Dakota's all grown up!

Despite her constant stream of film work (Hollywood took notice of her talent when she was just 6 years old in 2001's "I Am Sam") the "Twilight" star and her family have endeavored to maintain a somewhat "normal" childhood. She was part of the varsity cheerleading squad and was named homecoming queen two years in a row at Campbell Hall.

"I think it was really important to have the high school experience," she said on "Today" last fall. " I just think everyone always looks back on that time in their life. Who was homecoming princess and [did] the cheerleading ... and all the things that go along with high school? And I wanted to have that. I'm really lucky that I found a school that allows me to do both."
