Some People Have Just Discovered Elizabeth Olsen Is The Olsen Twins' Sister
A number of people on the internet have been shocked to discover that Elizabeth Olsen, one of the stars of Marvel's Avengers movies and hit TV series WandaVision, is related to Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.
Remember Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen? They starred in loads of shows when they were kids, including Two of a Kind and Full House.
They're 34 years old now, but some people hadn't made the connection that they had a sister, who's just two years younger and also an actor.
In fact, there are six Olsen siblings, because Elizabeth, Mary Kate, and Ashley have another brother and two younger half-siblings.
Anyway, with the younger celebrity Olsen getting the plaudits just now for her role in the hit Marvel show - which was just declared the most popular TV show in the world right now - some people are catching up with Elizabeth's own origin story.
One person even tweeted about it - apologies in advance for the capitals - saying: "I'M SORRY WHY DID NO ONE F***ING TELL ME THAT #ELIZABETHOLSEN AKA WANDA MAXIMOFF HERSELF IS THE YOUNGER SISTER OF MARY KATE AND ASHLEY!!!
"I FEEL LIKE THIS SHOULD BE MORE WIDELY KNOWN!!!"
Fair play, although I think most people did actually know this.
Another shared a picture of Olsen's Wikipedia page, writing: "Just realised that Mary Kate and Ashley are Elizabeth Olsen's sisters."
A third said: "OMFG why did no one tell me that Elizabeth Olsen who plays Scarlet Witch is the sister of the Olsen twins from Full House?"

Elizabeth Olsen: looks exactly like Marykate and Ashley.
Elizabeth Olsen: is their sister.
Unsurprisingly, the Internet was quick to pour scorn on those who didn't know, with one user posting: "You're telling me people didn't know that Elizabeth OLSEN is the sister of the OLSEN twins?!?!?"
Another incredulous person asked: "Who didn't know this?
Some simply seemed concerned, however, as one person posted: "The fact that GenZ know who Elizabeth Olsen is but may not know about the Olsen twins keeps me up at night."
Believe it or not, this isn't even the most wrong that some people have been about this.
Some people had been labouring under the belief that Elizabeth Olsen actually was one of the Olsen twins.
One such person said: "I see your 'Twitter is surprised to learn Elizabeth Olsen is related to the Olsen twins' and I raise you 'I'm just sitting here shocked to learn she ISN'T one of the twins but ANOTHER SISTER'."
everyone talking about how they didn't know elizabeth olsen was related to mary kate and ashley... when i thought she was one of the twins who acted in the marvel movies this whole time :sob::sob::sob:- mo is a dilf (@agustIeaves) February 23, 2021
Well, she's not one of them, but she is related to them, When you consider it, Olsen is a fairly common name, and there could be loads of actors called Olsen out there.
However, there's nothing that brings some parts of the internet together like knowing a thing that someone else doesn't know.
