The Olsen twins are at the top of the list when it comes to celebrities who keep their personal lives private. They’ve stepped away from the big screens, and their sister Elizabeth Olsen has taken their places.
In a new Harper’s Bazaar interview with Elizabeth Olsen, she opens up about her relationship with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
“It’s an amazing feeling, being the younger sibling to twins,” Elizabeth said, adding, “If I was spoiled by one, the other one wanted to match it. I loved it.”
Elizabeth also spoke about feeling “protected” by her sisters, who grew up famous and knew the ins and outs of living in the spotlight.
“I always felt that having older twin sisters was an advantage,” she continued, “I felt very clear about how I was going to navigate lots of things because of watching them. I also felt very protected.”
Elizabeth noted that she’s always felt the presence of her sisters’ success, and it made her “work harder, and maybe have a chip on my shoulder to be over-prepared and disciplined, so I could feel like I was earning it.”
“That feeling definitely settled five years into working, but I had this need to be the hardest-working student when I was in school,” she expressed.
As for Mary-Kate and Ashley’s style, Elizabeth says they always inspire her. “Everything my sisters have ever worn in my entire life, I have wanted to wear. Still, as an adult today, I want their coats, I want their shoes, I want their dresses. That is something that I never grew out of.”
