Elle Fanning Was 'Really Moved' By 'About Ray' Role

Elle Fanning wears a long denim dress while arriving to lunch on Saturday afternoon (August 22) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 17-year-old actress was spotted out earlier in the day, sharing a laugh with a friend after an early workout in Studio City.

Elle recently chatted with Out mag about taking on a transgender role in About Ray.

“It did make me very nervous when I was asked to do this film,” she shared. “It was a big responsibility. I was really moved by Ray’s story.”

Elle added, “I have a lot of transgender friends, so it was interesting for me to read this script and try to really understand the struggle of my friends and how they think and handle these issues. They are really incredible people.”

    Elle added, “I have a lot of transgender friends”. What? You are 17! I am 17 too and I don’t know and never met someone trans. Maybe she met them while researching for the role. Still…a weird quote. Or maybe Hollywood?

    I live in Israel were you have Jews and Arabs extremists (shortly: narrow -minded) still I had a boy in my class that was born a female.
    So If she leaves in LA I don’t doubt she has a lot of trans and gay friends.
    And she is right they are incredible people. The boy in my class was more gentelman than most men I’ve met…

    Another…lets push the “trans issue” on the public. Regardless the quality it is certain to get an Oscar nomination just because of the subject. Straight to DVD.

    The Fanning sisters are so overrated. I think Elle is quite boring as an actress and Dakota was great when she was a kid but I don’t remember the last time I saw her as an adult in a movie.

    oh please, there are horrible gay and trans people too. they’re all FABULOUS.
