Ever since Elizabeth “Lizzie” Olsen burst onto the scene in 2011’s Martha Marcy May Marlene, one could potentially make the case that she’s become more successful than her older sisters—a set of twins you may have heard of—Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I don’t think they would win that argument, though.

I mean, sure, Elizabeth, age 23, is one of the “rising starlets” that Hollywood likes to sporadically trot out, but that certainly doesn’t mean she’s come to rival her sisters in levels of fame and notoriety. The Olsen twins, age 25, have literally spent every single second of their lives as household names—if you’re picky, you can exclude the first couple months before they started on Full House. Elizabeth’s one great role—she has a multitude of films in the can for 2012—and whichever ones come next won’t ever stand against the massive fortune and level of fame that her older sisters accumulated first through their direct-to-VHS movies and later, through their burgeoning global fashion empire.

That being said, no one can deny that Elizabeth has certainly trumped her older, better-known siblings as far as acting is concerned. Though I may find Holiday in The Sun to be wonderful and the epitome of five-star acting, methinks that Elizabeth’s critically-adored portrayal of a “a damaged woman struggles to re-assimilate with her family after fleeing an abusive cult” blows Billboard Dad out of the water.

Apparently, while Mary-Kate and Ashley have been slowly cultivating themselves quite the reputation in fashion—their high-end clothing lines, The Row and Elizabeth & James are both fiscally and critically successful—their younger sister has been quietly cultivating herself quite the reputation in acting. While her older sisters spent their college-years bouncing around NYU and never seemingly in class, their younger sister is a graduate of the Tisch School of the Arts in New York.

Though Elizabeth seems to have trumped her sisters in the acting department, her sisters have quite the hold in the fashion world. Their company, Dualstar—for which they are sole owners and head designers—puts out three clothing lines. Of which there is the aforementioned The Row (high end), Elizabeth & James (mid-market contemporary) and Olsenboye (their juniors line). And, according to a recent article in Us Weekly, those lines will soon turn a $1 billion profit. No small feat for Michelle Tanner (Tanners?). Additionally, they were named to Forbes list of “30 Under 30: Art & Design.”

I’m thinking their hundreds of millions of dollars will keep them nice and warm should their younger sister ever get that Oscar she was rumored to be up for all winter—though she wasn’t nominated in the end. And, as a plus, she always has a guaranteed clothing supplier for red carpet events. Which certainly can’t hurt either cause.

On deck, though, for Elizabeth are movies with Jane Fonda, Josh Radnor, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Glenn Close, Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter—so I think she’ll do just fine. Between the three of them, I think the Olsen girls have sectioned off a nice little section of pop-culture for themselves. All we need is a male Olsen in the NBA and we’re ready to cultivate another Jackson 5.
