Mary-Kate Olsen: ‘I would never wish my upbringing on anyone…’

Mary-Kate-Olsen- - Mary-Kate Olsen: 'I would never wish my upbringing on anyone…'

Mary-Kate Olsen is featured in Marie Claire this month and she looks as stylish as ever in princess-like pink gowns, fur and sequins – but besides her fashiony ways, Mary-Kate also wants to share a deeper thought:

Outside of the spotlight, the 24-year-old bohemian star loves designing for her mix of labels – from The Row to her and Ashley’s lower-priced Olsenboye line for JCPenney – because “it’s kind of like a mask to hide behind.” In fact, Mary-Kate likens her and her sister to “little monkey performers” when referencing her childhood in front of the cameras: “I look at old photos of me, and I don’t feel connected to them at all… I would never wish my upbringing on anyone…”

Mary-Kate also opened up about the eating disorder she struggled with a few years ago:

And when the topics turn to her tabloid-plastered problems with an eating disorder (she entered treatment for one in 2004) and with a hard-partying lifestyle (including her time with the late Heath Ledger), she only says that she’s learned to seek help when she needs it: “I think it’s really important to be able to talk when something’s wrong. I learned at a really young age that if you don’t talk about it, it can drive you insane.”
