Elizabeth Olsen On The Life Lessons Her Famous Sisters Taught Her


THE YOUNGEST Olsen sister has spoken out about her admiration for her sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and the sage advice they have passed onto her.

Speaking to Modern Luxury magazine, Elizabeth Olsen said how her twin sisters – who famously grew up under constant media scrutiny – advised the young actress to approach interviews with considered care: “I was not caring what I was saying [in interviews] because I’d assumed no one would read it. That’s when we’d have conversations. [Mary-Kate and Ashley] would say, ‘You know, even if you don’t think anyone’s going to read this article, someone might pull the quote later [for something else]. It’s all part of how you hope someone interprets you, and how they frame who you are and the work you do… They’re very tight-lipped — notoriously so.”

“I still deal with so many anxieties of how I come across,” she added. “I’ll go home at night, spinning with a guilt complex of, ‘Did I say something stupid to that person who I respect? Do they think I’m a freak?’ I don’t want to think like that anymore.”

As well as guarding her words, the Olsens (unsurprisingly) advised Elizabeth to keep her relationships and private life to herself. “If it only involves me, then I’ll share it, but if it involves another party ever, then I won’t,” she explained. In the past, she has been linked to a few leading men, Tom Hiddleston and singer-songwriter Robbie Arnett included. “I don’t want to tell anyone else’s story,” she said.

In a separate interview, this time for ES Magazine, the Avengers star spoke fondly about her sisters and how she looks up to them. “I just think they’re brilliant women. [On their brand] they’re like, ‘I like this. I like this world. I like art, I like architecture, I like photography, I like fashion,’ and they’ve made it into a company… I’ll go visit them at the office and sit in a meeting if I’m in and out of town. They’ll be talking about piping or buttons [and] they have taught me about art.”

Fashion may be a subject of interest for the twins – and despite being a firm front row fixture at Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior shows and a Miu Miu and Marc Jacobs favourite – the Ingrid Goes West star admits that the red carpet is far from her comfort zone. “I went to a Dior show and ended up getting to wear a look to the premiere in New York. I felt great that night just because I felt like I was in something that I love. Sometimes when I’m not in something that I love I cry on the way to the premiere and I’m posing with my shoulders as far back as they go. Then I look at the photos and I’m like, ‘It did look nice. Why was I crying?’” Why, indeed.
