If you loved the popular TV sitcom Full House, then you should know TV star Mary Kate Olsen as Michelle Tanner, the youngest member of the Tanner family. But apart from this unique show, the star has achieved much more.
In 2012, the former child star moved into the fashion business. She is now half of the big fashion franchise known as The Olsen Twins. Her collection is famous for its timelessness, minimalism and perfect fit. Currently, the fashion mogul and her twin sister have entered different lines of business and are not afraid to add new collections to their fashion mix with the latest Being Menswear line.
Mary-Kate Olsen’s Bio (age)
The petite TV star was born on 13 June 1986 in Sherman Oaks, California. She is of white origin and Norwegian descent on her father’s side. Her religion is Anglican/Episcopalian.
The cute blonde was educated at Campbell Hall School in Los Angeles, where she was accepted into an equestrian team because of her love of riding. She continued her education at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University.
Mary-Kate Olsen comes from a relatively large family. Her mother, Jarnette, worked as a personal manager, while her father, David Olsen, is a real estate developer and agent. The two went separate ways when Mary was young. She has three siblings; her twin sister Ashley Olsen, an older brother named Trent and a younger sister named Elizabeth. From her father’s second marriage she has two half-brothers and sisters named Taylor and Jake.
Her sister Elizabeth followed in her footsteps. She became a Hollywood superstar after her big breakthrough in 2011 when she played in the drama Martha Marcy May Marlene, for which she received several award nominations. Her twin sister Ashley is also well-known in the film industry. Both started playing as infants – only one year after their birth. Their first acting activity was the joint role of Michelle Tanner in the TV sitcom Full House, which was broadcast from 1987-1995.
After that, they played together in many other successful movies. Inspired by their early experiences with costume adaptation as actors, the two founded their fashion label The Row in 2006. In 2012 they gave up acting from their portfolio to focus on their fashion business. Their clothing empire, The Row, which places great emphasis on detail and fit, now includes a men’s collection that the duo recently launched.
Her passion for fashion has also led her to not resume her role in Fuller House, a spin-off from Full House in 2015. The twins’ net worth is estimated at $300 million. They were named 30 under 30 among the Forbes: All-Star Alumni List in 2017.
Husband and children, is Mary-Kate Olsen married?
Mary-Kate Olsen is married to the half-brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Her husband’s name is Oliver Sarkozy. The two were married for three years before they will walk to the altar in 2015. It was a low-key ceremony, with 50 of their closest family members and friends being entertained.
At the height of their relationship, Oliver, who was deeply in love with his wife, wanted to marry her as soon as possible. Mary-Kate, however, did not want to rush into anything but agreed to live with her admirer in a $13.5 million Manhattan townhouse, which both took advantage of. The house offered a rooftop swimming pool, a working elevator, a private garden with a fountain, an artist’s studio and a hall of mirrors.
Oliver Sarkozy is a French investment banker. He was born on 26 May 1969, which means he is 17 years older than Mary-Kate. The large age difference does not affect their relationship in any way. In fact, their relationship is filled with affection, happiness, and success. They have no children yet.
The French financier has an M.A. in Medieval History from the University of St Andrews. He is the CEO and co-head of The Carlyle Group, a global financial services company that manages over $150 billion. His contributions to the financial company have earned him an estimated $60 million in assets. Oliver’s marriage to Mary-Kate Olsen is not his first, he was married to Charlotte Bernard for 14 years. The man separated from the wife in 2010 after they had two children.
