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.”

    How is her top not see through? It doesn’t look like she’s wearing a bra either. Overall, I think the movie was luke warm. Her character was weak. I wish this movie wasn’t produced by Disney. If it wasn’t it would have been darker, better, and even more over the top with the evil. It got really boring about 40 mins in.

    Why is this Elle Fanning appearing everywhere? Did her parents sell her soul to pay off a bad loan?

    @Amy Lee Christian: She’s seen everywhere because she’s popular right now, especially because of her role in Maleficent, but also because she’s a really wonderful actress. You don’t often see other teenagers like her in Hollywood who’s as down to earth as she is, which is something that the people likes and wants at the moment. She’s a breath of fresh air
    @uckme:
    Not any sooner than most teenagers these days
