Elle Fanning: Ryan Gosling is dreamy

Elle Fanning

Elle Fanning has revealed she has a major crush on Ryan Gosling.

The Maleficent actress is a typical 16-year-old girl when it comes to who she fancies. But unlike most girls her age, Elle has been lucky enough to meet her crush in person, and it was an experience that has stayed with her.

“He once gave me a hug,’ Elle told Fashion Magazine, of which she is the cover star for their summer edition. “It was pretty intense because he’s dreamy. I have a Ryan Gosling coloring book so whenever I want, I can color Ryan.”

Aside from her feelings for the Crazy Stupid Love actor, Elle has a girl crush on a movie legend, Marilyn Monroe. The Super 8 actress has been fascinated with the blonde bombshell since she first saw one of her films as a child.

“I watched [The Seven Year Itch] when I was seven — way too young to see it — but I was Marilyn for Halloween that year,’ Elle explained. “There is so much depth to her because of what she went through in her life. You can see that in her performances. It never looks like she’s faking anything.”

Elle, whose sister Dakota is also an actress, has been lucky enough to work with one of today’s most beautiful women too. In Maleficent she stars alongside Angelina Jolie, and the 38-year-old made quite an impression on her.

“She’s one of the nicest ladies in the world. She’s unbelievable and just to see her work and be a mom. Her kids were always on set,” she told Cover Media at a special event for the film which was held at London’s Kensington Palace last week.
