Elizabeth Olsen - Elizabeth Olsen Finds Nude Scenes Empowering

Actress Elizabeth Olsen has no problem stripping off on camera because she only chooses to disrobe for roles which make her feel empowered.

The 24-year-old beauty, younger sister of twin fashion moguls Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, bared all for scenes in the critically-acclaimed Martha Marcy May Marlene in 2011, and she has taken off her clothes once again for director Spike Lee's remake of cult Korean thriller Oldboy, in which she engages in love scenes with leading man Josh Brolin.

However, Olsen insists there is never anything sexy about the scenes she gets naked for.

She tells the New York Daily News, "I truly believe in the films I've chosen to be nude (in). It helps tell a more grotesque story. There's nothing gratuitous about it, and it creates the opposite of pleasure. I find it empowering."

Olsen recently told Wenn she really felt for her Oldboy co-star Brolin during their sex scenes, because she is just five years older than his daughter, Eden.

She said, "It was probably weirder for him than for me because he has a daughter my age, so I'm sure that was weird for both of them."
