Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Give Rare TV Interview, Play Twin Trivia on ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ (Video)

April 25, 2014

Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen made a rare television appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The former child stars turned fashion moguls talked about a range of topics including their ‘Full House’ days and they also played a game of twin trivia.

The 27-year-old Olsen twins are rarely seen on television these days and thus their joint appearance on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ has generated quite a buzz. If it seems like a long while, it’s because it has been. They have been far away from the glare of television cameras since embarking upon their highly successful fashion empire, Elizabeth and James as well as The Row. They last sat for a joint interview around four years ago for none other than Ellen DeGeneres. Now years later, they gave the eponymous host the honor of their return to television.

Ostensibly they were on the show to promote their new fragrances, Elizabeth and James Nirvana White and Nirvana Black. But of course there was so much more to talk about. So much catching up and reminiscing of the old days, the ‘Full House’ days in particular, for their portrayal of Michelle Tanner which first brought them to fame back in the 1990s.

And as she is fond of doing, Ellen DeGeneres got her two guests to play a game quite appropriate to their lives and circumstances, “Mary-Kate or Ashley?” After all, what better opportunity to assert themselves as individuals Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen — as so often in the past, and even to this day, they are referred to and thought of as just “The Olsen Twins.” Questions ranged from who is the better dancer to who was the first to be kissed.

Mary Kate Olsen has drawn some notice recently for her engagement to Olivier Sarkozy and while it was clear to the close observer that she was wearing her engagement ring, she did not make any mention of it.

All in all a spirited and lively appearance on the show almost four years later. The replay video is below!
