Elizabeth Olsen has never been more relatable after revealing she too spent her youth copying the styles of her famous sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Olsen, who is the younger sister of The Row designers and former acting duo, recently opened up about her love of the twins' style during an interview with SiriusXM's The Jess Cagle Show.

On growing up with the famous pair, she noted: 'For me at least, I always looked up to my older sister and whatever she was listening to I had to listen to, whatever she was doing I had to do etc.'

'Everything my sisters have ever worn in my entire life I have wanted to wear still as an adult today,' the 31-year-old added when quizzed about her older siblings famous style.

'I want their coats. I want their shoes. I want their dresses. And that is something that I never grew out of.'

The WandaVision star explained that when it came to finding her own style, she'd rifle through thrift shops to try and find similar clothes to her sisters'.

'I myself was just going through every secondhand store and wearing all of the things,' she said. 'Except mine became more like Annie Hall-y, but it was all just like a lot of clothes that I didn’t even wash them after I got them. I just wore them.'

The actresses are also siblings to Taylor, Trent and Jake Olsen.

With roles in film franchises like the Avengers and indie thrillers like Martha Marcy May Marlene, the actress has taken a rather different path in Hollywood than her famous sisters, who forged a well-respected name for themselves in the fashion industry in the early Noughties.

'My sisters didn’t love being on like live theatre. They didn’t love live audiences. They were pretty shy and it made them nervous,' she said of the differences between the sisters' acting passions.

'I was the one that made everyone come to see me perform a musical that we made within two weeks and they had to see three of them every summer. They had to go to every dance performance and so it was always unique to me that I loved theatre and dancing and singing. And so it never felt like a following for me because it always felt like it was my path.”

What we'd have given to have grown up in the same household as the Olsen sisters, let along their wardrobes!
