Elizabeth Olsen - Elizabeth Olsen Was Kindergarten Star

Elizabeth Olsen started making movies in kindergarten.

The 22-year-old actress - who is the younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen - and her friends had a lot of experience seeing their families work in the film industry when they were young, so were not afraid to experiment with their own productions.

She said: "I grew up in LA with a really creative group of kids and everyone's family did something in the industry so we started making movies in kindergarten, the first thing I did was 'Wizard of Oz' in kindergarten, which my friend Clay and I spearheaded."

Despite their ambitious plans, Elizabeth and her pal soon hit problems when they realised not all of their peers were as advanced in their abilities.

Speaking on 'Live with Kelly', Elizabeth added: " We knew how to read at that age so we made these big cue cards for everyone to read and Clay was so mad people couldn't read his cue cards, he was like, 'How dare they, they're ruining my film.'

"I grew up so much on the 'Full House' set, I would be with my sisters' teachers so I learned to read early."
