Elle Fanning Related To This ‘Friends’ Character The Most

Elle Fanning catches our attention in a bold red look in this pic from her November cover story with InStyle magazine.

In the new issue, the 21-year-old actress opens up about playing a powerful princess, politics, and just which Friends character she related to the most. Check it:

On playing a powerful princess in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil: “My mom, my sister, my grandmother, and I, we all live together. So, there is a strong sense of female empowerment that I’ve always had in my life. It’s significant to know that there are so many different types of women. I hate that in order to be strong you have to look like this or to be soft you have to look like this. Those stereotypes are just not true. My worth is knowing I can be anything. In Maleficent I play a princess [Aurora] who is strong in being completely feminine and isn’t afraid of that feeling. It’s a quality I also have. And, obviously, this version is different from the first one. I’m not fighting with a sword just so I can be stronger.”

On being asked to politically engage publicly: “Sometimes I feel like I don’t know all the information. Like, am I qualified to speak on this? But I also think it’s OK for people to say that they don’t know or aren’t sure yet. Angelina [Jolie] said that to me after a recent interview we did for Maleficent 2. She said, “You know what? It’s OK not to answer things.” I mean, I’m still learning.”

On her love of Friends: “I was always curious and mischievous. Like when I watched Friends, I loved Phoebe. I loved that she was gawky. I had a real awkward phase. I grew 12 inches in a year. I didn’t want to be like everyone else in school. There was a certain confidence that I had, that I was like, “I want you to make fun of me because that makes me feel cool.”

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil premieres on October 18th. Elle‘s cover of InStyle hits newsstands that same day.
