'The Sun Also Rises' by Ernest Hemingway is my favorite book. You feel manly reading it.

I've never read a young adult novel, though. I'm sure I would love it, but I've never read one.

Elizabeth Olsen

But I have a list of books that I want to read before I die, and whenever I get time to read something that isn't a script, I'll read something from that.

Elizabeth Olsen

Normally I don't feel like having a belly full of pasta.

Elizabeth Olsen

I've only done one shoot where it's modeling clothes, not like me in my environment. And the stylist, literally, I had her stand behind the photographer and do poses.

Elizabeth Olsen

I'm the curvy one of the family.

Elizabeth Olsen

When I was 13, I told my parents I didn't believe in God any more. Religion should not be about determining women's freedoms.

Elizabeth Olsen

I'm terrified of improv. Improv in a show or in front of an audience sounds terrifying.

Elizabeth Olsen

People don’t need careers. People should just exist.

Elizabeth Olsen

I think every time you start a job, it's good to remember that everyone's kind of in the same boat, no one knows what they're doing. Everyone thinks that they don't know what they're doing.

Elizabeth Olsen

I would mimic what I saw in Grease and Guys and Dolls in front of my mom's mirror and I would practice voices and songs. When you put me alone in a room, that's what I would do.

I'm the first one who sees every romantic comedy in theaters.

Elizabeth Olsen

I'm kind of a nerd when it comes to literature and theory. I wish I could have more of that in life, but I don't because I'm always reading scripts or things to prepare for movies when I'm reading.

Elizabeth Olsen

I'm a very social person and I love being out in the world, and the feeling of not having that is the scariest thing to me.

Elizabeth Olsen

We leave Scarlet Witch without a home, without a family, and she ends up creating a surrogate family within the Avengers and making a decision to be a part of the team. I think a lot of that has to do with what Jeremy's character - like his attitude towards her and the speech he gives her at the end of the film. So we pick up with her having started a new life, but still trying to figure out what her abilities are and if using them causes greater good or greater damage.

Elizabeth Olsen

I just think my family is so normal, but no one wants to accept that. I find my family to be normal because there's an understanding of what every job entails. And it is a job. It's not this fantasy that Hollywood and movies are all glitter and stardust.

Elizabeth Olsen

I think part of that comes from time's passed, and she's been in an environment where training is part of the thing. It's not like we do a montage of her discovering her powers like in every X-Men film but yeah, there's no montage. But she does have these new abilities that we pick her up with.

Elizabeth Olsen

I think there's something unique in the fact that her powers come from the same thing that powers him, and that is how we've made them have that kind of... that specifically in common, as opposed to it being something else that the comics kind of created, which has been pure romance. But they do have something uniquely special because of that.

Elizabeth Olsen

What is this land of Instagram, social media? Having a lot of likes and a lot of followers, and getting paid for it? I kind of found it to be really twisted, but then I started to see how it worked, and see how powerful it was, and how impressionable we all are.

Elizabeth Olsen

Probably the most difficult scene to film was the one where I'm attacked. I haven't thought about it in a while because, in hindsight, you make jokes about it and you get funny stories from it. When I was talking about it earlier today, I started to realize that it took a couple days probably to get over. Even if you can laugh about it, it's still the physical things that your body has to go through, it's pretty insane.

Elizabeth Olsen

I like being able to play make believe as my job. I think I played make-believe growing up a little too long - probably to an inappropriate age. I played make-believe until I was, like, 13 and probably should have been doing something else. But other than that, it's fun to be able to have to learn about different people.

Elizabeth Olsen

I think she by this point has learned that Stark's not specifically responsible for her parents' death - that it's more something that has to do with him stopping... I think there's even a reference to him stopping his selling of weapons because they cause damage.

I really actually enjoy auditioning.

Elizabeth Olsen

I'm the curvy one of the family.

Elizabeth Olsen

Elizabeth Olsen

My friends and I started making films when I was still in kindergarten.

Elizabeth Olsen

I never wanted anyone to think that I would use my family name to get me anywhere.

Elizabeth Olsen

I feel it is obvious when someone has thought too much about what they're wearing.

Elizabeth Olsen

My brother knows more about film sets than I do, because he works at New York Film Academy.

Elizabeth Olsen

I'm terrified of improv. Improv in a show or in front of an audience sounds terrifying.

Elizabeth Olsen

It's interesting to watch myself with an audience; I'm trying hard to learn from it.

Elizabeth Olsen

I think every day you try to soak up as much as you can to learn and understand things better.

Elizabeth Olsen

'The Sun Also Rises' by Ernest Hemingway is my favorite book. You feel manly reading it.

Elizabeth Olsen

I always went to see independent films, they're the movies I'm usually most excited to see.

Elizabeth Olsen

I've never read a young adult novel, though. I'm sure I would love it, but I've never read one.

Elizabeth Olsen

I don't know about you, but my girlfriends have been my girlfriends forever, and they're my sisters and my family.

Elizabeth Olsen

I auditioned equally for film and theater. The difference is that theater has seasons, while film, it's always happening.

Elizabeth Olsen

And I think in theater, people don't really focus on the media unless there's a huge superstar doing a play or something.

Elizabeth Olsen

I find acting conservatories really important. I've gone to four different ones, and all of them provided totally different tools for me.

Elizabeth Olsen

If you don't like something, talk about something else that's great and maybe someone else will discover it and think it's great too.

Elizabeth Olsen

But I have a list of books that I want to read before I die, and whenever I get time to read something that isn't a script, I'll read something from that.

Elizabeth Olsen

Movies are in a much longer production conversation before an actor is even involved. I always thought of actors as the last piece of the puzzle - so you're a tool.

Elizabeth Olsen

I've only done one shoot where it's modeling clothes, not like me in my environment. And the stylist, literally, I had her stand behind the photographer and do poses.

Elizabeth Olsen

I was embarrassed that I even wanted to become an actress because coming from L.A., with two older sisters in the business and a mom who had been a ballet dancer, it was such a cliche.

Elizabeth Olsen

I think a lot of films do themselves a disfavor by putting in way too much information, and everyone knows what's gonna happen next, and no one can actually discover things as they go.

Elizabeth Olsen

I never understood why anyone would do magazines. Like, why would someone put their face out there so much? It's because those people reading magazines will go see the movie, so you do it.

Elizabeth Olsen

Everyone is always surprised by how old I am. They think I'm older, but it's always been that way. I'm the youngest of four - maybe you grow up quicker because you just watch the big people.

Elizabeth Olsen

What keeps you confident in a healthy way is knowing that everyone else around you is going to support you and teach you and you're going to learn from them. I just feel open to learning from people.

Elizabeth Olsen

And at NYU, I went to the Atlantic Theater Company, and they have two main points. One of them is to always be active in something instead of just feeling it. And the other is figuring out your character.

Elizabeth Olsen

When I was 14 or 15, I was a really good volleyball player, so I thought, 'Well, maybe I'll just get a scholarship to an Ivy League school through volleyball.' Then I quit when I decided to focus on theater.

Elizabeth Olsen

My favorite thing about acting is you have to learn how to work with people that you probably would never try to. Some people just aren't supposed to be in a room together, and you have to be in a room with a group of people who might not all get along and you have to figure out how to come together for one thing. That collaboration is special, and people don't get to exercise that. I think that's why people become stubborn, and I think that's why people become uninspired to change. In this job you have to.
