Olivia Holt Talks Choker Obsessions, Reese Witherspoon Inspiration and Insta-Stalking Chrissy Teigen

Posted on

Olivia Holt, who made it big starring on Disney’s I Didn’t Do It and Kickin’ It and now has 4.8 million Instagram followers and a beauty contract with Neutrogena, is entering a new phase in her career: Singing. She’s always been obsessed with belting out tunes, and this summer, she dropped her first five-song EP featuring the single, “Phoenix.” So when she stopped by PeopleStyle’s New York offices in New York City recently, we had to find out all things Olivia for our “5 Questions Everyone Wants to Ask” series.

And what did we learn?

We’ll give you three hints. First, she’s obsessed with chokers. “I have 10 now of them,” says the 18-year-old. “I went to five different stores in a row and bought all these chokers.”

Second, her acting crush is Reese Witherspoon. “I’ve been a fan of her forever,” she says. “I just want her to be my mom in a movie, or like my cool aunt. One of the two. I’m okay with either/or. I don’t even care if she’s my mom or my cool aunt. I’ll be an extra!”

And, third, she’s currently Insta-stalking Chrissy Teigen. “She’s funny,” says Holt.” She definitely helps when it comes to the food category. I look at her Instagram and I’m like, I’m going to have that.”

Next, Holt is gearing up to go on tour this summer (see all her stops here). “This is something I’ve dreamed of since I was a little kid,” she says, “so I’m just super excited.”
