Jeanne tells Entertainment Tonight that Olsen wasn’t a troublemaker, however he did have a sneaky method of getting out of issues he didn’t need to do. “If he didn’t like something, like a class or lessons, he figured out how to get the teacher to say, ‘I think you should pull him out of this,’” she says.

Olsen justified his actions by saying his piano trainer had a “weird” odor. “By the way, the piano teacher lady, she smelled weird,” Olsen says to his mom. “You did it to two piano teachers,” she says. “But they both smelled weird,” he replies. His mom then warns him that his piano academics is perhaps watching.

In a separate interview, Jeanne tells Entertainment Tonight she knew her son could be well-known after she noticed him carry out in a college musical. She says his confidence and stage presence left a giant impression on her. Here’s what Jeanne needed to say:

The most superb second was when he was in fourth grade and he was in a musical. I didn’t know he may sing. And he comes out on the stage, and I’m so nervous. And he turns round and faces the viewers and he places his arms out and he begins to sing.

 And I actually stood there with my mouth open due to his presence. And he wasn’t scared, he wasn’t nervous in any respect. And his dad mentioned to him, ‘If you’re a bit nervous, that’s a very good factor, as a result of that makes you higher.’ And he acquired off the stage later and mentioned, ‘I was really nervous, then I wasn’t nervous.’ He was only a pure. That’s once I knew there was one thing particular about this child.
