Personal Quotes From Mary-Kate :

"I like to go to parties where I know everyone. How are you going to have fun with people you don't know?"

"Ashley and I get along really well, but TV and film aren't reality. We're best friends, but we do have our fights!"

"I 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."
