Elizabeth Olsen Net Worth
Elizabeth Olsen has an estimated net worth of $11 Million. She is an American actress and the younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. She’s also known for her critically acclaimed role in ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’ and for playing the Scarlet Witch in the ‘Avengers’ franchise. She earned the majority of her income from movies.
Elizabeth Olsen, who was born in 1989 in Sherman Oaks, California, is the younger sister of actresses Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. She began her career as an actress in her sisters’ films as a child, and it wasn’t until she was in her twenties that she began to develop her own film career, appearing in films such as Silent House and Peace, Love & Misunderstanding (both in 2011). That same year, Olsen made a name for herself with her critically acclaimed performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene. She has since appeared in several more dramas, including Kill Your Darlings (2013), as well as the massive international blockbusters Godzilla (2014) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).
To calculate the net worth of Elizabeth Olsen, subtract all her liabilities from her total assets. Investments, savings, cash deposits, and any equity she has in a house, car, or other similar asset are included in the total assets. All debts, such as loans and personal debt, are included in total liabilities.
Here’s the breakdown of her net worth:
|Net Worth:||$11 Million|
|Monthly Salary:||$100 Thousand+|
|Annual Income:||$1 Million+|
|Source of Wealth:||Actress, Singer|
By the time she graduated from Tisch in 2011, Elizabeth Olsen had appeared in several films, the most notable of which were Silent House, Martha Marcy May Marlene, and Peace, Love & Misunderstanding, which gave her her first three major roles. Silent House and Martha Marcy May Marlene both had their world premieres at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, though only the latter was in competition.
‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’
Many critics regarded Olsen as the festival’s breakout star that year, particularly for her work in Martha Marcy May Marlene. Olsen says she fell in love with the project because “The audience adopts the viewpoint of my character, Martha. Through flashbacks, they will be able to see what is happening in the present and what is happening in the past. So what happened to her [in a cult] is gradually revealed, but what’s happening now is up to the audience to decide whether it’s real or paranoid.”
Silent House, a remake of a Uruguayan horror film, was shot in a single take and thus suited Olsen’s theater background perfectly. Olsen played the daughter of actress Jane Fonda’s character in the film Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding.
In 2012, Olsen appeared in two films: Red Lights (with Robert De Niro) and Liberal Arts (with Josh Radnor and Zac Efron). The following year, she co-starred in the drama Very Good Girls with Dakota Fanning and in Kill Your Darlings with Daniel Radcliffe. She also appeared as the Emile Zola character Thérèse Raquin in the period drama In Secret, as well as the grim thriller Old Boy.
“I’d been training in theater and dance since I was a kid, so being in front of a camera was really the most terrifying thing,” Olsen said of her early acting career, adding that she hopes to continue her on-screen work in the future. “I’m hoping to do stage and film work — I really enjoy it all.”
‘Godzilla’ and ‘Avengers’
Olsen has continued to make significant strides in her film career. She appeared in the international blockbuster remake Godzilla in 2014, and the following year in Avengers: Age of Ultron, which grossed more than $1.4 billion worldwide. Olsen portrayed Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch, a super-powered being with the ability to influence people’s perceptions of reality in Avengers: Age of Ultron. In an unexpected casting coup, British actor Aaron Taylor-Johson co-starred with Olsen in both Godzilla and Ultron, playing her husband in the former and her brother in the latter. Olsen reprised her role as the Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Infinity War in 2018.
Olsen portrayed Audrey Williams, the first wife of legendary singer-songwriter Hank Williams, in Marc Abraham’s biopic I Saw the Light, which premiered at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival. She co-starred with Tom Hiddleston as Hank Williams.
Early Life and Showbiz Background
Elizabeth Chase Olsen was born on February 16, 1989, in Sherman Oaks, California, the third daughter of mortgage banker David Olsen and manager Jarnie Olsen. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Olsen’s older twin sisters, are actresses/entrepreneurs who rose to prominence on the family sitcom Full House. Elizabeth, nicknamed “Lizzie,” started acting at a young age, appearing in her sisters’ films. She had small roles in How the West Was Fun, Our First Video, and the direct-to-video series The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley before the age of 11.
Olsen said of her acting career and relationship with her sisters during this time, “That was basically after-school for me. I’d hang out with them and they’d say, ‘Hey, you want to be in this one?’ They’d then paint half my face dark brown or something, as if to say, ‘Silly sister, forgot to put sunscreen on half her face.'”
From kindergarten to grade 12, Olsen attended Campbell Hall School in North Hollywood, California. She attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts after graduating from high school. She studied for a semester at the Moscow Art Theatre School in Russia in 2009. “I’ve been taking acting classes since I was seven years old,” the actress later revealed. “I took classes, and there were kids auditioning with their mothers, which I didn’t want; I just liked the classes. I met my agent while understudying in a Broadway play and doing some underground work that no one saw.”
