Stewart and Fanning first shared screen time in “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and became fast friends. “You can probably tell we get along really well,” Fanning said in between takes. “For the characters, it’s really important that bond is portrayed. And we have that in real life.”
Rather than talk up the more sensational aspects of filming — like, say, the scenes in which Fanning writhes and vamps onstage dressed in fishnet stockings and a revealing bodice — the actress chose to explain how she and Stewart (with castmates Taylor-Compton, Maeve and Shawkat) rehearsed the Runaways’ music together for a month before filming began. Stewart and Fanning then re-recorded the vocals for several of the songs heard in the film.
“When you’re up there and you hear yourself singing the songs and feel yourself performing the dance moves that are so iconic — when you’re up there having the time of your life — you feel like you are those girls for a few minutes,” Fanning said. “It’s really fun!”
