Elle Fanning appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and talked about how she came across the Squid Game stars at the LACMA Art+Film Gala.
As a huge fan, Fanning said, “The cast of Squid Game was there. So, I was like, ‘I’m getting a selfie with the Squid Game cast.’ I was so excited because I’m a huge fan. They are such great actors. Luckily, in the end, I did get a selfie with them.” She continued, “Camilla Morrone (Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend) and I were freaking out and Leo was like ‘Guys, act cool. Relax.’ And when we were like ‘But it’s Squid Game!’ It was then when he went like ‘It is? What? Where?’ I could tell he was like excited too.”
In fact, the Squid Game cast has grabbed massive attention at the event. Many Hollywood stars, including Elle Fanning, had approached them first to talk to them or take pictures with them. Even the renowned actor Leonardo DiCaprio took a nice picture with Lee Jung Jae and attracted a great deal of interest.
Previously, the star-studded affair at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art was hosted by Squid Game stars Lee Jung Jae, Lee Byung Hun, Park Hae Soo, director Hwang Dong Hyuk and the CEO of Siren Pictures Kim Ji Yeon.
