The 21-year-old actress's neighbours in Manhattan confuse her for the 28-year-old celebrity twins because of their strikingly similar physical traits, reports

"There's a man on my corner who thinks I'm an Olsen. He'll yell, 'Hey Olsen!' at me. It's really funny," Fanning told Nylon magazine.

Apart from pursuing her career as an actress, Fanning has also been studying part-time at New York University, where her major is 'Women In Film'.
