Dakota Fanning starred in Twilight and The Runaways with Kristen Stewart and in the process developed a close friendship with the actress, so she didn't hesitate to defend her pal in the newest InStyle magazine when the cheating scandal was brought up.

    "Everyone thinks they have the right to, you know, publicize the struggles and sadness and heartbreak and all of that. It's like, 'Why do you think you are the authority to judge people's experiences?' she explained.

When it comes to her own relationships, the award-winning star's approach is to keep her personal life private. The blonde covergirl confesses she's only had one boyfriend in her life and is currently single.

    "You know, I'm not the kind of girl or person who really wants boyfriends in my life. I'm also the kind of person... I'm very black and white in what I feel and I don't wanna be with someone that I don't foresee spending a long time with," she adds.

It's refreshing to see a child star mature in the limelight and avoid the usual pitfalls of fame!
