This Is The Richest Member Of The Olsen Family

Though actress Elizabeth Olsen has been appearing in films large and small for nearly a decade, her latest role in the Disney+ production "WandaVision" has a whole host of critics paying tribute to her acting prowess. Since 2014, she has been appearing as the Marvel Comics character Wanda Maximoff in various MCU movies and, more recently, in "WandaVision." She received high praise for her performance in the television series, which is currently being streamed on Disney+ (per BBC).

Given her fairly recent rise to mainstream notoriety, many only just recently realized that Elizabeth is the younger sister of perhaps the most iconic twins in show business — Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Since their debut on "Full House," the twin sister duo has crafted an entire empire of wealth and quiet success. Apart from wanting to steal their clothing, Elizabeth said during an episode of SiriuxXM's "The Jess Cagle Show" that she was very different from her sisters. "My sisters didn't love being on like live theatre," Elizabeth shared, according to Fox News. "They didn't love live audiences. They were pretty shy and it made them nervous. I was the one that made everyone come to see me perform a musical that we made within two weeks and they had to see three of them every summer."

However, despite her own recent successes, Elizabeth Olsen's net worth looks like pocket change compared to the massive fortune amassed by her twin sisters.

The Olsen twins are incredibly wealthy

Presently, the Olsen twins are collectively worth $500 million, with each twin owning up to half of the net worth. This impressive sum comes from a variety of endeavors, including profitable acting careers, fashion brands, and real estate ventures (per Cosmopolitan). At just six months old (yes, you read that right), the Olsen twins took on the role of Michelle Tanner in "Full House." While the pair, who played the character in shifts to abide by child labor laws, only made $2,400 per episode in the beginning, that number soon jumped to $80,000 per episode in later seasons of the show (via The Washington Post).

Then, after starring in a number of films (remember the cinematic masterpiece "It Takes Two?"), the twins began building their fashion empire, which now includes luxury fashion brands The Row, which generates between $100 million and $200 million a year in sales according to Business of Fashion, and Elizabeth and James, which rakes in an estimated $89 million per year according to Cosmopolitan.

Mary-Kate Olsen, along with her ex-husband Olivier Sarkozy, also dabbled in real estate. Throughout the course of their relationship, the pair purchased and flipped several New York townhouses, often selling them for millions more than what they originally paid.

What's more, the Olsens are fairly private when it comes to their income, so their actual net worth could be much higher than an already-generous $500 million.

How much is Elizabeth Olsen worth?

As previously hinted, Elizabeth Olsen, the actor and younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, has amassed an impressive fortune, despite the fact that it pales in comparison to her sisters' empire. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the "WandaVision" actress is worth approximately $11 million. One might assume that much of this fortune comes from Elizabeth's part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Wanda Maximoff and in roles in other films like "Godzilla," "Marcy May Marlene," "Ingrid Goes West," and Facebook Watch's "Sorry For Your Loss." While it is unknown how much Elizabeth has made on each project, the salaries of other actors from the Marvel Cinematic Universe may provide a glimpse into how the actress has amassed her fortune. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, and Chris Hemsworth all made between $15 and $20 million for their work on 2019's "Avengers: Endgame," which Elizabeth also starred in. While her part was relatively smaller than that of her more famous co-stars, it's not out of the realm of possibility that the actress made at least a few million on the film.

Other members of the Olsen family have dipped their toes in the world of celebrity. According to The Richest, Courtney Taylor Olsen, the 25-year-old half-sister to Elizabeth, Mary-Kate, and Ashley, has worked on smaller films like "Malignant Spirits: Sense of Fiction" and "YOLO: The Movie." Trent Olsen, the siblings' 37-year-old brother, did some acting as a child and has more recently worked as a comic book writer, according to Bustle.
