Elizabeth Olsen not interested in action movies

Elizabeth Olsen has ruled out shooting an action film, insisting she prefers to "be immersed and get hooked" on researching more complex scripts.

The actress, whose older sisters are former child stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, has made a name for herself with a string of roles in hard-hitting dramas, including her debut as a woman who escapes from a cult in Martha Marcy May Marlene.


Elizabeth Olsen is now one of Hollywood's most in-demand young stars, but she admits she has no plans to sign up for a hit blockbuster.


She tells Britain's Empire magazine, "(I have) no intention to do an action film. There's a film I just read that was a really smart, comic book-y action movie - and I read every single page, even though I had zero interest in doing it.


"As much as I'd love to see it, I didn't wanna play that girl. But that's just me. I want to be immersed, get hooked. I wanna do research!"
