Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen rose to prominence in the 2000s after taking on roles as young children.

When they were only six months old, the twins made their acting debut on the renowned series Full House.

They co-starred in several TV episodes and movies during their adolescence before pursuing fashion design as adults.

They are currently worth $500 million, according to reports.

Elizabeth, the twins’ younger sister, shows the realities of growing up in the spotlight, demonstrating that the twins’ life of fame and money has a dark side.

Elizabeth Olsen has spoken publicly about her and her siblings’ experiences as child celebrities. Elizabeth Olsen had considerable success in significant adult roles such as Wind River and the Avengers films.

The 31-year-old Avengers actress described her childhood as “weird” and “very scary” because of the public’s “obsession” with her and her sister.

“It’s weird growing up with that,” she stated on the Table Manners podcast with Jessie Ware.


As a child, being followed and photographed was “frightening,” according to the actress who played Wanda Maximoff.

“The paparazzi section was unusual since they followed you, which terrified me as a kid.”

“They were worried about their turning 18,” she explained.

The extraordinary childhood of the twins had many dramatic twists and turns.

They were reputedly coffee addicted by age ten, while Mary-Kate battled anorexia and was admitted to a treatment facility as a teen.

Both women dropped out of college and appeared determined to lose the innocence of their child star personas, chain-smoking in the Met Gala restrooms. They allegedly needed to be carried from Oasis’ dressing room after too many drinks and nearly puking on Penelope Cruz at Naomi Campbell’s 35th birthday party.


As their 18th birthday approached, the twins were eager to shed their clean image for good.

Growing up in the spotlight made the twins eager to flee the spotlight in their late teens. They are well-known for making the creepy claim that they were “almost legal” to sexualise their image.


After their most recent film, New York Minute, was a box office flop, the two decided to stop performing and concentrate on building their fashion business.

The pair became increasingly reclusive as their fortune grew, shunning the spotlight and only occasionally spotted together near their New York offices.

Heath Ledger was purportedly dating Mary-Kate before he died of a drug overdose in 2008 at 27.

After a string of failed relationships, she eventually met French banker Olivier Sarkozy, who is 17 years her senior.

Mary-Kate and Olivier married on November 27, 2015, in New York City, after the actress filed for divorce in April of the previous year.

She later requested an emergency divorce order the day after filing, claiming that Olivier was evicting her from their home as the coronavirus pandemic progressed.

Mary-Kate recently made headlines when she and Sarkozy reached an agreement to dissolve their ‘nasty’ divorce.

Ashley, who is 28 years younger than billionaire Richard Sachs, also discovered love at the same time.

The actress-turned-fashion mogul has been secretly dating Still House Group artist Louis Eisner since 2017, but the relationship did not last.
