Actress Elizabeth Olsen will not be sitting through the screening of her new movie Old Boy at its New York premiere on Monday night (11Nov13) because she has learned she is not a fan of watching herself on screen.
The Martha Marcy May Marlene star will walk the red carpet with co-stars Michael Imperioli and Josh Brolin and director Spike Lee, but then she'll be heading home.
She tells Wenn, "I haven't seen the film in its final form. I saw it in one of it's earlier versions before sound and colour correction, but I'm not gonna watch it tonight. It's the first time I'm at a premiere and not sitting through the movie.
"I learned in Toronto (at the film festival) that I really don't enjoy watching myself do those things in front of an audience. And I'm tired. I finished a seven-week run of a play yesterday and I really just want to go home after doing my business at the premiere."
