Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen Olsen have a telepathic bond. Ashley has revealed the identical twins can sense what the other is feeling and thinking, even when they are apart. She told Marie Claire magazine: “We both carry the weight of each other. Our bond is really beyond words. I know when she’s hurting, I know when she’s going through something. I know when she’s happy - whether I’m with her or not.” Ashley graces the front page of the September issue of the magazine. Editor Joanna Coles was extremely impressed with how the 21-year-old star has coped with fame from such a young age. She said: “It’s incredibly cool that she’s come through everything that she has to be this very normal, grounded, sound young woman.” Despite their bond, it was revealed earlier this year that Mary-Kate will be breaking up their showbiz partnership to star in US TV show ‘Weeds’. Mary-Kate will play Tara, a devoted Christian teenager living in the religious community of Majestic who becomes the love interest of Silas, one of the central characters on the show. She will star in at least 10 episodes, her first major acting role without her sister.
