Shocking isn’t it? I found it this so interesting because all my life, because of their extremely similar looks, I just assumed that they are identical twins when in reality, they are fraternal twins. Now you must be thinking that with their striking resemblance, I’m crazy to be saying that they aren’t identical. Well, let’s get into bio here. Two babies are identical twins when they come from the one single egg of the mother dividing into 2 and this is why most of the times the identical twins look the same. Identical twins aren’t named because of the same features but because such kind of twins shares the same DNA while fraternal twins are from two separate eggs and they don’t share the same DNA. See? Hence, the twins aren’t identical.

2. The twin sisters describe their relationship and bond as a 32 year marriage

In a recent interview to a magazine, Ashley Olsen described her relationship with her sister as a 32 year old partnership where they had their ups and downs. The girls have however tried to keep their lives extremely private and do not like to talk about themselves publicly. Ashley and Mary-Kate cofounded their luxury clothing line known as The Row and later ended up introducing Elizabeth and James, a clothing line which was mid-level priced and hence affordable by most. Both the girls have had a sense in fashion and they even disclosed that they have never bought anything online. While starting their clothing line ‘The Row’, the initial inspiration was a T-shirt. They wanted to design a t-shirt that could be perfect for women of all ages and all sizes. They have even had debates and quarrels regarding their designs for example, in an interview Mary-Kate confessed that they once spent around 6 months debating where to put the handles of their Margaux bag; whether on the inside or outside the bag. Finally they asked the employees in their office to vote on the matter but ultimately ended up producing it both ways. However despite these little debates, the girls have always been a support for each other.

One of the interesting facts that people don’t know about the twins is that during the filming of Full House, the twins used to wear fake teeth! The reason being that both girls were playing the same character of Michelle Tanner and in reality, their bodies were going through hazards of growing up and changing differently from each other. Their baby teeth were falling and the audience would’ve easily figured out that big of a difference. So, to maintain a constant look, the genius production team came out with the fake teeth idea and it worked!
