Dakota Fanning has jumped to the defence of her friend Kristen Stewart.

The 18-year-old actress, who stars in the Twilight films and also worked with Kristen in Joan Jett biopic The Runaways, talked to Instyle magazine about the scandal surrounding Kristen after it was revealed she had cheated on Robert Pattinson with Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

Dakota said: "Everyone thinks they have the right to, you know, publicise 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?'."

Meanwhile Kristen and Robert both appeared on different talk shows in the US to promote the final Twilight film, Breaking Dawn - Part 2.

K-Stew, 22, told Jay Leno how the shock ending to the film made her "giddy" while R-Patz, 26, joked with Jimmy Kimmel about a picture that emerged of him drilling his name into a table in a New York bar.

Both avoided talking about their relationship.

A cherished dream is elusive. It will be best to change gear, at least for the immediate future. Pursue a moneymaking opportunity with creative appeal. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
