Bullett Magazine - Volume 8 - The Romance Issue

With her new movie "Liberal Arts" set to hit theaters on September 14th, Elizabeth Olsen snatched up a piece of the spotlight by covering the Fall 2012 issue of Bullett magazine.

The 23-year-old actress looked enchanting in a white Chanel dress with Dior jewelry for the Jeff Bark shot front page with a colorful, artsy spread inside what's been dubbed by the publication as "Volume 8: The Romance Issue."

Meanwhile, a few highlights from Miss Olsen's accompanying interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Bullett!

On her 'Liberal Arts' character zibby offering Jesse her virginity:
“Being 35 and taking a girl’s virginity? That’s crazy... If I were an older man and I saw a girl my age, who maybe didn’t know herself that well, I would find her so unappealing, because if you’re in it for sex, the sex won’t be that great. But when I see a woman in her 40s and up, I think, God, you know a lot. One day, I’ll get to be desired like you.”

On her supportive father:
“My dad’s greatest pleasure is watching his kids do what they want to do. Nowadays, he loves going to my sisters’ fashion shows or coming to visit me on set.”

On her thought that being single is necessary to love thyself:
“It’s made me appreciate the things that I need to feel fulfilled. Sometimes, when I’m in a relationship, I get so excited to be around the other person that I forget to indulge the things that I need to be happy on a day-to-day basis. Or at least I did—I’m such a different person now than I was two years ago.”

On working hard to make a name for herself on her own:
"There’s definitely a reason why I went to so many acting conservatories. The more I trained, the less people could say, ‘Oh, she’s just so-and-so’s sister.’ They can still say that, sure—I have no control over that—but at least I know I’ve worked hard. There was definitely a time when I overcompensated, but I’m kind of over that.”

Director Josh Radnor on Elizabeth Olsen:
“You’d be surprised by how many young actors show up not knowing their lines,” he says. “Lizzie isn’t one of them. She puts a lot of thought into her characters, but she doesn’t show her homework.”
