Relax, it's all for their new film 'Very Good Girls'

Very Good Girls is about two best friends Lilly (Dakota Fanning) and Gerry (Elizabeth Olsen) who make a pact to lose their virginity before going to college. Things get a little complicated when they both fall for the same ice-cream guy and become, well, not so good girls.

We're expecting Dakota and Elizabeth to cat it out over ice-cream guy, played by Boyd Holbrook (Liz's real-life fiancé, by the way). Of course there should be space for reconciliation later. Ah, what is growing up but having a crush on the same guy as your best friend?

The film also stars Demi Moore, Peter Sarsgaard and (hey, Agent Coulson) Clark Gregg. We're used to seeing Dakota on the silver screen, but we couldn't be happier that Elizabeth's career is making a steady ascent (you can't have missed her in Godzilla). She'll next be seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Directed by Naomi Foner who is Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal's mum, by the way, Very Good Girls premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2013, but it will finally be released in US cinemas this July.
