Fanning enjoys 'normal' home life

Elle Fanning has been getting advice from Steven Spielberg

Elle Fanning reckons the key to Hollywood success is simple - just keep your life as grounded as possible.

The 13-year-old Super 8 actress, who plays a teenage filmmaker drawn into a series of mysterious disappearances in the new movie, said she was given advice by its producer Steven Spielberg.

"He said we should have a normal life as well, away from movies, and go to regular school and have a home life," she said.

The teen attended the school graduation of her older sister Dakota, who stars in the Twilight films, earlier this week.

But she's not easing up on her bid for Hollywood domination - later this year she's set to appear in Francis Ford Coppola's new film Twixt Now And Sunrise, as well as appearing alongside Scarlett Johansson in Cameron Crowe's I Bought A Zoo.

"I play her cousin," she revealed. "She's amazing, she's so nice."
