Elle Fanning: It Was Difficult to Perfect My 'Maleficent' Character

Elle Fanning dons a summery white dress as she takes a casual stroll with her boyfriend Dylan Beck while out and about on Sunday afternoon (June 1) in Los Feliz, Calif.

The 16-year-old actress recently opened up about about how she connects with her Maleficent character.

“I am a very energetic, excited person,” Elle told the L.A. Daily News. “I definitely do smile an awful lot, it’s kind of part of me. But also, this is a fairy tale, so it’s exaggerated, of course. No one can be that naïve.”

She continued, “But it was difficult to get my character right and not just make her the girl who is happy all the time. Even though she is so lovely, you want to give her a little more substance and depth. We worked on that, to make sure she was not someone you would just disregard.”
