There's no sibling rivalry between Dakota Fanning and her kid sister Elle.
Though 12-year-old Elle has been generating lots of buzz around Hollywood for her role as the daughter of a hard-living actor in the upcoming drama "Somewhere," Dakota, 16, couldn't be happier that her sister's star is on the rise.
"She's really proud of me and I'm really proud of her, and we go and visit each other on sets," Elle tells CNN of her relationship with "The Runaways" star.
Elle, who played a younger version of Cate Blanchett's character in 2009's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and currently appears in "The Nutcracker in 3-D," adds that her big sis doesn't even try to give her acting tips.
"Sometimes she gives me advice," Elle says of Dakota, who was named homecoming queen at North Hollywood's Campbell Hall Episcopal High School in November. "But most of the time it's just being really proud of me and anything I want to do; she's totally supportive of it."
Elle's film "Somewhere," written and directed by Sofia Coppola and starring Stephen Dorff, opens in limited release in New York and Los Angeles on December 22.
