She’s successfully following in the acting footsteps of older sister Dakota. Her last two movies were Super 8 and We Bought A Zoo.
In a W magazine interview – Elle spoke about her relationship with her older sibling.
She said of Dakota, “She is a nice older sister. But it’s not like we always get along. Now that she’s going to college, it’s different. I went into her room in California, and all her clothes were gone!
“Her closet was empty! I don’t get to go in there and steal clothes anymore. It’s really strange. It’s sort of like she’s off making a movie, but this time she’s not coming back.”
Elle also opened up about her first love scene with a boy in Super 8.
“I didn’t have to kiss him. But it was a boy-girl scene, and we had to like each other in the movie. All the boys made fun of us because we had to like each other.’
