Jaden Smith, Ansel Elgort & Elle Fanning Cover Variety's Power of Young Hollywood Issue

Jaden Smith, Ansel Elgort and Elle Fanning all cover Variety‘s Power of Young Hollywood issue, on stands now.

Here’s what the young stars had to share with the mag:

Jaden on always knowing he was different: “I’ve always looked at life differently. I always knew no one was going to understand me — since before I could talk — and that’s why I was so quiet. I was very calm, very to myself. I could tell I felt about life differently than other kids; I could tell by the way they treated me.”

Elle on the response to her films: “Some amazing movies have been torn apart in Cannes. But I’d definitely rather have a split response like love/hate than have audiences say, ‘Oh, that was fine.’”

Ansel on breaking out of his previous roles: “Young actors never get that opportunity. Otherwise my big commercial success would have been me being ‘Oh, you’re the brother in Divergent, right?’ There’s like no weight behind that character. I got lucky. And now a studio and a director will be able to say, ‘We can finance a movie with you in it and also you’ll do a good job.’”

Jaden on his clothing line MSFTS: “It’s pronounced ‘misfits.’ I took the ‘i’ out of ‘misfits’ because we’re a team and there is no ‘I’ in team. It’s a place for the lost kids and everyone to go, and something for them to have…the girl that wants to be a tomboy or the boy that wants to wear a skirt, and people try to condemn. We’re here for you. Tell us your stories. If someone at your school’s trying to pick on you, it doesn’t matter because Jaden Smith’s got your back.”

FYI: Elle is wearing Solid & Striped swimwear as a top on the cover.
