Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are no longer interested in making movies. Though they got their start on the family-friendly sitcom Full House in 1987 (and went on to start in a series of direct-to-video films), the 27-year-olds have decided to focus on expanding their fashion and beauty brands instead.
Ashley—who has not appeared on the big screen since 2004’s New York Minute—adds, “I always looked at myself, even as a kid, as a businesswoman.”
According to Mary-Kate, she and her sister were groomed to be behind-the-scenes from a young age. “With what we were doing in business when we were younger, I don’t think it ever felt like we were actresses, because we spent so much more of our time not in front of the cameras, building a brand.”
