Elsewhere in the interview, Olsen said the close relationship between her siblings, Mary-Kate and Ashley, has always felt a bit off-limits to her.
However, the actor added that this difference may have served her well in the long run.
Oslen said of her twin siblings, “There’s something I’ll never experience in this connection, but I feel lucky to be a witness.”
Mary-Kate and Ashley, child stars who made their name by sharing the role of Michelle on a sitcom Full house, eventually left show business to pursue a career in fashion. But Olsen, 33, explains that she followed in her older sisters’ footsteps by pursuing acting.
“I’ve always felt this presence that made me work harder and maybe have a chip on my shoulder to be over prepared and disciplined in a way that made me feel like I deserved it,” he said WandaVision said Stern.
