Elle Fanning covers the latest issue of Porter Edit magazine photographed by Benny Horne and styled by Morgan Pilcher.
On fully embracing her wild side: People might not think that I have that side. It’s a wild side but a healthy wild side,” she says. “With child actors, people sometimes think, ‘Ooh, evil wild side!’ No, it’s not. It’s just being a teenager.”
On opening and closing for Miu Miu during the Paris Fall/Winter 2018 collections: “Afterwards, I felt really euphoric,” recalls the actress. “I’m so glad they asked me to do it! But I was very, very nervous. I do get nervous for things, before a big scene or anything. I like the feeling before a scene when you scare yourself so much that it’s like: ‘I am so scared right now but I live for the challenge.’”
On the the recent shootings in Parkland, Florida: “With those students, I can’t even imagine what they’re going through. If I was going to school right now, I would be terrified. Nobody deserves to be scared in their own classroom. But it’s so great to see young voices finally being heard.”
