“The Prep Rally is all about empowering our children to get prepared and feel safe,” said Erin Bradshaw, who leads Save the Children’s Get Ready Get Safe initiative. “Children are also wonderful at inspiring their families to take action. That’s especially important when we know the government is still behind in efforts to protect children from disaster.”

'About Ray' Director Reveals Why She Cast Elle Fanning In Transitioning Role

'About Ray' Director Reveals Why She Cast Elle Fanning In Transitioning Role

Elle Fanning heads out to the movies with boyfriend Zalman Band in Hollywood on Tuesday night (August 18).

While the cute couple headed to catch a flick on the big screen, the 17-year-old’s sister Dakota was seen out earlier in the day running a few errands.

“I could not have chosen a more blonde, more feminine actress who had a big a mountain to climb,” director Gaby Dellal told Refinery29 about casting Elle in About Ray. “And that’s what I’m interested in.”

She added about the role, “The part is a girl and she is a girl who is presenting in a very ineffectual way as a boy. She’s not pretending to have a deeper voice. She’s just a girl who is being herself and is chasing the opportunity to start hormone treatment. So to actually use a trans boy was not an option because this isn’t what my story is about.”
