They say twins are alike in almost every way; that’s definitely true for the 27-year-old Olsen sisters. Mary Kate Olsen has been dating a much older man, 44-year-old banker Olivier Sarkozy, since May 2012, and her twin sister, Ashley, also has a thing for dating men who are almost twice her age.
Back in January, Ashley Olsen ended her five-month May-December relationship with 44-year-old millionaire businessman David Schulte. “He was a great guy and cute, but it didn’t work out,” an insider told Us Weekly. Less than a month later, Ashley has found herself a new older man—she’s reportedly dating 47-year-old Moneyball director Bennett Miller.
The new celebrity couple has been spending a lot of time together in L.A., where Bennett Miller has been working on his next movie, and Ashley Olsen even supported her new older man at the funeral of his close childhood friend, actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. Hopefully this May-December relationship will be a little more successful than her last one.
What do you think: Would you date an older man who was twice your age?
