Boyd Holbrook Reveals How Elizabeth Olsen Broke Up with Him

Boyd Holbrook poses for the cover of Man of the World magazine’s issue No. 14, on sale now.

The 34-year-old actor opened up to the mag about his split from ex-fiancee Elizabeth Olsen, a break up that he refers to as a “divorce.” Here is what he said:

On how Elizabeth broke up with him: “On the same day that my best friend died, I got a call from my girl to tell me it was over.”

On the death of his best friend, photographer David Armstrong: “David was the first person in my life to encourage me. He told me to do everything I wanted to do. No one had ever told me that before. He was a very important figure in my life. Important figure is not even close to what he was.”

On the motorcycle trip up the Chilean coast that saved him: “I was consumed with my own personal depression, my own personal scenario at the time. What happened over the course of the journey was that I started noticing the different types of trees. I started noticing beauty, the details.”

On the roles he’s attracted to: “I like something that’s completely alien to me. I want to escape from my own skin so bad you have no idea. It crawls.”

    Why only men allowed to talk about their “cruel” girlfriends?

  • disqus_hIu0CSPKd5

    He comes off as the jerk divulging information like that just to make his ex-girlfriend look bad.

  • WhatTheWhat

    David Armstrong died on October 26, 2014, while Lizzy was filming ISTL with Hiddleston. This pretty much confirms what many thought all along… that THEO started an onset fling and have been casually hooking up since then.

  • Koos

    she showed her vagina for the first time?

  • Lady Macbeth

    I’m not surprised to read this. The way Tom and Lizzy have been using the rumors of their relationship for column inches then acting very coy about whether the rumors were true, spoke volumes to me.

    I agree with another commenter that they were keeping the door open to come out as a couple and stay together through Oscar season if their film was received favourably by the critics. Once the film was panned at TIFF they weren’t going to make an effort to keep things going long distance, hence all the breakup articles now being pushed by her publicist.

    If so, he would have revealed this peace of info a year ago, now *that* would ruin EO as this year has been a big one for her and things like this throw a shade. Yet he did not speak about it at all and both of them just carried on with their careers.

  • Jen

    Wasn’t there a lot of rumors about him having a very short temper, being a huge ass h*** and doing a lot of drugs?? Or am I confusing him with someone else??

    Anyways, he’s 8 years older than EO, and he proposed to her after only two years together and she being only 25…. Should not come as a huge surprise that she might want to “find herself” and explore more, before settling down. Not saying that it’s not possible to get married at age 25 (or younger), but I think it often can be a bit too young to get married.

    That is cheap. No wonder she broke up with him. He’s probably one of those guys that kiss and tells to everyone at the table while she is in the restroom.

    Nice work EO…how heartless can you be?!?

  • disqus_hIu0CSPKd5

    Then why talk about it to a magazine. Just don’t say anything.

  • Ance

    Because it hurts like a motherfucker to see a person you have loved not for one day but for years with “the other man” and hearing all kinds of assumtions as to whatever happened to your almost-marriage?
    That being said, I do not think that E.O. should be blamed and shamed. We’re all people, we sometimes do things that would seem cruel to others for reasons noone would ever understand or no reason at all.

  • sassafrass

    They were engaged.

    The only song and dance I’m seeing here is the “all for pr” angle that is being pushed by certain Hiddleston fans. They were spotted together all over Shrevesport months before the stories broke.

  • alex

    elizabeth olsen is a real whore:and I don’t understand because tom hiddleston fell in love with her:him don’t know who she are,but before or after he will know the real intention of this bitch:she was killed 2 time the ex boy with the sad new on his best friend and left him alone for tom:but TOM POMPOM WILL GOT FROM LIZZIEBITCHY A GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT BECAUSE HIM IS A FOOLISH MAN AND SHE IS A GREAT AMBITIOUS WHORE:NOW THEY FUCK,AND ONE DAY HER WILL LEAVES TOM FOR ANOTHER MOST FAMOUS MAN……….I HOPE THIS FOR BOYD AND FOR HIS FEELINGS OF LOVE,FRIENDSHIP AND JUSTICE!

  • Passing Through

    he is really a douche for doing this.

  • Chicken soup

    He and this girl exchange a lot of messages openly on his Facebook. Look her up. She works in the industry and not that pretty ibixby on Instagram. Seems smart maybe he’s into that. I saw him and obv girls were all over him, he was friendly and nice but never seemed interested.
