You probably think Mary-Kate and Ashley are so famous stars that you don't have anything in common. But you have even more in common than you could ever suppose!
"We do the same things as many other teens", says Mary-Kate. “We go to school, go shopping, meet friends, and have a rest. "
"Our friends and teacher communicate with us as with ordinary teens", agreed Ashley.
Girls go for a walk, wait for new films’ release and enjoy listening to music. They learn to play the piano but refuse to play football. They sometimes have failures at school and with boys. They like N'Sync's songs and go at concerts with friends.
Mary-Kate and Ashley were born on June 13, 1986 (Ashley is 2 minutes older). They grew at the suburb of Los-Angeles with their brother Trent; he is 2 years older and their sister Elizabeth. She is 3 years younger. Their parents are divorced and children had to divide for some time to be sometimes with mother and sometimes with father. Their father Dave is a broker. Their mother Jarnette performs with ballets in Los-Angeles.
"Trent is a typical elder brother", said Kate. “He helps us with homework, likes to be our observer and looks after us. But he teases us all the time! He draws very well and goes for sport. He plays football, baseball and basketball. And he also likes computer games very much".
"Lizzie is our younger sister. She does everything by herself and so she is very independent. She likes to act plays at school. And she began to learn actor's skill professionally".
Besides Mary-Kate and Ashley have small sister and brother from the second marriage of their father with Mackenzie Olsen. Tailor is 2 and a half years old and Jake is one and a half year old.
"It's great when there are small children because you can play with them", says Ashley. “We always help our father to look after children" They have their own fashion line, but what styles do they prefer?
"None", says Mary-Kate. “I like eclecticism when everything is mixed. " And Ashley says “I wear not only the latest fashion. Sometimes I put on things that were in vogue 2 years ago. The main thing is that my clothes should suit my mood at that moment".
They are often asked about their similarities and differences. How do people distinguish them?
"It's very simple", says Mary-Kate. “I have a little mole on my right cheek and Ashley has the same but on her chin. I'm a lefthander and Ashley is normal. "
