Elle recently celebrated her 22nd birthday!

On April 9, when the star of The Great turned 22, the couple celebrated in Los Angeles, where they are quarantined together. Elle received elaborate cakes from her friends and family, and her older sister, actress Dakota Fanning, also shared her well wishes on social media.

"Thank you for putting up with me when I'm annoying, for always going downstairs to grab me something when I should go grab it myself, and for being the best sister anyone could ask for," the 26-year-old big sister said.

For the first time ever, the two Fanning girls will be playing on-screen sisters in this film based on Kristin Hannah's novel. The film takes place in 1939 France, while Elle and Dakota's characters come of age during the Nazi occupation.

"For years, we have looked for a film to do with one another and then this gem appeared," the Fanning sisters said in a statement. "As sisters, to share our artistry with each other while bringing such a powerful sister story to life is a dream come true."

The film was initially set to be released in December of 2020, though the global pandemic has made it anyone's guess whether the film will wrap for its anticipated premiere date. 

For now, we urge you to join us on the wild quest of Catherine the Great's life, brought to life in an incredible performance by this inimitable Hollywood sweetheart. 

The Great is streaming on Hulu.
