Elle Fanning, the 12-year-old sister of that other seasoned actress Dakota Fanning (who is 16), takes a giant step forward this month in Sofia Coppola's Somewhere, which won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival. The movie is set in the Chateau Marmont, on Sunset Boulevard, where everyone from Howard Hughes to Hunter S. Thompson has stayed. The hotel is now a mecca for young actors and hipsters. 
 
Stephen Dorff plays Johnny Marco, a bored and overindulged movie star, who gets an unexpected visit from his daughter, Cleo (Fanning). Coppola, stealing from her own experience as a kid traipsing through hotels with her father, Francis Ford Coppola, creates a mood reminiscent of her 2003 feature, Lost in Translation, which got her an Oscar for screenplay. “We had a big rehearsal period,” Elle tells me. “Every day we came to the Chateau, so it sort of felt like my second home.”

The bonding process even carried over into real life.

“Stephen picked me up from my school, and he came to one of my volleyball games,” she says.

“He had these long extensions in for a movie he was doing, so all my friends were looking at this guy, like: Who is that?” There hasn't been a sisters act like this in Hollywood since the days of Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland. I ask Elle if she and Dakota give each other career advice.

“It's separate. We talk all the time about more normal sister stuff, like: can I borrow this shirt? But she will come out and visit me on location, and I do the same for her. So it's just a part of our lives.”
