Elle Fanning covers the February 2017 issue of 'ELLE' UK magazine. Elle talks about the old Hollywood glamour of the 50's and how they had a mystery to them. How now with social media everyone knows everything about you. Here is what Elle had to say:
On the best advice: ‘Nicole Kidman told me, “Find your tribe and they’ll always be behind you.” I like that.’ On staying away from Social Media: ‘I recently turned my Instagram public on my 18th birthday, but I still don’t post everything I do, and I’m not on Twitter or Facebook. You have to leave a little mystery. With old movie stars, all you saw were rare interviews where they only shared what they wanted to – that’s what made them so interesting. You could separate the characters from the women, so if you watch them on screen you’re not thinking about what they had for breakfast.’
On accessibility: ‘It’s so hard in this era when an ex is only a text away. Back in the day they had to work up the courage to call on the phone, talk to your parents, and when you broke up you didn’t see them again. But now, between Snapchat and Instagram, you can see everything – especially them with a new partner. But it’s damaging so you have to stop… I have high anxiety and I’m on my phone constantly, so I find myself comparing myself to others.’ On her social circle: ‘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 is right. I only post photos of me on my Instagram not places where I have been or where I am going. Many celebrities have gotten robbed all over the world when they show where they are going and what they are doing on their feeds. Then they wonder why they get robbed. They are always posting I am over here now I'm over here always with the location enabled on their Instagram.
