Elle Fanning exuded charm and youthful sexiness at a news conference for Maleficent at the Salon Elysée at Hôtel Le Bristol in Paris.

Elle Fanning is a sexy, charismatic actress who, so far, seems to have avoided the pressure Hollywood so often places on young, teen actresses to grow up fast and become over-sexualized.

Fanning, 16, has been on the road for the past few weeks with Angelina Jolie, promoting their new Disney film “Maleficent.”

Along the way, she’s demonstrated a maturity beyond her years, both in how she acts and how she looks. There’s no denying she exudes a certain sexuality, but she’s done a good job keeping it age-appropriate.

It doesn’t always work out that way. Just take one look at Willow Smith, the 13-year-old daughter of actor Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.

She was recently photographed in bed, presumably naked, with former “Hannah Montana” actor Moisés Arias, who is 20. Mom Jada told TMZ incredulously that nothing was “sexual” about the photo.

Elle may be benefiting from the fact that she has an older sister in the business, Dakota Fanning.

She also received critical acclaim early for her acting in films like J. J. Abrams’ sci-fi blockbuster, “Super 8.” That may be giving her the leverage to avoid Hollywood’s shark tank for young actress.
