    On the Thursday episode of the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Elle Fanning talked about auditioning for a part in a big-budget franchise but did not get the role because of her social media presence.

    I didn’t get a part once for something big — and it might not have just been this reason, but this was all the feedback that I heard — because I didn’t have enough Instagram followers at the time,” she said.

    Fanning, who enjoys over six million Instagram followers, further said: “And so, that was a little like, OK, I mean that I firmly don’t believe in like ever not getting a part [because of that].”

    During the podcast, Fanning also revealed that she does not feel the need to do films for Marvel, DC, or ‘Star Wars.’ “It does something for people, you know, but you also don’t know if they’re gonna work sometimes, which is also scary,” she said.

    The young actress talked about balancing between doing big-budget studio flicks with independent projects. “If you want to do your indie work, especially in producing, now I realize, well, there are scripts that I want to take a chance on and produce and they’re small, but then you know you have to know, maybe it’s about the experience,” she added.

    Fanning concluded, “But then if you have the backing of knowing that you have that thing, it does make you breathe better.”
