It was a mini Runaways reunion
when Joan Jett, Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning came together Nov. 16 on the red carpet at the New Moon premiere at Mann’s Village Theatre in Westwood, Calif.
Joan showed up to support Kristen and Dakota on their big night — and we bet Kristen really appreciated her being there! Joan has become a mentor to Kristen, as she’s portraying the punk icon in an upcoming biopic about The Runaways. Dakota plays fellow bandmate, Cherie Currie.
“She’s so cool, one of the nicest, most soulful women I’ve ever met,” Kristen has said of Joan. “It’s an immense responsibility to play a real person, one of the most intimidating things that I’ve ever had to confront. Her story is an incredibly triumphant, feminist story.”
