Elizabeth Olsen exclusive on  “Wind River” training and some of her favorite skin care products

For her role as FBI agent Jane Banner in the movie Wind River, actress Elizabeth Olsen said she had to go through intensive training in a very short time. “I started doing physical training and it is weird being a theater kid and now I have to look like a federal agent and look like I know what I am doing with weapons,” says the actress. “I also had to look like I had gone through years of training with a lot of men. How do you shorten that very quickly? So the physical really helped me – training in Muay Thai, doing gun training for three months, and going to the gun range every weekend.”  NEW YOU caught up with Olsen at the premier of the Wind River at Sundance to ask her why she chose to do this movie. “The script is incredible,” she said. “You don’t get to read these scripts where women get these types of opportunities that are challenging.” On health Olsen says she drinks at least three gallons of water every day. Also her favorite skin care lines are 1-11 Skin and Kate Somerville. “I am obsessed!” she says.
