Fanning told reporters she is inspired by the courageous kids living in the aftermath of the nuclear reactor’s meltdown in 1986.

She says, “I wasn’t even born when all that happened. Isn’t it crazy that it’s still affecting the lives of kids generations later? It’s sad. I think I’m being given the award as a role model to the young kids… I mean those kids are more like role models to me. They’re so brave!”
