The famous twins decided to let the world in on their usually ‘discreet’ lives during a rare new interview! Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen chatted with i-D and revealed why they prefer to stay out of the limelight as adults after their successful acting careers as kids.
They also spoke about their luxury fashion brand, The Row, and explained why they chose not to be the face of the brand!

After all, it’s theirs and it’s been theirs for a decade and a half since The Row just celebrated its 15th anniversary!
Mary-Kate said that “we were raised to be discreet people.”
The ladies don’t use social media at all and even shop online for free.

Moreover, we can safely say that interviews are a bit difficult for them as it has been a long time.
About their names being linked to the fashion house, Ashely said: ‘We really didn’t want to be in front of it. We didn’t necessarily want people to know it was us, in a way. It was one of those things about the product, to the point where we think, ‘Who can we get for this so we don’t have to do it?’ I think to this day you will see that we really put the product first.”
In fact, The Row was apparently born out of their desire to make something for themselves and break away from their TV characters.
“We were only 18 and I think we knew we wanted to take the time to take a break from what we were doing before and explore things that interested us, and discover what life has to offer. ..’ Ashely continued as her twin sister finished her sentence: ‘…creative.’
