Elizabeth Chase “Lizzie” Olsen is an American actress and singer. She is best known for her roles in the films Silent House, Liberal Arts and the critically acclaimed Martha Marcy May Marlene, for which she was nominated for numerous awards. She is the younger sister of actresses and fashion designers Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen.
Olsen began acting when she was four years of age and co-starred in six of Mary-Kate and Ashley’s productions; she also auditioned for the film Spy Kids. She almost quit acting in 2004 due to the media frenzy surrounding Mary-Kate’s eating disorder. Olsen attended New York University‘s Tisch School of the Arts and the Atlantic Theater Company and graduated in March 2013 after six years of intermittent study. Her sisters’ clothing line “Elizabeth and James” was named after her and her older brother.
I first saw Elizabeth Olsen in a thrilling movie called Martha Marcy May Marlene where she played a girl trying to escape from a cult. I thought she was very convincing in the role and she had a lot talent. It didn’t hurt that she is totally gorgeous and sexy. I had to figure out who she was which I was amazed that she was an Olsen sibling. I’ll be honest, I think she is the cutest Olsen and has the most talent out of the sisters. She has that old school Hollywood beauty but that new school sexiness. I thought she was great in the new Godzilla, even though it was a small role she still made an impact in the movie. You can check her out in Godzilla and the upcoming Avengers movie next year as the Scarlet Witch.
If you have no idea who she is then just watch this iPhone commercial.
That’s right she was that cute blonde singing a cover of Gigantic from the legendary band the Pixies.
Phoebe Bridgers is American-Indie Folk singer, who I believe totally made that iPhone commerical because of her cuteness and her beautiful voice. Every time that commercial comes on the television, I eagerly wait in anticipation for her part because she is so adorable. I think the people at Apple knew what they were doing because they brought my two loves together the Pixies and cute blondes.
After watching that commercial over and over again. I had to figure out who is that amazing girl, which was Phoebe. I found out shortly that not only is she beautiful, she is also a talented musician. She has an album out called Killers which you can listen to on her BandCamp page:
This is why Phoebe Bridgers is our Woman Crush Wednesday because she is smart, talented and beautiful. But don’t take our word for it, check out her songs and watch her great music video:

I don’t know about you, but in 2014 I want to be successful!
Whether it is in photography, music or writing. I just want to be highly successful. Of course, I want to be successful for the fame and money, but I also want to inspire people to become successful. As an Asian American, growing up in America, there weren’t many role models for me to look up to with the exception of my father and Bruce Lee. I am thankful that I had those two influences in my life because I would have been a lost soul. I want to find other people who can inspire people to achieve great things in their own lives.
BLW is introducing a section about people you may or may not know but they are well-known in their own fields and now they are starting to make noise for the whole world to hear. We decided to start this because we as a society are always looking for heroes or someone to look up to as a role model. Ynfortunately, we sometimes look for it in all the wrong places. So, we decided to dedicate an article about people, who you should inspire to be or are least gain some knowledge about how to be successful just like them. “Alone we fall, but together we stand.”
