After a childhood in the public eye, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have shifted to live fairly private lives. 

Following their shared role as Michelle Tanner on "Full House," the two had successful acting careers in their teen years. But they stepped away from the limelight after the late aughts, which Mary-Kate Olsen credits in part due to the fact that they "were raised to be discreet people." 

The twins, who turned 35 on Sunday, rarely give interviews (Mary-Kate Olsen warned they were "a bit out of practice"), but sat down with Vice's i-D Magazine for a story published Monday to commemorate the 15th anniversary of their fashion brand, The Row. The "New York Minute" stars, who moved to The Big Apple together when they were 18, originally didn't want to be the faces of their company, they told the publication.
