Elle Fanning had a frightening fainting spell at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday night.
The young actor has been seen in a slew of projects recently, and has even more in the works. Elle will be in the long-awaited Disney film Maleficent, is in the upcoming Woody Allen flick with Timothée Chamalet and Selena Gomez A Rainy Day in New York, plus a coming-of-age romance with Justice Smith All The Bright Places.
Fanning wore a 1950's Prada dress that was "too tight."
The actor is a member of the Cannes Festival jury this year, an honor that allows her to be a part of the secret ballot that votes on the festival's best feature film.
At the star-studded Chopard Trophee dinner, Fanning fell from her chair while the festival director was speaking, according to Variety. Apparently, a few eyewitnesses noticed some A-list actors, Colin Firth and Marion Cotillard, who were seated at her table were alarmed at the actor's fall.
Some of the actor's friends commented supportive messages.
Most likely in attempt to ease the star's embarrassment at the situation, her friends brushed off the fainting spell with some friendly comments.
Model and activist Adwoa Aboah remarked that the actor was still the "best dressed woman ever though!!!!" Actor January Jones played off the actor's collapse and commented, "Where’s your smelling salts when you need em??" To which Fanning replied, "amen!" Sabrina actor Kiernan Shipka wrote, "you're a literal icon."
Elle stepped out the next day and looked like she made a full recovery.
The Fanning sister was spotted outside her hotel the following day wearing a slightly less constricting outfit and still looked polished following the scare. She wore a knee-length matching dress and jacket with embroidered blue bows and strap-y red kitten heels. The Cannes jury member wasn't going to let her pass out hinder the rest of her festival experience.
