Posted on May 1, 2014
Elizabeth Olsen covers the June 2014 issue of Marie Claire UK. The magazine calls her "Hollywood's new sweetheart" in the cover feature. Elizabeth has a busy film schedule. She is in two big upcoming movies, Godzilla (May 2014) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). Elizabeth talked to Marie Claire UK about Michelle Pfeiffer, riding the subway unnoticed and how her sisters helped her stay grounded.
On How Michelle Pfeiffer Inspired Her: "I never had a heart-throb or a band I loved, but I had Michelle Pfeiffer, so I tried to copy what my friends would do and had magazine pictures cut out in frames.' Besides gazing at her idol's beauty, she used Michelle as inspiration. 'She was the reason I wanted to be an actor."
On Being Able to Ride the Subway Without Getting Recognized: "I hope that never changes. I'm never bothered anywhere. Only occasionally someone will say, 'Have we met before? You look so familiar'."
On How Her Sisters Helped Her: "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."
