Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen turned a tween-twin-entertainment empire into a very-adult-lady-fashion empire (opens in new tab), and they did it without joining a single social media platform (opens in new tab).
For those of us who were members of their official fan club back in the day (#noregrets), not being able to connect with the Olsens and follow their every circa-2017 thought is admittedly rough. But we've accepted it.
The Olsens are notoriously private, especially when it comes to their personal lives, but in a new interview with Net-A-Porter's The Edit (opens in new tab), Mary-Kate opened up just a little about married life with her 47-year-old French banker husband (opens in new tab) Olivier Sarkozy—who she married back in 2015 after three years of dating.
"I have a husband [Sarkozy], two step-kids and a life; I have to go home and cook dinner. I ride horses on the weekends," she said of how her home life keeps her grounded. "You find the thing that helps you relax and if you don't have it, you have to look for it. Or you get burned out and then you're not productive."
Write that down—it's "run an empire" level life wisdom.
