Elizabeth Olsen is Classy ... and Hot

Finally! An Olsen girl that we will be able to respect. Personally, I have hated the Olsen twins ever since their cute-whoring days on "Full House." (No one good is THAT cute. No one.) Ever since they grew into narcotic-addicted adults, I have just ignored their existence and damned them for being a bad influence on Heath Ledger. Now, the younger sister has returned to the spotlight after some serious training and acting. And I like it.

Good idea. Renouncing that hotbed of mediocrity, Olsen trained with the Atlantic Theater Company, then went all the way to Russia to study acting, dialect, and stage combat. Now, at 22, she's a legitimate Oscar contender for her haunting performance as a young woman under the sway of a creepy cult leader in the indie thriller Martha Marcy May Marlene. The most unnerving scene has her offered up naked as a ritual shag. Olsen didn't think twice about the nudity. "The movie wouldn’t have been as disturbing without it."

It's okay, Lizzy. (Can I call you Lizzy?) Most girls who refuse to show their knockers end up having nude cell phone pictures leaked online anyway. ScarJo, I'm looking at you.
