Mary Kate Olsen Dishes on Married Life with Olivier Sarkozy

Fashion mogul Mary-Kate Olsen is opening up about her marriage.

In a new interview with Net-A-Porter’s The Edit, Olsen shared about her busy life, "I have a husband [Olivier Sarkozy], two step-kids and a life; I have to go home and cook dinner. I ride horses on the weekends. 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.”

In November 2015, Mary-Kate and Olivier tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in NYC.

Aside from Olivier, another important person in Mary-Kate's life is her twin sister and fashion partner Ashley, who also joined the interview. The two have managed to transition from well-known child actors to famed fashion designers. Mary shared, "When we were younger, being in the public eye was almost part of our role and responsibility — to set the trends at that time or be ahead of fashion. We would take adult clothing and cut it down to our size, change the proportions. I think from a young age we understood fit in a very different way because we’re so petite."

Nowadays, social media has become a big trend in society, but the twins are not taking part in it. Ashley explained, "Because we don’t dive into that whole world [of social media] and we don’t have Facebook, we’ve never been connected to our fans in that way. We’ve stayed quite sheltered in that sense.”

Despite their decision to stay away from social media, they hope to connect to fans through their clothes. Mary-Kate went on to say, "We just want to help women feel however they want to feel. Every once in a while, we want to change our perfume or our haircut; we want to wear heels or flats. We just like to switch it up. That’s the beauty of clothes.”
