Elle was only three and a half years old when she attended her first Hollywood premiere so the movies, the spotlight and the attention are not a new thing to her. She is very devoted to her sister and she says she is her favorite actress, along with Meryl Streep and Jodie Foster. She really can't do wrong with influences like that.
She also loves Marilyn Monroe. In the interview for Interview magazine she said: "I love her look and everything. But I've seen The Seven Year Itch and I loved that. I watched that all the time when I was little. I liked the dress. I was her for Halloween when I was 7. I did the makeup and the mole and I did all the poses with blowing kisses and all that. But also, of course, I'd love to do something with my sister. I've never really acted with her before. I've played her at a younger age, but we've never been in the same scenes together."
Elle's upcoming films include "A Pure Life" where she will be staring opposite Vera Farmiga, "Bomb" set in the 60's in London (incidentally, Fanning loves 60's inspired fashion), "Vivaldi" where she will play one of his young students and the biggest production of them all - "Maleficent" where she will play Sleeping Beauty - Aurora, who is hated by the Evil Queen played by Angelina Jolie.
What I love the most about Elle Fanning is her uncanny ability to play a strong and magnetic characters, without losing her inner subtlety. She is never annoying, phony or unconvincing in her performances, unlike many other teenage actresses. And she already worked for many famous and well respected directors - Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Francis Ford Coppola and David Fincher. With a start like that , I really can't wait to see what performances she will be giving in the future. I'm certain of one thing - they will be extraordinary.
