The Beautiful Swans

It’s not easy to transition from being a childhood actor into an adult one. It can either make or break a career and many have disappeared entirely after this change. Metamorphizing on the big screen is difficult especially when your fans are conditioned to your cute & cuddly not the sprouting peach-fuzz or developing feminine peeks. Still there are a talented few who crumbled those barriers and became successful young adult actors…the two that comes to my mind is Drew Barrymore and Dakota Fanning.

Growing up with Drew has been an awesome ride! I remember the first time I seen her on the big screen with those cute little pigtails in E.T. The Extra Terrestrial. She was adorably innocent. Since then, Drew Barrymore has led and survived a rock star’s lifestyle. Regardless of the bumps and bruises she underwent, Drew has developed into a well-respected actress and executive producer. Scoring a Golden Globe for her portrayal as Little Edie on Grey Gardens, Drew has continued to flourish with adding another notch on her belt as a Director with Whip It. Can’t wait to see what’s next on the agenda for Ms. Barrymore!

Dakota Fanning has appeared in many small roles but her most noticeable feature was Man On Fire with Denzel Washington. Although Dakota is a pretty, blond-haired, blue-eyed girl, she has shattered the ditz cliché and has become an exceptional actress. Her performances are always stellar which is another indication of a promising future…is this a Meryl Streep in the making? Just getting her feet wet with successful films like, I Am Sam, The Secret Lives of Bees and New Moon is proof that my predictions are correct! Dakota’s upcoming flicks… Eclipse and The Runways are must-sees. I’m confident that Ms. Dakota will continue to dazzle us!
