'There is a stigma placed on actresses'

Los Angeles: Elle Fanning says women are expected to be "jealous" in Hollywood.

In an interview to Tatler magazine, Fanning said women are told to pit themselves against one another in Hollywood, reports "There is a stigma placed on women in any workplace, especially in Hollywood. You must be super competitive and super jealous. And it's something that people want to project, but it's actually not the case," she said.

The Maleficent: Mistress of Evil star had a passion for acting from a young age. She used to act scenes with her sister Dakota Fanning.

"Well, I saw my sister doing it and I was a huge ham growing up. We would constantly put on these scenes around the house. It wasn't for anyone, only for ourselves. We would do lines, characters, it was very funny.

It just felt right at home for us... We weren't supposed to do this

at all," she said.
