It's funny how when people discuss the physical differences between the two, they point out how Mary-Kate is left-handed and Ashley is right-handed, which clearly does not help anyone in telling them apart (unless they're playing ring toss of course).

What they fail to mention is that the girls' eyes are completely different shapes — and Ashley's are much closer together than Mary-Kate's. Let's have a look, shall we?

Here's Ashley. Notice how round and closer together her eyes are?
