Steven Spielberg - Steven Spielberg's Career Advice For Elle Fanning

Steven Spielberg has urged teenage actress Elle Fanning to stay in school despite her recent film success.
Spielberg has worked with a number of child stars in his hit films, including Drew Barrymore, Haley Joel Osment, Christian Bale and Fanning's older sister Dakota.
And he's convinced precocious youngsters are better off attending normal schools than sitting for lessons with private tutors on set.
The 13-year-old Somewhere star, whose latest film Super 8 is produced by Spielberg, tells the Press Association, "Steven said it's really important to have movies and have your regular life. He really is an advocate for still staying in school - I go to regular school - and he thinks you should have that as well."

Tutors International's picture

Tutors International

There's no question that tutoring while on set through the tutors provided and selected by the production company is less than ideal. If young actors want a quality education that fits around their career choices they should choose their own Tutor through a company like Tutors International. This will ensure an excellent match between student and tutor and as a result accelerate the process to maximize the efficiency of the time spent 'in class'. There is no replacement for the social aspect of learning, but social opportunities can come from a much wider variety of sources than being in class.
