Olsen Twins

They were set up for life by the time they were 6. They can afford to be play-eccentric. The one was pretty good on Weeds years ago. I like their Granny-chic, even if it is contrived. But, the extreme thinness is too much. Weird and a bit try-hard, but have you ever heard negative things about them? They just seem like they go about heir business enjoying access to the celeb world and don't cause much trouble.

R13 I agree. I remember being so angry a few years ago when John Stamos was begging for their return to the show Fuller House on Netflix and then getting pissy in the press when they were being cagey about it. They have both said they felt like performing monkeys on the show and obviously don’t have the same memories as everyone else. Just let them live their lives.

The older looking one, Mary-Kate, is a horrific smoker. It's really amazing how much it aged her, compared to Ashley.

M-K also has been in rehab multiple times for body dysmorphia and eating disorders, brought on by the press constantly comparing her looks unfavorably to her sister's. That has to be a special kind of press hell--to have a body dysmorphic disorder AND have an objectively more attractive twin sister you're always photographed with.

I read a few articles about how they got rich. It was basically pedos being obsessed with their youth "products" they sold. All those obscure movies and videos they sold were not popular with regular little kids. Also there's been allegations of "darkness" behind the scenes of FH and Hollywood in general. These two are far from normal, healthy (physically and mentally) , emotionally mature young women. They're completely fucked. I don't see them making it past 40/45.

They got rich because their people set up a production company when they were kids and they gained control of it when they turned 18. It's called Dualstar and it produced everything they starred in.

And Mary-Kate looks like that because of eating disorders, a shit ton of smoking (at the wedding to the old guy, they had bowls of cigarettes for guests) and rumored drug use.

Mary Kate has no one to blame for her strange looks but herself. Looking at the 2005 Met pics shows that she looked quite similar to Ashley. Now, they both look like shit, so in the end it doesn't matter.

Witchy women!

I was their target demographic in their heyday. I watched all their shit from The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley to It Takes Two to their globetrotting direct to video pictures like Passport to Paris, Winning London, and Holiday in the Sun. All the girls I grew up with loved their stuff too. We definitely contributed to the empire they were building. Their TV shows started airing around the time I was growing out of them. They were an undeniable phenomenon so I'm not surprised they're worth as much as they are.

Wasn't one of them dating director Bennett Miller? Ashley I think. I doubt they're still together.

Someone theorized that the reason they style themselves like elderly women is because they so sexualized at a young age.

by Anonymousreply 7210/05/2018

You guys totally dismissing how they acquired their wealth are totally off the mark. They were extremely popular child stars after FH, practically like pop stars of the school age set. They were so popular that Howard Stern invited them to meet his youngest daughter (who I think was around 7 at the time) because she was so obsessed with them.

This 2001 article from the NY Times sums it up better than I could: they were a juggernaut:

[quote]Because Mary-Kate and Ashley are a brand. And not just any brand. For girls between the ages of 4 and 14 they are the brand. Despite the fact that assuming you are not a girl between the ages of 4 and 14 or her parent you may have only the vaguest idea of who Mary-Kate and Ashley even are, they are a brand doing bang-up business with companies including Wal-Mart, Mattel, HarperEntertainment, News Corp, AOL Time Warner and Disney. Their Mattel dolls are outselling all others in the comparable fashion-doll category, except for Barbie. Two of their direct-to-video movies were Nos. 1 and 3 on Billboard's children's video charts for the year 2000.

How were they "so sexualized" at a young age?

And I think there's a more obvious reason why they dress like that. They spent most of their early years as being seen as "the toddlers from Full House", and they're clearly self conscious about their size. (They look like little doll women.) I always got the sense that even as they were reaching their teens, people were still kind of treating them like babies, so dressing up like old ladies was their way of telling the world that they're all grown up.

All that silly posing in the OP picture. They both suck those cheeks in and pooch their lips out when they know they're being photographed. Neither one of them are doing it in the picture at R79. They look semi normal there. It's sad that they actually think doing that makes them look better. It makes them look like a fools.

I remember countdowns to their 18th birthdays. They co-hosted SNL shortly before their 18th birthday, and they even gave the countdown a "shoutout". Around the same time, Dave Coulier was on the VH1 show, "The Surreal Life", and he got upset when someone made a pervy remark about them; he acted like he heard those types of comments too often. (Back then, it was acceptable for straight men to perv over underaged girls, thanks to Britney Spears' marketing people. Remember the Britney Pepsi commercial with Bob Dole?)

They seem to be alright, though, compared to most child stars. The Heath connection was weird, but they haven't been arrested, and like someone above mentioned, they don't dress like hookers when they go out in public. I guess there's no need to clamor for attention when you've already had too much attention your entire life. (Fortunately Britney has turned out OK, too, inspire a few road bumps earlier on.)

It’s so sad to think that so many child stars end up being miserable or self destructive in one way or another . They may be worth a billion but they look sad and like they need a hug . Why can’t they ever leave the limelight and buy an island somewhere and do volunteer work or start a charity and work behind the scenes ? They’d be so much healthier and happier , but they can’t seem to get out . It’s a vicious cycle I guess .

That video really changed my mind about them. In pics they seem so humorless but they were real cute. Unfortunately, since that time there were BIs and rumors in the tabs that MK had some sort of weird cheek implants put in to give her that sucked in look and some other facial surgery. She wanted that look. I wonder if she was trying to look older and not like a kid liked she looked on Ellen. It was pretty obvious at the time because she looked so different from her twin. Based on the Op' s pic, sad to see they both look like they had it done.

I think you mean buccal R98.

Doesn't anyone think that their uber- diminutive size is a bit odd? I have a very weird theory about that, and it sort of blends into their obvious pysch and behavioral issues as well. It's not that they were sexually abused as young kids, rather they were physically abused by being given drugs/meds which halt growth and keep the child permanently mini-sized.

I watched a show on Discovery about these young kids who were profoundly disabled mentally, but they were not Down's Syndrome kids. The parents made a controversial choice to treat the girls with meds(I think they were hormones of some sort) which would keep the girls from going through puberty and making them easier for the parents to handle(since they would never be capable of living on their own.) When I saw some of the girls to whom this treatment was given they looked exactly like the Olsen twins. They had HUGE eyes and their faces were froggy looking. They doctors called them "pillow dolls" since they would be spending their entire lives lying in bed much like a doll baby.

Even if my theory has some truth to it, I am not suggesting that the twins were given the maximum dosage which would render them quiet little pillow dolls...but is it not possible that in order to maximize their career potential, the parents gave them a measured amount of the pillow doll treatment? I get it--it sounds crazy, but it would explain a lot, and as far as a parent doing something so heinous to their children for financial gain, I think their is more than adequate history of horrendous parental abuse of kids who are the family's meal ticket.

Can anyone give me a reasonable explanation for why they are so teeny when the rest of the family seems average sized?

[quote]I remember there were websites counting down the days until the Olsens turned 18, they were definitely sexualized.

That's not what "sexualized" means (to make sex jokes about someone). It means to use visual means (images, makeup, clothing, etc.) to sexually objectify someone.

For example, Miley Cyrus was definitely sexualized at a young age. The media had her doing bizarre pin up-style photos and "sexy" shoots with her father when she was barely in her teens.

The Olsen twins had cheap jokes made about them by comedians when they were almost 18, but they weren't "sexualized" by the media or anyone else. Their look growing up was strictly out of Seventeen Magazine/Claire's Accessories/Forever 21. I think that's another reason why they dress the way they do. The media (and their handlers) was trying to groom them into becoming sickeningly sweet and wholesome "Sweet Valley High" types and they weren't having it.

by Anonymousreply 11510/05/2018

Funny, R115. Now that you mention it. I'm surprised they were never approached to turn those Sweet Valley High books into some sort of TV series or whatnot. Most likely because they only wanted to do stuff they would own outright and maximize profits, I guess.

What I can’t figure out is how they can stand being together as many hours in a day as they are. Is that a thing exclusive to twins? Or sisters raised in the spotlight?

I adore my sister and we’re as thick as thieves (often mistaken for twins) and we even share a house, but the thought of going to work with her and running/owning a business with her as well is just too much.

No, because they were *always* odd-looking/had a doll-like quality about them, even when they were toddlers. I think that was what was part of their charm as child stars; it made them "quirky."

And they're not even "uber-diminutive", either. They're only 5'0"/5"1 ", and they're as tall as the most famous short celebrities. For reference--Lady Gaga (5'1), Jada Pinkett Smith (5'0"), Paula Abdul (also 5'0"), Lil' Kim (4'11").

I think they’re small because they’re twins. Some (not all) twins are born well below healthy birth weights because either the mother’s body couldn’t withstand the incredible additional stress of carrying twins, or just other complications. Like some premies are below average size too, this is by no means the norm, but it also occurs often enough that it could be that simple.

[quote][R118], no way in hell are they 5 feet tall. Go outside and look at a parking meter. Now subtract 2-3" from that. That's how tall they are. In shoes.

You're certifiable. They are not "dwarf-sized." They're just short. The reason why they appear so dwarf-like is that they're also petite (have a pixie-like frame). If they had an average bone structure, they'd actually be looking a lot taller than they are and everyone would be thinking they were 5'6" or something.

Here they are, barefoot, next to a guy who's clearly of average male height (at least 5'9").

Do any of you KNOW anything before you post in a thread?

They’ve been designing high-end well made clothing for more than twenty years.

Saks, Henri Bendel, Barneys, & Collette (RIP) have all featured the clothing.

The featured item on NET-A-PORTER today is a Paylee Suede Biker Jacket $3,400- from M&A’s The Row.

Barney’s is featuring The Row Women’s Essentials Stretch Leggings, $1,950-.

At SFA this week The Row Fairy Two-Layer Mock-Neck Long-Sleeve Evening Gown, Ecru, & 6,2900-

With the exception of R51, are any of you even gay?! As a demographic we are not cool or edgy anymore.

We used to make all the beauty & beautiful things in the world. Now, not so much.


If you don’t KNOW about something, don’t fucking post your stupid “opinions” about it. That’s the DEFINITION of ignorance.

They make millions every year selling their gorgeous clothing to wealthy women all over the world.

I’m not sure if looking identical actually means you are. I know two women who look VERY much alike (I can tell the difference, but a mutual friend saw one on the street and called her by the other’s name and was reprimanded quite harshly because they don’t think they look alike) and they insist they’re fraternal. Something about the sperm and the egg, I don’t care to think about it too hard.

Thank you, r165!!

I was also surprised to learn that the Sprouse twins are fraternal, and that ScarJo has a twin brother.

I knew fraternal triplets when I was growing up but the two girls always looked very different from each other. One was gregarious and made friends easily but was not nearly as attractive as her sister, who was exquisitely beautiful and shy. By the time they were young adults they both looked like their overweight, frizzy haired mother (as did their younger sister) and the brother turned into a tall, awkward, balding copy of his father. It seems many people grow up to ultimately resemble one of their parents so the lesson is to take a good look at ma and pa to know what you’re in for ten or twenty years down the road.

It’s weird to see fraternal twins who look like they could be identical, as the Olsens do (imo). And many identical twins do look disimilar enough from one another that you wouldn’t guess they were identical, although I’ve always been bad at telling twins apart.

R164 I have 5 sets of fraternal twins in my family. 4 sets of fraternal twin girls, and one set of boy/girl twins. My great great grandmother and her twin sister were fraternal but you’d swear they were identical. The other sets don’t look identical in the least and look like two separate people.

And yes, you are right, they are almost always polar opposites. One twin is usually more well liked than the other.

I know a pair of fraternal female twins, and even tho they look very similar the differences are very apparent and one always can tell them apart. Just like the Olsen twins.

God, the last thing I want to do is brand myself as the old timer of the group here, but I promise you R198 Beautiful Buccellati silver bowls filled with cigs was de rigueur at society weddings and gala parties in the 50s-70s.

I would imagine that the practice went on in certain parties in Europe even later than that. The most recent reference to providing cigarettes for your guests was around 10 years ago when Bobby Flay gave his tips for being the perfect party host. He said(and he wasn't wrong) that at adult drinks parties even non-smokers enjoy lighting one up with a cocktail, so he always scatters old fashioned cig bowls throughout the entertaining rooms as well as the patio.

R203 you know, going back to watch an ep. of SO LITTLE TIME it holds up ok. The witty repartee between Ash and MK is lightning-quick and the jokes are kooky enough to get laughs. I especially loved (and still do) the little backstage/mega segments that would play over the credits, of the twins dashing around their studio lot clutching lattes and making light fun of their castmates or whatever. They weren’t awful comediennes by sitcom standards, honestly; I’d take an Olsen twin over Kaley Cuoco for laughs anyday.

R217 They do the actual designs and by all accounts are heavily involved on a day-to-day basis. The line is highly respected in the fashion industry.

Others on the thread have mentioned that they originally had a line of tween clothing for Walmart. They weren’t very involved in that, but would approve final designs, etc. With The Row, they have been actively involved from the get-go. They also have a mid-range line called Elizabeth and James (named after there siblings) and they recently brought it in-house.

The article below gives a lot more info about the ins and outs of their businesses. Some quotes from the article:

“Those girls have a very refined, defined point of view to clothes and to fashion and to personal style,” Rutson said. “They have an extraordinary taste level. Now that it’s under Mary-Kate and Ashley, there’s more cool wardrobing in there and a lot more daywear.”

Ken Downing, senior vice president and fashion director of Neiman Marcus, said, “There was a very definitive fashion point of view to the collection. Great wide pants, terrific dresses with handkerchief hems, great colorization and very ‘buy-now-wear-now,’ which is something I’m beyond obsessed with because that is how the world is changing.”

“I love the new collection, it’s incredibly sophisticated,” said Brooke Jaffe, operating vice president, fashion director of women’s rtw at Bloomingdale’s. “It’s very cool, lots of subtle details that would make something that’s a basic feel really modern and updated. It’s accessible luxury.”
