Elizabeth Olsen Talks Wedding Plans in Marie Claire UK June 2014
The “Martha Marcy May Marlene” actress donned a variety of 1960s-inspired ensembles and chatted about her recent engagement to boyfriend Boyd Holbrook.
Elizabeth explained, “I'm relaxed about it, but I am excited and planning ideas because it's fun - It's just like throwing a party to celebrate life. I love being in a relationship a lot.”
When asked about a double wedding with her also-engaged older sister Mary-Kate Olsen, she laughed, “No, I just told her she gets to pick a date first!”
Olsen also described the role her twin sisters have played in helping her prepare for fame. “Because my sisters were so grounded, it helped me be grounded. They never got caught up in things. I did live a charmed life. We got to go on vacations and lived in nice homes and I got to play club volleyball and ballet, which you don't realize as a kid are expensive. My mom would say things like, ‘Lizzie, we are not the Rockefellers!’ That put things into perspective.”
And as for her previous penchant for nudity on screen, Elizabeth declared, “I don't want to be known for that. I'm keeping my clothes on for a couple of years. I've noticed that if you're a young actress and you're about to make your first movie where you show your boob or butt, it's an epic moment in your life, like, ‘I finally did nudity!’ If you don't have that stigma, then it's not a big deal.”
