Back in the ’90s and early aughts, Mary-Kate
and Ashley Olsen were the world’s biggest young “It” girls. After starring in Full House for eight seasons,
they built an empire of straight-to-VHS movies, video games, and toys. But their reign over pop culture came to an
end just as they were becoming adults. And it seems unlikely that these two will
ever grace the small screen again. Here’s why. End of an era First, a recap: For the better part of two
decades, Mary-Kate and Ashley were a package deal. Following Full House, the twins starred in
ABC’s short-lived Two of a Kind, then moved their antics to ABC Family’s equally short-lived
So Little Time. The girls were growing up, but so was their
audience. And Mary-Kate and Ashley knew it. As Mary-Kate told Entertainment Weekly in
2007, their career at this stage wasn’t about acting, but rather about “entertaining a specific
audience.” But judging by the ratings of their Full House
follow-ups, that audience had moved on. The final big-screen project Mary-Kate and
Ashley worked on together, the 2004 movie New York Minute, was a commercial and critical
failure. Several critics noted the film’s casual racism
— particularly the choice to cast Conan O’Brien sidekick Andy Richter as a Chinese
man. So it wasn’t exactly a career high for the
twins, despite the cast giving it their all, including an out-of-place Eugene Levy as a
truant officer … Grown-up gigs Following her years portraying squeaky-clean,
family-friendly characters, Mary-Kate started to explore her darker side, playing grass-loving
20-somethings in Weeds and The Wackness, which featured a scene where she makes out with
Oscar-winning actor Ben Kingsley. But the move didn’t please everybody. Entertainment Weekly praised her attempt to
quote, “play it cool” in Weeds, but described her performance as “a bit stiff.” While Mary-Kate tried to navigate Hollywood
solo, sister Ashley had pretty much called it quits on her former career. When an offer came in the form of Netflix’s
Full House spin-off Fuller House, the blonde beauty turned it down. Regarding the twins’ absence from the series,
executive producer Bob Boyett told People, “Ashley said, ‘I have not been in front of
a camera since I was 17, and I don’t feel comfortable acting. Mary-Kate said, ‘It would have to be me because
Ash doesn’t want to do it.'” Fashion-focused After the twins said goodbye to acting, they
set their sights on an entirely different industry: fashion. Running both The Row and Elizabeth and James,
Mary-Kate and Ashley have made names for themselves as fashionistas to follow. “The design process usually starts through
conversation. It’s a collaboration.” The two were even honored with the award for
Accessories Designer of the Year at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards in
2014, cementing their place in fashion history. Given their demanding fashion careers, it’s
doubtful that Mary-Kate and Ashley have any time to spare for Tinseltown, if it’s even
on their radar anymore. Family first When she’s not running her clothing lines,
Mary-Kate spends her free time with her husband, banker Olivier Sarkozy, whom she married in
2015. And her new family certainly keeps her occupied
when she’s not working on new designs. Reflecting on how hectic her and her sister’s
professional lives have become, Mary-Kate told Net-a-Porter, “We don’t need so much time to sit and think
and ponder. But then I have a husband, two step-kids and
a life; I have to go home and cook dinner.” So even as ’90s revivalism rages on, placing
them in high demand on the small screen, the Olsen twins appear uninterested in returning
to the industry that made them household names, choosing instead to forge new identities as
fashion icons. Thanks for watching! Click the Nicki Swift icon to subscribe to

  1. The Olsens are ridiculously rich, educated and run a successful range of clothing and accessories. Why would they be interested in acting now?!

  2. They are so so so so si ugly they look so so Eric said they don't eat so yeah there are bulimic and nasty and gross looking so they're cute when they're on Full House they were cute when the age until what maybe 1415 before they start looking like they're like 50 or 40 I am older than them and if I never knew any better I thought they be like 40 in there like 40 years old they look disgusting they're nasty I don't care what happened to their childhood they have money you not need to look like that and I don't care what you people think I don't care of your fans of them and this and that and you're feeling bad for no I don't feel bad from they look gross

  3. Elizabeth Olsen is just way more talented than Olsen-twins. I'm looking forward watching her in more amazing roles.

  4. Its not that Hollywood won't work with them anymore, its that they won't work with Hollywood anymore.

  5. I just got done watching it takes 2. They were the cutest little girls. Its like you watch that and wish they could of stayed that young forever. But we all know the industry is full of satanic rituals, child abuse and molestation. These girls prob have very bad memories of being actresses. I pray God would open the eyes of everyone reading this. Satan runs this world. But jesus christ came to set us free. He already won on the cross. God bless everyone. Love you all

  6. This video is bad and you should feel bad.

    "Hollywood won't cast the Olsen Twins because they already had enough being taken advantage of by the industry while they were children so they've decided simply not to audition for anything anymore and run ther successful companies in peace." There.

  7. They were sacrificed into a world of hell since they were babies. My God I cannot imagine the horrors they suffered at the hands of those disgusting pedophiles, may they pay for such sins.Their innocence was violently taken away from them, and for that I pray for their souls and for so many other babies who's lives were controlled from the start, such deceit and evil throughout their lives. I pray that Jesus holds them close and delivers them from evil, it's never too late for anyone, I pray…

  8. I was today years old when I realized that Mary-Kate and Ashley are Elizabeth Olsen’s sisters. I am shoooooook

  9. I didn't know she was 29 when she married, that's practically 30. At that age, as long as she did it by free will, it wouldn't matter if the man was 60. The older they are, the less likely they'll cheat anyway

  10. They look sick. And they already said they haven't acted in awhile and don't want to. But truthfully they look like they have done drugs or an illness.

  11. @ :20 secs in the twins show a side view and I swear they look like boys in the foreheads !!!😱they have such male-ish features probly why they hide under all those layers.

  12. The Olson twins have gone from really cute to really creepy they both look sick like they have been dieting too long or something!!

  13. They where never girls!! They where boys at birth and the occult cut off there boy parts ! Not kidding !!! They cannot become with child !!! This has been the way of the power people since the start ! eunuch at birth are nothing new under the sun !!!   A sick practice but they do sing good and are good actors !!!

  14. False title! This vid has nothing to do with Hollywood casting the Olsen twins again, it does have to do with why the Olsen twins would not return to Hollywood and about there life. Big difference!

  15. What the HELLLLL he wasnt supposed to be chinese stupiiiiiddd he was adopted and he can just speak chinese LOLLLLL

  16. Why are people hating and judging the way they look?? If they wanna look like that let them, it's their life, their choice! Then same people who criticize them, go ahead and praise others for altering their bodies, being plastic, if they want to look like a whale, a hippo, a giraffe, a alien, a couch… etc etc. Talk about hypocrisy

  17. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are leaving the acting industry and then there's Elizabeth Olsen still as Scarlet Witch in the Avengers XD

  18. The 2 twins changed ALOT they don’t seem twins anymore! Personally I think bcuz of smoking because they smoke a lot

  19. They might have money, be clothes designers, but they look horrible. Their image definitely declined. I don’t even know which one looks sicker. I don’t know why people think they should be walking skeletons. That’s horrible.

  20. After Full House, the twins kept acting despite personal struggles, audiences weren't feeling them so they created their own fashion empire.

  21. Or maybe they didn't want to work in the same conditions that allowed them to get taken advantage of for YEARS. Give them a break and let them rest!!

  22. They look so sick now and I know I'm probably gonna get a lot of hat but they do and a lot of people have noticed. Some say its botox but most doctors agree it because they started smoking at a young age. Also anyone else find it creepy they married people so much older?

  23. Why didn’t they offer the role on Fuller House to their younger similar looking sister the third Olsen girl…the one in the super hero movies.
