Variety’s “Power of Young Hollywood” multi cover issue is out and features three of Hollywood’s most prominent young stars. Jaden Smith, Ansel Elgort and Elle Fanning.
Jaden Smith, 18 — in addition to roles in summer tentpoles (like 2010’s “The Karate Kid,” made when he was 12) and on TV (Netflix’s new series “The Get Down”) —has launched a fashion line, MSFTS Republic, and upended traditional gender expectations with his red-carpet fashion choices.
Elle Fanning, 18, has been playing innocent roles onscreen since age 3, but more recently she has morphed into a fashion icon and the muse of crime-thriller impresario Nicolas Winding Refn, starring in his full-blown horror film “The Neon Demon.”
Ansel Elgort, 22, who made it big with 2014’s “The Fault in Our Stars,” channels some of his creative energy into songwriting, and sidelines as a singer and DJ. (When fans ask him for a selfie, he agrees only if they promise to google his new single “Home Alone.”)
