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
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,"
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."
