When she was nine-years-old Dakota Fanning starred in movies like Man on Fire and War of the Worlds with megastar actors like Denzel Washington and Tom Cruise. She also starred in the family-friendly movie Charlotte's Web in which her performance was so good that renowned film critic Roger Ebert compared her to Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver. She earned $4 million for her work in 2006 which seems like the highpoint of her career so far but she kept working in major movies, although in smaller parts like Jane, a member of the Volturi Guard, in New Moon and its sequel Eclipse. By 2009, Forbes estimated her net worth to be $14 million.
So when did it all start to go wrong for Fanning?
