Mary-Kate Olsen Net Worth, Biography & Wiki 2017

Mary-Kate Olsen is one of Olsen twin sisters, and as with her twin Ashley Olsen, Mary Kate Olsen is best known as an amazing actress. Besides that, Mary Olsen also works as a television producer, fashion designer, film producer, author as well as running a business. Mary Kate has a net worth of $150 million – mainly earned thanks to her acting, movie producing and excellent taste in fashion designing. Mary-Kate Olsen was born in 1986 in the United States. Both Olsen sisters appeared on the screen when they were only 9 months old: they got the first role of Michelle Tanner In “Full House” and started their acting careers.

Mary-Kate Olsen Net Worth $150 Million

Interestingly, the two girls played the same role – child labour laws in United States were strict and wouldn’t let one girl work on stage as much as it was needed. That’s why movie producers found a smart way to circumvent this rule and took two similar girls. The sitcom “Full House” became extremely famous and created the perfect opportunity for Mary-Kate Olsen and her sister to show their acting talent. Although both of the sisters appeared in such movies as “To Grandmother’s House We Go” (1992), “Doube, Double, Toil and Trouble” (1993) and “How the West Was Fun” (1994), Mary-Kate Olsen pursued her acting career only until 2012, and then decided to focus on her career as a fashion designer. But it didn’t have such a big influence on Mary-Kate’s capital – in 2011 Olsen sisters were ranked as the 11st richest women in entertainment with a net worth of almost $100 million. Today her financial position has risen, and now Mary-Kate’s net worth is $150 million dollar, which makes her one of the richer woman in entertainment.

Twin sisters bought a beautiful penthouse in New York when they decided to move from Los Angeles. This building was supposed to be Olsens dormitory, but they actually never moved in there. Also Mary-Kate Olsen has got two cars. The first car she seems to have is Black Porsche Cayenne Turbo, and the second one is Porsche 911 Carrera. Actress was noticed driving this car when she was visiting nail salon.

One of the main ways to increase her net worth for Mary-Kate and her twin sister today is creating their own clothing lines suitable for everyone such as “Elizabeth and James”, “Olsenboye”, “The Row” and “StyleMinth”. Moreover, later Mary-Kate Olsen decided to try herself in handling a cake shop called Sweet Lady Jane and even tried to create a few cake recipes by herself. Both of twins already proved they can easily handle business, so it is needless to say her new project most likely will be as successful as all the previous ones. And if many show business and entertainment stars spend their money on expensive cars, mansions and private jets, it looks like Mary-Kate Olsen is full of resolution to invest her money and earn more.

Quotes

#Quote
1Now 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.
2We 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.
3I'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.
4Our 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.
5I wear weird things sometimes. I like to drink coffee. Neither of those things have anything to do with who I am.
6Australia 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.
7Any time that we have time to take off, we love being home.
8How can you be organized when you're in Times Square?
9I 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.
10I 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.
11We have been roommates our entire lives. We just bought a place together.
12We get along really well, but TV and film aren't reality. We're best friends, but we do have our fights!
13I am a really bad test taker. I can get straight As in school, but I get nervous on test.
14I 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.
15I 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.
16Me and Ashley feel like we're totally different.
