Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen open up about their special bond and decision to abandon acting in the new Allure.

The famous twins each posed for a cover image, and discussed their business empire and life in the spotlight.

With regard to a question they’re always asked, Mary-Kate says, “‘How involved are you?’ It’s not like you wake up one day and have a huge company with four or five different companies within the companies.”

Their involvement with their fashion lines meant giving up the acting careers that made them famous.

“I was reading scripts, and ultimately I just said to the people who are representing me, ‘I need to do things 100 percent. I don’t feel like I can give you 100 percent of my time,’” explains Ashley. “There’s a lot of compromise in the entertainment industry.”

Mary-Kate ended her own on-screen career after some “Weeds” appearances and a 2008 movie. CLICK HERE for the full story!
