Elizabeth Olsen in Marie Claire May 2014: I'd Rather Be Known For My Work, Not The Clubs I Go To
While striking a few poses in designer duds from Margiela and Hearts on Fire for the Cedric Buchet-shot spread, the youngest Olsen sister opened up about everything from her famous siblings Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen to her booming career.
Highlights from Miss Olsen's Q&A session are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Marie Claire!
On her roles in Indie films:
"I didn't really have another option - those were the jobs I was getting. I feel very lucky that the reviews have been on my side, even when it comes to a project that isn't so great. I was seizing every opportunity. I'm not embarrassed by my work in them or anything - it's all learning. The cool thing is the studio pieces I have been lucky to become a part of are ensemble pieces, so it's not like I have this 'Hunger Games' on my back. It's not going to skyrocket on person; it's a team thing."
On her private life:
"I definitely know what kind of lifestyle I want to have. Some people recognize you for your work, not for being pictured going to clubs. So, I try and keep that kind of profile that people know you from your work and that's it. There are some jobs that I've said no, because i know what kind of attention they will bring. I choose not have that specific kind of attention."
On her sister's fashion line:
"God, no [I'm not their muse]. I just try and see what they do and copy them like the rest of the world does."
On her family's fame:
"Everyone has their handle to get over, and if mine is that I have to [prove] I've earned my jobs, I'm OK with that. I'm in it for a ride, and I'm in it for the long run."
