Elizabeth Olsen Loves Auditioning

Elizabeth OlsenElizabeth Olsen loves auditioning - even though she no longer has to.

The Martha Marcy May Marlene actress admits she likes to go into a casting meeting and read aloud so she knows those behind a film know exactly what they are going to get when they work with her.

"I love auditioning. I've always liked it. It's so funny -- now I don't really audition. You have meetings and I'm like, 'I'll read for you. Do you want me to read for you?' Because I like it. I think it's an important part of the process where you get to say, 'This is what I've thought. Do you jive with it?'"

Elizabeth - who is the sister of famous twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen - won a lot of critical acclaim for her role in Martha Marcy... and is now excited to "have choices'', but is finding it means she is signing up to every movie role she is being offered.

"What's happening right now for me is that I'm, first off, so excited that right now I have choices. So I'm going through this thing where I'm like, 'I'll do that and I'll do that and I'll do that.' I want to do everything because I've never been in a position like this before, so it's really exciting. So I'm doing a small part in this Allen Ginsberg movie, Kill Your Darlings. I'm in four scenes. I can't wait to work on it. So that's cool. Then I get to do a movie with Glenn Close for three months of my life, and I'm very excited to do that, and that's a period piece."
