Believe it or not, the Olsen Twins turned 26 today. It just seems like yesterday when Mary Kate and Ashley played the adorable Michelle Tanner on “Full House“. The fraternal twins stole the audience’s hearts and the show with their too-much-too-handle cuteness.
Once their ABC sitcom left the air in 1995, they began to heavily merchandise their image through their company Dualstar which they created in 1993. They released numerous DVDs, a clothing line, fragrances, books, dolls and so forth. Their company was so successful, Forbes has included them on their “The Celebrity 100 List” since 2002. In 2007, they ranked 11th with an estimated net worth of $100 million.
Even though their attempt to transition to more mature roles in “New York Minute” flopped, the twins have remained in the spotlight. Whether it was them enrolling and attending NYU, their latest boyfriends or what clothes they’re wearing (Boho chic anyone?), the public’s fascination with them hasn’t ceased. In fact, I think it’s even grown along with them.
I’ve searched far and wide to find pictures where the two were actually identified. See if you have what it takes to tell them apart beside the obvious of one of them being anorexic and the other being bulimic. LOL. I kid.
