Elle Fanning Spit On & Made Out With Extras While Filming 'How to Talk to Girls at Parties!'

Elle Fanning lays in the grass for her dreamy new cover shoot for Net-a-Porter’s weekly digital magazine, PorterEdit.

Here’s what the 20-year-old Beguiled actress had to share with the mag:

On how she used to be mistaken for her sister, Dakota Fanning: “I haven’t been mistaken for [Dakota] in a while, which is pretty cool, because it definitely used to happen all the time.”

On “making out” with punks for the movie How to Talk to Girls at Parties: “All of the extras were real punks who were [director] John [Cameron Mitchell]’s friends. I was terrified. John just wanted to get me out of my shell. He’s like, ‘Okay, spit on them!’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, my God!’ But eventually we were literally spitting on each other. And when I jumped on his friend, Donna, he was like, ‘Jump on Donna and make out with her! Make out with as many people as you can in the crowd!’ And I’m like, okay! Anything for John! […] People might not think that I have that side. It’s a wild side but a healthy wild side. With child actors, people sometimes think, ‘Ooh, evil wild side!’ No, it’s not. It’s just being a teenager.”

On the shooting in Parkland, Florida, that led to the March For Our Lives demonstration: “With those students, I can’t even imagine what they’re going through. If I was going to school right now, I would be terrified. Nobody deserves to be scared in their own classroom. But it’s so great to see young voices finally being heard.”

On meeting Beyonce at the Met Ball: “I get star-struck quite a lot. I met Beyonce and Jay-Z at the Met Ball… I was star-struck by everybody, I was staring at people like a freak but I had so much fun.”

Nicole Kidman & Elle Fanning Are Punk Aliens in 'How to Talk to Girls at Parties' Trailer - Watch Now!

Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning transform into punk rock-loving extraterrestrials in the new trailer for How to Talk to Girls at Parties!

The 50-year-old Big Little Lies star and the 19-year-old The Beguiled actress appear in the trailer released on Tuesday (April 3).

Directed by John Cameron Mitchell and based on a short story by Neil Gaiman, the musical rom-com also stars Alex Sharp, Ruth Wilson, and Matt Lucas.

Here’s the synopsis: “Enn (Alex) is a shy suburban London teenager in 1977, sneaking out with his best friends to after-hours punk parties. One night they stumble upon a bizarre gathering of sexy teenagers who seem like they are from another planet. In fact, they are from another planet, visiting Earth to complete a mysterious rite of passage.”

“That doesn’t stop Enn from falling madly in love with Zan (Elle), a beautiful and rebellious alien teenage who, despite her allegiance to her strange colony, is fascinated by Enn. Together they embark on a delirious adventure through the kinetic punk rock world of 1970s London, inadvertently setting off a series of events that will lead to the ultimate showdown of punks vs. aliens, and test the limits of how far each of them will go for true love.”

How to Talk to Girls at Parties is set to hit theaters on May 18.
