The Actress Who Always Gets Mistaken for an Olsen Twin

Elle Fanning has a pair of celebrity doppelgängers: the Olsen twins. At least, according to the hilarious story she told on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Appearing on episode with Full House's John Stamos, Fanning shared a funny story about his former co-stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. 

"You've been acting since you were very, very young. Did you look up to the Olsens?" Corden asked. "I watched all their movies," Fanning responded. "We all went to the same high school at different times. I'm friends with their younger sister. It's funny: they come into my life a lot. There's a man who stands on my corner in New York where my apartment is, and he always says to me, 'Hey Olsen, hey Olsen!' I just keep going because then I'm the crazy person who says, 'I'm not an Olsen!'"
