Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Maleficent Star Elle Fanning!
In MALEFICENT, the incredible Angelina Jolie plays the “evil queen” to the young and innocent Aurora played by Elle Fanning. After watching this magical recreation of the Walt Disney classic SLEEPING BEAUTY, it struck me just how gifted the Fanning family is. Elle – who was outstanding in Sofia Coppola’s SOMEWHERE as well as J.J. Abrams SUPER 8 – is a perfect princess in this modern tale. She is delightfully charming and gives a sense of warmth and heart opposite Ms. Jolie.
This is the second time I’ve had the opportunity to interview this young and incredibly talented actress. In several years she has certainly matured, yet she is just as pleasant and good-natured as before. Her energy is infectious as is her performance in the film. During our interview she discussed why exactly this was the perfect Disney princess for her to portray, and working with such a legendary leading lady. Are you ready for a little magic? Check out MALEFICENT this Friday at a theatre near you.
