Elizabeth Olsen is the kind of actress who can do no wrong. Her career spans over four decades. She is an icon in her own right. A star for our times.
Throughout her varied and vast career, Elizabeth has managed to change us completely. Her contributions to our culture are innumerable. From stage to screen, from pulp to screen, from film to TV, from public speaking to charity, from politics to singing, from musing to acting, Elizabeth has defined the very identity of women as we know them. She has been the epitome of what a woman should be.
But Elizabeth is not a one-size-fits-all. She has faced challenges and triumphs, some great, some less so. And she has come out trumps time again. Now, at the age of 65, she continues to lead the way.
We have all seen her in “Gaslight” again. But it was her performance as Olsen in the movie version of “Gaslight” that made her a star. Playing an aging woman who knows what she wants and how to get it, without going through the usual motions, is what makes her an icon. Playing a character who goes from rags to riches, from tragedy to triumph, and back again is what earns her the title of a superstar.
There is one aspect of Elizabeth Olsen’s persona that needs to be recognized. Her never-ending desire to make a positive change in the world. In her career, she has given countless causes and activities to help our society. She has helped raise millions of dollars for cancer research and continues to support many groups fighting diseases such as AIDS and breast cancer. She has worked tirelessly for us and continues to lend her name and her smile to many who need it most.
Her smile is a gift to all of us. A star who gives us hope. A survivor who has overcome cancer and went on to beat it. A survivor who understands that hard times bring us to the same place we were when we were down.
The same message is sent by Elizabeth on the “The Firm” DVD. She plays a strong and powerful woman, who is able to take the bad with good, and win the good with more good. She doesn’t let herself worry about what people think of her, or how they act toward her. She knows she is valuable and loved, and that her heart and spirit are stronger than any disease or disability. She is an example to us of how to be strong and true to ourselves.
A woman’s ability to see herself as someone worthy of love, affection, and support is what separates her from the rest. She is not self-pitying or seeking sympathy. She knows how to get past the bad feelings and put on a smile so big that the sky is actually “the limit.” And she does it with humor, kindness, and love.
On top of all that, Elizabeth Olsen makes us realize that beauty is not always skin deep. She knows we have so much more than our face for the soul. We should value ourselves, feel beautiful, laugh hard, cry hard, and have a lot of confidence in our dreams and goals. We should feel positive and secure in this world, because we have the power and beauty to inspire, motivate, and positively affect others. This is one woman who knows how to uplift us.
In the final analysis, we have a star. Elizabeth is definitely an exemplary woman. She knows how to handle life’s difficulties. She is a survivor. She is beautiful. She is loving.
Her smile is infectious. Her quotes are priceless. Her talents, her gifts, and her character have touched the lives of many. Elizabeth is definitely a force to be reckoned with, and a true superstar for our times.
Her books, articles, and interviews have inspired us. They have given us hope. They have given us a light at the end of the tunnel. The future is looking bright for all of us.
