Elizabeth Olsen Is a Golden Girl at Gotham Film Awards (PHOTOS)
The 22-year-old actress was nominated that evening for Best Breakthrough Actor for her role in Martha Marcy May Marlene but lost to Like Crazy’s Felicity Jones.
Although she’s finally stepping out of her sisters’ shadows, Lizzie recently explained that it was difficult defining herself when all eyes were on them.
“My whole life they’ve been like women, while I’ve been trying to be a woman but still a kid,” she confessed in the December issue of Marie Claire. “I’ve always had a complex about being taken seriously. I never wanted anyone to think that I would use my family name to get me anywhere.”
Well, Martha Marcy is sure to rocket Olsen to the top of every director and studio’s wish-list. Elizabeth’s performance in the intense film is phenomenal and already creating a lot of award show buzz!
