Elizabeth Olsen in Glamour

No doubt Elizabeth Olsen‘s last name will conjure up images of her famous twin sisters, but in a feature for Glamour‘s September issue, she makes it perfectly clear she knows how to stand on her own two feet.

“My last name has always been my motivator to get proper acting training and be taken seriously. I didn’t get to where I am because of who I’m related to,” she said.

Indeed, the 23-year-old actress has already received high praise for her role in “Martha Marcy May Marlene” and will be appearing in “Liberal Arts,” out in limited release Sept. 14.

Though she admits, “Yesterday three people told me that I look like Elizabeth Olsen. That’s never happened before. So awkward.” It looks like Olsen will have to learn to adapt to being the one who’s recognized from now on.
