You probably remember them from ''FullHouse''. Or maybe it was the straight-to-{{VHS}} mystery movies? Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been the top earning stars under the age of 21 from the early 90's to the mid 2000s. They earned $40 million in 2006 even though they hadn't acted in anything. The girls do quite well living off their royalties, and were more famous for dating people, talking to debutantes (Creator/ParisHilton) and having anorexia scandals (Mary Kate) in the tabloids. (in 2003-2006).

They were the original famous twins, and [[Series/TheVeronicas their]] [[Series/SisterSister concept]] [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody stuck]].

They have asked to be called Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, since they have grown up. Their success has been marked on Forbes The Celebrity 100 list since 2002, and in 2007 Forbes ranked the twins as the eleventh-richest women in entertainment, with an estimated net worth of $100 million.

For their years post teen-star status, Mary Kate took on acting in such movies as ''Literature/{{Beastly}}'' and ''The Wackness''. She's also had a multi episode stint on the show ''Weeds'' and guest starred on ''Samantha Who?''. Mary-Kate has her own line with Jane Belfry and Fred Holston. The line is currently in development. Their production company, Dualstar Productions, bankrolled a 2007 adaptation of ''Literature/ThePrinceAndThePauper'' starring Dylan and Cole Sprouse.

Ashley is currently focusing on their clothing lines. "The Row", "Elizabeth And James" and "Olsenboyne"

In Fall 2008, the girls wrote a book called "Influence" as ''a tribute to designers, artists and other industry creative individuals who inspired them.''

A little known fact is that they are technically NonIdenticalTwins, and are fraternal. One's face is slightly rounder than the other.

They are parodied in the WebOriginal ''WebVideo/VeryMaryKate''.

They have [[Creator/ElizabethOlsen a sister named Elizabeth]], also an actress, who made her cinematic debut in 2012's ''Film/MarthaMarcyMayMarlene''.
----
!!!MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen have appeared on these works:

* ''FullHouse'' (not [[MakingUseOfTheTwin (usually)]] on screen at the same time)
** They were credited as "Mary Kate Ashley Olsen", leading many to believe that the little girl was played by one actress.
* Two Of A Kind a short lived tv sitcom as pre teens.
* ''SoLittleTime'', a short-lived tween SitCom starring the two.
* ''{{Mary Kate and Ashley IN ACTION}}!'', a short-lived SaturdayMorningCartoon starring the twins as {{Ink Suit Actor}}s.
* ''SaturdayNightLive'' (guest hosted, at expense of their senior prom, in 2004)
* A plethora of mystery works for children (literature and videos)
* A plethora of party movies for children
* A plethora of DirectToVideo tween comedies
-----
!!!Some tropes used by their movies:

* WitnessProtection: ''Our Lips Are Sealed'' (the Australian one)
* ParentTrapPlot: A rip-off of ''TheParentTrap'' called ''It Takes Two''.
* TheDanza: Mary Kate and Ashley Burke in ''Two of a Kind''.
* RunawayBride: Their father in ''It Takes Two''. He was marrying the RichBitch, so it's okay!
----
!!!Some tropes used by their TV shows:

* AlphaBitch: Jennifer in ''Two of a Kind''.
* MissingMom: Both ''FullHouse'' and ''Series/TwoOfAKind'' have the Olsens playing the daughter(s) of a widowed father.
* TakeThat: "I Blame The Media" after getting caught making a mess in Larrypolooza in SoLittleTime.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: In ''Two of a Kind'', Ashley was presented as a very fashion-forward girl while Mary-Kate was a typical tomboy. This was the case in a lot of their movies too, Mary-Kate as the tomboy and Ashley as the girly-girl.
** PlayingAgainstType: ''Winning London'' inverted the two roles. This time Mary-Kate played serious bookworm Chloe while Ashley played outgoing LadEtte Riley.
* BettyAndVeronica: Everything that they've ever been in. Ashley's character might be interested in fashion and modeling or be the cool surfer chick but will always be the boy-crazy Veronica while Mary-Kate's character might be a serious student or serious athlete but always the down to earth one.
