Elle Fanning's Grandma

Sunday, 5 February 2017



“People think she’s my mom,” Elle Fanning says of grandmother Mary Jane Odum Arrington (born 1946).

Elle told Nylon that her grandma, pictured here age 19 at the University of Georgia, is “really Southern, so sometimes my accent will come out because of her.”

As a child, Elle was homeschooled by Mary Jane, and regularly travelled overseas with her granddaughter for films.

Having experienced adolescence in the 1960s, Mary Jane helped her granddaughter prepare for the role in Ginger & Rosa, set during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

“She’s the coolest lady ever,” says Elle.
