Catching Up With The Olsen Twins

Even 14 years after unofficially retiring from acting, Mary-Kate and Ashley are still two of the richest and most famous celebrities in the world. Let's take a look back at some of the most overlooked aspects of their early acting careers, including a potential scam that sounds ahead of its time and a very specific event service they helped pioneer that doesn't really seem to make sense in any time period.
This is probably the longest I've worked on a video since that Vine retrospective I made last year. Please reward my efforts by paying close attention and telling your grandparents about it when you're done.

    It's actually hillarious these 2 were never good actresses. Just insanely populair because....reasons. This was just a prime example how they try to make money out of everything. Capitalism at it's finest and now sooooo many years later it is their younger sister who is actually the best actress. And the most sane one of the 3.

    The people saying they’d rather have money than their childhood don’t seem to realize childhood is very important to their life, if the Olsen twins started acting when they were, say 7 or so it wouldn’t be to bad, but they started when they were still infants, their entire life centered around acting, imagine your a baby, still trying to get used to life, and your thrown into this massive spotlight with a massive fanbase and you just can’t do anything about it, the amount of mental strain that must put on someone especially at that age is unbearable, sure you get a lot of money from it and your essentially set for life but is it really that worth it when thinking back to what a lot of people would consider the best years of their life your reminded of the amount of mental strain and work you had to go through?

    It's so weird, the first I heard of them was when I saw one of their books/movies while browsing the kid's section in the library. From the style of the cover, I literally thought "Mary-Kate and Ashley" were fictional characters from a book series. I didn't realize they were real people until years later, and it took me many more years to realize they were huge celebrities who got their start on a show called "Full House." I'm an early 00s baby btw. It's so weird that they were just marketing props, constantly playing these alternate versions of themselves to fill the pockets of opportunistic (and exploitative) adults.

    i doubt anyone will see this but i really enjoy this video. i never watched this before because i know a lot about them-the good and the bad. they were also part of the bullshit-which is also a choice but part of their circumstance and again who gives a shit about billionaires or millionaires in the long run-of like the celeb and fame and like the "white party girls" era. they were like all over pro-anamia blogs and shit becuase all those girls def had EDs but they struggled with that and other addictions publically (i'm sure u no from what u saw.) one of the most fascinating things is The Row which is a fucking GREAT fashion line (but unethical lmao and they werent paying their interns) it's crazy what they've been able to do with that and really make a name in style and fashion. but even in their like dating choices they love older men and it's like damn what fucked u up?!?! lmao the parents dont give a shit. courtney stodden's story is really interesting in this regard. i think we give the benefit of the doubt to their caretakers when it's all on the caretakers to take care of them (lol.) not just in an ignorance sense but in a "my feelings first" type of thing. but i also dont believe in child labor so they shouldnt act unless they really want to lmao and not have predatory adults all over seeping fucking money from them they are clearly a showbibz fam tho....i dont exactly feel bad like you said esp bc rich ppl but it's just shitty. there's no choice and the choice when you're older...you're still in arrested development. i think you're right in them not wanting to be necessarily famous but they do want t obe looked at and continue in that sort of society? a great artist was dating one of them but he's garbage cos he's like 50580870808 yrs old...he did the cover for kanye's MBDTF and it's like these millionaire billionaire artist art collector world and so in turn money and this place with the elites. i'm not sure if they are out of the limelight for no desire of fame or to keep themselves safe (like how beyonce never does interviews lmao) also martin = goat
