Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen turned 26 yesterday and won the CFDA Womenswear designer of the year award last week. Elizabeth Olsen’s film Red Lights is out in cinemas from tomorrow. In other words – the heat is on. We decided to pit the burgeoning thespians-cum-partygal sisters against each other (time on our hands? Us?). Contenders, ready…
Mary-Kate & Ashley:
CFDA Womenswear designer of the year
Ashley and Mary-Kate have come a long way since their soapy, Saturday morning TV days – winning a CFDA award a week before their 26th birthday. 1-0?
Two of a Kind
At 12-years old the infamous twins had their first TV show; it only ran for two seasons, though…
(3) Full House
In their first TV appearance, the twins both played Michelle Tanner, featuring in over 190 episodes.
Mary-Kate and Ashley expanded their fashion guise to the Internet with their involvement in the StyleMint website.
Only taking 15 days to film, Elizabeth proved her talent through carrying the emotions of this story in such a short space of time.
Martha Marcy May Marlene
Said to have gotten the lead part in this film without even auditioning, this was only her second lead film role.
Out tomorrow, Red Lights is the first film Elizabeth has undertaken with big Hollywood names. Robert DeNiro, Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy star alongside her.
