Elle Fanning Covers InStyle's 'Your Look' Mag

Elle Fanning‘s blue eyes are simply mesmerizing on the cover of InStyle‘s Your Look mag.

Here’s what the 17-year-old About Ray actress had to share:

On her new movie, About Ray, about a transgender teen: “I know a lot of transgender teens from school… Some people transitioned over the summer, and when they came back, they told us what pronouns to use. My friends and I are very open about it and very accepting, but obviously it’s not always the case in other states or other schools. That’s why this movie is so important. When I took the role, I knew it would be the most challenging part I’ve ever done. But I also realized it could help raise visibility for these kids, so I was really honored to be asked.”

On what she’ll wear to the prom: I want to be in yellow. Pale butter, since everyone else will wear black.”

On her sartorial role model: “I am big on Tilda Swinton! She’s unbelievable. Her hair! Her suits! She looks ethereal. Tilda would make a great tooth fairy.”

FYI: Elle is wearing an Emilia Wickstead dress.

Elle Fanning Says 'It Sucks' That Transgender Phobia Is Still A Problem

Elle Fanning arrives at the hair salon for an appointment on Tuesday afternoon (August 25) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Speaking with Out magazine, the 17-year-old actress shared her own experience with dealing with the topic of being transgender.

“In my school, I would say we’re very accepting,” Elle shared, “but you hear about all these hate crimes, and you realize it is still really bad.”

She added, “It just sucks that it’s still a problem. The thing is that so many people are afraid to ask the questions. If you have a question, go find the answer. And try to be a compassionate, caring person. Why should anyone care if someone is just trying to be themselves?”

Elle Fanning Had A 'Big Mountain To Climb' For 'About Ray', Director Says

Elle Fanning walks side by side boyfriend Zalman Band while heading to the movies in Hollywood on Tuesday night (August 18).

Earlier in the day, the 17-year-old actress’ older sister Dakota was seen running a few errands around town.

“I could not have chosen a more blonde, more feminine actress who had a big a mountain to climb,” director Gaby Dellal told Refinery29 about casting Elle in About Ray. “And that’s what I’m interested in.”

She added about the role, “The part is a girl and she is a girl who is presenting in a very ineffectual way as a boy. She’s not pretending to have a deeper voice. She’s just a girl who is being herself and is chasing the opportunity to start hormone treatment. So to actually use a trans boy was not an option because this isn’t what my story is about.”
