“Elle is so sweet, and a kid, and to have her play this role where she’s kind of like the slutty, mischievous one, very vain and kind of a bad girl—that’s the opposite of her personality,” Coppola told Vogue of Fanning’s character. “I thought that was really fun.” “The Beguiled” opens in theaters June 30.
