Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s Most Curious Twinning Behaviors

There was a brief and dark moment when Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen shunned their title of “The Olsen Twins,” as if they were simply siblings instead of two halves of the same whole. Kids, if Mary-Kate and Ashley were just straight up sisters, they would be … well, they would be Elizabeth Olsen.

And through the years, we’ve started to take note that they even have their own strange mirrored behaviors and movements that are distinctly Olsen-esque. From their balancing act to their “secret language,” scroll through the gallery to see some of Mary-Kate and Ashley’s most intriguing twin quirks.
