From Diaper Dandies to Dominating Divas: The Olsen Twins’ Early Career and Breakthrough

So there they were, two adorable twin babies in a little studio in Culver City. Stepping in front of the camera as the never-forgettable Michelle Tanner on the much-loved sitcom Full House. Without saying a word, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen became instant stars. They shared the screen with Jodie Sweetin, John Stamos, Lori Loughlin, and Bob Saget, among others, from 1987 to 1995, an ensemble cast that were the talk of ABC’s “TGIF” Friday night lineup of sitcoms. And they were a hit.

After turning the Tanners’ San Francisco house into their playground, these little geniuses started to make big moves. They used their surge in popularity to create a world of their own and Hollywood loved it! Starring in an array of unforgettable kid-to-teen movies, they transported us to dreamy destinations and fantastic adventures. Remember New York MinuteWhen in RomeHoliday in the Sun, and Passport to Paris? Those were the days.

Mary-Kate kept her acting shoes on for a bit longer, with her last significant role in the 2011 film Beastly. Ashley, though, was last causing a stir in 2004’s New York Minute. But, as they grew up, they started to switch gears. In true Olsen-twins style, they gracefully said goodbye to acting, keeping public appearances to a minimum and staying clear of brand endorsements. And what was their new gig? None other than the glamorous world of fashion.

Big Bucks from Small Screens: Olsen Twins’ Revenues from their Acting Career

The Olsen twins started off as tiny tots on Full House, bagging $2,400 an episode when they began. But then their adorable portrayal of Michelle Tanner got everyone hooked and you won’t believe it, but they were soon making an insane $25,000 an episode. And as the show became the nation’s guilty pleasure, their paycheck ballooned to an insane $80K an episode.

But the sitcom? It was just their launching pad. They took their acting skills and the insane fame they scored and flipped it into the film business by starting their own company, Dualstar Productions. They were just 6 when they founded it. That’s where films like New York Minute and Passport to Paris (Y2K gems, amirite?) came from. And boy, did that make them rich.

But these girls? They’re more than just pretty faces on camera. When they turned 18, they took over the company to run the show as joint-CEOs and presidents. Under their rock-star leadership, their merchandise hit over 3,000 stores in the U.S. and a staggering 5,300 stores globally.

Diversified Divas: The Olsen Twins’ Impressive Revenues Outside Acting

The Olsen twins, our favorite childhood actresses, are now mega-rich because of their moves in the fashion world. They didn’t just rely on their acting careers. In 2006, Mary-Kate and Ashley burst onto the fashion scene with the launch of their cool brand, The Row.

The brand stands for luxury, indulgences with prices that reflect that: $1,400 pants and $7,000 totes, that brings in $100 million–$200 million in sales each year. It’s sold in over 200 stores across 80 countries, so their fashion-forward passion is spreading globally.

They sure didn’t stop at that. Other brands from their fashion stable include Elizabeth & James at Kohl’s. Named after their siblings, this pocket-friendly line pulls in a solid $89 million each year. Don’t forget Olsenboye and StyleMint—two more labels that add substantial dough to their bank accounts.

Lavish Lifestyles: The Olsen Twins’ Possessions

The Olsen twins deal in luxury, but they live in luxury, too. Together, the twins snagged an apartment in New York’s West Village in 2010 and later flipped it for $7.7 million. They then secured their own spaces. Ashley’s pad, nestled in the heart of Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, is one cute loft. This place sticks out when compared to other breathtaking NYC pads. One peek inside and you’re smack dab in the middle of style and glam, complete with chevron walnut flooring, French handblown glass doors, and the coziest wood-burning fireplace. This place reflects Ashley’s fabulous taste and class.

Mary-Kate had a killer 8,700-square-foot Regency-style home in New York. The mega-estate was a part of her and her husband’s sweet collection of properties until things went down with her divorce. They had lined it up for renovation, and moved into a property nearby to accommodate the architect. But their marriage fizzled before work was complete. They didn’t even get a chance to live in the space. Consequently, this masterpiece hit the market for $11.5 million.

Behind the Spotlight: A Glimpse into the Olsen Twins’ Personal Lives

The Olsen twins were born in Los Angeles (specifically, Sherman Oaks) back in ’86 to Jarnie and Dave Olsen. Dad was into real estate, while Mum was a personal manager, but they called it quits before the girls hit their teens. Besides being each other’s other halves, they have an older brother, Trent, and younger sister, Elizabeth (a.k.a. The Scarlet Witch from your Marvel movie marathons). Dad sprouted a second family later on, so they’ve also got some half-siblings in the mix.

Our girls aren’t just about the glitz and glam; they realized that, in order to succeed, they needed a quality education. They attended L.A.’s Campbell Hall School. Upon graduating in 2004 they decided to crank up the academics at NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study at NYU. That combo of book smarts and showbiz savvy? It has fueled their fashion domination.

As for the love department, well, they’ve had their fair share of headlines. Mary-Kate got hitched to Olivier Sarkozy, half-brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy. Though married for five years, the pair got a divorce in 2020. Ashley isn’t shy of an intriguing romance either, having been linked to some pretty big names—remember Justin Bartha?

Despite the constant tabloid temptation, the Olsen twins have played it cool, managing to keep their personal lives just that – personal. Maybe that’s part of their charm? They’ve managed to carve out their own world that’s leagues away from their Full House days, with education and creativity at its heart.

Twists and Turns: Major Events in the Olsen Twins’ Journey

In 2004 Ashley Olsen sued the National Enquirer for $40 million for pretty much implicating her in a drug scandal! The case, however, was dismissed by a Los Angeles federal court later that year.

Then in 2015, their company, Dualstar Entertainment, got slapped with a class-action lawsuit. Around 40 interns, both past and present, accused the twins of not paying them for their work. Classic intern beef; they claimed they were doing the same work as paid employees with no perks. But the company shook off these accusations, calling them “pointless.”

They’ve even had to deal with health scares. In 2004, Ashley went to rehab for anorexia nervosa. After that bombshell, a “Got Milk?” ad with both twins was pulled.

The Olsen twins’ story is totally one for the books. These girls have faced hard times but they’ve always come out on top. Their name is now a brand – a symbol of endurance, style, and pure grit. They’ve won our hearts on screen and have built a kick-ass fashion empire. They really have left their mark on the world, making their old Full House catchphrase still relevant, “You got it, dude!”
