Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning Defend Drug Use In 'The Runaways'
"I've been exposed to everything under the [sun]," Kristen said of her own upbringing, implying that teenagers are smart enough to see other people's mistakes and not necessarily follow in their footsteps. "I think that if you don't realize the people you look up to [are just acting, that's a problem]. This is also a really hard question for me."
