The Twin sisters Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen poses for the December 2013 issue of Allure. They show off their different personalities with two separate covers.
Here are some views which are shared by the sisters with the magzine:
“I think people looked at us with the perception of ‘Oh, you just have everything. You can do whatever,” Mary-Kate says. “Strangers assumed we had enough money to just do nothing—or why would we go to college? And it’s such an uneducated perspective! You still have to grow within business. You have to take a chance.”
“I was reading scripts, and ultimately I just said to the people who were representing me, ‘I need to do things 100 percent. I don’t feel like I can give you 100 percent of my time…There’s a lot of compromise in the entertainment industry. I can’t sit in this room and audition for this part.”
Early this month, Mary-Kate shared she and her sister never really “felt like we were actresses,” adding, “We still feel welcome in the entertainment industry. But it’s not the one we’re in.”
But while their interests may shift, the sisters’ bond is unbreakable. Or as Ashley sums it up: “Beyond words. We both carry the weight of each other.”
