Comments Off on Elizabeth told she’s too young to star in a Hollywood rom-com
She’s one of Hollywood’s hottest up and coming leading ladies, but Elizabeth Olsen has been told she’s too young to star in romantic comedies. The 25-year-old just finished up starring in Godzilla, one of the year’s biggest hits at the box-office taking over $524million globally. But unfortunately she has revealed that she’s unable to land a leading role in a romantic comedy because she looks too young.
‘I love comedies and I love romantic comedies -I love bad ones,’ she said in an interview promoting the upcoming DVD release of Godzilla.
‘I have looked for them, and I’ve been talking to the right people.’The hard thing for me is that I look either my age or younger and I think right now the roles are for late twenties, early thirties for these really great comedies.’So I’m not there yet. It’s hard for me to play opposite men in their mid-to-late thirties.
‘It just looks wrong, I guess. But I’ll grow up one day.’ The younger sister of famous twins Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, the fashion forward beauty worked her way up through the indie film ranks before landing several major blockbusters. She’s set to play Marvel comic book heroine Scarlet Witch in The Avengers 2 with Robert Downy Jr and Chris Hemsworth, which is released next year.She’ll also stars alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the superhero flick as his twin sister, which is quite the twist from playing his wife in Godzilla. From lovers to siblings, Olsen said it was surprisingly not weird at all.
‘We only did a few scenes together for this film (Godzilla), but we spent time together in Vancouver and I got to know his family,’ she said, with the actor having two children to director Sam Taylor-Wood who is 23-years his senior. ‘And to play really tight twin brother and sister, I felt really lucky that it’s not with some guy I just met or something. ‘I think we both like the fact that we have this other film in our repertoire or something.’

Comments Off on Elizabeth joins Tom Hiddleston in “I Saw The Light”
Elizabeth Olsen has joined the cast of RatPac Entertainment and Bron Studios’ I Saw The Light, the film about the life of country western singer Hank Williams. Deadline’s Mike Fleming broke the news this summer that Tom Hiddleston nabbed the Williams role and will be singing classics like “Your Cheatin’ Heart”, “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and “Hey Good Lookin’”. Olsen will play Williams’ wife Audrey Mae. Marc Abraham is directing from his own script about Williams’ meteoric rise to fame, and the price that fame took on his personal life. He died at age 29 of heart failure.
Pic is based on the biography by Colin Escott and is produced by RatPac’s Brett Rather and Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert, along with G. Marq Roswell and Abraham. James Packer will executive produce for RatPac Entertainment. I Saw The Light is also a Creative Wealth Media Finance co-production. Olsen recently completed filming her superhero role in Marvel’s Avengers: The Age of Ultron after co-starring in Legendary’s monster hit Godzilla. She’s repped by The Gersh Agency, Brillstein Entertainment and Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern, LLP.
