Fame isn’t always so sweet for Eric

One of the toughest parts of being famous is dealing with criticism from the public. One example was when Olsen posted a photo on Instagram announcing a new project he was working on with CBS. Shortly after his post, a fan jumped in and made a rude comment about the actor’s hair. The fan decided to share her thoughts on his hair by writing, “His hair is horrible in CSI LA.”  The actor didn’t let the comment go unnoticed. Although he clapped back, he was nice enough not to mention the commenter got the name of the show wrong. Olsen responded by saying, “That’s also my hair in real life. Soooooooo, good talk,” said Olsen.
