Who are the Olsen twins?
Mary-Kate and Ashley Fuller Olsen, popularly known as the Olsen twins, are former actors and fashion designers. They were born on June 13, 1986, in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, California. The former child actors are 35 years old as of May 2022. Born to David and Jarnette Olsen, the twins are older sisters to Marvel actress Elizabeth Olsen.
The Olsen twins debuted as Michelle Tanner on the 1987 ABC series ‘Full House’. They shared the Michelle Tanner role in the series to adhere to the child labour laws. They were only nine months old when they landed the role.
However, they started starring together in other TV series and video projects when they were six and continued even as teenagers. Their entertainment firm, ‘Dualstar’, earned them the status of one of the richest ladies in the entertainment industry.
What are the Olsen twins known for?
The Olsen Twins are mainly known for acting. Their acting career started at the age of six months. As infants, they played the role of Michelle Tanner on the television series, Full House. They would later feature in other TV shows and films, performing as a duo and as separate characters. Some of the movies they featured in include: To Grandmother’s House We Go (1992), Double Double, Toil and Trouble (1993), How the West Was Fun (1994), and The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley (1994-19970), etc.
In 1995, when the Full House TV series ended, the Olsen twins made their first feature film appearance in ‘It Takes Two’. They co-starred with Steve Guttenberg and Kirstie Alley in the film. They also started a second video series titled “You’re Invited to Mary-Kate & Ashley’s”.
Why the Olsen Twins’ quit acting
The Olsen twins had a very passionate and large fan base due to their outstanding performances on the screen. But unfortunately, the news of their total departure from film and television in 2012 came as a great shock to their fans. They attended New York University together and later became fashion designers. Perhaps they abandoned their on-screen personalities because of their keen interest in fashion design. For instance, they own a fashion label called The Row, which was named after Savile Row in London.
The primary purpose of creating the luxurious fashion firm was to empower women and stop fashion stereotypes. The New York Times once declared Mary-Kate a fashion icon for pioneering her signature “homeless” look. Originally, the twins never wanted their surname to be used in the company’s name. They wanted the garments to speak for themselves, not dwelling on their former glory.
Are the Olsen twins married?
Yes, it is true that one of the Olsen twins, Mary-Kate married Olivier Sarkozy in 2015. But the marriage did not last long. The ex-couple divorced in May 2020 at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The reason was that Sarkozy had brought in his ex-wife and children to live in the same apartment with Mary-Kate. But she didn’t accept this and filed for a divorce.
For her twin sister, Ashley, her relationship with Louis Eisner, a 33-year-old artist has been going well since 2017. In fact, the relationship appears to be very strong now. Because they don’t go about flaunting their relationship all over the town, some fans believe that they’re hiding it.
But a source disclosed that it wasn’t the case. “It’s not that they are trying to keep their relationship on the down-low, Louis just doesn’t like the spotlight – even less so than Ashley”, the source revealed. Interestingly, the lovebirds seem to be very into each other. They apparently care more about each other than what the public perceives about their relationship.
Did the Olsen twins get plastic surgery?
The answer to the question of if the Olsen twins have had any plastic surgery done is no, at least according to what is known. It may interest you to know that the twins are not identical as many fans assume. They are actually fraternal twins, and this justifies their physical distinctions. Most people thought that Mary-Kate had undergone plastic surgery. This was after images of her looking differently circulated in 2004. However, she is a smoker and one plastic surgeon explained that the changes could have been triggered by factors like accelerated aging, connected to her use of nicotine products.
Ashley, on the other hand, is rumoured to have a botched facelift, which made her face swell, turning black and blue. Despite the speculations, there has been no true confirmation that the Olsen twins have gone under the knife.
Did the Olsen twins get sexually assaulted?
Many have alleged that late stand-up comedian and actor Bob Saget sexually assaulted the Olsen twins. But this is not true at all. From 1987 to 1995, the twins played the role of Bob’s character Danny Tanner’s daughter, Michelle, on the TV show, Full House. And there was never a case of sexual assault from the late actor.
According to information gathered by DNB Stories Africa, the rumours about the Olsen twins’ sexual assault came up after the release of a misleading video. The video is titled “Inside Bob Saget’s Inappropriate Relationship with the Olsen Twins”. In the now-deleted video, Bob admitted to fondling a doll that they used in place of the Olsen twins on the ‘Full House’ set. But it appears Saget was only being funny in the tape, and there have not been further reports to suggest that he was a pervert or a paedophile.
