Why You Never Hear From The Olsen Twins Anymore


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen began their career
as infants, and never really slowed down. “I wish someone would share their pancake
with me.” “Here, daddy.” In 2002, when the twins were only 16 years
old, Fortune called them “the most financially successful child stars ever.” The sisters’ success was so pervasive that
their team founded the production company Dualstar in 1993, which generated $500 million
in retail sales in 2001 alone. By the early aughts, they had their own fan
club, dolls, countless movies, and more. But despite their astronomical success, the
twins have pretty much disappeared in recent years — so much so that an exhibit titled
‘Olsen Twins Hiding From the Paparazzi’ opened up in New York City. So what’s this secretive duo been up to? [Music] Silver-screen sayonara We first met the Olsen twins as infants when
they shared the role of Michelle Tanner on Full House from 1987 to 1995. And while most child stars’ popularity slowly
fades, the opposite was true for Mary-Kate and Ashley. “I’ve been on Full House for…ever.” Before they ditched the public eye as adults,
the two starred side-by-side in a handful of feature films, made-for-TV movies, and
even had their own television show, So Little Time, from 2001 to 2002. It wasn’t long after, that Ashley worked her
last big role in 2004’s New York Minute. Mary-Kate kept it going ’til 2011, appearing
in a few episodes of Weeds in 2007 and finally alongside Vanessa Hudgens in 2011’s Beastly. “So I don’t know how the extras think I am
in real life, because when I get those shoes on, you know, it’s a whole other story.” By 2012, the twins confirmed to Elle UK that
they had pretty much retired from acting altogether. Mary-Kate’s rehab Spending your entire childhood in the public
eye isn’t easy. For Mary-Kate, weight became an issue, and
she reportedly attended rehab in 2004 for an eating disorder. She told Marie Claire in 2010, “I think it’s
really important to be able to talk when something’s wrong. I learned at a really young age that if you
don’t talk about it, it can drive you insane.” Fuller House pass In 2016, Netflix rewarded Full House fans
with a reunion show, Fuller House, which began airing in February of that year. The entire cast returned — minus the Olsen
twins. About a year before its release, Mary-Kate
told WWD, “We just found out about it today.” Of course, the cast had to acknowledge their
absence. In the pilot episode, Bob Saget’s Danny Tanner
explained to the family… “Well, Michelle sends her love, but she’s
busy in New York running her fashion empire.” When asked about the twins not returning to
the show, Dave Coulier told Entertainment Weekly, “I think they have a different perspective. When we get together and we reminisce, they
were babies. So they don’t share those same memories.” Candace Cameron Bure had a different take,
telling Glamour, “Stop asking us about Mary Kate and Ashley! There are no hard feelings at all…If they
show up, great, but if they don’t, we have this awesome, amazing show.” All about that style Just because Mary-Kate and Ashley aren’t working
in Hollywood, doesn’t mean they’re not working. “And we’d like to thank our customers.” “Our customers and our, um…” The girlbosses currently own two fashion lines,
Elizabeth and James and The Row. Ashley told Net-A-Porter, “I’ve always been
a worker. It has taken me a lot to figure out how to
take a vacation.” As for whether or not they’ll ever return
to the big screen, Mary-Kate told Marie Claire in 2010, “I still read scripts, and if something
great comes along, that’s great.” #Private These days, being active on social media is
everything. But, Mary-Kate and Ashley have zero public
social accounts. Ashley told Net-A-Porter, “We don’t dive into
that world; we don’t have Instagram or Facebook. We’ve stayed quite sheltered.” And for good reason… “What do people say to you when they come
up to you?” “Can I have your autograph, can I have your
autograph?” “Take a picture.” The duo posted their first ever selfie in
2016, when they took over Sephora’s Instagram account to promote their Elizabeth and James
line. Hating on the fame Back in 2002, when the twins were 16, their
manager Robert Thorne told Fortune, “They are a property now, aside from being people
with a heartbeat.” In 2007, Mary-Kate told Entertainment Weekly
that their career, “Wasn’t about acting…It was about entertaining a specific audience…It
was about pleasing other people and making kids smile.” But while their work was about others, it
seems that the twins grew to resent how it wasn’t really about them. In 2010, Mary-Kate made it plain when she
told Marie Claire, “I would never wish my upbringing on anyone.” Settling down “Who was the first to get kissed? You must have discussed this.” “Me?” Both Mary-Kate and Ashley are busy nurturing
relationships. In 2015, Mary-Kate married Olivier Sarkozy,
the half-brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, in a very private wedding. According to Page Six, all guests had to turn
over their phones before entering, and were also treated to “bowls and bowls filled with
cigarettes.” A little more interesting than jordan almonds,
right? Family-gal Mary-Kate explained everything
to Net-A-Porter in 2017, “I have a husband, two step-kids and a life.” As for Ashley, she was most recently linked
to financier Richard Sachs; but according to Us Weekly, the couple split in March 2017
after five months of dating. Regardless of how they fill their days now,
the Olsen twins have secured a place in pop culture — whether or not they ever decide
to hop in front of the cameras again. “But I am the cute one / She’s just my sister.” Thanks for watching! Click the Nicki Swift icon to subscribe to

They had two tv shows of their own, not just one: Two of a Kind and So Little Time. I loved Two of a Kind. I was so sad when it was cancelled after the first season.

I, like many men, loved watching these girls grow up. Men became obsessed with them and the sexuality aspect caused them to become separated from popular culture. Men wanted to see them nude and they didn’t want to do that so they lost all popularity among men. I always keep an eye 👁 on them and I know they had terrible personal guidance in their private lives. I know they have suffered trying to be the boss. These women are private because of the men. Men are still obsessed with them and that scares them. They are tiny and vulnerable and predators are attracted to them. Women face far more dangerous threats than men. Obviously. They like older men because of the security and maturity level of older men. I pray for them and have for decades now.

So many times I have heard of child stars that when we saw them then looked so healthy and happy then later in life I'll be shocked to hear of drug and/or alcohol abuse and even eating disorders. While I absolutely love Hollywood for the many movies and shows they give us to brighten our day, I do believe there are a lot of trappings for these children when they grow up, with the many partying, fast paced life. That if they don't keep someone around to guide them they fall victim. No one puts a gun on them to do anything, but what teen don't like to party. For most of us it's a phase we go through, and grow out of, like 'sowing our wild oats', as I did for 20+ years, and I'm glad to be out of that life. So I don't look down at young people partying. I be glad to see them enjoying themself as long as they keep it safe, and don't overdo things. It may seem like Big Fun now, but overdoing, or causing hurt to yourself or others, will bring regret. Young people don't need liquor to have a good time. Just dancing and a Sprite will give you that lovely feeling. I remember as a teen I wouldn't want to be home on a Saturday night. Had to be at a party. Now, a party is not on the list, and I would rather be home every night. Partied out. As for eating disorders 9 times out of 10 they came about by someone commenting negative about their weight, as happened to my beautiful singer Caroline Carpenter, when she was gorgeous to begin with. So don't take the opinions of others. When You look in the mirror and like what You see keep it right there, and forget about any negative comments made at you, probably made by a miserable person who didn't like their own self. It seems like Shirley Temple is one of the few child stars, that continued on with a healthy life. Young people we only have one body, and just like a car it can break down. It needs a certain amount of water, oil, food for fuel, and exercise. Be wise and learn about health, because your body is your biggest asset.

How long have you been on the show? "Forever."

I understand why they didn't wanna be apart of the Full House reboot considering it's probably the main source of why they had to endure fame for so long.

Being attracted to rich men who are that much older than you really proves they were sexually abused when they were young because they are still looking for that comfort to this day. French president's brother and Richard Sachs MY ASS you have ANYTHING in common with THEM! But it's the public's complete and utter ignorance of obvious truths that probably sent them on the downward spiral a long, long time ago.
