Separating the Twins

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are on the loose in the big city in their new film "New York Minute." But make no mistake -- this is a sister act who’s all grown up.

So have the sisters made a conscious effort to forge separate identities as they get older? "We have separate identities, it's what people perceive," Mary-Kate responds. "We're different, we're Mary-Kate and Ashley."

That's right, please don't call them the Olsen twins anymore: the 17-year-olds are almost legal, and not only starred in, but produced their new movie. They even created cameo parts for Jack Osbourne and their TV dad, Bob Saget.

"We kind of just pushed it, we thought it would be funny," Ashley says of having Saget in the film. "We like to poke fun at ourselves and what we've done," adds Mary-Kate. "And we thought it would bring back memories for other people with watching ‘Full House.’"

So what do Mary-Kate and Ashley think of their other "Full House" co-star, John Stamos and his breakup with wife Rebecca? "We love him, and we hope everything’s okay," Ashley says.

The girls, who started acting when they were only 9 months, will turn 18 on June 10th, which will make a lot of guys around the world very, very happy. But Ashley insists, "I feel like I’m still 10." "Yeah, 10 and 40 at the same time," amends Mary-Kate.

And once they’re officially adults, it'll be off to college at NYU where, even though they'll be roommates, Mary-Kate and Ashley say they'll live separate lives. In fact, Ashley tells us, "We probably will do movies separately, we can’t do twin movies forever."
