Elle Fanning heads to the hair salon for an appointment on Tuesday afternoon (August 25) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Speaking with Out magazine, the 17-year-old opened up about how she prepared to take on the role of a transgender teen in About Ray — she watched YouTube!
“Some kids were telling me such personal things,” she shared. “It was really moving. I was a stranger, and they were opening up to me, and way more confident than I would be.”
Elle added, “On YouTube, I watched how they lit up — they were so happy about becoming who they are, so happy that they don’t have to hide anymore.”
