“During that time, I myself was just going through every secondhand store and wearing all of, all of the things, except mine, became more like Annie Hall-y,” Olsen said. “It was all just, like, a lot of clothes that I didn’t even wash them after I got them. I just wore them, and now I’m just like mortified of, you know, where were those clothes? Most of them are like thrown into trash bags and thrown into bins, and I would just not wash them.”

Although she enjoys watching her sisters work in the fashion industry, Olsen focuses on acting. In January 2021 released WandaVision. The nine-episode series follows Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch, who Olsen made famous with Marvel’s Avenger movies. 

“When Kevin [Feige] proposed this show, I was completely freaked out by it because I know how many eyes are on these shows or films, and it’s very intimidating,” she explained on the podcast Still Watching. “It just became something I absolutely adored and loved. Because of the show, it made me love this character more than I ever had. It makes me feel like I have new ownership of her because of the time I got to spend creating this show.”

As for Mary-Kate and Ashley, the pair left acting for good to focus on their line, The Row. However, it faced financial difficulties in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, per WWD.
