We got the chance to chat with Elle Fanning — who plays Cranston's daughter in the film — at the Toronto International Film Festival, and she pretty much confirmed what we've thought all along: he's insanely incredible on-screen and off.

We were doing this scene where he's on this stage and he's talking and in between takes, there were a lot of extras, and he would be in his Dalton Trumbo voice and he'd be telling all these jokes to everyone! It was just like, that's how you should be, I think. So I learned from that.

Trumbo is now playing in theaters everywhere!
