Yes — we always knew it! While promoting her new movie Ingrid Goes West on the red carpet, Elizabeth Olsen revealed that her famous twin sisters Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen offer her acting advice.
“I think they’ve given me a lot of little advice along the way,” Elizabeth tells Us Weekly. The 28-year-old star even revealed that her sisters have recommended “people to work with.”

Elizabeth put her acting career on hold when she was just 10 years old so that she could go to after-school activities and have a “normal life.” She made a career comeback in 2011 and has since starred in movies like Avengers, Godzilla, Captain America, and the critically-acclaimed Martha Marcy May Marlene.
One thing they don’t do? Elizabeth makes it clear that she doesn’t prep for roles with her sisters. “They live in New York. I don’t even run lines with my roommates!” she says. “I think that’s like an idea the world has of [me and my sisters] or something. But no, I’m not standing around running lines with my sisters.”
While she holds her sisters’ insight and words of advice in high regards, Elizabeth maintains that she doesn’t care about other peoples’ opinions of her. That trait — she says — come with the territory of being in the public eye.
“I don’t really hold strangers’ opinions that high in my book anyway, just because of my job and I’ve had to create a healthy relationship with haters and rejection, so I only care about peoples’ opinions if they’re close to me,” she says. “I obviously do pay attention to critics and I pay attention to people who are talking about the work I’m in. If someone has something nasty to say about me, like that’s cool but we’ve never met. So if you don’t like me, that’s fine. We might never get along in some world if we had met.”
