Elle Fanning To Star as Writer Mary Shelley in 'A Storm In The Stars'

Elle Fanning To Star as Writer Mary Shelley in 'A Storm In The Stars'

Elle Fanning heads back to her ride after a dance class in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (July 30).

It was just announced that the 16-year-old actress will be portraying “Frankenstein” writer Mary Shelley in A Storm In The Stars.

According to THR, the period drama directed by Haifaa al-Mansour and produced by Amy Baer, tells the story of the passionate love affair between dangerously charismatic poet Percy Shelley and 17-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft, who would a year later write Frankenstein as Mary Shelley, a young woman out of step with her time who wrote one of the first pieces of literary genre fiction in modern times.

Elle is amazingly smart and talented and very much relates to Mary as a young woman,” Ms. Baer shared. “She is going to do something extraordinary in this role that will transition her from a compelling young adult to a formidable leading lady.”

These girls were cute when they were little and they have grown to be so plain and yucky looking. Their teeth are yellow and they look like they would reek of cat piss.

@lesbianest: jealous much?

# 6

Why she’s always naked? If one of those Kardashians young girls walk around like this everybody would’ve trashing them. I mean I’m not their fan obviously, just saying.

# 7

If Rihanna wore that same outfit she will be called out
Even Kendal or Kylie…so why are these blondes getting away with wearing a bra?

# 8

Elle is a very natural actor so I can’t wait to see her performance in this film given all the drama Mary Shelley went through

@anthrax: @Xoxo: She came out of a dance class. calm down, weirdos.

@anthrax: everyone would trash them because they are trash, this girl right here is just an ordinary actress living her life normally unlike the family you just mentioned

yeah right, double standarts anyone

@anthrax: @Xoxo: The difference is that Elle is leaving dance class and moving directly to her car. It’s not her fault that paparazzi are creeping on her and are taking those inappropriate pictures.
While Rihanna and the Kardashian girls sometimes post pictures where they are half naked on their own public instagram accounts, where they have millions of followers. So they clearly intend the whole world to see them like that.
