The 26 Times Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen Actually Smiled With Teeth — PHOTOS
Meet the Olsens: childhood idols, sartorial experts, and masters of the red carpet smolder. But pause — have you ever seen Mary-Kate and Ashley flash their pearly whites? The twins may have grown up milking it for the camera, but their adult years lack the golden ingredient that the media clamors from celebrities: a toothy smile. After all, this is Hollywood, land of the million dollar smirk.
From front row at the runways to awards shows, the Olsens always show up dressed to the nines. And even as an forever quotable tot on Full House, Mary-Kate and Ashley knew how to win over the camera — and their audience. No matter the photo op, the business-savvy duo manages to look impossibly chic, all in part to their secret weapon. It's not in the angles or lighting, but rather, a certain fruit. Allegedly, every time the Olsens strike a pose, they whisper the word "prune," according to BuzzFeed. Supposedly, this word creates the ultimate relaxed pout. Looks like the Olsens' hack for acing your next selfie all lies in the lip game!
No wonder the public is never privy to seeing Mary-Kate and Ashley's teeth — that is, until now. Sometimes the twins let their colors fly free, and the results are glorious.
