“No, I just told her she gets to pick a date first!” Elizabeth, 25, told Marie Claire U.K. in their June issue, on newsstands now.
The Godzilla star, who is set to tie the knot with actor Boyd Holbrook, said she’s feeling “relaxed” about the nuptials, calling wedding planning “just like throwing a party to celebrate life.”
As for raising a family while famous, Olsen said she looks to the twins, who became household names as toddlers on Full House and spent their teen years building an empire before retreating from the spotlight to pursue fashion careers.
“Because my sisters were so grounded, it helped me be grounded. They never got caught up in things,” she said. “I did live a charmed life. We got to go on vacations and lived in nice homes, and I got to play club volleyball and ballet, which you don’t realize as a kid are expensive. My mom would say things like, ‘Lizzie, we are not Rockefellers!’ That put things into perspective.”
Whenever she and Holbrook have children, Olsen intends on staying behind the camera as a working mom.
“There was a time when you’d have a career, get to the top and then have children, which I always thought was weird,” she said. “As opposed to having kids, witnessing the ebbs and flows, starting somewhere and growing together as a family.”
