Elle Fanning huge ‘Twilight’ fan

It looks like even movie stars aren’t immune to the power of “Twilight.” Elle Fanning, 12-year-old sister of Dakota Fanning, is a huge “Twilight” fan.

In the new Sophia Coppola film “Somewhere,” Elle has a scene where her character is trying to explain the “Twilight” story to her father (played by Stephen Dorff). I ask Elle if that was something she improvised for the movie.

“No. Sophia wrote that back when it was just the books that were so popular,” Elle says.

Despite the fact her sister starred in the second and third “Twilight” movies, Elle never visited her during the filming. She did get to go to the grand opening of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and was excited to se all of the stars.

That leads to the obvious question: Are you Team Jacob or Team Edward?

“I’m Team Voltori,” Elle says with a smile.

For those of you not up on “Twilight,” the Voltori are a group of pretty nasty vampires. Dakota plays Jane, a member of that group.
