Elizabeth Olsen Covers Nylon October 2011

Posted Monday September 26, 2011 1:31 PM GMT

Landing her very first cover gig, Elizabeth Olsen is featured on the front page of the October 2011 issue of Nylon magazine.

The 22-year-old actress looked darling in a Chanel jacket paired with a Diesel shirt and Levi's shorts while chatting with the publication about growing up with her famous "Full House" sisters, as well as her theatrical beginnings and first time reading the "Martha Marcy May Marlene" script.

Highlights from Miss Olsen's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Nylon!

On reading the "Martha Marcy May Marlene" script:
"It was a really interesting feeling, where I just felt like I knew how to approach this. That doesn't happen too often with me."

On getting her start in acting on the theater stage: ““I just always thought that theater was different from being an actor in Hollywood for some reason. It was like this safe place where people aren’t harassed. But I was apprehensive because I saw how brutal people can be when other people put themselves out there.”

On growing up with Mary-Kate and Ashley being in the spotlight: “I have to attribute the way I have always looked at [work] to my father, because he was a really good influence on us. It was always very important to him that his daughters be financially independent. He wanted us to know that we could take care of ourselves, because he never liked the idea of us needing a man. And witnessing how my sisters can take care of themselves financially was a great model to have. I consider myself lucky to have such a normal family.”

Stylist Monique Bean on Elizabeth;s fashionable tastes:
"Elizabeth knew what she liked clothing-wise and had a really good eye for color and design. She absolutely loved Proenza Schouler's Navajo-inspired graphic knit pants and said she wanted to wear them even if they didn't look good on her, but they did! She also gravitated toward simple, classic looks - pieces influenced by menswear tailoring."

Makeup artist Linda Hay on Elizabeth's wonderful ways:
"Elizabeth is a classic beauty, bright and gracious."
