Flip and get more details on Elle Fanning, Jaden Smith + Ansel Elgort…
Both just 18 years old, but already Elle Fanning and Jaden Smith have solidified their status as some of the brightest, up-and-coming names in showbiz. Its a teen takeover for the milleniuniels in Variety’s Power Of Young Hollywood edition.
This edition shows just how surreal life as a rising star can be. While Elle revealed how she was forced to pick between attending prom or going to the Cannes Film Festival.
“My best friend who was going to go to prom with me ended up coming, and we had prom in Cannes.”
It’s NOT the same, but that is what Elle Fanning did to justify doing both. Most of her classmates would and will never have that opportunity. But that is what Variety’s Power Of Young Hollywood edition is all about.
Privilage kids with rich kid problems that only other rich kids can relate too.
Luckily for Elle, she still lives at home and isn’t surrounded by a bunch of boot licker friends who only are around because of her status. Her non-Hollywood friends help serve as a grounding force for the actress.
“My best friends aren’t in the industry at all…I still live with my family.”
“My parents told me that the world was harsh and that we had to be strong within ourselves.”
Jaden can be seen in the Netflix series The Get Down
Jaden also has the clothing line MSFTSrep under his belt, which he told Variety is ‘pronounced “misfits.”
“I took the ‘i’ out of ‘misfits’ because we’re a team and there is no ‘I’ in team. It’s a place for the lost kids and everyone to go.”
Ansel is very thankful to have landed the drama The Fault In Our Stars because it helped put him on the map.
He admits that he ‘got lucky’ to obtain the role. Without it, he says, he would be known as the “brother in Divergent.”
