Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen: We Never "Felt Like We Were Actresses"

Actresses-turned-designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen say they never really felt like actresses, even from a very young age. They believe that they took a business approach to everything which is similar to how they now treat their fashion design empire. Mary-Kate comments that acting wasn't particularly the focus for them: 

 “With what we were doing in business when we were younger, I don’t think it ever felt like we were actresses — because we spent so much more of our time not in front of the cameras, building a brand." 

Ashley adds that she is so glad she has someone she feels close to when it comes to approaching business because they both have their own angles: 

 “We feel so fortunate to have each other, to have a dialogue, communication is key; it’s the most important thing in life. And Mary-Kate and I get to communicate all day long, on all sorts of subjects. It gets us to a more educated, thoughtful place, because we often come to things from different directions — although we want to get to the same space and have the same goal and vision. But that conversation is what gets us there.”
