Elizabeth Olsen considered quitting acting.

The 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' star - whose older sisters are Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen - admits there was a point in her younger years when she wanted to shelf her dream of becoming an actress because she didn't want to be a child star.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the UK premiere of 'Captain America: Civil War', she said: "When I was nine or 10, I contemplated quitting acting, so it wasn't a real thing ...

"I think those people are completely separate. When I was a little girl, I didn't want to work as a child actress but as an adult I always wanted to be an actress, so I am thankful for every job."

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old beauty - who stunned in a daring white dress at the premiere on Tuesday evening (26.04.16) - previously insisted she doesn't have any "desire" to be famous.

She explained: "I wanted to be an actress, but felt it was such a cliché. I thought if I could make it more of a pretentious theatre experience, I could justify it. But celebrity and fame are so odd to me, I just don't have any desire for that at all."
