Elizabeth Olsen Joined Instagram for the Financial Opportunities

Elizabeth Olsen started a public Instagram account earlier this year and she’s not afraid to admit that she did it for the financial gain.

Many celebrities put up sponsored posts on social media, where a brand will pay them to endorse its product.

“I decided to join because I realized I was only taking something away from myself,” Elizabeth told the Los Angeles Times. “It’s so funny that people like to pretend that they’re maybe or maybe not getting paid to post something. Financially, it’s a brilliant opportunity. Like, I’d really love to be a brand ambassador. I’d love to do a campaign. I think sometimes working with brands or different cosmetic companies – that can help people recognize your face and then they go see your movies. I was only hurting my opportunities by not participating.”

Lizzie says that her older sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley, both supported her launching an Instagram account!

    She was open and honest about it. Good for her.

    I like the realness.

    It really is smart for all celebs to join social media. So many opportunities to promote their work, themselves or a cause they believe in.
    Brushing it off as unnecessary or sacrificing your privacy is stupid.

  • Casey C

    a lot of shows and movies now basically insist or require the stars to have social media accounts for precisely these reasons – get your face, and your show, into the public eye.

  • Sofia

    YES! Very smart move and I applaud her honesty.

    I did wonder why she joined because she said this just last year:

    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.”
