Elizabeth Olsen has been on the rise since she made her debut with the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and her feature on one of the biggest TV shows around, WandaVision, makes her an even huge star. The spin-off Disney+ show has been bending minds for almost two months. Be that as it may, a number of people on the internet are discovering only now that Elizabeth is related to a few famous sisters. She is the younger sibling of Full House alumni Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who we know from, well, pretty much our entire childhood, given a certain age. They are now 34-years-old. Now, that’s brand new information!
Elizabeth is two years younger to the twin sisters. The Olsens are six siblings including a brother and two younger half-siblings. Peopleon Twitter and other social networking sites have been expressing their surprise that Elizabeth is indeed related to the twin sisters, who starred in a couple of films in the ’90s and early 2000s.
That being said, people are figuring out the truth in real time but it’s not like this wasn’t common knowledge. While some people find their jaw dropping learning this factoid, another set of people are finding it hard to believe that they already didn’t know the Olsens were related. Using photos, some users of the micro-blogging site mined pictures to prove that the three siblings look a lot alike. Netizens didn’t take long to pour scorn on those who didn’t know the truth with one person remarking, “You’re telling me people didn’t know that Elizabeth OLSEN is the sister of the OLSEN twins?!?!?”

In a new interview with Grazia, Elizabeth had spoken about being related to the sisters. She told the magazine, “Nepotism is a thing and I’m very aware of it. And of course, I’ve always wanted to do it alone.”
Elizabeth was granted her big break by her elder sisters. She briefly appeared in her first role in their 1994 TV movie How the West Was Fun. At the age of six, she featured in a 1995 episode of Full House. Mary-Kate and Ashley sang an entire song in 1994’s The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley: The Case of Thorn Mansion titled B-U-T-T Out. It saw them telling their sister, Lizzie, to ‘go away.’
