Though they look identical, Mary-Kate
, born on June 13th, 1986 in Sherman Oaks, California, are actually fraternal twins. Ashley is the "older" one, arriving a full two minutes before her sister. A close family friend persuaded reluctant mother Jarnette to take the four-month-old babies to an audition for a TV sitcom .
The Hollywood Reporter named the Olsen twins
as two of the 100 most powerful women in Hollywood.
Do they feel the power? “No,” says Mary-Kate, laughing.
“I mean, we definitely do everything for our company,” adds Ashley.
”In that sense, we feel powerful. But you go home, and no. You have kids running around the house. We have our little sister, our big brother. And a dog.”
Ashley and Mary-Kate may be the most financially successful child stars ever, but their “diapers-to-dollars” fairy tale is not just the story of two talented teens.
It’s also the story of a creative behind-the-scenes lawyer who turned the Olsen twins into brand names.
Fraternal twins Mary-Kate and Ashley had been splitting a role on the television network sitcom “Full House” since they were 9 months old and in diapers. Three years later, they were still only making scale wages.
“They were the lynchpin of the show and I was aghast when I saw what they were making,” says manager Robert Thorne.
