olsen twins

Can you actually believe that Mary-Kate and Ashley are legitimately 33-years-old? We can't quite hold onto our grasp of reality, because whenever we picture the famous child actresses, they're baby twins.

We spent much of our childhoods following their rise to adolescents, from becoming the youngest ever producers at the tender age of six to starring in hit teen movies to eventually slaying the fashion industry.

We simply love to live in the past, so we're reflecting on some of their cinematic golden moments on-screen, most of them involving boyfriends.

They jetted around cities like Paris, Rome, London and Sydney for seemingly no reason, they always seem to get dates out of nowhere and end up in the most random celebrity situations.

While having the best style ever, too. God, we were desperately jealous of those twins…and still are. They're fashion designers now, with a fortune between them. Talk about living the dream.

1. Passport To Paris: THAT Eiffel Tower dinner


A post shared by Robert Luciano (@italian234) on

Passport To Paris was a pretty strange movie, but one of the Olsen twins' most envious moments was when they enjoyed an unsupervised dinner atop the Eiffel Tower with two gorgeous boys.

13-year-old Melanie and Allyson Porter end up in police custody for trespassing after dining with Jean and Michel, but they eventually get the Embassy clean drinking water so Grandpa Edward accepts them again.

As tweens, all we wanted was to live in a Parisian embassy and dine on top of landmarks with beautiful French boys, but shockingly that didn't end up happening for us…

2. Our Lips Are Sealed: The theme park scene

Remember when Mary-Kate and Ashley hung out at Australia's Luna Park after hours?! With handsome young men?! Yeah, we do too. We were green with envy.

Sisters Maddie and Abby Parker are put in the FBI's Witness Protection Program after they see a robbery at the local museum, and witness the priceless Kneel Diamond being stolen.

They get to go all around the world as a result of their lack of secrecy, and end up in Sydney before tackling two assassins and defeating the gang.

We wanted to do that so badly, we literally tried to witness crimes as kids to get the same plot-line.

3. Holiday in the Sun: The private jet to the Bahamas…just because.

The Olsen twins are from Illinois, but are whisked away to the Bahamas on a PRIVATE JET by their parents for winter break, and are disappointed because they wanted to go to Hawaii with their friends.

We're stunned at how privileged this is, in hindsight, but still extremely jealous. They got to go to the Caribbean and film scenes with Megan Fox, so we're not jealous at all. Not even a little bit.

4. New York Minute: The Simple Plan music video

Once again, how can you just stumble into a Simple Plan music video? Just by living in New York, perhaps.

Jane and Roxy Ryan are teenage Long Islanders and end up in a rake of mad situations when they head into Manhattan instead of going to school.

Studious Jane needs to give a speech to gain a vital scholarship, while carefree Roxy wants to track down her favourite rock band. Their school's truant officer is trailing behind though, remember Eugene Levi?

We were obsessed with the looks that came out of this movie, remember their 'I Love NY' matching t-shirts and red skirts? Jane's pink blazer and Roxy's badass hats and rock chick outfits? We're still into it.

Not to mention the love interests they continuously managed to act with, like Riley Smith and Jared Padalecki in this case. Stunning men, stunning outfits, stunning movie.

5. Billboard Dad: Getting to write your special message on a billboard in the dead of the night

As if it wasn't enough to live in a surfing town, have the coolest sculptor ever as your dad, AND be amazing at diving, the Olsen twins got to make their very own billboard.

Emily and Tess Tyler are desperately trying to get their widowed dad, Max, a girlfriend. They decide to put up an advertisement in the middle of the night on a billboard, like Banksy but make it fashion.

We asked our parents if we could paint our own ads, and they laughed for about 27 years before shooting it down. Harsh.

6. Switching Goals: Becoming co-champions of the youth soccer league

13-year-old identical twin sisters Sam and Emma couldn't be more different, with Sam as the star soccer player and tomboy, and Emma as the polar opposite girly girl. They always seem to be either fiercely tomboy or insanely girlie. don't they?

Their father Jerry is one of the soccer coaches, and is pressured to pick Emma for the Hurricanes team by his wife, Denise. Sam ends up on the Buzzards team, which hasn't won in years, and Sam must share the spotlight.

In the finals, Emma realises she's actually unreal at goal-keeping (random?) but must block Sam's kick. The game ends up as a tie, and the gals become co-champs. Sam gets a date with Greg, and Emma goes out with Richie, so everyone wins.

7. Getting There: When they get a MUSTANG for their 16th birthday and went on a road trip with friends

Imagine our parents let us drive cross-country with our friends on a hugely expensive road trip when we were sixteen? Not to mention getting a Mustang for our birthday.

What, and I can't stress this enough, the f*ck did they do to deserve such glory? Well, they are the coolest twins on the planet, and I'm saying that as an identical twin myself.

Sisters Taylor and Kylie head to Salt Late City with their friends for the 2002 Winter Olympics (again, WTF) and their car unfortunately gets stolen on the way there. The teens take a coach from LA to Vegas, but get separated at a petrol station.

Kylie gets to Vegas, and ends up at a wedding, while Taylor ends up in a horse town, but meets a millionaire named Charly with a private jet. As you do. Taylor ends up skiing and spending the day with her Olympic crush, Alex Reisher. Of course she did.

There were hundreds of iconic Olsen Twins movie moments, but those are probably our favourite and most absurd. (We're still not over the fact that they had a pet kangaroo in Our Lips Are Sealed.)

When Mary Kate Olsen married Olivier Sarkozy, who is 47-years-old, we have to say we didn't see it coming.

But as it turns out, dating an older guy might be a good thing for the Olsen twins.

Ashley was seen over the weekend getting cosy with 59-year-old artist George Condo in New York.

The pair were out on a lunchtime date, and a few witnesses said that they certainly looked… close.

"It was obvious something was going on. It looked like she was dining with her grandpa, but they were holding hands and snuggling," the insider said.

Oh well, if it worked for Mary Kate, it could work for Ashley!



When we imagine an museum exhibition inspired by the Olsen twins, we're thinking over-sized scarf displays, a guide to working Birkenstocks with socks and a look at every single ensemble they ever wore to a theMET gala. 

As well as an in-depth analysis of their days as child stars, obviously

And while there could potentially be an Olsen exhibition, it's not gonna look anything like this. 

American art curators Matt Harkins and Viviana Olen are instead proposing an exhibition that will be called The Olsen Twins Hiding from the Paparazzi.

And while it's not what we were expecting, we are definitely intrigued. 

The proposed collection will include Laura Collins' paintings of the twins hiding behind various bizarre items in order to escape the media glare. 

We're talking the Olsens hiding behind everything from expensive designer handbags and coffee cups to yoga mats. 

The exhibition is currently seeking to be funded on Kickstarter and there's only 18 days left to make this wacky vision a reality. 

Sounds wonderfully weird to us. 


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen celebrated their 29th birthday over the weekend, and decided to go all out for the occasion.

Ditching their all-black ensembles for once, the girls threw an incredible Olympics-themed outdoor bash for friends and family at an estate in the Hamptons, and we are LOVING the pictures.

It's certainly not as swanky an affair as we'd usually associate with the superstar sisters, but it looks like one hell of a birthday party.

With a series of outdoor activities from dunk tanks, obstacle courses and even fireworks on hand, friends were split into either Team MK or Team Ashley for the day's events.

Although our invite seems to have gotten lost in the post, partygoers kept us all updated throughout the day, sharing #OlsenOlympics photos via social media – though a number of the original posts were deleted by the end of the evening.

We bet a few of those t-shirts were robbed as souvenirs…

It seems like Ashley's team won out at the end of the day, with the girls' pal Jared Seligman sharing this picture of the victorious birthday girl:

"Champions," he wrote, adding, "#TeamAshley #OlsenOlympics #Twinning #SorryMK."

While a great crowd was on hand to help the girls celebrate, it seems Mary Kate's fiancé, 46-year-old French banker Olivier Sarkozy, had to skip out on proceedings. 

We hope the girls had a great day all the same!



At 29 years of age, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have lived almost their entire lives in the public eye.

Making their onscreen debut at just 9 months old in Full House, this hard-working duo have managed to turn their acting career and their other accomplishments into their own brand dynasty.

To celebrate their birthday, we are going to take a look back at some of their biggest achievements over the years.

1. At the age of six, the girls founded Dualstar Entertainment, which made them millionaires by the age of ten.

2. When they turned 18-years-old, the teenage media moguls took over the company. The CEO of Dualstar described the girls saying, “They’re smart. They’re articulate. They’re rational.” The girls remained owners of the company until its collapse in 2007.

3. Following their film careers, the Olsen twins took a very impressive dive into the fashion industry. Aside from being described as fashion icons, the pair launched their own clothing line called Row in 2006.

4. Only last week, Mary-Kate and Ashley took home the Designer of the Year award for Row’s women’s wear at the CFDA Fashion Awards.

5. The sisters are said to have a combined worth of over €250million. 

Wow… that is a LOT to accomplish before the age of 30. We hope they are having a huge celebration tonight because after reading that it sounds like they could do with the night off! 



Mary-Kate Olsen has sparked rumours she has had plastic surgery on her face following a red carpet appearance last week.  

The actress stepped onto the red carpet alongside her sister Ashley at the 2014 World of Children Awards in NYC last Thursday.

However, her appearance was a little less ‘Olsen’ than normal, sparking rumours that she has gone under the knife…

Renée Zellweger caused similar talk when she appeared on the red carpet a few weeks, sporting what many believed to be a dramatically different appearance. 

Mary-Kate is also rumoured to have tied the knot with Olivier Sarkozy recently after they were spotted wearing matching gold bands


They grow up so fast! It seems like only yesterday we were watching Mary-Kate and Ashley on Nickelodeon, and now one of the twins has apparently tied the knot!

Mary-Kate and her banker fiancé Olivier Sarkozy were spotted wearing gold bands on their ring fingers as they ate lunch in the Hamptons recently, a sight which immediately set tongues wagging. 

And a "well-connected source" has now confirmed that the happy couple have indeed made things official. Speaking to Lucky magazine, the insider revealed that the pair got married in a top-secret ceremony sometime over the last few days.

Just a few family members were in attendance at the hush-hush wedding, it has been reported. MK and Olivier's reps have yet to confirm or deny the news, but those gold rings look like a pretty sure sign to us!

The couple, who share a townhouse in New York, got engaged back in March after almost two and a half years together. 

Although they did receive some heat at the beginning of their relationship for their 17 year age gap, it seems older men are somewhat of an Olsen tradition. Ashley's currently dating director Bennett Miller who is 19 years her senior.

If 27-year-old Mary-Kate did indeed marry her sweetheart, she'll also become stepmother to his two children, aged 14 and 11, from a previous marriage.

Congrats to the happy couple!
