The rocker said she's pleased -- and with more than just the haircut.

"I thought she had a quiet intensity," Jett said at a Sundance round table discussion in support of the film. "The physical stuff ... just the way we move in space. We shake our legs, our hands are all over."

And those signature moves? "She just studied me, man."

Indeed, Stewart spent a few weeks at band camp to get a feel for the guitar, as Fanning did to master the mike.

So -- will the actresses be pursuing musical careers of their own?

"No," Stewart said, shaking her head at the idea. Looking to Fanning, she cracked, "We're not packaging this deal."
