It seems that most actors and actresses have a penchant to direct. Kate Hudson finally realized her dream to get behind the camera, following the leads of Jennifer Aniston and Kirsten Dunst to the Glamour Magazine “Reel Moments” program.

Already in its third year, “Reel Moments” exists to empower women by producing female-friendly short films, while at the same time providing actresses the opportunity to try out directing.

Thanks to advertisers continuously looking for new methods of attracting viewers, Kristen Dunst, Kate Hudson and Rita Wilson will make their directorial debuts.

In this past January’s edition of “Glamour” magazine, readers were asked to submit real life stories that left other readers with a positive feeling. Dunst, Hudson, and Wilson selected the winners of the contest, and will turn their stories into short films. The total budget that “Glamour” is coughing up for the promotion is $500,000.

Believe it or not, the Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards are a force to be reckoned with. With celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Jessica Alba, Ben Stiller, and Orlando Bloom in attendance, the KCA command serious star power.

The show aired live on Nickelodeon on Saturday night and was hosted by Justin Timberlake. The winners of the Kids' Choice Awards are selected using all of the different Nickelodeon digital platforms, including voting online through Nick.com or even texting in votes, like they do on American Idol.

Child star Dakota Fanning, best known for her roles in films like 'Charlotte's Web' is in the middle of a controversy over a rape scene in her latest film 'Hounddog'.

The 12-year-old actress portrays a girl called Lewellen, who is raped by a teenager.

The hard-hitting movie written and directed by Deborah Kampmeier, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Tuesday, has been surrounded by complaints, with protests beginning before the festival.

The Catholic League, one of the protesting groups, has urged the US Department of Justice to investigate the film for possible violation of child pornography laws.

"It matters not a whit whether Fanning's mother, along with Fanning's teacher/child welfare worker, gave their consent," said the league's president William Donahue, who admitted he had not seen the film.

Dakota Fanning is Snow White this Halloween. The photos above were taken at the 13th Annual Dream Halloween® fundraiser at the Barker Hangar of the Santa Monica Airport. This event benefits the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation (CAAF). This fun-filled event was hosted by Jamie Lee Curtis.

I still think her Tinkerbelle dress would make a great Halloween costume though.

Dakota Fanning at the Country Music Television (CMT) "Giants" Event which honored country music legend, Reba McEntire.

She looks so different to me. Almost like she's aged by at least 4 years since I saw her oh about 6 months ago. My first impression of the dress Dakota Fanning is wearing in these photos was "Tinkerbelle!" Great for Halloween, she just needs a magic wand and some pixie dust. Wonder if she goes trick or treating?

I just love Dakota Fanning. When I saw her in Teen Vogue I was a little disturbed. She looks so dark and broody, where's the lively, sweet, happy girl we all know and love? Shouldn't she be in bubble gum pink and candy apple red.. laughing and smiling? Dakota sweetie please don't grow up too fast on us, we love you just the way you are. See more of the photos after the jump.
