• Elizabeth Olsen opens up about nepotism and living in her sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's shadow
  • She says she is "very aware" of how nepotism played a role in her own Hollywood success
  • The actress says she did not want to depend on her sisters' influence and instead tried to carve her own path

Elizabeth Olsen grew up with her famous sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, but she says she has always wanted to forge her own career.

During an interview with Grazia, Elizabeth, 32, opened up about nepotism in Hollywood and how it has played a role in her own success as an actress. Despite living in the shadow of her twin sisters, now 34, who entered showbiz before they even turned 1 through "Full House," the younger Olsen has been intent on striking out on her own.

"Nepotism is a thing and I'm very aware of it," Elizabeth told the magazine.

"And of course, I've always wanted to do it alone," she added.

After starring in numerous movies and earning tens of millions, Mary-Kate and Ashley launched their label The Row in 2006 and announced their retirement from acting in 2012 to focus on their fashion lines.

Elizabeth has managed to carve her own path by starring in "Avengers" and "WandaVision," in which she plays Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. the Scarlet Witch. But one thing she does want to copy from her sisters is their style.

"Everything my sisters have ever worn in my entire life I have wanted to wear still as an adult today. I want their coats. I want their shoes. I want their dresses," she said during an appearance on SiriusXM's "The Jess Cagle Show" in January. "And that is something that I never grew out of."

As for her latest project, Elizabeth earlier spoke with E! News about Marvel Studios' "WandaVision," which premiered on DisneyPlus on Jan. 15 and follows Wanda Maximoff and Vision (Paul Bettany) as they masquerade as a regular suburban couple.

"I think we get to see them try and be your average married couple, desperately," the actress said.

"And we get to see them become parents," she added. "We get to see lots of colors of their relationship from love and responsibility and respect and maybe some secrets and maybe some things that wrap up... maybe we get to witness their first disagreement and things like that. So it's, you know, it's a fully fleshed out relationship which is different than what we saw on the Marvel films."

Elizabeth also portrayed the superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (2015), "Captain America: Civil War" (2016), "Avengers: Infinity War" (2018) and "Avengers: Endgame" (2019). She will reprise her character in the upcoming movie "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," which is set to premiere in March 2022.

The ninth and final episode of "WandaVision" is scheduled to be released on March 5 on DisneyPlus.
