Elle Fanning only turned 18 in April, which is hard to believe given her long list of accolades and accomplishments.
But despite rumblings the actress would follow in older sister Dakota's footsteps and enroll in a university, she tells ET that’s not the case – yet.
“For this year, I'm not going at the moment because I’m starting a film and I don't think it would be fair… I wouldn't really be there,” she explains. “If I went, I would want to kind of have the college experience.”
Fanning certainly has a lot on her plate. We counted eight movies in production on her IMDB page, including Live by Night, also starring Ben Affleck, who wrote and directed the Prohibition-era film.
Fanning confirms they’ve wrapped shooting and says she was in awe by Affleck’s talent on set.
“It’s insane because he wrote it and directed it and he’s starring in the movie...so you're acting with the director. It’s crazy!" she shares. "I would love to direct one day, so for me, seeing that, I mean, he's thinking like a mile-a-minute about everything. It’s pretty insane. So that was really, really cool to see.”
“I would say [it was] the most challenging," she says. "I played a transgender boy and I got to meet with so many amazing young guys and just talking to them and hearing their stories... it was powerful. I'll never fully feel the way they feel but I think to have a movie that's about a transgender teen isn't done often but it needs to be out there so maybe someone in another state that's going through what Ray is going through, maybe they'll relate to them and know that they're being heard at least.”
One starlet who is venturing to college? Ariel Winter. Watch the video below to see what she exclusively told ET about what she plans to study -- and why.
