Dakota Fanning's Busy Decade (PHOTOS)

Dakota Fanning is having a big weekend. She is on Friday's "Late Show" with David Letterman to promote the two movies she stars in that both open this weekend (scroll down for a clip). She is the lead voice in 3-D family film "Coraline" as well as a star of the sci-fi thriller "Push" with Chris Evans and Djimon Hounsou.

Fanning, who turns 15 later this month, burst onto the scene in 2001 when she held her own onscreen with Sean Penn in "I Am Sam." Since then she's worked with Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, Mike Myers and more. She's also carried films, picked up awards and traveled the world.
