Elizabeth Olsen looks chic sporting a pair of red leather gloves in the September issue of Glamour magazine. The 23-year-old actress is gearing up for the release of her latest project, Liberal Arts, in which she stars opposite Josh Radnor — check out the new Liberal Arts trailer. Elizabeth is currently filming Very Good Girls in her hometown of NYC, but she broke from work to open up about fame and how she is handling it all in the publication. As the younger sister of famous twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, she also discusses the weight of carrying the Olsen name. Here's more from Elizabeth Olsen in Glamour magazine:

  • She doesn't trade on her name: "My last name has always been my motivator to get proper acting training and be taken seriously. I didn't get to where I am because of who I'm related to."
  • On how she's juggling it all: "I love school, but I got cast in Martha while I was at New York University. So I was like, screw it. I'll take this semester off. I'm still trying to figure out how I can finish my degree while doing all this!"
  • She's weirded out by fame:: "Yesterday three people told me that I look like Elizabeth Olsen. That's never happened before. So awkward."
