Dakota Fanning hopes to become a director when she grows up, after mastering a successful acting career as a pre-teen.
The 12-year-old War of the Worlds star admits she has closely studied the methods of her directors and hopes to hone a career behind the camera when she becomes an adult.
She says, "I would love to direct someday.
"I've learned a lot from watching directors I've worked with, like Steven Spielberg and Gary Winick, whom I worked with on CHARLOTTE'S WEB. I would love to have that relationship with another actor."
