Sundance: Introducing the other Olsen

Who knew Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen had a younger sister who is an actress? 21-year old beauty Elizabeth Olsen looks so much like her famous siblings, she could be their triplet!

Elizabeth is being called the breakout star of the Sundance Film Festival. The NYU senior has two films here, the horror movie "Silent House", and the drama "Martha Marcy May Marlene".

Elizabeth, who goes by the nickname Lizzie, stopped by our CNN Sundance studio and revealed how her sisters support her, and why she avoided film and fame as a child...

– Advice she's received from Mary-Kate and Ashley: Keep your feet firmly on the ground, head on your shoulders, do what makes you happy and that's the work, nothing else.
- Elizabeth didn't go right into making films because the media frightened her. She told me, "Fame is an odd thing" and first gravitated towards theater because of her concerns.
–Actresses she admires and loves: Michelle Pfeiffer, Annette Bening, Diane Keaton.
- Elizabeth wore "The Row" apparel to our interview. It's one of the labels designed by her sisters.
To watch more of my interview with Elizabeth Olsen, tune into HLN's Showbiz Tonight on Monday, 11p Eastern and Pacific.

    Met Lizzie 11 years ago on a "Mary Kate and Ashley Cruise to Alaska" with my kids. All 3 were VERY nice, sweet girls. I took a picture of Lizzie and told her she reminded me of a young Michelle Pfeiffer. Glad that's now one of her fave actresses! Break a leg, Lizzie!

    She doesn't look like her sisters that much. She actually looks healthy and real.

    Triplet? I don't think she looks anything like her sisters. Mary Kate and Ashley look like troll dolls. This one is actually pretty cute.
