Elizabeth Olsen talks nudity, paparazzi in the latest GQ issue
As far as growing up in the shadow of the Olsen twins, Elizabeth (or "Lizzie," as GQ refers to her), says, "The paparazzi were really frightening. I thought, Maybe I'll just skip that part."
And she largely did, until fairly recently. But now in 2011, she appears in three movies - "Silent House," "Peace, Love and Misunderstanding" and the aforementioned "Martha," for which Olsen is receiving some Oscar buzz for her portrayal of the young woman under the thrall of a cult leader.
She tells GQ she didn't even hesitate to do the nudity the piece called for. "The movie wouldn't have been as disturbing without it. Taking away someone's sexuality, making it something you don't even own anymore - that's the scariest thing," says Olsen.
"Martha Marcy May Marlene" premiered in the U.S. at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival back in January. There is no word yet as to a nationwide release.
