Hi everyone!

We are currently looking for more people to help on Totally Elle. I’ll be stepping down, and Paige and Helena have been pretty busy, but we wanna do our best to ensure the site won’t be abandoned. It’s the first and longest running for Elle, and we know that many visitors have enjoyed its content through the years.

If you’re interested, please e-mail us at ellefanningnet@gmail.com. Just introduce yourself and let us know why you’d like to join the team. If you’ve never updated fansites before, we’d be glad to help you learn. We hope to hear from you soon!

On April 16, Elle visited The Late Late Show. Find pictures in the gallery and videos below :

 

Elle is featured in the digital magazine Who What Wear with a brand new interview! A new photoshoot was released along with the interview, and we’ve uploaded it to our photo gallery.

Unlike most actresses I interview, Elle Fanning is someone I’ve met before. During my time working at Rodarte, I spent time with the young teen on the set of photo shoots (like one lensed by Bill Owens), short videos, and fittings for red carpet appearances as she was carving out a path to become A-list star. On set, I would chat with Elle, and with her mother or grandmother, who always accompanied her to the projects she was filming. You could immediately sense how grounded, and very outside the Hollywood norm, they all were. This was perhaps best summed up when one day I received a box filled with a vintage vanity set (an elegant mirror, soapbox, and comb in retro pastel shades) and a handwritten note from Fanning—a rare and thoughtful gesture, especially from someone who didn’t yet have her driver’s license.

Fast-forward to 2019. It’s been at least five years since I’ve worked with Fanning, and her fame has only catapulted. She’s played Princess Aurora opposite Angelina Joie in Maleficent (with an upcoming sequel scheduled for release in October), starred in her second film directed by Sofia Coppola, and has been signed as the face of Miu Miu and L’Oréal.

As I arrive to meet with Fanning, I don’t expect the actress to recall our time working together years earlier, but as she walked in, she turned to give me a hug and one thing is immediately clear—she’s unlike most celebrities I’ve met.

Elle is on the cover of Teen Vogue’s Special Edition! She talks about her latest movie Teen Spirit, her love for singing and functioning under pressure. A new photoshoot was released along with the issue, and we’ve uploaded it to our photo gallery.

There’s a scene near the end of Elle Fanning’s new movie Teen Spirit where she performs Sigrid’s “Don’t Kill My Vibe” in the finals of a singing competition. Her character, Violet Valenski, the young daughter of a Polish immigrant, sees the contest as a way out of her small town, where her days are spent going to school, working in a restaurant to support herself and her mother, and taking care of her family’s goats and horses.

As Violet belts the song’s chorus, she tears the mic off the stand, throwing herself around onstage like Dua Lipa or Gwen Stefani (who has a song on the soundtrack). Violet puts those years of dancing in her room to “Just a Girl” to good use, eventually rising to the top, where she is confronted with the stakes of her burgeoning fame.

Violet is trying to achieve a lifelong dream, but in the finals, Elle transcends her character, fulfilling her own lifelong dream of being a singer. And as she loses herself in the song, wailing lyrics like “I throw myself from heights that used to scare me” with wild emotion, she’s also, well, us, embodying that hidden part of ourselves that yearns to be seen, to be recognized for what we can do and to be adored for it — and as we encounter success, to maintain some semblance of what made us unique in the first place.

That’s the conflict at the crux of Teen Spirit, a pop movie-musical that follows the introverted-outsider Violet’s journey through the rounds of an American Idol–type singing competition until she makes it to the finals. Written and directed by The Handmaid’s Tale actor Max Minghella, executive-produced by Jamie Bell, and produced by La La Land’s Fred Berger, Teen Spirit is a gritty commentary on what it takes to become a star while retaining some part of your original self.

Elle is aware that this kind of story is captivating for audiences, as evidenced by the number of films with similar arcs, like the aforementioned La La Land and the recent Lady Gaga–led remake of A Star Is Born. See also: Burlesque, Almost Famous, and even one of Elle’s other movies, The Neon Demon, where a young girl becomes a supermodel to terrifying consequences.

“It’s a fairy tale. A girl or boy from a small town enters the big city and has their first experience with stardom,” Elle tells Teen Vogue. “I don’t think people will ever really stop telling that story.”

Surprisingly, Teen Spirit was Elle’s first time really singing in a movie, in an already prolific career filled with indie flicks like How to Talk to Girls at Parties and 20th Century Women, Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled and Somewhere, and big-budget Disney hits like Maleficent, and its sequel slated for release later this year. At first Elle wasn’t considered for the role of Violet; she heard about Teen Spirit from a press release announcing Minghella as the director — not a traditional agent or casting call — and she reached out to set up a meeting.
