others at such an early age.

The evening, hosted by actress and long-time Starlight Starbright supporter Jamie Lee Curtis, has a kid-focused theme taken from the foundation's mission to make a world of difference for seriously ill children and their families. This year marks the first time Starlight Starbright has invited kids to attend the cocktail attire affair, providing them an opportunity to experience the importance of philanthropy firsthand.

Keeping with this theme, entertainment throughout the gala showcases young singers including up-and-coming teen-sensation Kristy Frank as well as inspiring R&B vocalist BO Benton. In addition, the event features a special V.I.K (Very Important Kid) Lounge, sponsored by Hollywood Video, where young guests can write notes to hospitalized children and try out Starlight Starbright technology such as PC Pals and Fun Centers that feature a Nintendo GameCube(TM).

However, children's active involvement in Starlight Starbright doesn't stop on March 31. In fact, the foundation is using this year's gala to announce the launch of StarPower -- a committee of young ambassadors working to make a difference and spread the word about the importance of giving back at an early age. Host Jamie Lee Curtis will act as the group's honorary chairman or "Fairy Godmother," and the StarPower gang is already shining bright with teen celebs lending their names to make a difference, including: Kyle and Chris Massey ("That's So Raven" and "Zoey 101", respectively), Corbin Bleu ("High School Musical," "Catch that Kid"), Ashley Tisdale ("High School Musical") and Ricky Ullman ("Phil of the Future").

Starlight Starbright will also honor local philanthropists Debbie and Glen Bickerstaff as the first recipients of the foundation's "Jacki Carlish Humanitarian Award." Named after a woman who dedicated her life to Starlight Starbright, ensuring sick children still had a chance to be kids, this is a fitting honor for the Bickerstaffs who are very much kindred spirits with the award's namesake. As philanthropists who have demonstrated their kindness locally, nationally and globally, Debbie and Glen are being honored for their compassion, leadership and generosity of spirit.

Starlight Starbright's "A Stellar Night" brings together organizations, corporations and people who are committed to making a difference in the life of a child. Over the years, many of the country's leading corporations have supported Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation; in specific regard to "A Stellar Night," the following corporations have shown remarkable support through their generosity and innovative contributions to the event: Nintendo of America, Inc., The Bickerstaff Family Foundation, The TCW Group, Inc., The Walt Disney Company, Hollywood Video and Swarovski.

About Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation

A article that's a little late. [28 Feb 2006|09:34pm]
Dakota Fanning received thirty-three dozen roses from Tom Cruise today, her twelfth birthday, along with assorted literature promoting Scientology. A source close to Mr. Cruise who asked not to be identified explained that roses—twelve dozen white and twenty-one dozen red—have symbolic meaning.

"The white roses celebrate Ms. Fanning's age today, while the red roses represent her age on the day Tom takes her to his airplane for their first date."

I'm sorry I haven't posted lately but I am not the only one who has to post, you guys can too. My life has been getting more hectic with school and I still come here and update as much as I can because I said I could. but I would appreciate if you guys posted too =) Thank You for your time!

Article [22 Feb 2006|09:57pm]
Eleven-year-old Dakota Fanning (not only a huge fan of Shirley Temple, but probably the only child actress who stands a chance of equalling her) came on stage carrying a little doll of Shirley Temple in a sailor suit. She put the doll up on the podium and said that it had been given to her by her mother, and that she was going to give it to her own daughter someday. You could tell that Dakota really loved Shirley and was very excited to be helping present the Lifetime Achievement Award to her. (Her favorite Shirley movie is "Curly Top.") It was Jamie Lee Curtis actually presented the award to Shirley. Dakota and Shirley were never actually on stage together, but the cameras cut to Shirley several times during Dakota's speech, and when Dakota said that no other actress would ever capture as many hearts, Shirley did a little wave, pointed to Dakota, and mouthed "you."

Then a short film was played, chronicling the life of now 77-year-old Mrs. Shirley Jane Temple Black: her screen deubt in the "Baby Burlesks" films when she was only three-years-old, to her breakthrough role in "Stand Up and Cheer," her tap dances with Hollywood legends (including Bojangles Robinson, Buddy Ebsen, Alice Faye, Jack Haley, and others), her films as a teenager and young adult, her life as a wife and mother, and her later political career (she served on the United Nations and was the US ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.

Jamie Lee Curtis presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to Shirley and said that when she was a little girl, she knew that movies were fake since her own parents were actors, but she always believed that Shirley Temple's movie were real. "Since children are innocent until proven guilty, I believed she WAS the Little Princess, I believed she WAS Heidi!" Afterwards, Shirley took the stage while they played slow version of her hit song "On the Good Ship Lollipop." In her short but sweet acceptance speech, she said that she was out-of-breath from excitement and gave this advice to anyone who wanted to get their own Lifetime Achievement Award: "Start early!" She said that she had been excited to be an actress since she was only three-years-old and didn't even know what an actress was. She thanked everyone there, and she looked wonderful.

Dakota Fanning Talks About "Hide and Seek" [16 Feb 2006|08:03pm]
Dakota Fanning on Working with De Niro and Scary Movies

At the age of just 10, Dakota Fanning's acting resume is enough to make actresses who've been in the business for 20 years turn green with envy. Fanning's starred opposite Sean Penn in "I Am Sam," Denzel Washington in "Man on Fire," Kevin Bacon in "Trapped," and is currently filming "War of the Worlds" with Tom Cruise playing her dad. Lucky girl. With her starring turn in "Hide and Seek," Fanning adds Robert De Niro to the impressive list of big names actors she's appeared with in films.

In "Hide and Seek," Dakota Fanning plays Emily Callaway, a young girl who starts playing with an imaginary friend named Charlie as a way of dealing with her mother's sudden death.

Lots of kids have imaginary friends but Emily's new buddy's behavior takes a terrifying turn not usually associated with imaginary playmates. It's up to Emily's dad (De Niro) to figure out what's going on and who exactly is Charlie?
After finishing "Hide and Seek," Fanning began work on "War of the Worlds" and "Dreamer" with Kurt Russell, and has "Charlotte's Web" lined up as one of her next projects. And speaking of "War of the Worlds," if Spielberg's trying to keep what's happening on the set a closely guarded secret, he couldn't have selected a more close-mouthed young actress. Mention "War of the Worlds" and Fanning graciously sidesteps answering with anything other than the most generic of responses. Other than admitting they're filming it right now and that Tom Cruise is "so nice and amazing," Fanning smiled and giggled her way out of disclosing too much information.

According to Ford, no one embodies the new Hollywood better than Dakota Fanning. In an essay that will appear in the magazine, he wrote that she was "an ageless icon, like Elizabeth Taylor."

She is also a box-office force. Fanning makes $3 million a picture, and her films have grossed more than $650 million -- more than Reese Witherspoon, Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman.

"She has such a beautiful face," said Ford, who had Dakota photographed as an adult wearing Chanel couture. "She's growing up in such a beautiful way."

Ford said he tried to capture each actor's character. For instance, Anne Hathaway is photographed wearing a Victorian dress. She is, Ford said, like a John Singer Sargent painting.

Reputed ladies man George Clooney, who has earned a reputation as a talented director and screenwriter for "Good Night, and Good Luck" this year, is shot directing an imaginary set filled with women wearing nothing but underwear.

"It just seemed like every woman's dream, so that's what we did," Ford said.

According to Ford, Peter Sarsgaard, who starred in "Boys Don't Cry" and "Jarhead," is "one of the most fearless actors today." In the issue, Sarsgaard is photographed wearing a nice suit, but bound with Japanese bondage rope and suspended in midair.

"We spent about an hour tying him up and hanging him from the ceiling," Ford said.

Fanning: "Spielberg Taught Me More Than School"
28 June 2005 (WENN)
Child actress Dakota Fanning relished working with legendary director Steven Spielberg on War Of The Worlds, because he taught her more than she could have hoped to learn at school. The 11-year-old, who first grabbed attention starring alongside Sean Penn in I Am Sam aged only 7, always makes the most of the opportunities which come her way by remembering every scarp on new information she learns. She tells the New York Daily News, "I always think I might never have this opportunity again so I try to cram a lot of information into my brain. I still have my normal school where I learn about spelling and math and science and all that stuff, but I feel when I go on a movie set, I'm learning about movies. I learned 100 lessons a day from Steven. Everything that came out of his mouth, I thought, 'Okay, I have to remember that!'" And the Saving Private Ryan film-maker is equally as impressed with his young charge: "Dakota is unaware of how talented she actually is. During filming, she quickly understands each scene or situation, measures it against how she'd really react, and acts the truth every time."

An Add-on (Sorta) [06 Feb 2006|05:20pm]
Film wunderkind Temple honored
That's some voyage that "Good Ship Lollipop" has provided: from Santa Monica to Hollywood, all around the world and back again to a still-embracing Tinseltown. Shirley Temple Black, the child star turned U.S. ambassador and two-time Rose Parade grand marshal, added another laurel Sunday night when she accepted the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award.
The youngest performer to be awarded an Oscar in 1935 at the age of 6 (she also was given an honorary award in 1992), the 77-year-old Black has not acted since she hosted and performed in "Shirley Temple's Storybook" and "The Shirley Temple Show" in the late 1950s.
Introduced first by Dakota Fanning - who carried a Shirley Temple doll onstage - and later by Jamie Lee Curtis, Black largely downplayed her achievements, saying that above all else, she treasured her role as a "wife and mother."
How did Black, who was the box-office champ in the 1930s, manage to become a world-renowned icon? "Why was Rin Tin Tin the favorite dog star of that time?" Black asked. "I think times are reflection of what we're all going through," she continued. "Sometimes the picture is pretty, sometimes it's not attractive. I think I was in the right place at the right time." She also said that Fanning was a strong present-day torchbearer for child actors.
"I hugged her three times. We like each other," Black said of Fanning. "She's well taken care of and seems to be very sensible."
The daughter of a banker and a homemaker, Shirley Jane Temple was discovered in 1932 by director Charles Lamont and made her screen debut in his 1932 "What's to Do?" A curly-haired moppet who sang, tap-danced and expertly parodied her more celebrated co-stars, Temple contracted with the Fox Studios (later to become 20th Century Fox). In 1934 alone, she made 10 films, including "Baby Take a Bow," "Little Miss Marker" and "Bright Eyes," the film in which she first sang the song "On the Good Ship Lollipop."
Young though she was, Temple said she was well protected both within the industry and from the outside. "My sweet mother - she said go to work, as usual. There was nothing about Shirley Temple being anyone special," said Black. "I had two big brothers, one was in the FBI, the other a professional wrestler. So nobody bothered with me."
Eventually graduating to teen roles, she retired from show business in the early 1950s. In addition to an unsuccessful bid for a congressional seat in 1967, Black later became a diplomat, serving as the United States' ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.
