Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen became superstars overnight after starring in the television series Full House.
In 1987 they made their acting debut at just nine months old and appeared on the sitcom Full House sharing the role of young daughter Michelle Tanner.
They went on to appear in other television shows and music videos called The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley, as well as You’re Invited to Mary-Kate and Ashley’s sleepover party tapes.
Ashley told Vogue, “We had a collection with Walmart at twelve, which was the upper tier of the tween market. It was before celebrity designers. And we were designing it,” Mary-Kate added. “It would be jeans, a bit bohemian, or with a little blazer. It was fashion-forward.”
When the Olsen twins turned 18, they took control of Dualstar. Today, the company has retail sales of a staggering $1 billion.
The twins along the way decided to take a step back from the spotlight as their private life was a mess and they couldn’t do anything without the paparazzi being on their tails which even influenced their decision to move to New York.
Ashley said, “The press here in New York respect you more. It was the worst in Los Angeles when we got our license. They would follow us. They knew where we lived. And you don’t know who these people are. People just out of jail.”
The Olsen twins decided they were going to expand their empire and went on to launch their clothing line named Ths Row. The twins didn’t reveal to the world initially that they owned the high-end fashion line.
Ashley Olsen told I.D, “We didn’t want to be in front of it, we didn’t necessarily even want to let people know it was us. It was really about the product, to the point where we were like: Who could we get to front this so that we don’t have to?”
Today the sisters are doing well and unlike sister Mary-Kate, Ashley Olsen hasn’t been married.
Ashley Olsen dated Matt Kaplan, a former football player in 2001, but they went their separate ways three years later. She also dated actor Jared Leto, restaurateur Scott Sartiano, Lance Armstrong, Justin Bartha, and also Richard Sachs.
In 2017, it was speculated that she was dating Loius Eisner as they were always seen together. There are also engagement rumors, but Ashley is so keen on private life and keeps her affairs off social media.
Loius Eisner was born on July 31, 1988, and grew up in Santa Monica. He graduated from Columbia University with a degree in art and doing great for himself.
