It seems a lifetime ago that Mary Kate and Ashley Olson stole your hearts as the adorable and sassy Michelle Tanner on the beloved ’80s/’90s sitcom, ‘Full House.’
“The sister act went on to star in over ten films including ‘Double, Double, Toil, and Trouble,’ ‘It Takes Two,’ ‘Billboard Dad,’ ‘Passport to Paris,’ and ‘Holiday in the Sun.’
“In the midst of all movies, they had three major TV series once 'Full House' officially ended on the ABC network.”
Since then, time has marched on, and the twins, like the rest of us have aged. On June 13th, the dynamic duo turned 33, and fans are not being kind with remarks about recent photos of the pair.
As the rest of us are shaking our heads, asking, “How can this be possible?” Some Twitter users are speaking out with their impressions of how well, or not, the girls have aged.
When Mary Kate and Ashley gave up the glitz and glitter of a wildly successful Hollywood acting career, they did not stay out of the limelight for long.
In 2006, the twins formed a highly successful fashion company called ‘The Row’ and they haven’t looked back since.
In 2016, Netflix announced that they were reviving the beloved sitcom starring the Tanners, and were hoping to get all the original stars to participate. But, when ‘Fuller House’ debuted in February of that year, the Olsens were conspicuously absent.
The girls reportedly had no interest in returning to the small screen and, despite impassioned appeals from various cast members, they adamantly refused to join the cast.
Instead, Mary Kate and Ashley are spending their time making their fashion business even more successful, and are doing in outside the public eye, eschewing social media and keeping their private lives private.
Fans who grew up with Michelle will always have a soft spot for the lovable twins who grew up before our very eyes. But, some of them have
Creators of the ‘Full House’ revival reportedly wanted the Olsen twins to return and have reveled in staying out of the limelight.
“The Olson twins aged horribly”
“The Olson twins look like they in their 70s”
“I think the Olson twins don’t look too bad lol. They just need weight on them. It actually helps to have adipose tissue in the face. It really helps from looking old. Who knew having fat was actually ok! 🤣”
“I’m gonna be pissed if I look like the Olson twins at 33”
“Twitter just told me that Mary-Kate and Ashley turn 33 today. I’m simultaneously surprised they’re that old and that young. They look like the haunting apparitions of teen governesses who died mysteriously in 1848”
In spite of the unkind comments, there are still the die-hard fans who simply want to wish the girls a Happy Birthday.
"Happy Birthday Mary-Kate and Ashley!!"
"Happy Birthday to Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Who are both 33 years old today. They were a huge part of my childhood growing up 🎂🎉"
“We have that can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars over the fence, world series kind of love for these two. Happy birthday to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen! “
