Elizabeth Olsen Dishes "Avengers" & "Godzilla" in Flaunt
After her photo shoot with Hunter & Gatti, the 25-year-old actress discussed keeping "Avengers: Age of Ultron" secrets under wraps and opened up about transitioning from "Godzilla" to the superhero flick.

"Any time they give us a call sheet or any time there’s a new draft, they have to shred our old papers. I don’t think I’m allowed to say anything! And I’m too terrified. I really just feel like I’m doing something that’s top secret and somehow has a lot more importance than anything else I’ve been around, so that alone is hilarious. I want to take a photo and send to my friends, not that I want to tweet or Instagram it, just for personal reasons—and I feel like I’m going to get in trouble if I take a photo on set!”
“Godzilla just looks so, so special and unique, and that’s something that I don’t think monster films have been able to do yet. When it’s a monster, I think people tend to make things a little cartoony. This film puts the world in a fantastical position but handles it seriously.”
On transitioning between the two films:
“Especially with a situation like The Avengers where there’s already an established franchise, you’re the newbies. That’s kind of intimidating. But I feel like I swing back and forth. I’ve been prepping this since January, at least, so I kind of feel like I have some understanding of what’s going on already, which is nice.”
On current films in Hollywood:
“I don’t really feel like there’s a world of the ‘middle-budget’ film at all right now. You’re either making blockbusters and films for the Oscars, or an independent. I don’t really see where people are making anything in between that. Sometimes you’ll get a film studio that’ll invest in a movie that has a beautiful story and director behind it, those are just the hardest ones to get made and for everyone to sign-off on. And those are the ones I’ve been chasing for the last year and a half, and they’re just not happening. You’re just waiting for people to take risks.”
