approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Elle's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Elle Fanning comes across, the face she shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Elle Fanning - her real motivation, which describes the kind of person she is at heart and where her true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Elle Fanning" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Elle a little better. This page describes the disguise Fanning wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Elle Fanning appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Elle has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Fanning tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Fanning.
Fanning approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Elle Fanning is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Elle's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Elle and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature. Elle Fanning empathizes with others and intuitively senses the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, she is easily moved by others' pain, and Elle Fanning is often the one that others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Her moods fluctuate and change frequently and she is sometimes open and sometimes withdrawn emotionally. Elle Fanning communicates nonverbally and appreciates a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
Elle never forgets either kindness or unkindness shown to her.
She may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if she cannot sit still. Elle Fanning seems alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. Elle tends to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
She may be seen as the wild card, the unpredictable or kooky one, because occasionally Elle Fanning does surprising things that are either totally out of character or are actually intended to shock people. There is an erratic quality or rebelliousness that comes across at odd moments. It seems to be Elle's role to shake things up a bit and she may not be entirely comfortable with this herself.
There is a certain depth and intensity about Elle that may be threatening to others. No matter how gentle or unassuming Elle Fanning may be on the surface, she is also a force to be reckoned with. Elle has causes, passions, or desires that drive her and when one of these is aroused Fanning is quite zealous in her pursuit or defense of it.
Elle Fanning tends to suppress her feelings and may even pretend that she does not have any, therefore appearing rather cold. Elle feels separated from others and is inclined to isolate herself. Others see Elle Fanning as a reserved, detached and serious person.
She is likely to live in an unusual or somewhat restless environment. Elle Fanning needs her freedom and may be a bit inconsiderate and combative toward others at times. Elle has a strong desire to exceed her limits, even if it means having to use force.
