Elle Fanning Says Filming 'The Beguiled' Was Like Going to College

Elle Fanning floats underwater on the cover of Dazed‘s Summer 2017 issue, available now.

The 19-year-old actress and her The Beguiled co-star Kirsten Dunst opened up about their friendship, having fun on set and being away from home.

Elle on how filming The Beguiled was like college: “My mom normally goes with me to set, so this was the first time I went alone. Once you turn 18, you don’t have to have anyone with you. It was kind of special, in a weird way – like going off to college, the first time leaving home and having that experience. And my mom knows Sofia and Kirsten, so she felt comfortable. I felt very independent.”

Elle on her friendship with Kristen: “Kirsten and I turned to each other on set one day and we were like, ‘I love you.’ And then we were like, ‘We love each other!’ It’s so funny, because we were both child actors and we share certain similarities (in) the way that other people see us. But also our personalities complement each other in such a way that we were like, ‘Our souls are connected.’”

Kristen on having fun on set: “It’s hard not to when you’re on set with a bunch of women who are also friends. You’re bound to have too much fun sometimes.”
