With her highly-anticipated MCU film Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness already out in cinemas worldwide, it’s safe to say that Elizabeth Olsen is one of the most successful female artists in the industry right now.
Her rise to fame wasn’t all magical, though. It took her years of working and fighting against nepotism to finally be part of the mainstream.
Indeed, all of Lizzie’s hard work paid off. She’s got her own critically-acclaimed Netflix show playing MCU’s very own Scarlet Witch, and her fanbase is only getting bigger.
With that said, many are now rushing to know more about Elizabeth Olsen – and if you’re one of them, we’ve got your back.
What is Elizabeth Olsen’s Age?
What many may not know is that Lizzie is actually one of the younger stars in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, she just turned 33 years old last February 16 of this year.
She was 26 years old when she first made her appearance as Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
If you’re curious to know how old Lizzie is compared to other MCU celebrities, take a look at the list below:
- Robert Downey Jr. – 57
- Chris Evans – 40
- Mark Ruffalo – 54
- Chris Hemsworth – 38
- Scarlet Johanson – 37
- Jeremy Renner – 51
- Tom Hiddleston – 41
- Paul Bettany – 51
- Tom Holland – 25
- Brie Larson – 32
It’s interesting how three of the ‘strongest’ MCU superheroes are played by actors who are around the same age. Perhaps 30 is the magic number!
What is Elizabeth Olsen’s Height?
Sources vary in terms of the exact number of Elizabeth Olsen’s height, but most of them claim that the actress is somewhere around 5ft4 or 1.68m.
This was – somehow – confirmed by Lizzie herself during a WIRED Autocomplete Interview where she answered the question: how tall is Elizabeth Olsen in the foot?
“I know what they’re trying to say. I am five feet, and I don’t really know how many inches. Some people say five, and some people say six, but I think six is generous.”
Who are Elizabeth Olsen’s Siblings?
Does the name ‘Olsen’ ring any bell? If it does, you’re probably trying to think of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen: the famed twins of the 90s. Yes, Lizzie is the younger sister of the twins – but did you know that they have other siblings as well? And yes, they’re all working in the entertainment industry.
Here are the Olsen siblings in order of birth:
- Trent Olsen – 38 years old
- Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen – 35 years old
- Elizabeth Olsen – 33 years old
- Courtney Taylor Olsen – 26 years old
- Jake Olsen – 24 years old
Courtney and Jake are both Lizzie’s half-siblings due to the fact that they do not share the same biological mother. Trent, Lizzie, and the twins, however, came from the same parents.
Who are Elizabeth Olsen’s Parents?
Lizzie was born to American parents Jarnette and David Olsen, who were both very successful in their own professions. Her mom was a ballet dancer and an actress while her dad was a real estate developer and mortgage banker.
Unfortunately, the Olsen twins’ unexpected fame severely affected their parents’ marriage. They ultimately filed for divorce in 1995. Some reports claim that David was having an affair with his secretary and that is what caused the divorce.
While that remains mere speculation, one thing is for sure: Mr. Olsen had 100% control over the Olsen twins’ career as Jarnette decided to stop being involved in it.
Now, David is happily married to his second wife, McKenzie Olsen, while Jarnette has chosen to drop out of the limelight for good.
