Rock 'n Roll rebels and teen stars came together in an unlikely pairing in Park City, Utah this weekend at the Sundance Film Festival premiere of 'The Runaways.'
The biopic, which tells the story of "jailbait rock" band The Runaways, stars some of Hollywood's most recognizable young faces, including Kristen Stewart, playing Joan Jett, Dakota Fanning, who plays Runaways lead singer Cherie Currie, and 'Arrested Development' actress Alia Shawkat.
The evening before the premiere, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts performed to a packed crowd at the Harry O's concert series. People reports that during the band's performance, Jett brought Stewart and Fanning onstage, thanking them for their performances in the film.
Stewart showed equal excitement for the festival, telling MTV, "The coolest thing about Sundance is coming back and seeing the people you made the movies with...Everyone on 'The Runaways,' we became really close. Me and Dakota are really close. I love that she can see [my other Sundance film 'Welcome to the Rileys'] with me."
The following day, the actresses and their real-life counterparts posed for photos on the red carpet at the film's premiere.
