“We actually pride ourselves on the lack of historical accuracy,” says Fanning of bawdy, satirical and not-so-accurate tale from the writer behind ‘The  Favourite.’

Lying atop the red velvety covers of an ornate four-poster bed in a gold-soaked set on a rainy day in London, a sickly looking Nicholas Hoult takes swigs from a bottle of water between takes.

“Men love me for my parties, women and … [gulp] … delicious food,” he splutters moments later after the camera begins rolling (bottle now hidden under the blanket), groaning and retching while Elle Fanning, in a corseted light-green gown and tightly curled blond wig, stands at his feet, feigning concern.

“And women love me for my massive cock.”

Welcome to the world of The Great, Hulu’s bawdy, satirical and not exactly (in many cases, not remotely) historically accurate retelling of the early years of Russia’s famed 18th century monarch Catherine the Great.

“We actually pride ourselves on the lack of historical accuracy,” says Fanning with a laugh, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter during the Nov. 26 set visit from a room just around the corner, this one littered with ornate chairs (most protected by plastic sheeting). In her first TV role, Fanning plays the pre-Great royal as a fresh-faced 20-year-old thrown into the “bonkers” universe of her feeble-minded, mistress-loving emperor husband, Hoult’s Peter III, and the maneuvering and plotting that would see her — eventually — ascend the throne.

“He’s a bad guy, but I don’t dislike him,” says Hoult, adding that The Great’s somewhat casual approach to the truth meant he didn’t feel the need to read up on his character, as he normally would for such a role. “He’s up-front and honest, and that is kind of likable. Sure, he does terrible things, but he’s very open about it.”

Later on in the scene, Peter III ruminates on the things he hoped to achieve in his lifetime as ruler, including renaming July after himself.

“Each line of dialogue is something you’ll probably never get to say on another show, or any other time,” says Hoult with a laugh.

On IMDb’s new podcast, ‘Movies That Changed My Life,’ the star of Hulu’s ‘The Great’ opens up on just that — the films she watched growing up that influenced her career.

Elle Fanning is allergic the phrase “strong female characters.”

That’s what the star of Hulu’s new MRC-produced series The Great explained on the latest episode of IMDb’s newly launched podcast Movies That Changed My Life.

“What does that mean?” Fanning asked, in reference to her character Catherine, as in Cathering the Great, to host Ian de Borja, best known for his work on The IMDb Show. She wanted to show all sides to the historical figure, who gets a reimagining in the Tony McNamara-created series in which she stars opposite Nicholas Hoult. “I was really aware that I wanted to humanize her. She makes mistakes; sometimes she waivers, sometimes she’s weak and sometimes she’s incredibly brave. There’s room for that on TV — to have complicated female characters.”

There’s nothing complicated about Movies That Changed My Life. The weekly series features actors and filmmakers discussing the movies that inspired them and helped launch their careers. The podcast joins other popular IMDb original video series including The IMDb Show, IMDbrief and What to Watch. The inaugural episode features Westworld’s Jeffrey Wright, who was followed by Joel McHale, Judy Greer, Felicia Day and Kevin Smith.

New episodes come out every Thursday wherever podcasts are found, including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, IMDb.com/podcasts and through IMDb’s iOS and Android apps.

Says Nikki Santoro, head of IMDb Consumer: “These personal and in-depth conversations with our customers’ favorite actors and filmmakers will reveal the defining moments in their lives, ultimately providing listeners with a greater understanding of their favorite performers, as well as recommendations for new films to add to their IMDb Watchlists.”

On the episode with Fanning, she also dishes on her upcoming film The Nightingale, a role that put her opposite sister Dakota for the first time in their careers; how the first time she watched The Neverending Story was with Bijou Phillips at Sean Lennon’s apartment next to John Lennon’s piano; and how she would dress up as the iconic Sandy while watching Grease.

At 21, she’s already a seasoned Hollywood pro. This month, she adds YA romance All the Bright Places on Netflix to her impressive oeuvre, with even greater things to come.

I meet Elle Fanning in a London hotel restaurant, where she jumps up to hug me the minute I arrive. It is noon on Sunday, “so should we order breakfast or lunch?” she asks the waiter, who is just as uncertain. He says she probably knows the menu better than he does by now, given that she’s been living here for six months while filming Hulu’s forthcoming show The Great, about Catherine the Great. I tell her I want this interview to be a natural conversation rather than a recitation of a list of questions. “Oh, good,” she says, her blond hair falling onto the straps of her babydoll petticoat dress, a smudge of last night’s mascara under one eye. “Interviews terrify me! No matter how comfortable you feel or how lovely the person, it’s still like, what I say is gonna be out there forever.”

Fanning began her career at age two, playing the younger version of her elder sister, Dakota Fanning, in various screen productions. By the age of four, she was winning her own parts, such as a cheeky preschooler in the Eddie Murphy film Daddy Day Care. (I rewatched it recently; you can already see the talent in the wide-eyed, imaginative kid who seems to be following the script intuitively.) By 2005, she was playing the child of Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett’s characters in Babel, reuniting with the pair three years later in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Her grandmother homeschooled her and chaperoned her on film and TV sets. (Her mom did the same with Dakota.) Yet in Fanning’s mind, she tells me, she was still simply playing. At home, initially in Georgia until the family moved to L.A. for the girls’ work, she and Dakota were “always dressing up and having these elaborate fantasies that we would play out,” so she hadn’t fully understood this was also a career. When Fanning was nine and cast as a girl with Tourette’s syndrome in Phoebe in Wonderland, she was taken by the director to meet children with the same condition for research. Something clicked, and she could almost see her future. “I realized, Oh, this is a job, and I’m telling someone’s story, and there is a responsibility of getting it right,” says Fanning.

She is such easy company, with a certain bubbly innocence. You can see why Disney cast her as Princess Aurora against Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent. It’s a role she first took on at age 14, but she’s 21 now, and after doing last fall’s sequel, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, she and Jolie are on different terms. “Angelina’s and my relationship definitely changed. She didn’t have to look at me as a kid; she didn’t have to censor what she could talk about.” She laughs. “That was exciting, to have that relationship.”

Five years after first meeting, Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning strengthened their bond on the sequel to 2014’s hit movie Maleficent.

The two reunite for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, out Friday, with Fanning’s Aurora all grown up and facing different problems than she did as a younger child in the 2014 original. And just like the movie, Fanning, 21, says her relationship with Jolie, 44, changed now that she’s in her twenties.

“I’m older, and the things we can talk about now are different,” Fanning tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, on stands Friday. “I feel like I can ask her anything—and I have!”

“Watching her is so inspiring,” Fanning adds. “As a person, she has a such a strength in her convictions. She really stands up for what she feels is right and will protect you at all costs. I’ve truly seen that — her nurturing and protective instincts. It’s so beautiful.”

The feeling is mutual, with Jolie opening up to PEOPLE about the special place Fanning has carved in her life.

“The first moment she ever saw me, she was 14 and she ran up and gave me the biggest hug. Elle was the sweetest. Nothing about me intimidated her,” Jolie recalls of their first meeting. “I’ll always feel close to Elle. She knows I’m goofy. I know she has great strength.”

The duo also bonded off-set with Jolie’s six kids — Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne — who came along while their mom shot the film in London. And their offscreen activities could get a little intense, including a paintball outing where Jolie was much better than Fanning.

“Probably not Disney-approved, because we could have gotten injured!” Fanning jokes. “We had welts on our legs. I’d never gone paintballing before. Angelina does it a lot. She was good. I was trying. I hit her security guard in the neck. And he was on my team!” [Source]

At 21, Elle Fanning is a modern-day princess of Hollywood. From starring alongside Angelina Jolie to being the youngest judge ever at Cannes, it seems the star can’t put a foot wrong. Emma Elwick-Bates discovers the serene secrets of her wild success

The fairytale turrets of the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles provided the perfect backdrop for November cover star Elle Fanning to talk to Emma Elwick-Bates about being a modern-day Hollywood princess. Soon to be reprising her star role as Princess Aurora in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil opposite Angelina Jolie, the 21-year-old radiates regal glamour in the cover shoot, styled in a glamorous Old Hollywood headscarf by Julia Clancey and a silk dress by Carolina Herrera, with piles of rings, necklaces and bracelets befitting Tinseltown royalty.

‘Aurora represents the youth of the generation who is accepting to all, no matter what, and she does it in her own soft way,’ she says of the character, a reimagining of Sleeping Beauty. ‘I think it’s a nice message to tell women, it’s okay to be comfortable in your femininity. Kindness is not weakness – it’s quite the opposite.’

On the current generation of royals, Fanning was very sympathetic to their place in the spotlight, saying: ‘Kate and Meghan are doing royal femininity very differently. I can’t imagine being in the public eye like that. Every single move you make is critiqued.’ And her favourite? ‘I like Harry. Isn’t he the fun one?’ she quips.

Fanning and her elder sister Dakota have taken Hollywood by storm in the last decade, becoming two of the most well-respected and in-demand young actresses in the industry. So how did she end up following her sister into the business?

‘I saw my sister doing it and I was a huge ham growing up,’ she explains. ‘We would constantly put on these scenes around the house. It wasn’t for anyone, only for ourselves, We would do lines, characters, it was very funny. It just felt right at home for us… We weren’t supposed to do this at all. My mom played tennis, my dad played baseball, my mom’s dad was a quarterback in the NFL. We were supposed to play tennis or something. Everyone says Dakota’s Meryl, and I’m Marilyn.’

The Fanning sisters’ impeccable Southern manners are often commented on (they were born in Georgia but moved to Hollywood aged three and six) – with the duo known for sending well-written and thoughtful thank you notes in particular. Does this help them in dog-eat-dog Hollywood? ‘There is a stigma placed on women in any workplace,’ she explains thoughtfully. ‘But especially in Hollywood. You must be super competitive and super jealous. And it’s something that people want to project, but it’s actually not the case.’

Elle Fanning may play a princess in the new Maleficent movie but she says she’d hate to be constantly in the public eye like the real-life royal family.

The 21-year-old admits she’s a fan of the royals and singled out “the fun one” Prince Harry as her favourite.

But she says she couldn’t handle having “every move” of her life analysed like the Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex.

In an interview with Tatler, Fanning said: “Kate and Meghan are doing royal femininity differently. I can’t imagine being in the public eye like that. Every move you make is critiqued. I like Harry. Isn’t he the fun one?”

Fanning, who plays Princess Aurora in the second instalment, Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil, alongside Angelina Jolie, says her character represents “acceptance”.

“Aurora represents the youth of the generation who is accepting to all, no matter what, and she does it in her own way. I think it’s a nice message to tell women, it’s okay to be comfortable in your femininity,” she said.

She said she and her film star older sister Dakota were “supposed” to have sporting careers — but instead got the acting bug. Their parents Heather and Steven both played sport professionally. Fanning added: “We weren’t supposed to do [acting]. My mom played tennis, my dad played baseball.”

Fanning made her debut as a younger version of Dakota’s character in 2001 hit I Am Sam — and said she had been inspired by her sister.

Speaking in the November issue of Tatler, Fanning said: “We would constantly put on these scenes around the house. It wasn’t for anyone, only ourselves. We would do lines, characters. It just felt right at home for us.”

There’s perhaps no more primal variety of feud in the world than the sibling rivalry, and it can get exponentially worse if those siblings happen to work in the same industry and compete for similar jobs. Fortunately, Dakota and Elle Fanning now have nothing but love and respect for one another, but there’s one long-ago project of Dakota’s that Elle just couldn’t get behind, thanks to a healthy dose of jealousy.

In a new cover interview with Net-a-Porter’s Porter magazine, Elle was discussing how she handles rejection when she recalled one of the first times she was turned down by a casting director. “I had an [audition] to be on Friends once. I might be remembering this wrong but I think I was gonna be one of Phoebe’s triplets,” she said. “I auditioned for it but I didn’t get it and I was like, ‘I’m boycotting the show, I’m never watching this again.’ Then my sister was on it and I refused to watch the episode,” she continued. “I was like, ‘I am not watching this!'”

Phoebe’s triplets appeared in episodes from 1998 to 2003, meaning the now-20-year-old Elle was auditioning for the role sometime between the ages of a few months old to five years old (Dakota was 10 when she appeared in an episode of the show’s final season), long enough ago that her childhood grudge has since worn off. In fact, Elle shared in the interview that she and Dakota are currently on the lookout for a project in which they can act side-by-side, and have a dream of starting a production company together, named after their grandmother: “We call her Gaba, so it could be Gaba Productions,” she said.

Plus, not only does Elle now fully support all of her sister’s onscreen projects, but she also even regularly revisits ones from around the dark days of her Friends boycott. “Dakota doesn’t know this, but I, like, will sometimes watch old videos of Dakota on talk shows when she was like, yeah, like six,” Elle told W in 2016. “She was so cute and I’ll just, like, watch them over and over again and they make me cry for some reason, but I’m very nostalgic.” No word, however, on whether she’s ever gone back and watched that fateful Friends episode.

Elle Fanning’s role as a Miu Miu muse has been well documented. The 20-year-old first appeared in the brand’s Spring 2014 campaign and recently made her catwalk debut, opening and closing the Fall 2018 show. Now, Fanning and Miu Miu have reached another milestone: The actress is also the face of the brand’s new fragrance.

I meet Fanning at the penthouse of the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. Considering that our meeting has come at the end of a very long press day, she is impressively vibrant and greets me with a hug. “Hi! Welcome!” she says. “I’m Elle.”

She is dressed in a coral Miu Miu shift dress, her willowy 5-foot-9 frame tottering above silver glitter platform sandals that she’s paired (rather ingeniously) with mustard-striped ankle socks. Fanning resembles a very tall fairy; it’s not just her wide eyes, pert nose, and charmingly mischievous grin. It’s her mien—a girlish exuberance (her phone case is emboldened with the word “Rah!” in pink cursive) married with the assuredness of an old soul (she uses anachronistic terms like “cheeky”). To meet Fanning, who followed sister Dakota into acting at the tender age of 2, is to understand how she won the role of a Disney princess (Maleficent) and why designer Miuccia Prada keeps tapping her for projects on behalf of Miu Miu, the quirky-cool little sister of Prada. “It really speaks to my personality—cute and imaginative but still sophisticated,” she says.

This latest campaign sees Fanning as the face of the label’s new perfume, Twist—a sweet, crisp scent with notes of apple blossom and bergamot—which launches January 15 exclusively at Sephora. Fashion photographer team Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shot the still images while artist collective Canada created the short film. “It takes you backstage of a commercial but in a whole other universe,” Fanning says of the ad-within-an-ad premise, which blends swinging ’60s song-and-dance numbers with a retro space-age aesthetic. “We are on the moon, there are mutants walking around . . . it’s very cheeky.” Looking like a wholesome Barbarella, Fanning meanders through various over-the-top production sets, amusing herself with Miu Miu–centric wordplay—miusic, miustache, miutant. “They know me so well that in writing this, they kept in mind my sense of humor.”

“I think of her as a mythical creature. She just moves in such a graceful way and there’s really — all due respect to everyone out there — there’s just no one like her,” McMillen told THR.

For actress Elle Fanning, fashion is much more than wearing designer gowns to red carpets around the world — it’s a way for her to express who she really is.

“Fashion is such a creative outlet for me, it always has been,” she told The Hollywood Reporter for its 2018 Power Stylist issue. “I definitely was one of those kids at school that kind of put on some crazy outfits. I was made fun [of] for it, but it made me feel empowered.”

Fanning’s stylist Samantha McMillen tells THR that working with the actress is a magical experience, calling her a “unicorn” when it comes to fashion.

“I think of her as a mythical creature. She just moves in such a graceful way and there’s really — all due respect to everyone out there — there’s just no one like her,” she told THR. “She’s a unicorn. She doesn’t want to be like anyone else and I just try to offer those options that I feel like are her, knowing her so well.”

What makes the fashion choices that Fanning wears so special is the energy she brings to the look. Talking about their all-time favorite looks she’s worn, McMillen said, “They come alive when she is on the red carpet and she makes it even more than it was originally.” [Source]
