Is a feud really developing between Elle Fanning and Maisie Williams? One of the tabloids claims an incident on the red carpet of the Toronto International Film Festival has created tension between the Mary Shelley co-stars, but Gossip Cop looked into the story and we’ve exclusively learned the truth.

The actresses attended TIFF earlier this month to promote their upcoming movie about Frankenstein author Mary Shelley, but an article in the latest issue of OK! says Williams got annoyed with her co-star for offering tips on interacting with the press. “Elle was dishing out a lot of advice, as if this was Maisie’s first gig,” a so-called “source” tells the magazine.

The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to contend that Fanning told the “Game of Thrones” star “how to pose for photographers” and “it came across as patronizing.” The seemingly phony source adds, “Maisie handled it well, but you could see her rolling her eyes at times. She tried not to stand next to Elle for the photos, though often she had no choice.”

But Gossip Cop looked into the alleged situation, and we’re exclusively told it never happened. An insider further assures us Fanning and Williams get along quite well. In fact, the actresses had nothing but kind words to say about each other during red carpet interviews at the film festival. This is simply a non-issue.

Additionally, this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has had to debunk a supposed feud between co-stars during the press tour for their film. We previously busted OK!‘s sister publication, Star, for falsely claiming Daisy Ridley refused to do interviews with Star Wars: The Force Awakens co-star John Boyega because of his allegedly oversized ego. We also called out RadarOnline for wrongly reporting The House co-stars Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler “can’t stand each other,” but were forced to “play nice” on the red carpet. This latest article is similarly unfounded.
