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