Elizabeth Olsen Thinks Her Acting Gift is a 'Bottomless Well of Sadness'
Here’s what the 26-year-old Avengers: Age of Ultron star had to share with the mag:
On feminism: “Feminism has been such an obsession and no one really knows what definition anyone is talking about. It’s such a hot topic. Of course, women should have equal pay—I care about being equal to anyone else. [The word equality] is a very important part of the history of women’s rights.”
On her acting powers: “One time [actress Jessica Lange] called her acting gift a bottomless well of sadness. I think I was born with that, too.”
On staying off social media: “I don’t [use] social media, and I feel like that’s how people control their image. My image, in my mind, is just to disappear. I just want people to see the work that I’m proud of. I feel like you let people touch you when you have Instagram or Twitter, and I don’t want to be touched all the time. I’m not going to do it—ever.”
On millennial stereotypes: “It is so annoying to me the way my generation is written about—that we are all entitled slackers and hackers.”
