Me and Ashley feel like we`re totally different.
"I get extra time to take the test because of my ADD. Everybody`s brains works differently and I just need longer for things to register" - Upon taking her SATs
"I like to go to parties where I know everyone. How are you going to have fun with people you don`t know?" - On going to Hollywood parties
I am a really bad test taker. I can get straight As in school, but I get nervous on test.
We get along really well, but TV and film aren`t reality. We`re best friends, but we do have our fights!
We have been roommates our entire lives. We just bought a place together.
I learned how to play the drums. When we were in preproduction, when we were still in LA, I had a couple of drum lessons and then some in Toronto. I got the one beat down and that was it.
I usually do get the tomboy parts in the movies, which is kind of like me, but not totally. I like to shop as much as Ashley, but she is a little more of a girlie-girl than me.
Any time that we have time to take off, we love being home.
How can you be organized when you`re in Times Square?
Australia is so cool that it`s hard to even know where to start describing it. The beaches are beautiful; so is the weather. Not too crowded. Great food, great music, really nice people. It must be a lot like Los Angeles was many years ago.
wear weird things sometimes. I like to drink coffee. Neither of those things have anything to do with who I am.
Our relationship is stronger when we don`t live together, so we don`t live together. We`re separate people, and we have separate lives. But we see each other every single day.
I`m a person that has high highs and low lows. A lot of things make me sad. Sometimes it`s almost easier to be sad. But you do end up finding a balance and I think that as I get older I am learning what I can do for myself to make me happy.
We have been trying to teach the media that it`s `Mary-Kate` and `Ashley` Olsen since we were 12 years old. I guess... I guess you just learn to accept it.
Now that I`m older I`m more aware of things that make me feel more complete as a person. I`m trying to concentrate on those things as opposed to things that make me feel empty.
I learned how to play the drums. When we were in pre-production, when we were still in LA, I had a couple of drum lessons and then some in Toronto. I got the one beat down and that was it.
We did many of our own stunts. We had our hands full. In fact, the roles were physically demanding.
If they`re going to write a story they`re going to write the story whether it`s true or not.
We were never thrown into the situation in the middle of our lives, but grew up doing it. This is all we know, and some people who were thrown into it don`t really know what to do or how to react and this is just kind of natural for us.
The press has been good, but we try to stay out of the public eye when we are not working. And we do not really like to talk about our personal lives.
Our career is a dream. I mean, we get to act, travel around the world, and meet cool people. What`s not to love!
I think we have the same goals in mind. We are not planning on just all of a sudden taking a film and separating. Hopefully one day she can direct me in something, or I will direct her. Or we`ll produce a movie under our company`s name.
Our ultimate goal is to stay in business. We are not here with a specific plan. That`s kind of how our entire career has evolved. We will figure things out as we go along.
We will probably always be in business together.
I want to go to culinary school because I love cooking. One day I`d love to open up a restaurant or cafe.
I like to go to parties where I know everyone. How are you going to have fun with people you don`t know?
We`ve read scripts, and I think right now we are just focusing in on school.
We were always surrounded by people who knew us very well and cared about us.
We kinda look at this as the second or third chapter of our lives. After college, most people figure out what they want to do with their lives. But we already know what we want to do in the future and that is to continue to further our business goals.
The best part was the food. There are some great Italian restaurants we go to whenever we are in Toronto, so the eating was a definite highlight.
Just as we have had great working lives, we have also had good personal lives. For instance, we have made school our number one priority. We have been in school our entire lives with kids our own age. We guess that`s pretty regular.
I love to play games. I really like football, and I also like to ride horses.
We played soccer a lot with our friends and at school. We weren`t on an official team or anything, but we`d definitely be up for it in gym or in after-school pickup games where we live.
We`ve played producers almost our entire lives in everything else we`ve created. But when working on a feature and even dealing with something like Warner Bros. or another production company, or other details that you can worry about - we definitely learned a lot.
We had to decide: Do we want to do Saturday Night or go to our Senior Prom? We opted for Saturday Night Live.
I think one day I want to be on the other side of the camera-maybe directing.
I get extra time to take the test because of my ADD. Everybody`s brains works differently and I just need longer for things to register.
We`ve always been fans of a good mystery; we think all kids are, and there weren`t any good mysteries out there these days for kids, so that`s why we decided to do them.
(when asked if people tease her and Ashley about their childhood career) I think it's more that they feel sorry for us...because it's kind of bittersweet. I mean, we were like little monkey performers, you know? I look at old photos of me, and I don't feel connected to them at all. It doesn't feel like me. It feels like a role that I played. I would never wish my upbringing upon anyone...but I wouldn't take it back for the world. (tv.com)
(in 2010 about her and her twin sister) We're like two little young old women who have been through a lot. We're turning 24 on Sunday, and I said to Ash, "Can you believe we're turning 48?" We've been working since we were nine months old. That's the way we feel. (tv.com)
(on New York Minute) I learned how to play the drums! When we were in pre-production, when we were still in LA, I had a couple of drum lessons and then some in Toronto. I got the one beat down and that was it. (tv.com)
(about taking her SATs) I get extra time to take the test because of my ADHD. Everybody's brains work differently and I just need longer for things to register. (tv.com)
When we were kids, the work we did wasn't about acting. It was about pleasing people and making kids smile. (tv.com)
I think we've been labelled as role models since we were very young. My sister and I don't look at ourselves as role models - I think that's a huge responsibility. The best we can do is take care of ourselves and experience life for ourselves and not really let the outside world affect us (tv.com)
I run around my house naked with heels all the time. It's so funny. All my friends will tell you I love running around in kimonos and jewelry, or naked with jewelry. (tv.com)
(revealing she is too self-conscious to wear a bikini) I would love to be able to swim in the ocean in Malibu. But that is asking for a bikini shot. That's inviting something that I don't want to happen. I don't need to be on a 'Who's Skinny, Who's Fat, Who's Looking Healthy, Who's Not Eating?' list. I don't want my picture taken. The only time I think it's OK is at a red-carpet event or a photo shoot. So every time I see paparazzi, I cover my face so they don't get a picture, and I'm just 'the mean person who doesn't smile.'

When Ash and I are at a premiere and they're taking photos of us, she squeezes my hand 3 times to say 'I love you' and I squeeze her hand back 4 times to say 'I love you too!' (tv.com)
