If Elle Fanning Never met Michelle CarterIn real life she would ask one question: “Why did you make your eyebrows dark?”

This is something the actress thought about after playing Michelle in 2017’s Hulu limited series. Michelle was convicted for involuntary murderer. Plainville Girl. “I believe the harsh eyebrows really did do a lot,” she said during a roundtable discussion. Entertainment Weekly‘s The awardist podcast. “She didn’t show a lot of emotion and had like kind of those smirks and things—and I’m curious why she drew them on.”

Elle is not without her ideas. She suggested that the thick brows were like “war paint” for the teen, adding, “She’s going in and she wants to kind of get herself ready for battle every day.”

Michelle would be surprised if Elle came face-to face with her, Elle said.
