Elle Fanning makes an abstract pose on the cover of the latest issue of Bullett magazine. In the inside spread – smudges of color cover over parts of the 14-year-old’s photos. Within the interview – Elle talks mostly about movies.
On working with Angelina Jolie on Maleficient: “I remember meeting her for the first time, and she gave me a big hug and said, ‘We’re going to have so much fun!’ And I was just like, Yay! She’s touching my body!”
On having fun and not having a stage mom: “You have to think it’s fun. That’s why I like to do it, you know. If you’re not having fun playing the character or with the people, what’s the point? The role definitely has to be something connected to me, and that reaches out to me. But also I want to make sure everyone’s supportive of it, obviously. My family makes sure it’s something I really want to do.”
On her shooting schedule: “When I’m doing movies, it’s only a couple months out of the year. We took five weeks to film Ginger & Rosa, and then I had a whole year to just be at home, back in the routine again, going to school, ballet after school—a whole normal thing. You can’t just be talking about your movie all the time.”
