13 year old actress Elle Fanning has revealed how she was often getting mistaken for her sister Dakota Fanning and did not feel that she was getting the recognition that she deserved. However, Elle has admitted that since appearing in Somewhere, things have changed somewhat.
Fanning explained, "Before Somewhere, they asked me if I was Dakota Fanning, because we looked alike, and I'd say, 'No, I'm her younger sister'. And they'd say, 'Oh, okay'. But now I think they are starting to realise I'm my own person."
She added, "After Somewhere came out, people started to recognise me more. Whenever I was walking down the street, they'd be like, 'Oh, wow, are you Elle Fanning?'" Elle Fanning can next be seen on the big screen alongside Scarlett Johansson and Matt Damon in We Bought a Zoo, which is released on December 23.
