She Was a Gymnast

Before becoming an actress, Olivia was a devoted gymnast. She described herself to StyleCaster as a "full-on Southern belle." While living in a small town in Mississippi she dreamt of becoming an Olympic gymnast, spending 5 hours a night training at a gym.  


She Struggles with Body Image Issues

Like many other girls, Olivia has dealt with overcoming body image issues. "I've struggled with figuring out exactly what my body type is and going back and forth between feeling too skinny or too thick or too this or too that," she told StyleCaster. "Being a gymnast, I had a lot of issues with feeling too broad in my shoulders or too thick in my thighs. It's heartbreaking that we have to feel this way, especially as women in a world where we already feel put down by so many others. I've been told by many producers, 'You need to lose X amount of pounds if you're going to be a part of this project' or 'You need to gain this amount of pounds if you want to be a part of this project.' That really messes, not just your headspace, but your heart."


She Is Competitive

Olivia was psyched when Disney asked if she wanted to participate in the challenge show TEYathalon. "I love to be challenged, and I am very competitive, sports-wise," she told Girls Life. "The best element from the TRYathlon is doing something I have never done before and challenging muscles that I don't normally use." 


Her Favorite Workout Is Parkour

Olivia told Girls Life that she loves swimming, hiking, and tumbling with her friends. But her favorite workout? Parkour. "I love it," she said. "It teaches you how to do all sorts of stunts, and it challenges me."


She Has a Few Favorite Eats


Olivia revealed her guilty pleasure to She Knows. "Popcorn. I like Smart Food White Cheddar Popcorn, but I do just like plain movie theater popcorn too. [On set] I got everyone hooked on popcorn dipped in Nutella. It's soooo good. But it is very messy," she said. She also revealed that she has a favorite condiment. "I eat everything with ketchup. I smother everything with ketchup. I cannot eat a meal without ketchup. I carry ketchup in my purse."
