Elizabeth Olsen Looks Up to Jennifer Lawrence & Rooney Mara
Here’s what the 26-year-old Captain America: Civil War star had to share with the mag:
On why she likes being low-key: “A lot of the time in my life, I try not to take up space—I just want to disappear into a wall. And then eventually, when I’m around people I feel confident with, I’ll take up more space.”
On why she avoids social media: “I just have an old-school mindset. Also, girls I look up to, like Jennifer Lawrence, Rooney Mara and Alicia Vikander, don’t have it, and it hasn’t affected their careers remotely…I’d rather live as private a life as I can. I’m not trying to be a mysterious person, but I’d rather be seen as an actor from job to job. I’ve never lived my life trying to be an influencer; I’m happy keeping my own opinions for fun dinner conversation.”
On her style: “I’ve been very conservative, but I’m trying to allow myself to feel confident with being sexy. There was also an Annie Hall phase in high school where she wore suspenders and blazers…Now I like being a woman and I like wearing dresses, but my comfort zone isn’t frilly and girlie.”
