Elizabeth Olsen: V Magazine’s New Ingenue

Elizabeth Olsen steps out from the shadows of older sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley and poses for a feature in V Magazine’s “The Discovery Issue”, nominated as the “New Ingenue” by feature debut “Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding” co-star Chace Crawford. Eschewing her older sisters’ child-acting road to success and refusing the many built-in connections that would get her to the top through the “who you know” route, Olsen took the high road. She did children’s theater and school plays, studied acting at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, and even studiedRead More

Speaking candidly to MTV, Emma Stone (aka Gwen Stacy) goes into some great detail regarding the “Spider-Man” reboot, including the fact that filming begins in two weeks and that at the moment she, Spidey himself Andrew Garfield and director Marc Webb are deep into pre-production. “Today I went and did hair tests, because I have blonde hair now since Gwen has blonde hair.
