The Olsen Twins Biography
Fraternal twins who look remarkably alike, the Olsen Twins were born on June 13, 1986. The twins created their own little empire of TV movies, videos, books, magazines and a fashion line — all by the age of 15. Their work includes two video series, The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley and You’re Invited to Mary-Kate and Ashley’s, films such as How The West Was Fun (1994) and Getting There (2002) and the short-lived television series Two of a Kind (1998-99) and So Little Time (2001). Their first big-budget feature as grown-up teens, New York Minute, was released in 2004.
In 2004 they moved to New York City to attend New York University; both left school without graduating. They have since focused on fashion, launching their own high-fashion line called The Row, and (in 2011) a T-shirt line at StyleMint.com.
Ashley Olsen is slightly taller and a few minutes older than Mary-Kate… Mary-Kate Olsen is the one who had the much-publicized eating disorder.
