Elizabeth Olsen: I'm so mature

Elizabeth Olsen has always appeared older than her years.

The younger sister of famous twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen revealed people are often surprised by her age. She believes having the hugely successful business women as her relatives has shaped her outlook on life and meant she has grown up faster herself.

"Everyone is always surprised by how old I am, they think I'm older, but it's always been that way," Elizabeth revealed to British Vogue. "I'm the youngest of four - maybe you grow up quicker because you just watch the big people."

Elizabeth has an upbeat and driven personality. She believes this contributes to people's perception of her being mature. Elizabeth insists she doesn't obsess over growing older.

"A few years ago I really wanted to rush growing up. [I'm] passionate and positive - I think that's how most of my friends would describe me," Elizabeth continued.

"I don't think that age has to be a problem. Some people are ready to commit at different stages. Some people are young at heart and some people are old souls. It is totally case-dependent."

The 23-year-old actress has been successful with her equally haunting films Silent House and Martha Marcy May Marlene. Her latest project is an upbeat indie movie, Liberal Arts, and she has further aspirations to develop her acting skills in other kinds of movies.

"I'd love to work with Kate Winslet - she's amazing," she said. "Or Cate Blanchett because she's had an incredible career. I want to do a combination if things. Maybe I'll try something more mainstream, perhaps even something funny."
