Like her older sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley, Olsen currently lives in New York City, where she studied drama at NYU until 2013. She recently went back to work after a short time-out, during which she chose “to experience what it’s like to graduate from college and to find out how to be by yourself, which is kind of annoying but it’s important. I have not liked it,” she admitted. “I don’t like not working.”

That said, she values a good work-life balance and thinks a lot about how she would juggle her career with having kids. “It’s more important for women to do well in their family lives because they end up doing better in their job if they pay attention to their family,” she explained. “There was a time when you’d have a career, get to the top, and then have children, which I always thought was weirdas opposed to having kids witnessing the ebbs and flows, starting somewhere and growing together as a family.”

Olsen credits her own family with giving her a solid foundation. “Because my sisters were so grounded, it helped me be grounded. They never got caught up in things,” she told Marie Claire U.K. of the twins, who shot to fame as toddlers on Full House. “I did live a charmed life. We got to go on vacations and lived in nice homes, and I got to play club volleyball and ballet, which you don’t realize as a kid are expensive. My mom would say things like, ‘Lizzie we are not the Rockefellers!’ That put things into perspective.”
