Marie Claire’s June 2014 Cover Girl Elizabeth Olsen

33ctatx

An indie girl at heart
Lizzie (as she prefers to be called) first flexed her talents when she captured 2011′s Sundance Film Festival with a haunting portrayal of vulnerable Martha Marcy May Marlene who escaped a disturbing cult and doomed future in the eponymous indie film. Further showcasing her acting credentials, the 25-year-old went on to star in subsequent indies Silent House, Kill Your Darlings and Spike Lee’s rework of the Japanese film Oldboy, proving exactly why she’s hot on Hollywood’s radar right now.

From cult hits to blockbuster glitz
Landing a major role in new-release Godzilla alongside hunky Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Breaking Bad lead Bryan Cranston, Lizzie made her move into the mainstream. Continuing her commercial journey, she also bagged the part of Wanda the Scarlet Witch in Marvel’s sequel to The Avengers hitting cinemas in 2015.

Lizzie’s laid bare
Not only is the stunning starlet brimming with brains and beauty, she’s not afraid to push boundaries and acting taboos, all which make her a force to be reckoned with. Stripping off for numerous art house and film projects, Lizzie has appeared totally nude in everything from Martha Marcy May Marlene to her forthcoming release In Secret. Talk about a bold, sassy move.

Her heart-throb is a female screen siren
Could she be any cooler? Lizzie told Marie Claire: ‘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.’

She’s a down-to-earth dreamer
Living alongside her sisters in US fashion capital New York, a super-stylish Lizzie revealed she still rides the subway and enjoys being totally unrecognisable. ‘I hope that never changes,’ she confessed. ‘I’m never bothered anywhere. Only occasionally someone will say, “Have we met before? You look so familiar.”‘

Her fiancĂ©’s a total hunk (naturally)
She got engaged to American actor, and soon-to-be star of Gone Girl, Boyd Holbrook in March 2014 after almost two years together. His blue eyes, dirty blonde hair and to-die-for body make the perfect companion for lovely Lizzie. With sister Mary-Kate also set to wed, could there be a joint Olsen wedding on the horizon?
