Elizabeth Olsen considered changing her surname to get away from her sisters' fame.

The 'WandaVision' star - whose older sisters are Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen - admits it was "insanity" growing up in the spotlight and at one point, it got so bad that she wanted to change her last name to her middle name to distance herself from the success of her family.

She said: "It was insanity. There were times when my sisters would always be spotted and I would be in the car with them and it would really freak me out. It has helped me navigate how I want to approach my career. I always had this need to prove myself to everyone around me that I work really hard. I couldn’t walk in a room without everyone already having an opinion.

"The thing about nepotism is the fear that you don’t earn or deserve the work. There was even a part of me when I was a little girl that thought if I’m gonna be an actress I’m going to go by Elizabeth Chase, which is my middle name. And then, once I started working, I was like, ‘I love my family, I like my name, I love my sisters. Why would I be so ashamed of that?’ It’s fine now."

And Elizabeth admits fame has made her much more of a "homebody".

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday newspaper, she added: "Fame has also made me someone who is more of a homebody than maybe I would like to be but I know where not to go. If I could do whatever I wanted for the day, I’d start with the gym, then I’d go to the grocery store, because it’s my favourite thing."
