Elizabeth Olsen, the prettier, much more talented Olsen, posed for Bullett Magazine in some weird pastel photoshoot where she’s sporting pink hair. The mag says it’s a “romance” theme but this is just weird. For men at least. This is what I imagine pops into women’s heads when they read 50 Shades of Grey. Anyway, she tells the mag how she overcompensated for being an Olsen.
“There’s definitely a reason why I went to so many acting conservatories. The more I trained, the less people could say, ‘Oh, she’s just so-and-so’s sister.’ They can still say that, sure — I have no control over that — but at least I know I’ve worked hard. There was definitely a time when I overcompensated, but I’m kind of over that.”
At this point, she doesn’t need to worry about people saying she’s Mary-Kate and Ashley’s sister. She’s critically acclaimed while her sisters are critically panned. She looks young and fresh-faced while her sisters look like homeless witches casting spells around New York. I’m pretty sure the first thing casting directors say when they find out she’s an Olsen is, “You’re probably not related to Mary-Kate and Ashley, huh?”
