Elle Fanning Talks Working With Angelina Jolie On Maleficent
The 15-year-old plays Sleeping Beauty in the Disney flick...
Elle Fanning has revealed what it was like working with Angelina Jolie on the set of their new film, Maleficent.
"It was super exciting," Elle told E! News. "Everything was so fun. I think working with Angelina so much it's kind of a dream to say that you even met her and let alone to be in scenes with her was really, really cool."
The teen actress – whose big sister is Dakota Fanning – also got to observe Angie’s process during their time together.
“She really got into her character in a way. Like she was very, so into the details of her clothes,” Elle recalled.
“She came into rehearsals on the first day...with her Maleficent staff and she was in normal clothes but then had that. And she was like 'I have to get used to it it's part of my character.' I thought that was so cool."
Despite her tender years, Elle has been acting for over a decade. Her first role was playing a younger version of big sis Dakota in the film I Am Sam, when she was just three years old.
But the star is looking forward to turning sixteen today, telling E! yesterday: “Sweet sixteen it's the big one!"
"I'll be in school tomorrow which is kind of exciting too because your friends will bring you cupcakes. But yeah, I had a dinner before because I wanted my sister to be in town so we had something a couple months ago, but tomorrow I'll probably just eat cake and go out to eat."
