A source tells Radar Online that the siblings, who live on separate coasts, have completely different perspectives on being a Hollywood celebrity.
“They have something of a peace treaty, in the sense that Elle gets L.A. to herself, while Dakota is much happier in New York. Dakota is living off of the fortune she made as a child actor, instead of chasing after every big job under the sun,” the insider explained.
According to reports, Elle, 15, is currently working on four movie projects while Dakota enjoys herself in the Big Apple.
“Elle is the more ambitious one. Dakota is the one who could quit acting to start a band at the drop of a hat. Dakota is completely unimpressed with the red carpet culture in Hollywood, while Elle totally worships it,” explained the source.
Elle co-stars with Angelina Jolie in the forthcoming Maleficent, a remake of Disney's Sleeping Beauty. Sources claim that the actresses became very close during shooting and are planning on collaborating in other films.
Maleficent hits theaters on May 30, 2014.
