American fashion designer, former actress and producer. She and her fraternal twin Ashley have starred in many TV programs and movies beginning at an early age. When the twins were four months old, a close family friend persuaded their mother to take the babies to an audition for a TV sitcom. Reportedly they were the only babies who didn't cry during the audition and they landed the part of Michelle Tanner on a new hit series, "Full House." At nine months of age, they shared that role from the show's debut in 1987 until its cancellation eight seasons later in 1995. During that time, the twins were such a hit that books, dolls and other merchandise bearing their name proliferated. They twins, with their parents' guidance, formed a company when they were six, Dualstar Entertainment, specifically to handle the business side of their fame, which has grown to include videos and movies, books, clothing and fashion accessories.

In 1995, at age 9, the twins made their first feature film, "It Takes Two," for which they were paid $1.6 million. In 2001, Dualstar Entertainment earned $500 million and in 2002 around $1 billion. Although their parents divorced in 1993, and their father remarried, both parents remained close to their girls, making sure that they remained level-headed about their fame and finances. In 2004, as teenagers, the twins released a major motion picture called "New York Minute." That same year, the teen moguls were accepted to the class of 2008 at New York University's Gallatin Program for Individualized study. On June 22, 2004 news broke that a week or two prior, Mary-Kate had entered a clinic for treatment of an eating disorder that she had been battling for some time. Her twin Ashley cancelled their tour to Australia and New Zealand to be with her sister.

Although the twins look alike and are quite close, they have different personalities and interests. Both girls are fashion mavens but Mary-Kate is reportedly funkier in her tastes, Ashley more classic. Mary-Kate's academic strength is writing; Ashley's is math. Ashley plans to study psychology in college while Mary-Kate's interests are photography and culinary arts. Mary-Kate is left-handed while her twin is right-handed. Neither wants to be known as a teen "role-model." Ashley has been in a long-distance relationship with Columbia University quarterback Matt Kaplan, age 20, for the past three years. Mary-Kate's current beau is Boston University senior David Katzenberg, age 21, son of DreamWorks studio co-founder Jeffery Katzenberg. The young women are looking forward to sharing an apartment in New York as they begin their college studies.

Mary Kate left her rehab center at the end of July. In early September after starting at New York University, she broke up with David Katzenberg.

In May 2012, Olsen began a relationship with Olivier Sarkozy, half-brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy. In March 2014, photos were published showing Olsen wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring. Olsen and Sarkozy were married on November 27, 2015, at a private residence in New York City. On April 17, 2020, Olsen filed for divorce from Sarkozy. On May 13, she filed an emergency order to proceed despite delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On May 14, the emergency order was denied. In January 2021, the divorce was finalized.
