Elizabeth Olsen Almost Quit Acting Because Of Her Sisters

| Filed under: Film FlickersFamilyCeleb KidzWomb For Two

We're guessing that for Elizabeth Olsen, living with her infamous sisters, the Olsen Twins, felt like a bit of a Full House.

Ha!

The up-and-coming actor got serious though as she described how she decided to quit acting at the age of ten because of her sisters, and how the world was this close to missing out on The Other Talented Olsen Sister.

Here's what she said:

“I did! My parents made me write down a pros and cons list. And the cons just piled up. So I figured I’d keep acting as a hobby until I was older. Because I felt that pressure, and that people would say, ‘Oh, that’s nepotism.’ I decided that as long as I felt confident and worked hard for it, instead of having it handed to me, no one could take that away from me. I don’t have any insecurity about it. I never got any job because of my sisters. I could have pulled a few strings through them, but I never needed to.”

We're just glad that you decided to make your hobby a career because you're so talented, and we can't wait to see your next batch of movies.

She's a living testament that anyone is capable of achieving their dreams if they put their minds to it! Even if your sisters are collectively Michelle Tanner!
