Elle Fanning Says She Feels Most at Home on the Red Carpet

Elle Fanning is glowing on the cover of Elle Australia‘s November issue, on sale Monday (October 21)!

Here’s what the 21-year-old Maleficent: Mistress of Evil actress had to share with the mag:

On her Cannes Film Festival looks and her love of Old Hollywood glamour: “At Cannes, you can go big and that’s what I wanted. I wanted to do separates, and I asked Dior if they would be into a ball skirt and shirt situation, and it morphed into the New Look. We added the hat very last-minute. It was exciting because I’m very nostalgic of the ’50s and ’60s. Old Hollywood glamour is so classic, I wish it would come back.”

On feeling most at home on the red carpet: “I dressed really crazy at school. So obviously people weren’t necessarily going to be like, ‘You’re so cool.’ The red carpet was like a home for me—from a young age, the fashion community embraced me. The red carpet felt safe. I don’t feel judged on it—I feel free to express that side of myself. It’s such a creative outlet, something I could really take control of.”

On how Disney princesses have evolved: “When I was young I watched all the animated Disney films, and they’re beautiful in their own way, but the women aren’t extremely complex and they do rely on the men a lot. The modern fairytale with a twist is so important.”

On working with her older sister Dakota Fanning: “We’d love to do something together… It would be great, because we don’t really talk about each other’s work. … She knows what I’m thinking, and she’s the best advice giver. As we get older, we get to be good friends.”

Elle Fanning Annoys Sister Dakota in Hilarious Halloween Throwback Video

Elle Fanning and Dakota Fanning get ready for Halloween in this adorable throwback video!

The 21-year-old Maleficent: Mistress of Evil actress shared the clip of herself and the 25-year-old Once Upon a Time In Hollywood star on Instagram on Saturday (October 19).

In the clip, Dakota – in a furry pink top and headpiece with cat ears – does her makeup as a younger Elle goes through her makeup bag.

“What is this?” Elle asks, holding up an eyebrow brush.

“It’s for your eyebrows!” Dakota Fanning replies sternly. “And you’re not allowed to do it. Go get your wig back on!”

Elle then proceeds to put on her big red wig, proclaiming, “I did it.”

“Getting ready for a girl’s night out with @dakotafanning #halloween #gogetyourwigbackon,” Elle Fanning captioned the video.

Angelina Jolie & Elle Fanning Visit London School Girls on International Day of the Girl

Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie mark International Day of the Girl by meeting up with school girls!

The Maleficent: Mistress of Evil co-stars, ages 21 and 44, respectively, joined students from the Mulberry School for Girls on Friday (October 11) in London, England.

Ten young students from the renowned school were invited to take part in a special meet-and-greet which gave them the opportunity to ask the two leading actresses questions which they had composed themselves.

The topics included the importance of diverse female roles, the increasing pressures that social media has on young people, and how every girl deserves the right to an education.

International Day of the Girl is an international observance day declared by the United Nations. The day aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while promoting girls’ empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights.

Elle Fanning Recalls Going Paintballing With Angelina Jolie: 'She's Really Good!'

Elle Fanning‘s blue eyes pop on the cover of InStyle‘s November 2019 issue.

Here’s what the 21-year-old Maleficent: Mistress of Evil actress shared with the mag:

On working with Angelina Jolie and Michelle Pfeiffer: “When I heard that Michelle was going to be in the film, I realized that the second movie is going to be about power. It’s about three generations of women in power and how they represent it in different ways. And, with Angelina, I was so young when I did the first film with her. I was very nervous then. My mom was with me. Now that I’m grown up, she sees me in a different way. We talked about different things. We went paintballing. Oh, she’s aggressive. [laughs] We would do outings because her kids were there, so she was trying to schedule activities on the weekends. I had never gone paintballing before. We were in full-on armor. We were the only people in the place, with all of her kids. She and I were not on the same team. I was so bad. I hit their security guard in the neck, and he was on my team! [laughs] Angelina’s really good.”

On being asked to politically engage publicly: “Sometimes I feel like I don’t know all the information. Like, am I qualified to speak on this? But I also think it’s OK for people to say that they don’t know or aren’t sure yet. Angelina [Jolie] said that to me after a recent interview we did for Maleficent 2. She said, “You know what? It’s OK not to answer things.” I mean, I’m still learning.”

On continuing to be starstruck: “I also love seeing celebrities. I’m not jaded by that at all. I met Beyoncé at the Met Ball the first year that I was there [in 2011, when she was 13]. I totally freaked out over that. Leonardo DiCaprio, I totally freaked out over him too.”

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil premieres on October 18th. Elle‘s cover of InStyle hits newsstands that same day.
