Elle Fanning collects gum wrappers
Actress Elle Fanning says she has “thousands” of gum wrappers, which she keeps in boxes under her bed.
In an interview to W magazine, the actress said that she loves chewing gum and used to always hold on to their packaging, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I also love gum, and I have a gum wrapper obsession. Dubble Bubble wrappers. Bazooka wrappers. I would chew the gum and then save all the wrappers in shoeboxes under my bed. I have thousands,” she said.
The 21-year-old actress also used to walk around with chicken bones in her bag because she thought the brought her good luck.
She said: “I also had a wishbone obsession. When we had chicken, we would play the wishbone game, and if I won, I’d keep the bone in my purse. The wishbones gave me good luck.”
Fanning’s first obsession was with late actress Marilyn Monroe.
“One of my first obsessions was Marilyn Monroe. I discovered her when I was seven years old. I dressed up as her in ‘The Seven Year Itch’ and went and tried on all her bras at an auction of her personal things. I was totally in character. It was very amusing for everybody,” she recalled.
