The Olsen Twins: Public perceptions and misconceptions
The latest issue of the Allure Magazine shows off the Olsen twins on two separate covers. Noticing from the cover of the magazine it is easily contemplated that both sisters are going ahead to spread their wings further by expressing each of their individual sides as we see Mary Kate in an all black slim fit dress while her sister, Ashley opted for the opposite, a crisp white shirt.
In a recent chat with them, the famous twins who have been in the fame game for 20 years now talked about the misconceptions that people have about them. Here’s what they said:
“I think people looked at us with the perception of ‘Oh, you just have everything. You can do whatever,” Mary-Kate says. “[Strangers assumed we] had enough money to just do nothing —or why would we go to college? And it’s such an uneducated perspective! You still have to grow within business. You have to take a chance.”
The Olsen twins argue that acting isn’t their primary goal, “felt like we were actresses” they said, adding “We still feel welcome in the industry. But it’s not the one we’re in.”
Though they are going through a change in the industry, their bond still remains concrete, or as they put it, “Beyond words. We both carry the weight of each other.”
