They were millionaires before they even got to high school.
My obsession for the week? The Olsen twins! I actually just recently watched an interview of them stating that they don’t like to be called “The Olsen Twins” but it’s just a lot shorter than “Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen” so I will have to go against their wishes for the sake of this post.
I’ve watched many of their movies when I was younger. But during this Christmas break (which is basically me watching movies, movies, movies), I decided to re-watch some of my favorite Dualstar movies. And I fell in love with them all over again.
Mary Kate and Ashley made their television debut as Michelle Tanner in the hit television series “Full House” when they were just six months old. After the show, the twins established Dualstar, a company that contributed to many of their movies. Besides Dualstar, the twins also starred in various television shows and had their own individual projects.
If you haven’t watched an Olsen movie, I must warn you that most of them aren’t Oscar-award-winning material. In a nutshell, they may be cheesy, cliche, and very predictable. Also, they lean towards the chick-flick category. But, they are also very fun to watch and to be honest, the story lines aren’t that bad at all. There’s something about the twins that just make them so fun to watch. Such a shame that the girls decided to choose fashion over acting. I would’ve loved to see more movies from the two.
Now without further ado, here are some of my favorites! In no particular order:
1. It Takes Two
2. Billboard Dad
3. Passport to Paris
4. Holiday In The Sun
5. New York Minute
I just find it so amazing and inspiring how these girls became so mature and driven at such a young age. They’re billionaires now, millionaires before they turned eighteen, and it just stuns me how one can start being successful at such a young age. Makes me want to get my rear end off the couch and do something monumental. Or something that would make money. Because god knows how much we all need money.
