How Eric Christian Olsen’s mother knew he would be famous

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Olsen’s mother says she knew her son would be famous after she saw him perform in a school musical. She says his confidence and stage presence left a big impression on her:

The most amazing moment was when he was in fourth grade and he was in a musical. I didn’t know he could sing. And he comes out on the stage, and I’m so nervous. And he turns around and faces the audience and he puts his arms out and he starts to sing.

And I literally stood there with my mouth open because of his presence… He was just a natural. That’s when I knew there was something special about this kid.

How Chris O’Donnell’s mother knew he would be famous

O’Donnell’s mother told Entertainment Tonight he used to change clothes multiple times a day, as if he was doing a wardrobe change for a TV show. It was almost as if he knew he was destined to become an actor.

“When he was 3 and 4 years old, he would change his clothes three times a day, so I figured he’s going to get into something,” says O’Donnell’s mother. “And I would just fold [the clothes], put them back in the drawer, and then he would get another set out.”
