Elle Fanning, Ansel Elgort and Jaden Smith on the cover of Variety
In the month of September Variety dedicates his Power of the Young Hollywood Issue, and to the young of Hollywood. The choice fell on the three protagonists, who in recent times have dominated the scenes and who have lent their faces for the same cover.
Ellen Fanning, Ansel Elgort and Jaden Smith posed for a photo shoot and were told in a long interview.
Jaden in the way of having always felt different from other boys explained that:
“I have always looked at life in a completely different way from the others. Ever since I started talking, I realized that a lot of people, I never would have understood, and it is for this reason that I have always been a silent. I was very calm, there I was, with myself. I lived life in a different way than the other children and I can say that based on how I was treated by them.”
Elle on the response of the audience towards his movies:
“Some fantastic films have been criticized at Cannes. But in general I prefer that my film receives critical net, which is loved or hated, and not that the public just say ‘Oh, it was fine!‘”
Ansel Elgort on the break with his old roles:
“Certain opportunities that do not happen ever to the young actors. Otherwise my biggest commercial success would have been to interpret the role of the brother in Divergent’. And’ as if there was any weight behind that character. Today, however, a studio and a director can choose for a movie and tell me ‘I Am sure that you will do a good job‘.”
