Elle Fanning

Today is the 13th birthday of child actress Elle Fanning.  This also happens to be the 100th post at Pigtails in Paint, and so it’s only natural it be a celebratory post.  Elle is the younger sister of another child actress, Dakota Fanning, and has played younger versions of Dakota’s characters at least twice (in Stephen Spielberg Presents: Taken and I Am Sam.)   She also has a strong connection to one of my favorite girl-oriented books, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, through her wonderful film Phoebe in Wonderland.

One of the most heartbreaking scenes from Phoebe in Wonderland is this scene, where Phoebe breaks down after confessing to her mother that she can’t stop hurting herself:
