Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are opening up.

The famous twins, now 35, have lived in the spotlight since they starred in “Full House” as toddlers. Since then, they’ve slipped out of Hollywood and into the realm of fashion, but they’ve also done their best to avoid speaking publicly.

The duo recently offered up a rare interview to i-D magazine meant to coincide with the 15th anniversary of their fashion brand, The Row.

“We were raised to be discreet people,” Mary-Kate said when asked about her brand’s modest designs.

“I think that potentially that’s just our aesthetic, our design preference. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t also appreciate something truly ornate or maximal,” Ashley added. “Sometimes a collection even starts quite like that, and then gets pared down. It doesn’t always start from that simplistic place.”

The former actress continued: “But I think what’s great is that we have each other to lean on. And managing design is one thing and then also running the business side is another and I think you have a lot of decisions to make. I mean, when you put those two things together, there’s a lot of decisions to make on a daily basis, so I think we feel fortunate that we can have that dialogue and divide and conquer a bit.”
