The 21-year-old actress has two films premiering at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival this week — Martha Marcy May Marlene and Silent House.
Elizabeth stopped to chat with MTV about avoiding the pre-teen spotlight. “I think thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s why I waited such a long time until I was comfortable as a person to start working professionally. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been what I wanted to do since I was seven or eight but I never wanted to be a child actor. I never wanted to be a brand. I want to be an actor. I feel good in my own skin. I just want to make movies and do theater,” she shared.
