Maybe Kathy Griffin was right when she joked years ago that Dakota Fanning had been in rehab when she was five or six (Griffin lost her Red Carpet job for repeating the gag over and over).

Dakota Fanning A Diva From Hell, Claims Her Latest Director
Rowan Woods, the director of Fanning's upcoming film Winged Creatures, just gave an interview branding the young star as a "diva" whose scenes he had to cut:
Woods said his high profile cast was a pleasure to work with except for teenage starlet Dakota Fanning, who could be a diva on the set.
She initially refused to come out of her trailer on day one of shooting because her scene wasn't filmed first, and was "intensely jealous" of her young co-star Josh Hutcherson.
"Everyone was on their best behaviour on this film because they have got a `really serious Australian director who is known for his ensemble work'," Woods laughed.
"(Fanning) was the only one who was naughty."
Woods said while he thinks Fanning is a fine actor, on this film she didn't hit the mark.
"She is a gorgeous girl ... but she was the disaster," he said.
"There was something about her presence that wasn't ringing true.
"Most of our work was cutting her scenes and a lot of her scenes were cut."
