Elle Fanning may have just turned 18 years old last month, but she is so wise beyond her years.

Recently speaking to BANG Showbiz, she said,

People’s obsession with beauty and perfection, it can really destroy you and wanting perfection it’s like ‘But what is perfection?’ it doesn’t exist. Perfect doesn’t exist, so you drive yourself crazy wanting it.”

So true!

She also added how dangerous social media can be because people to hide behind their phones and be “kinda catty.”

We love how down-to-earth she is! Elle may have grown up in Hollywood, but she definitely has a good head on her shoulders.

Lena Finkel is the Editor and Founder of Femestella. Prior to starting Femestella, she worked at People, InStyle, and Tiger Beat. Her favorite Housewife is Bethenny Frankel (by far!), but when she’s not watching RHONY, you can probably find her hanging with her kitty Tom or tweeting at Sen. Chuck Schumer.
