VULTURE – The Sisters Fanning are following in the footsteps of countless other actor siblings and bringing their sisterhood to the screen in the World War II drama The Nightingale. Dakota Fanning, 25, and Elle Fanning, 21, said in a joint statement on Elle’s Instagram that

“The Nightingale will be the first time we act onscreen together. We have played the same character at different ages but have never spoken to each other in front of a camera. For years, we have looked for a film to do with one another and then this gem appeared.”

The Fannings have indeed played the same character at different ages in I Am Sam and the miniseries Taken, but as noted in the statement, did not share screen time. The Nightingale is an adaptation of Kristin Hannah’s 2015 novel of the same name, which follows two sisters growing up in Nazi-occupied France. Mélanie Laurent is set to direct.

ELLE UKElle Fanning and Angelina Jolie share several A-list similarities.

For starters, they both come from a celebrity dynasty that includes fathers and sisters and other family members. They have both starred in numerous luxury fashion brand campaigns for the likes of Guerlain, Louis Vuitton, and Marc Jacobs and they both have been nominated for prestigious awards, including Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild and Academy Awards.

But now, the mother-of-six learns that she and Teen Spirit actress Fanning have another, perhaps more surprising thing in common.

In an interview with ELLE UK ahead of the release of their new film Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Fanning revealed to Jolie that her ballet teacher used to babysit the 44-year-old when she was a child.

Speaking about her dance teacher Wendy Lawson, who the actress counts as one of her best friends and a fellow ‘wicked woman’, the 20-year-old told Jolie that Lawson used to care for the Oscar-nominated star.
