LA TIMES – Room 64 at the Chateau Marmont is possibly the most Instagrammable spot in L.A. Its wrap-around terrace is suspended just below the homes built into the Hollywood Hills, tiny glass boxes that form their own constellation when night falls. Rumor has it Howard Hughes once lived in this two-bedroom penthouse, spying on girls at the pool below, decades before Lindsay Lohan and Lady Gaga crashed here for a slumber party.
Today, however, it is home to the actress Elizabeth Olsen, who has arrived at the hotel with a team of people to help beautify her. High-heeled sandals are lined up on a desk. There are multiple pieces of luggage containing makeup kits. She is wearing borrowed diamonds on her fingers, paging through the room service menu, from which she can order whatever she would like.
It’s a scene, no doubt, that would incite lust among her half-a-million Instagram followers. But she doesn’t feel like she knows how to do the setting justice. Just this morning, she attempted to photograph her breakfast, but then ended up deleting the image in haste.
“I’m bad at it,” she says. “I’m bad at the lighting. I’m bad at the framing. I’m bad at the editing. When I look at my food, it looks pretty. When I look at it on a phone, it looks not pretty.”
Last night, Elizabeth attended the premiere of “Ingrid Goes West” with her cast mate Aubrey Plaza. The pair dressed alike to represent the relationship they have in the movie, with Ingrid mimicking everything Taylor did.
ROLLING STONE – Social media stalking turns into full-blown stalking in the comedy Ingrid Goes West. The film stars Aubrey Plaza as Ingrid Thorburn, an oddball who becomes obsessed with Elizabeth Olsen’s character Taylor Sloane.

In the new trailer, Thorburn closely follows Instagram influencer Sloane’s Instagram posts. Thorburn soon begins to shape her own life around the hashtag-slinging, selfie-loving Sloane, to the point that Thorburn moves to California to be closer to Sloane.
Thorburn goes so far as to kidnap Sloane’s dog as a means to befriend her (it works), dyes her hair blonde like Sloane’s and even adopts her laugh. Her wacky ploy seems to be working as the two become friends, until Sloane’s brother (portrayed by Billy Magnussen) catches on to Thorburn’s ruse.
While the plot seems pretty creepy on paper, in the clip Plaza and Olsen’s hilarious and punchy deliveries keep things primarily light and even strangely endearing. “I’m not a psychopath,” Thorburn insists. “I just want to be her friend.”
Directed by Matt Spicer, who co-wrote Ingrid Goes West with David Branson Smith, the film won the 2017 Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at Sundance Film Festival. Ingrid Goes West opens in theaters on August 11th.
