Jenna Dewan is starting over. And it might just be her most exciting role yet. Photography by Mike Rosenthal
At her ELLE cover shoot in sunny Los Angeles, Dewan—who was interviewed by her friend, the hairstylist Jen Atkin—was optimistic about the future. Speaking about her new production company, Everheart, Dewan says she increasingly felt the need to make her own stories.
Throughout the shoot, Dewan dances, poses and reflects on the changes to come in her life. She feels a lot of inspiration, she says, to examine what she really wants from life.

That’s the Way Love Goes Jenna Dewan by Mike Rosenthal
You can tell the story of Elle Fanning through the things she does, but also through the things she does not do. Fanning would rather not sit still, for instance. She does not tweet. She does not learn her lines until the night before she shoots them (then she memorizes them in the bath) and does not watch her own talk-show appearances (“It’s like hearing your voice on an answering machine”). She does not appreciate it when the paparazzi trail her to the gym, because she thinks she’s not famous enough to merit the commotion. (“The rest of the world is like, ‘Who is that person?’ I’m like, ‘I’m sorry!’ ”) When people now stop Fanning on the street (“Are you——”), she tries not to reply, “Dakota Fanning’s sister!” Fanning, then, would not be the first person—and might actually be the last—to realize what a rare and even spooky star Fanning, at nineteen, has become.
