Elizabeth Olsen broke out in a big way last year thanks to her turn as a former cult member in the indie “Martha Marcy May Marlene.” And she’ll continue down the dark and creepy path in this week’s goose-bump-inducing horror flick “Silent House,” playing a girl trapped inside her family’s lake house while bad things happen inside. As Elizabeth cuts her scream queen teeth, we’re awarding her another title: this week’s Girl Crush honor.
As to her own Girl Crushes, Elizabeth admitted (rather refreshingly) that none of the lovely ladies are actually famous. “I have a crush on so many girls. I don’t know if any of them are actors,” she said with a laugh. “I think they’re just friends of mine.”
Even better! We should all be so lucky as to be friends with our Girl Crushes. So, hypothetically speaking, if one wanted to be BFFs with Lizzie (we’re on a nickname basis now), what sort of attributes would one need to possess?
“What make a Girl Crush for me are girls who just speak without abandon and are so quick—anyone who is really witty or quick in general,” she said. “It requires so much intelligence. So girls who are like that, I have Girl Crushes on. Humor always gets me.”
And we’ll be dusting off our copy of “101 Hopelessly Hilarious Jokes” in 5, 4, 3…
