Younger Fanning learns her limits

Updated: September 24, 2012 6:25AM

Ah, sisters. The love. The togetherness. The catfights!

Elle Fanning admits that she drives older sister Dakota nuts on one topic.

“She hates it when I wear her clothes,” says Elle, 12, about her 16-year-old fellow actor. “It’s the worst thing ever if she finds her clothes in my room. She’ll tell me, ‘Elle, you’re never doing this again.’

“She also doesn’t like to stand next to me because I’m so tall. Dakota is 5-4 and I’m 5-6. I went to the doc’s office and they said I grew seven inches in one year.”

Fanning, now starring in “Somewhere” and “The Nutcracker in 3D,” does look up to her big sis’ role in the “Twilight” movies.

“My friend is a ‘Twilight’ fanatic,” Elle says. “I took her to the premiere. She met Robert Pattinson and shook his hand. She said, ‘I’ll never wash this hand again.’ Major points for me!”
