Elizabeth Olsen may not be as famous as her older sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, but she's working her way up the entertainment ladder. The 21-year-old actress is lighting up the 2011 Sundance Film Festival with performances in Martha Marcy May Marlene and Silent House.

And what makes that even more remarkable is the fact that she's full-time psychology student at New York University. "I had to turn in a paper Wednesday [for the class] psychoanalysis: Freud!" she told our own Ben Lyons. But despite being a student and a movie star, Olsen says her life is pretty normal. Have her older sisters helped her find a balance between celebrity and a grounded life?

"My life is so normal," she laughed. "My life is nothing but normal. [Sundance] is, like, so foreign to me."

And while she doesn't want to follow directly in her sister's footsteps when it comes to her acting career—her two films showing at Sundance thrillers that will probably have you inching toward the edge of your seat—their fashion tips are always welcome.

So what exactly do the fashion-forward twins advise? "Soft materials—just as long as you're comfortable! I just wear whatever feels comfortable that day."

Check out the video to hear more from the latest Olsen to ge swarmed with buzz, like what kinds of movies she really wants to do and what it was like to work with her Martha costar Hugh Dancy.
