    “What A Disgusting Pig”: Elle Fanning Recalls Losing Father-Daughter Film At 16 For Being Seen As ‘Unf***able’

    No one, especially young actresses, is bullet-proof in Hollywood. Elle Fanning has shared a traumatic story about missing out on a major role at 16. Elle Fanning, who’s been acting since she was two and has a famous elder sister Dakota Fanning who’s also an actor, was a victim of Hollywood preying on the young.

    While the ‘Super 8’ has come a long way, we are once again reminded of Hollywood’s rampant sexism and sexualization of child actors. She didn’t name the perpetrator, but thousand of such deviants continue to work in the film industry. The people who make movies are unfortunately not as picture-perfect as the movies they make.

    During The Hollywood Reporter’s roundtable conversation, the ’20th Century Women’ actress talked about the “disgusting” reason she lost a major role in a road trip comedy. She recalled a terrible experience she faced while navigating her way as a child actor. While her team protested her from the bad news, she found out why she couldn’t book the part.

    Elle Fanning confessed this to a room of other actresses for the time, ” I was trying out for a movie. I didn’t get it. I don’t even think they ever made it, but it was a father-daughter road trip comedy. I didn’t hear from my agents because they wouldn’t tell me things like this – that filtration system is really important because there’s probably a lot more damaging comments that they filtered – but this one got to me. I was 16 years old, and a person said, ‘Oh, she didn’t get the father-daughter road trip comedy because she’s unf***able.’”
