Elizabeth Olsen may be Mary-Kate and Ashley‘s younger sister, but these days, she’s definitely standing out all on her own. Today, Olsen celebrates her 25th birthday. From her short-lived cameo appearance in her sisters’ 1994 film How the West Was Fun, to her breakout role in 2011′s Martha Marcy May Marlene, which earned Olsen a Critics’ Choice Award nomination, she has become one of Hollywood’s biggest rising stars.
Since then, Olsen has busied herself with a handful of films—including Silent House, Liberal Arts with Josh Radnor, last year’s Kill Your Darlings, Oldboy, and this month’s In Secret—and she’s already gearing up for her first major blockbuster film, Avengers: Age of Ultron. She will star as Scarlet Witch opposite of Hollywood heavy hitters Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and Chris Hemsworth. Not a bad way to kick off the new year!
