Child actors and actresses really don’t get to enjoy childhood, like their non Hollywood peers. While most kids are playing with friends or participating in sports, child stars are cultivating their work ethic at tender ages. American actress, Elle Fanning is no different. Her career began before she was 3 years of age, in 2001. 15 years and 29 movie roles later, the 17 year old is still busy honing her craft. When her career began, she was overshadowed by older sister and fellow actress, Dakota, but now, she is really coming into her own. With her pale blonde hair, blue eyes and cream colored skin, she is a vision of beauty. As the pretty actress nears her 18th birthday, she is reflecting on her lost youth and trying to hold onto a bit of the young girl still within.
Yes it is true, the child star who is known for her distinct look and expert acting skills is not little girl anymore. Elle is breathtaking as she graces the 2016 March cover of Vogue Australia. In addition to the cover spot, Elle was also interviewed and provided a little insight into what being Elle is all about.
The young actress will be turning 18 this April 2016, but says she isn’t quite ready to completely grow up. She wants to keep something from the girl she has always been inside.
In fact, the young star still enjoys being the younger sister of actress Dakota Fanning, who is now 21. The two are very close, and Elle often asks her older sister for advice because she looks up to her so much.
Although she claims she wants to stay and be a girl forever, Elle possesses a wisdom beyond her years. She is one of the few celebrities that doesn’t have a public Instagram account. She thinks that oversharing can be detrimental and believes that retaining a little mystery is important when defining your image.
Elle is a very busy actress with a hectic schedule, so you will have ample opportunity to see her on the silver screen. You will be able to see Elle in a variety of new films like ‘About Ray’ where she plays the role of a teenage girl on her journey to becoming a boy, 20th Century Woman, or The Neon Demon, a horror film about the fashion industry.
