By 2002, the British edition of PR Week (November 1, 2002) claimed that mary-kateandashley was the "number one girl's brand in the U.S.," and the brand was on its way to being a juggernaut in Great Britain as well. The Jackie Cooper PR company launched an extensive campaign, building up British girls' awareness of the Olsens, who had long been shown in re-runs in the United Kingdom. The Olsens landed in England in April to do press appearances. Their clothing lines were sold in the United Kingdom at the chain George at Asda. (George at Asda is part of Asda, a British subsidiary of Wal-Mart.)...

FULL HOUSE'S TYCOON TOTS

The Olsen twins of Full House are normal 7-years-olds, except they're rich, rich, rich!


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the cute-beyond-measure, sparkle-eyed twins who share the role of Michelle on ABC's Full House, act just like any other 7-year-old girls. They are shy around strangers, giggly when left to themselves. They share secrets. They like ice cream and ponies and swimming-pool slides. And, like most little girls, they fidget when they're sleepy and pout when they're angry.
"I want a tiger, Daddy," Mary-Kate kept saying, over and over, squirming in the back seat of...

Olsens launch assault on Aussie market

September 26 2002

The world's most successful television twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, have announced their billion-dollar empire was poised for an assault on the Australian market.

The mary-kateandashley brand is already a hit in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States where the twins, now 16, rose to fame in the hit series Full House, which ran from 1987 to 1995.

Since then, they've built a billion-dollar empire that includes clothing, movies, television shows, videos and books.

The pair flew into Sydney on Tuesday and...

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen


Though it's not easy to tell Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen apart, it's quite simple to see how they're different from the rest of the seven year olds of the world. They've got a hit TV show for one! And they're probably the most successful kids in TV-land! But they deserve all the fame and fortune.
After all, they've been in the biz for oh, seven years. Yup, since the ripe old age of zero MK & A have been seen on screen as Michelle on Full House. And it was their sheer adorableness that caused an entire country to fall in love with them. Well, you know how supply and...

OLSEN TWINS IN BITTER TUG OF LOVE

Heartbroken Full House twins Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen face the nightmare of being split up by a custody battle following their father's remarriage. "If they are separated it could leave emotional scars that would last a lifetime," a family friend told STAR. "But the judge may have to be Solomon." Insiders say the 9-year-olds, who jointly played Michelle Tanner on the hit sitcom, are devastated since dad David Olsen married his former secretary Mckenzie Taylor, 36 -and have taken opposite sides in the latest battle between their mother and father. They've even...

"Ook ik verdien het om gelukkig te zijn!"


Reageert op de negatieve roddelstroom rond haar persoon.

Er wordt weer druk geroddeld in Hollywood. Mary-Kate Olsen (22) schuimt het ene feestje na het andere af en stort zich op de drank. Wordt de roem haar te veel en heeft ze écht ruzie met haar beroemde tweelingzus? Wij hadden een persoonlijke babbel met MK in Los Angeles waarin ze voor het eerst zelf reageert!

Mary-Kate en haar tweelingzus Ashley Olsen werden, amper negen maand oud, al gebombardeerd tot kinderster toen ze de rol kregen van Michelle Tanner in "Full House", de serie waarin...

Full Time


You thought 'The Brady Bunch' ended?
Wrong. It's back - disguised as 'Full House.



THESE DAYS, IT has become commonplace to observe that there's an entire generation of American adults carrying around in its collective head the theme song and a few dozen vividly remembered episode of 'The Brady Bunch'. The series was a classic example of mass entertainment that bypass critical acclaim while shooting '70s youth with earnest but false banalities about the enduring strength of the nuclear family. The Bunch gave comfort both sincere and campy to its decade as no situation comedy ever has....

FULL TILT TO THE TOP!

They're only seven, but for the twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen it's Full Tilt to the top!


Now approaching the ripe old age of eight, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, twin stars of the immensely popular and long-running television series Full House, were just nine months old when they first shared the role of Michelle in 1987. While auditions usually terrify actors trying out for roles, Mary-Kate and Ashley slept through much of theirs! Their parents had sent some family snapshots to a talent agency, encouraged by a friend's agent who worked there. "We didn't think anything...

MOM KNOWS BEST!

Mom Knows Best! (Yes even in Hollywood)


The adorable Olsen twins of Full House may be tiny superstars, but their mother Jarnette says ther're just ordinary six-year-olds at home. "There's some sibling rivalry, as with all brothers and sisters," says Jarnette, referring to the twins, their seven-year-old brother; Trent and three-year-old sister Elizabeth. "For instance," she says, "Trent doesn't like it when the other kids play with his Nintendo -that's when some little fights come about." What happens then? "They're disciplined," says their mom. "There are time-outs. and sometimes...

FULL HOUSE TWINS FACE AXE

As they grow apart, they can't take turns playing TV's cutest kid- so one stays and the other must go

Twins Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, who star in Full House, are being split up. After they turn 6 this year, only one will be needed to play bubbly Michelle Tanner. Because of stringent labor laws when the show first aired in 1987, producers were forced to hire twins to play the one role. That's not the case after the children have their sixth birthday in June. There is also concern that, since the girls are fraternal -not identical-twins, they soon might start to look...

CHRISTMAS WITH THE FULL HOUSE TWINS

Christmas With The 'Full House' Twins

Every Christmas Eve, Dave Olsen, Ashley and Mary Kate's Father, cuts sponges into the shape of footprints, dips them in flour and makes little elf prints on the floor throughout the house. Outside, on the front lawn of the handsome 5,800-square-foot home in San Fernando Valley, he puts down prints around a sled-shaped section of the lawn. "The kids still believe that if they don't go to sleep, Santa's helpers won't come," says Dave. But they don't sleep for long. At 5:30 Christmas morning, Ashley and Mary Kate, 6, Elizabeth...

"Jane, are you sure Derek is going to be alright with this?"
"Positive. You'll get along fine. It's been ages since we were together, and if he wasn't happy, then why would he invite us both to the studio today?"
"Alright, just as long as he know's that your my girl now, no matter how many times he smiles."
"Jim, your the one I love, and, I love your smiles, not his."
We entered the modern studio building and asked for Derek at the front desk. The receptionist paged him while we sat in the extra large English club lounge.
"A girl could get lost in this thing." I...

MODERN ICON

She is an actress, a designer and a fashion icon. Luke Crisell meets the very private Mary-Kate Olsen to discover what influences her unique sense of style.


The second-oldest cemetery in Manhattan is a small, well-maintained affair: the names of those interred here are inscribed on tablets lining the walls. Hazelnut trees dot the lawn. Once an undistinguished plot of land on the Lower East Side, the graveyard now abuts the tiled patio of a boutique hotel where Mary-Kate Olsen has decided we should meet. "I remember this place used to be so cool", she says, raising her eyes to the...

"Roxy, here comes your bus."
"Check it out, Is that cool or what!" I said to Jane, bouncing up and down. I could hardly contain my excitement. I knew that from that particular point in time, my whole life was going to change.
There it was, gleaming in the late autumn sunshine, the Simple Plan Tour bus parked outside my house. The door opens with a swisshh and Justin saunters out looking every bit the Rock'N'roll manager with a dark T-shirt and matching denim jacket .
"Yo Rox, we gotta get going."
"Just a minute," I replied. I smiled at Jane who was on the front...

DOUBLE TAKE

It Takes Two To Play Prime Time's Top Mopet

"Just swing your head back and be sexy," instructs the acting coach. "Can you be sexy? Come on.show me how to be cool." On cue, the actress pops her head back, snaps her fingers and starts strutting.
No, we're not at the taping of another Jackie Collins miniseries. And the main character in this scene is no sex siren. She's 4-year-old Ashley Olsen who along with her twin sister, Mary Kate stars as cute, precocious Michelle Tanner on ABC's hit sitcom Full House.

They Built An Empire as Child Stars-then They Grew Up. Now, at 21 with Money to Burn, the Olsen Sisters Are Living in the Fast Lane-and Still Clinging to Each Other.

Even for die-hard New York City clubbers, it's a late night. But although it's nearly dawn, Mary-Kate Olsen is still going strong. The 21-year-old actress has been on her feet for hours at Manhattan hot spot Beatrice Inn, celebrating Valentine's Day with her boyfriend, artist Nate Lowman, 29, drinking Stella Artois beers and vodka and sodas, chain-smoking Marlboro Reds and, every once in a while, ducking...

TWICE THE FUN OR.

Twice the Fun-or Double Trouble?
One reporter's harrowing account of a day with TV's most popular munchkins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen by Les Wiseman


They haunt me, those hours I spent with them. I still wake up screaming. For it was a black day in a reporter's notebook when I interviewed the Olsen twins. On the surface everything seemed peachy; spend a day with North America's most beloved double-zygote munchkins. Mary Kate and Ashley, who turned 6 in June, have the sixth-highest TVQ (likability rating), slightly behind Cos and Michael Jordan and above Robin Williams, Kevin...
