Career: Her career famously began on the hit sitcom Full House when she was nine months old. Ashley was cast as Michelle Tanner along with her twin sister Mary-Kate in a successful attempt to sidestep child labor laws. Full House became a huge hit and turned both Olsen sisters into hugely popular stars. They soon appeared in their own direct to video movies, and lent their likenesses to a variety of merchandise such as clothing, makeup, and more. She starred alongside Mary-Kate in the films, To Grandmother's House We Go (1992), Double, Double, Toil and Trouble (1993), How the West Was Fun (1994), It Takes Two (1995), and Billboard Dad (1998).
In the 1990s, Ashley and her twin sister founded the production company Dualstar Entertainment Group. Through their production company the twins produced a long and successful string of TV movies and direct-to-video releases which they also starred in, including Passport to Paris (1999), Our Lips Are Sealed (2000), Winning London (2001), Holiday in the Sun (2001), and the television series So Little Time (2001-2002).

She and her twin sister became household names and popular figures in the preteen market during the late 1990s and early 2000s, with her likeness seen in clothes, books, fragrances, magazines, movies, and posters, among others. There were fashion dolls of her made by Mattel from 2000 to 2005.

In 2004, the twins appeared in the theatrical romantic comedy New York Minute.
In 2007, when Mary-Kate and Ashley were 21, they said that if they got involved in movies together again it would be as producers. In 2009, Olsen contemplated returning to acting and said, "Never say never." She made appearances in the films The Jerk Theory (2009) and I'm Still Here (2010).
In March 2012, both Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen indicated that they would be retiring as actresses in order to focus on their careers in fashion.

In October 2013, she appeared in the music video for "City of Angels" by Thirty Seconds to Mars.
In 2015, it was announced that John Stamos had signed on with Netflix to produce and co-star in Fuller House, a spin-off of Full House that would reunite the original cast members. The twins declined to join the cast of Fuller House, with Ashley saying she would not feel comfortable in front of the camera after a 12-year absence from acting.
The sisters released the celebrity interview book Influence in 2008.
Since diverging creatively with her sister, Ashley Olsen has focused her energies on the world of fashion design. Alongside her sister, she has spearheaded a fashion line for the massive retailer Walmart for girls ages 4 to 14 as well as a beauty line called Mary-Kate and Ashley: Real Fashion for Real Girls. She's also released collections with smaller, much higher-end fashion lines such as Badgley Mischka. The twins also head a couture fashion label, The Row, as well as the Elizabeth and James, Olsenboye, and StyleMint retail collections.
As a businessperson, Olsen has been praised for her commitment to providing decent working conditions to overseas factory laborers, giving full maternity leave to workers in Bangladesh. Today their retail business generates over $100 million per year in revenue.
Olsen has won awards including Kids' Choice Awards and Young Artist Awards. In 2004 she was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Television with her sister Mary-Kate Olsen at 6801 Hollywood Blvd. She has also won awards from the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
Personal Life: Ashley has been dating artist Louis Eisner since October 2017.

They were first spotted back in 2017 in Bel Air. Before Louis, Ashley was linked with Jared Leto, Justin Bartha, director Bennett Miller, and art dealer Richard Sachs.
In 2005, Olsen filed a $40 million lawsuit against tabloid magazine National Enquirer for depicting her as being involved in a drug scandal. The National Enquirer later apologized and stated it did not intend to suggest she was involved in the scandal.
