Elle Fanning in Teen Vogue. On dressing for herself: ‘Well, I want a boy to like my weird style. If he doesn’t, then he’s not the right person for me. Because if you start dressing one way and it’s not truly you, then you have to stick to it. Otherwise, you wear your weird thing and then he’s like, “What’s that?” and you’re like, “Well, I like it!” And then you are in an uncomfortable situation.’
On makeup: I just feel like it’s better, looking fresh. It’s also sexier not wearing any makeup at all. Like, honestly, if you talk to guys, they’ll all think that.”
On Angelina Jolie: ‘When I met her, she gave me a huge hug and she took my shoulders and said, ‘We are going to have the best time working together!’ And we did—we had the best time! She has a huge presence.
She would walk around set all the time with her giant Maleficent staff because she said she had to get used to it—she said it had to become a part of her, since Maleficent and the staff are so connected. Everyone would just stare at her! With the cheekbones, the staff just made her more like.. ’Oh my god!’’
Items she can’t live without: ‘My Barbie calendar in my room. I put all the details of my day on it. And…it’s so weird, but I save gum wrappers. Like, I have thousands of Double Bubble and Bazooka. I put them all in a Chanel shoe box.’
