Who is Elle Fanning? The rejection made her self-aware
Who is Elle Fanning? When the actress was 16 years old she auditioned for a role in a father-daughter in a comedy movie, however, she was rejected by the producers who thought she was not sexy enough to be on the movie screen.
While speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, she admitted that “I’ve never told this story, but I was trying out for a movie. I didn’t get it. I don’t even think they ever made it, but it was a father-daughter road trip comedy.”
Elle added. “I didn’t hear from my agents because they wouldn’t tell me things like this – that filtration system is essential because there’s probably a lot more damaging comments that they filtered – but this one got to me.”
Even after being objectified at a young age, the actress is extremely confident about herself since she has always been in the public eye. She admitted that the comment made her self-aware rather than damaging her.
She said: “I was always immensely confident, but of course, you’re growing up in the public eye, and it’s weird. I’ll look at paparazzi photos from when I was 12 and think, ‘Is that a good thing to see such a mirror of yourself at that age?’ I don’t feel like it damaged me, but it definitely made me very aware of myself.” The actress clearly was brave enough not to let that comment get to her and to move forward in her acting journey. Currently, the actress has a net worth of $6 million.
