Though she’s still quite early in her bustling career, Elle Fanning has experienced things that many can only dream of.

And in her new interview for V Magazine's Summer Issue (on newsstands May 26th), the “We Bought a Zoo” babe can’t say enough good things about working with Angelina Jolie on Disney’s “Maleficent.”

Elle declares, "Whenever she walks into a room, you just stare at her. And she was walking around on set in the whole costume with both her twins, one on each hip. It made her seem even more otherworldly. But she was incredible. We had the best time. I really love her.”

And despite Jolie’s scary costume, she still managed to maintain her stunner status. “I mean she looks unbelievably gorgeous and elegant, and she’s playing evil! She has horns."

Meanwhile, Fanning is eager to expand her artistic palette with some grittier material. “Just because I have blonde hair and pale skin, I think people look at me and they see a princess. Maybe next I’d like a darker role. I’d like to get a little grungier.”
