The trailer of In Secret, previously known as Therese, has just been released and Elizabeth looks amazing!

admin   /   December 2, 2013

If all were right with the world, Elizabeth Olsen would be an Academy Award winner by now. As a scarred ex-cult member in 2011’s Martha Marcy May Marlene, Olsen (the younger sister of Mary Kate and Ashley) gave one of the finest breakthrough performances in recent memory, conveying a fractured psyche with eerie believability. The turn didn’t land Olsen a Best Actress nod, but it did open a great many doors for the 22-year-old, who has since played more beautiful-yet-troubled women in both last year’s Silent House and the newly released Oldboy—a remake of 2003’s South Korean cult classic. Directed by Spike Lee, the new film casts Olsen as Marie, a social worker who forms a bond with Joe Doucette (Josh Brolin), a rough-and-tough, long-imprisoned antihero who, as anyone who has seen the original knows, is tied to a horror house of unsettling secrets. Sitting down with Details at New York City’s Conrad Hotel, Olsen dished on the virtues of remakes, why fashion is tougher than film, and how she feels about nude scenes.

DETAILS: Was it a difficult decision to say, “Yes, I’m going to plunge into this edgy world of Oldboy?”

ELIZABETH OLSEN: I love how every time I talk about a movie with people, they assume that I was offered a part. [Laughs] I tried to get this job. I didn’t audition, because they didn’t ask me to, but I would have. I read the script, and it was my first experience with the story, and then I saw the [original] movie the same day. And I loved it. I was just like, “This is crazy. This is heart-wrenching. This is awful.” I never knew it was going to go where it ends up going.

Hey everyone. Capone in Chicago here.

What a difference a couple of years has made to actor Elizabeth Olsen, once know more for her more famous, older twin sisters, she has now become a serious actor in her own right in a handful of mostly interesting smaller films that have lead to a couple of much bigger parts in much bigger movies that should help her to achieve her ultimate goal of doing pretty much anything she wants. Not everything she’s done has been great (sorry, PEACE, LOVE & MISUNDERSTANDING), but she has never been caught giving anything but her best work. Hell, she even saved a couple of potential clunkers into something riveting (I’m looking at you SILENT HOUSE).

Like most, I first discovered her abilities thanks to a fearless performance in MARTHA MARCY MAY MALENE in 2011, which led to roles opposite Robert De Niro in RED LIGHTS, a host of great actors in LIBERAL ARTS, a bunch of Beat poets in KILL YOUR DARLINGS, and a couple of as-yet-unreleased films–VERY GOOD GIRLS with Dakota Fanning, and IN SECRET with Jessica Lange, among others.

And then, of course, there are her tent pole releases for the next couple years, director Gareth Edwards’ GODZILLA, and Joss Whedon’s THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, in which she’ll play the first live-action incarnation of the Scarlet Witch, both of which we talk about a bit in this interview. But the reason we hopped on the phone together recently was to discuss her role as social worker Marie in Spike Lee’s take on the Japanese manga OLDBOY, opposite Josh Brolin. Olsen provides the film with its much-needed heart and soul, in a work front loaded with nasty behavior and some truly gruesome violence.

Olsen is a genuinely nice woman, and an articulate and smart person, and I was fortunate enough a couple years ago to moderate a Q&A with her and MMMM writer-director Sean Durkin. It was so much more fun than I would have imagined a post-screening discussion might have gone after a movie that intense and serious. And only one dope in the audience asked a question about Mary Kate and Ashley, so not a bad day’s work. Anyway, please enjoy my chat with Elizabeth Olsen…

Elizabeth Olsen is one of the stars of the new Spike Lee joint, Oldboy, and we got the chance to meet with her in the posh Conrad New York Hotel.

Elizabeth was in a good mood, stopping in to greet Spike Lee before getting ready for a long day of press. When I walked into the room for our interview, she was getting her makeup touched up and greeted me with a smile and very firm handshake. From then on, I knew she was all business.

That didn’t stop me from opening up the interview with a few fun questions regarding a very dark movie. I jokingly asked Elizabeth if she was a bit jealous costar Josh Brolin got Spike Lee’s famous dolly shot, and she didn’t even judge me for calling it “a trolly shot.”

Elizabeth gushed about Spike Lee, saying, ”He has an awesome energy, I love him. I would love to work with him again.”

The younger sister of the Olsen Twins goes on to talk about the critical reaction to the film and even opens up about the first time she watched Do The Right Thing. If you’re wondering, there are no black people on the wall at the Olsen household.

“I don’t think so, just my ancestors, but none of them are black,” she says.

Oldboy is a remake of the 2003 cult hit from Korea of the same name and it opens in theaters November 27th.
