They have no talent. They just happen to be twins. Their parents are the real genius, not them.

I think the people who are bashing the twins may well appreciate that they are fairly decent role models for young kids to look up to compared to the boatload of skanky types that dominates our cultural landscape. The really annoying bit perhaps stems from the age old battle of quality, intelligent art as entertainment vs shitbrained publicity-mongering branding as entertainment.

I see nothing special in them or about them nor any discernable talent apart from irritating the shit out of me.

Aren't they hungry? I'm gonna go eat a bacon cheeseburger for that skeletal one in the pink dress.

you know....

all this talk about how they are TOO skinny is JUST AS BAD as talk about people being over-weight. Why do we put so much emphasis on appearance? WHY?

She is a petite 17 year old girl who has been raised well and is a good role model for young girls - are there FACTS that she has an eating disorder? Because, occasionally there are people who are just damn skinny. Again, she is a TEENAGER...give her a few years...she'll gain weight.

I agree with what HelloAngel said.
I could be wrong but I think one of them has admitted to having an eating disorder. If it is true, whichever one it is certainly doesn't deserve such harsh criticism. Try living with such a condition for 6 months and see how well you do. Then try it under constant public scrutiny.

I've always thought the Olsen twins looked like those hideous Troll dolls

I don't see why people can't ignore them. They're cute, and look like they'll be even hotter in a couple of years. Kids love them and they don't seem like screwed up kids to boot. I think its amazing that they've been able to become multi millionaires.

Full House was an ok all right show so I have no negativity towards them. The countdowns are creepy but it has to be somewhat of a compliment considering its better to be labeled "hot" than fugly.

Guess that's just the Italian in me...

That reminds me of something my mom said to me Sunday. I kept asking her what she wanted for breakfast (instead of a huge greasy one) and she said, "Stop being Italian!!!!"

THEY aren't the geniuses...it's their parents/managers that have marketed them to death.

I just don't like the fact that they don't seem to have personalities outside of each other. THey're twins, and that's what they're known for. Not for being individuals or having distinct differences. The power is in their similarities.

It's quite sad, actually.
