Elle Fanning looks amazing after she leaves her Pilates class in Studio City, CA
I feel as though Hollywood needs to stop casting Elle Fanning in speaking roles. Now hear me out, here. Whether it's 20th Century Women or The Neon Demon or Trumbo or hell even Maleficent, she is almost always woefully miscast and her general demeanor is one of, "I have better things I could be doing than starring in a movie right now."
So, in order to cure films of this problem, I have devised a solution. No, it's not to just stop casting, but rather to start casting her in non-speaking roles. This way, we can still look at her and admire her and enjoy seeing her in a film, rather than cursing the heavens above that they gave her dialogue again. Seeing her rocking this red workout get-up that she wore to Pilates only reinforces the need to do this sooner rather than later.
You're on blast, Hollywood, until you figure out how to use Elle properly. If you want a Fanning sister that can convincingly deliver dialogue, you want Dakota. If you want someone to stand around looking pretty and you don't require her to say anything at all, then you call for Elle.
