Dakota Fanning swaps Hollywood for high school

She has played a vampire and a rock star and has been a household name since she shot to fame at the tender age of seven.

But Hollywood actress Dakota Fanning is still very much a down-to-earth, all-American girl-next door.

The 16-year-old actress received one of the biggest accolades an American teenage girl could get after she was crowned Homecoming Queen at her high school on Monday.

It was also the second year running that Fanning who is also on the cheerleading squad and the school's American Football team's quarterback were made Homecoming King and Queen at the private high school, Campbell Hall Episcopal in North Hollywood.

Fanning and her unknown King beamed broadly for the cameras as they were both draped in sashes and given crowns, while she also received a bunch of roses.

Homecoming is an annual tradition in the US which welcomes back former residents and alumni of a high school or university and includes a day of activities including a sports match and a parade through the town or city.

The day also has a Homecoming Court, consisting of a group of students that are crowned King, Queen and Prince and Princess.

Usually the King and Queen are students in their last year of study and are voted for by classmates in a secret ballot.

She said: "I have such a normal life when I'm not working...It's just nice to be around people you care about and who know you best."
