Mary-Kate Olsen is a businesswoman, fashion designer, writer, former producer, and actress known for storming the film industry together with her twin sister Ashley Olsen at the age of nine months.
While many of her buddies were crying at home and giving their parents a “hard” time, Mary-Kate and Ashley were busy entertaining American households in the television sitcom Full House, in which they played the role of Michelle Tanner.
The beautiful girls then appeared in so many other television series and films such as “Passport to Paris” (1999), “Our Lips Are Sealed” (2000), “Getting There” (2002), “The Challenge” (2003), “Winning London” (2001), “So Little Time” (TV series, 2001 -2002), “Charlie’s Angels”: Full Throttle (2003), which they played perfectly to the admiration of their fans.
Their last film together was a 91-minute teen comedy entitled “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle”: New York Minute (released 2004). While Mary-Kate Olsen was cast as Roxanne Angelina “Roxy” Ryan, her twin Ashley Olsen played the character of Jane Elouise Ryan.
Mary-Kate Olsen Bio (Age)
Former Hollywood star Mary Kate was born on June 13, 1986, in Sherman Oaks, California, the daughter of Jarnette Olsen (mother) and David Olsen (father).
She received her secondary education at Campbell Hall School in Los Angeles, from where she moved to New York’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study in 2004.
Her father, David, is a real estate developer and mortgage banker, while his wife is a personal manager. In addition to the twins, the couple shares two children. One is Trent Olsen, Mary Kate’s older brother; the other is Elizabeth Olsen, the youngest child in the family.
A few years after Elizabeth’s arrival, David and Jarnette separated and finally completed their divorce in 1996. David Olsen then married another woman with whom he welcomed two beautiful children, Taylor Olsen, and Jake Olsen.
Her Twin Sister Ashley Olsen
Mary-Kate’s twin sister Ashely was born on June 13, 1986, as Ashley Fuller Olsen. Like her twin sister, she was a former actress and producer. Ashley is currently making waves in America as a fashion designer, author, and businesswoman.
Born in California, Ashley co-founded the fashion brands Elizabeth and James, The Row, Olsenboye, and StyleMint. She founded these brands together with her twin sister, with whom she also wrote a book entitled “Influence” (published in 2008).
The withdrawal from Hollywood in March 2012 seems to be the best decision the twin sisters have ever made, as their fashion brands have begun to pay off. Today the enchanting sisters are registered members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Year after year they reach ever greater heights and happily reap the fruits of their hard work.
In 2007, the beautiful twin sisters were ranked by Forbes as the eleventh richest women in the entertainment industry, with an estimated total net worth of $100 million.

Mary-Kate’s husband is not only a successful billionaire, but he is also the half-brother of Nicolas Sarkozy, the former president of France. From his first marriage to Charlotte Bernard, a French-born children’s book author, and freelance fashion writer, he also fathered two children. Bernard was married to Sarkozy for fourteen years.
