Elizabeth Olsen: 'I Know I’ve Worked Hard'

Elizabeth Olsen: 'I Know I’ve Worked Hard'

Elizabeth Olsen rocks pink hair and poses in a white Chanel dress for a feature in Bullett magazine’s Fall 2012 “Romance” issue.

Here is what the 23-year-old Liberal Arts actress had to share with the mag:

On working hard to make a name for herself on her own: “There’s definitely a reason why I went to so many acting conservatories. The more I trained, the less people could say, ‘Oh, she’s just so-and-so’s sister.’ They can still say that, sure—I have no control over that—but at least I know I’ve worked hard. There was definitely a time when I overcompensated, but I’m kind of over that.”

On her supportive father: “My dad’s greatest pleasure is watching his kids do what they want to do. Nowadays, he loves going to my sisters’ fashion shows or coming to visit me on set.”

Director Josh Radnor on Elizabeth: “You’d be surprised by how many young actors show up not knowing their lines. Lizzie isn’t one of them. She puts a lot of thought into her characters, but she doesn’t show her homework.”

Prettiest Olsen!

# 3

She should have won an oscar last year.

# 4

She looks really nice here.

# 5

Her nose is too small for her face.

# 6

I love Lizzie so much! But this seems like such a strange concept for a photoshoot that would be more suited for someone like Katy Perry or Lady Gaga. I would’ve much rather seen Lizzie in something more high fashion and traditional.

# 7


Can pink not be traditional? Strange isn’t always bad.

# 8

Prettier and looks more mature

# 9

Here comes the healthy Olsen!

Duh! Her nose is fake!

Crazy!! I hope its just a wig… With all her money she can quickly fix it though

For real Elizabeth? You worked that hard? And with 23 you are where you are just because of your hard work. Well, girl you can tell that to all the naive girls who believe c’rap like that…there are people who struggle well into their 40s to get where you are…so stop it with this ridiculous comments about separating yourself from your famous sisters…it’s your name that got you where you are,not your talent…and I’m not a hater…I just wish people would get real and say what’s the real deal…

she comes across as pretentious. JMO

She looks adorable and she’s talented!

I think she is pretty and she is a good actress.

I liker her attitude.

She can’t help that, #12. But she works hard and is genuinely talented. That’s all that should matter to us.

I love Lizzie Olsen. I think she’s great at what she does and is talented. She put in the work to be taken seriously, but I do agree that her name and famous her sisters opened so many doors for her. To be taken seriously though was her efforts, not her sisters. She hasn’t been doing mainstream movies, more independent films. If it was all completely based off her name and MK&A she would be MUCH MUCH MUCH more mainstream, but again I agree having famous sisters opened a lot of doors for her.
