List of Mary-Kate Olsen quotes.

When Ash and I are at a premiere and they're taking photos of us, she squeezes my hand 3 times to say 'I love you' and I squeeze her hand back 4 times to say 'I love you too!'

usually do get the tomboy parts in the movies, which is kind of like me, but not totally. I like to shop as much as Ashley, but she is a little more of a girlie-girl than me

(revealing she is too self-conscious to wear a bikini) I would love to be able to swim in the ocean in Malibu. But that is asking for a bikini shot. That's inviting something that I don't want to happen. I don't need to be on a 'Who's Skinny, Who's Fat, Who's Looking Healthy, Who's Not Eating?' list. I don't want my picture taken. The only time I think it's OK is at a red-carpet event or a photo shoot. So every time I see paparazzi, I cover my face so they don't get a picture, and I'm just 'the mean person who doesn't smile.'
