Elle Fanning is almost unrecognizable right now thanks to the very short red haircut she’s sporting on the set of the the movie she’s now filming,* Three Generations.*
According to Deadline, “Fanning stars as Ray, a teenager transitioning from female to male as his mother (Naomi Watts) and grandmother (Susan Sarandon) come to terms with the life-altering decision.” Sounds like a meaty role for the 16-year-old star and one that explains the overall androgynous vibe of her look. But it’s such a change from her usual long, light hairstyle that it takes a minute to even register that it’s her.
If this isn’t a wig (and it looks like it isn’t), it’ll be interesting to see how she grows it out from here—or if she even decides to at all. Short hair is having a moment, don’t you know?
