    Bet you didn’t know there were more than two Olsen sisters.

    A third Olsen sister is making a splash at this year’s Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT, getting good reviews for her turn in the the drama, “Martha Marcy May Marlene.”

    Elizabeth Olsen, the younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, has also been signed to appear in the upcoming “Red Lights,” starring heavyweights Robert DeNiro, Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy.

    THEN/NOW: ‘Full House’ Cast.

    That got ugly.

    Big sister Ashley, meanwhile, has kept her love life on the down low. She has been with her boyfriend, production assistant turned actor Justin Bartha, since 2008.

    That’s a 50 -year relationship in Hollywood years.

    Ashley has changed her focus from acting to the world of fashion. The style icon is the driving force behind the twins’ high end couture line, The Row. She also recently launched her own well-received contemporary sportswear line, Elizabeth and James, named after the aforementioned younger sister Elizabeth and older brother James.
