Hollywood Joseph Chats With Elle Fanning

Our man-on-the-street Joseph has a chance encounter with the “Super 8” star as she takes in the Hollywood sights …

Y’know, it’s not every day that siblings from the same family become famous in Hollywood. I was thinking about that the other day as I finished my shift at my “home away from home” — the box office at the Hollywood Wax Museum, where I get to meet all you fun Museum fans! — and headed towards Hollywood & Highland for a special treat. I confess: Sometimes I skip dinner and go right for dessert … good thing H&H has one of my favorite eateries, Beard Papa’s Sweets Cafe! Have you heard of it? It’s a chain from Japan that sells these amazing cream-filled pastries.

But back to┬ácelebrity siblings. We all remember Dakota Fanning from I Am Sam and the Twilight series, right? Did you know she has an equally famous younger sister? Her name is Elle Fanning, and you might recognize her from one of my favorite recent sci-fi flicks, Super 8, as well as the movies The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and We Bought a Zoo. Anyway, just as I was about to enjoy my Beard Papa’s cream puff and some coffee, who do I spot walking into Hollywood & Highland but Elle herself?

Hollywood Joseph meets actress Elle FanningShe couldn’t have been nicer — taking a picture with me and telling me about the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards she’d just attended here in L.A. (she even got to see honoree President Clinton up close!). She also told me to be on the lookout in 2014 for some upcoming projects; one is a sci-fi film called Young Ones, directed by Gwyneth Paltrow’s brother Jake — hey, more famous siblings! The other sounds super cool … it’s a new take on the story of Sleeping Beauty called Maleficent, in which Elle will be co-starring with the one and only Angelina Jolie! WOW! Elle is one busy and talented actress, just like her older sister …

WOW is right, Joseph! Elle is definitely an up-and-coming star here in Tinseltown … so cool that you got to meet her! Readers: Do you remember the first time you saw Elle in a movie? Post about it in the comments below.
