Imagine having not one, but two very famous siblings? Well, take a walk in Elizabeth Olsen’s shoes — the actress spent many years in the shadows of her big sisters, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen before her breakout role in Martha Marcy May Marlene in 2011.
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, a caller asked the 25-year-old to pick which sister she liked best. “Now this is a good question,” host Andy Cohen said. “There has to be one that is more in your favor today.”
After hesitating for a moment, Elizabeth responded. “Ashley remembered my birthday,” she revealed, but quickly added, “But I don’t hold a grudge against Mary Kate for forgetting mine. She was out of town!”
“We’re all very close,” the Godzilla star explained. “I’m very close with my brother [Trent], as well. I should’ve just said him. That would’ve been the easier scapegoat.”
Of course, Andy couldn’t let the birthday girl off the hook without clarifying. “You are, though, to clarify, feeling closer to Ashley today,” he coaxed. Elizabeth, nervously laughing, replied, “Mary Kate is literally going to come home from her vacation and shoot me that I said that!”
