Elle Fanning Says Kids Made Fun of Her 'Eccentric' Sense of Style

Elle Fanning Says Kids Made Fun of Her 'Eccentric' Sense of Style

Elle Fanning is on the cover of C Magazine, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary with a special issue.

Here’s what the 22-year-old actress had to say…

On starring in The Great: “There’s a very dark side to me that is irreverent and weird, that really likes to go there and push people’s buttons, that kind of likes to toe the line of what’s questionable. Making it felt cathartic, because it felt like I finally got to show that side.”

On her sense of style: “When I was young, I was allowed to be eccentric. My mom would let me put on crazy outfits and go to school. I think I had an appetite for it more than Dakota did. There are things that I would wear, and she would say, ‘That looks insane.’ Kids definitely made fun of me, but I didn’t care.”

On getting into producing, and her future in acting: “It’s a process. Your emails are flooded. You’re cc’d on a lot of things. I’m still finding my voice in it, but you learn that nobody has the right answers. You have to try so many things…I can’t think of not acting. Every day, they’re still picking me for jobs, and there are so many things I haven’t done.”

Elle is also going to be taking on this much-buzzed about role!
