The Olsen Twins Are Living The Most Bizarre Post-Child Star Lives Possible

After putting out a lengthy catalog of children's movies, the Olsen twins have remained out of the public eye for over a decade. The twins do not take part in reality television, they rarely do interviews, and they haven’t starred together in anything since 2004's New York Minute. Despite their reclusiveness, many people are still fascinated by the former child stars. What have the Olsen twins been up to all these years? 

As it turns out, there are a lot of things you didn't know about the Olsen twins. The identical siblings were only nine months old when they landed the part of Michelle Tanner on the family sitcom Full House. Now in their 30s, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen no longer look totally alike, and Mary-Kate has actually taken up smoking cigarettes. 

After spending their childhood in the spotlight, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen today want nothing more to do with show business, and even turned down a lucrative offer to appear in the Full House reboot. Just because the cameras have stopped rolling doesn't mean that the siblings' lives are any less interesting, and some of their more recent adventures could definitely inspire feature-length films.
