Ashley Olsen Biography
Ashley Olsen and her twin, Mary-Kate Olsen, were born in June of 1986 in Sherman Oaks, California, a suburb of Los Angeles. Her parents divorced in 1996. Olsen began her career at the tender age of 9 months when she and her twin were employed to work on the very popular television show Full House. During the late 1990’s, after the end of Full House, Olsen became a very popular figure among the preteen set and released a line a clothing, makeup, posters, fragrances, dolls, and books. Olsen and her sister also made some direct to video films. She starred in the video series The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley, the ABC family film So Little Time, and Two of a Kind. Olsen and her sister became household names and starred in a romantic comedy movie in 2004 called New York Minute. This was the last movie for the Olsens, who stated they were tired of acting.
The twins became co-presidents of their own company, DualStar Entertainment Group, in 2004. Olsen launched her own lucky fashion brands Elizabeth and James, The Row, and co-founded the more affordable lines of Olsenboye and StyleMint with her sister. Olsen also released a celebrity interview book in 2008, making her a successful author as well. Olsen has been much praised for her business sense and works hard to provide decent working condition and maternity leave to the employees who work in her overseas factories. Olsen had an extensive line of clothing and other fashion items sold through Walmart but by 2006 she felt that this line of sales tarnished their reputation. They moved on to represent the upscale fashion line of Badgley Mischka.
Olsen and her sister are perhaps the richest and the most famous twins in the entertainment industry. She has often appeared on best-dressed lists and is seen at numerous fashion and red carpet events. Naturally thin, Olsen sued the tabloid magazine National Enquirer for stating that she was involved in drugs. She has a current net worth of $150 million and this impressive amount does not include her twin sister’s earnings.
