Elle Fanning says working on a movie set is ”such an intimate experience”.

The ‘Maleficent’ star enjoys ”sharing emotions” with her co-stars and the crew and she feels very lucky to have worked with many amazing filmmakers who have always ”treated her like she mattered”.

She said: ”A movie set is such an intimate experience. You’re sharing emotions you might not share with the closest family members. I’ve learned a lot from them. You feel that energy. That’s why they are who they are, and make the movies they do … [Filmmakers] treat me like I mattered, or they cared about my opinion. The person I am today is because of those people. They really kept my imagination alive and cared about my weird ideas. These people don’t have to care, but it means a lot.”

And the 22-year-old actress – whose older sister is actress Dakota Fanning – also opened up about her approach to fashion when she was younger.

Speaking to C magazine, she added: ”When I was young, I was allowed to be eccentric. My mom would let me put on crazy outfits and go to school. I think I had an appetite for it more than Dakota did. There are things that I would wear, and she would say, ‘That looks insane.’ Kids definitely made fun of me, but I didn’t care … The fashion community really accepted me, whereas the kids in school didn’t always accept me. But I knew these top designers liked what I wore, so I continued to do that. I knew all the references, and I knew all the models, and I would look on Vogue Runway. When I get obsessed with something, I get obsessed.”
