Because they are often the source of tabloid headlines, Mary-Kate and Ashley say people may think they know them—but they really don't. For starters, every day isn't a fashion show in the Olsens' world. "I wear tennis shoes to the office every day with sweatpants," Ashley says. "I really like to be comfortable in what I'm doing." And just because a snapshot of the girls out shopping or sipping coffee makes the papers, it doesn't mean they're not working. "It's the only time they get a shot, because if we're going to work, they think we're shopping [because] we have samples or shopping bags," Mary-Kate says.
Even though the paparazzi make it difficult to have a private life, the twins aren't complaining. "I don't regret anything that we've done or any choices that we've made or the people around us have made for us," Ashley says.
