Plus, the star discusses her appreciation for quality friends
Elle Fanning has admitted that some of the best advice has come from actress Nicole Kidman.
She spoke highly of the 49-year-old actress, explaining to Elle magazine: “Nicole Kidman told me, ‘Find your tribe and they’ll always be behind you.’ I like that.”
And while the Neon Demon star would like to grow her circle of friends, she’s very appreciative of the few quality people she has.
“I’m not someone that has a lot of friends. I see people who have many friends and get really jealous. I have a good core of three or four friends who are really close to me,” she added.
Meanwhile, Elle had previously confessed she wasn’t able to make good friends until she reached the age of nine.
She explained: “I had no friends – friends like, best friends. I’d never gone to a sleepover or anything, because you know, I was working …
I was socially reaching out. But it was definitely scary. Like, I didn’t know the etiquette of school – about raising your hand, the schedule of it … I really do [think that], honestly [I had a good childhood]. I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’ve thought about it. It’s so nice to already know that this is what I want to do for ever, and I’m so young.”
And the 18-year-old feels she’s impressed her sister Dakota’s friends, adding: “Dakota is friends with Katy Perry and Kristen Stewart is one of her best friends, too. Kristen was one of the friends I was never able to hang out with. I was like, not allowed. And then Kristen was like, ‘It’s ok. Elle is cool.'”
