Elle Fanning Opens Up About the Pitfalls of Instagram: 'It Is A Little Scary'

Elle Fanning looks so sweet on the cover of the latest issue of Teen Vogue, available now.

The 20-year-old actress opened up about training for her new movie Teen Spirit, Instagram and being authentic. Check it:

On training with a vocal coach for her role in Teen Spirit: “I’ve always wanted to sing in a film. Singing was something I’ve always loved to do, but I’ve never really gotten to showcase that part of myself. This was a lot more singing than I’ve ever done before…The stamina is a huge challenge, but I worked forever.”

On realizing the importance of authenticity for successful pop artists, like Ariana Grande: “The best pop artists are the ones that are the most authentic…On her most recent album [Thank u, next], you can tell that somebody didn’t tell her to release that; it’s from the heart. She wanted to do that and wrote those songs herself, and it’s more personal.”

On the pitfalls Instagram users can fall into: “I find myself curating [my] life. Sometimes you have to remind yourself [not to think], ‘Oh, wow, this girl’s body!’ Our minds are looking at more images than ever before — the instant gratification of it is a little scary. The other day when there was a little Instagram blackout, everybody was like, ‘No! What’s happening?’ But one day you know it’s going to have to crash. It’s not going to be around forever.”
