Elle Fanning Tells Jimmy Kimmel About Her Wild Promposal Story: WATCH

Elle Fanning may star alongside Angelina Jolie in the upcoming Maleficent and has graced the covers of magazines worldwide, but the 16-year-old star is still a high school girl, who gets giddy about being asked to the prom.

Fanning stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live this week and dished to the late-night talk show host about how she was asked to her school's dance.

The actress and little sister to Dakota Fanning commented on the recent trend of prom invitations being handed out in elaborate "promposals."

"I kinda had one," Fanning spilled to Kimmel. "Last year, the boy who asked me… he called me at school one day and he was like, 'I got in a car accident, come down to my car.'"

"I'm like, 'oh gosh!' I go into panic mode," she continued. "I'm like, running down. He was in the front seat [and] was like, 'Can you look in the back trunk to get a tool box? He popped the trunk and I didn't see the toolbox but I saw a first aid kit."

"So I got the first aid kit out and I'm like 'Here!'" Fanning said. "He's like 'No, there were flowers in the trunk.' Roses in the trunk, but I totally passed the roses and went for the first aid kit. He was like, 'No, will you go to prom?'"

The rising star, who wore a gorgeous white dress to the prom with her trickster date, said she still gets excited for high school dances, despite her fame and her red carpet appearances. 

"It's just as exciting," she said about the prom.
