Elle Fanning has gotten something of a makeover – and it’s dramatic to say the least!
The actress is set to star in Three Generations as a teenager who is transitioning from female to male and the role sees her with short brown hair and a very different style to what we’re used to.
In new stills from the movie, it is safe to say we almost did not realise it was Elle!
It sounds as if Elle is following in the footsteps of Charlize Theron, Christian Bale and other greats when it comes to changing an image drastically for a movie!
The movie makes a huge change from Elle's last movie role where she played Disney princess Aurora opposite Angelina Jolie in Maleficent.
However, many people aren’t so happy about Elle’s casting, asking why a real-life trans-gender teenager wasn’t used instead.
How come Elle Fanning's role as a trans teen in "Three Generations" isn't played by a trans teen instead?
