Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are no longer acting. They haven’t acted in over a decade. They have embraced their new lives as fashion icons and designers. In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen revealed they retired from acting. The girls explained they were establishing themselves as a brand. They had no desire to stick around in Hollywood.
Mary-Kate exclaimed that they never “felt like we were actresses.” They spent more time “building a brand” rather than acting. Ashley agreed with her twin sister. She said that from the time they were child stars, she felt they were working on their image. She said she always “looked at myself, even as a kid, as a business woman.”
They did become businesswomen at the age of 6 when they found Dualstar Entertainment Group, which is home to their movies and their video collections. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen achieved success with their couture line, The Row, and their retial brand, Elizabeth and James, Olsenboye, and StyleMint. The twins also released a successful fragrance that’s inspired by their individual style.
