RIVALRY: Check Out The Stars Who Got One-Upped By Their Younger Sibling

Elizabeth Olsen

Hollywood is currently abuzz about new ‘It Girl’ Elizabeth Olsen.

Olsen stars in the new movie ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene,’ which wowed Sundance, is set to show in next week’s New York Film Festival and has already generated some Oscar buzz.


She’s the younger sister of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.  The child-star twins who went on to become hugely successful entrepreneurs. 

Olsen the younger is the latest sibling to show up her older brother or sister.

Michael Jackson was only 9 when the Jackson 5 formed, but even though he was the youngest, he was immediately the star.

Many people forget Shirley MacLaine and Warren Beatty are siblings. But in actual fact Shirley was a star long before her brother made his spectacular debut.

Sister Maggie was slaving away at the acting thing when her brother Jake zoomed by and grabbed the starring role in Donnie Darko.

Child star Dakota Fanning is still a child and still a star, however it's younger sister Elle who's been grabbing the spotlight of late.

After the wedding, which of these dresses were you still thinking about? Enough said.

Here's another pair people often forget are related. Emilio Estevez was actually the breakout Brat Pack star before Charlie one-upped him a few years later in Platoon.

Zooey was still an indie darling when big sister Emily was enjoying network success. But with Zooey's big new hit 'The New Girl' she is the only Deschanel on most people's radar.

Behold the Olsens. Whatever Elizabeth was eating appears to have worked.
