Elizabeth Olsen Gives In to Social Media Pressures
Elizabeth Olsen wasn't a big fan of social media until she took on a role starring alongside Aubrey Plaza in the new movie Ingrid Goes West. Olsen's character, Taylor Sloane, is a social media influencer and the spark for the actress's new perspective.
Olsen initially joined Instagram to get into the mindset of her role, but she's going to continue with the app now that she's had a taste according to the Los Angeles Times.
“I decided to join because I realized I was only taking something away from myself,” Olsen said in her interview.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron star added, “It’s so funny that people like to pretend that they’re maybe or maybe not getting paid to post something. Financially, it’s a brilliant opportunity. Like, I’d really love to be a brand ambassador. I’d love to do a campaign. I think sometimes working with brands or different cosmetic companies — that can help people recognize your face and then they go see your movies. I was only hurting my opportunities by not participating.”
Olsen maintains a sense of humor about her transition into the world of social media, telling the L.A. Times, "I’m bad at it. I’m bad at the lighting. I’m bad at the framing. I’m bad at the editing. When I look at my food, it looks pretty. When I look at it on a phone, it looks not pretty.”
Be on the lookout for Olsen on Instagram to see whether her efforts improve in the future.
