Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen by Jamie McCarthy/WireImage.com

"Fur Is Worn by Beautiful Animals and Ugly People" — that's the message of a poster featuring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, to be unveiled by PETA Wednesday afternoon at the site of the sibs' star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The "Trollsen Twins, Hairy Kate and Trashley" (as PETA dubs them, albeit in an eighth-grade manner) are being targeted by the org for their refusal to defer da fur, and as such are also "seen" learning about the evils of harming animals in a PETA-produced video parody of Full House. Hey, as long as it has Coulier doing that high-sterical Donald Duck voice.... read more

It wasn't enough that they have enough money that they can use it to line their doggie beds, they also had to be under 25. This hurts. Among the top 20 are: bad girl Lindsay Lohan and good girl Miley Cyrus, with $3.5 million apiece; Mitovich's imaginary girlfriend, Scarlett Johansson, No. 12 with $5 million; popsters Avril Lavigne and Hilary Duff, $12 million apiece; Daniel "Harry Potter" Radcliffe, No. 6 with $15 million; the Olsen twins, No. 5 with $17 million each; and in the top spot, the clearly overpaid LeBron James, with $27 million. In related news, Mitovich, I want a raise. And Botox. — Ben Katner read more

Fur Shame: Nicole Richie, Olsen Twin Top Worst List

Nicole Richie and Ashley Olsen this year lay dubious claim to the No. 1 and 2 spots on PETA's "Worst-Dressed List" of fur-wearing celebs. Of Richie, the press release says, "This pelt-wearing party girl is all animal skin and bones," while Olsen, they advise, would be better to bulk up her frame "using a fork instead." Placing fourth (behind Christina Ricci, who recently donned reindeer fur for a magazine cover) is Eva Longoria. Quips PETA of the Desperate housewife, "You'd think she'd be more sympathetic to the plight of rabbits considering the way she screw around like one on Wisteria Lane." See, even activists can be funny! read more

I know this is a really, ...

Question: I know this is a really, really stupid question, but some friends and I were talking about the Olsen twins and (not that either of them is ever going to be nominated for an Academy Award — sorry Mary-Kate! Sorry Ashley!), but we were wondering: Have twins ever shared an Oscar?


Answer: I'd go so far as to say it's a very silly question but I'd stop short of "stupid," perhaps because I was actually curious enough to look into it. And the answer is that two twins have been Oscar winners, though the twins in question weren't actors: They're Julius J. and Philip G. Epstein, two of the three screenwriters who wrote Casablanca (1943). Oh, and they didn't have to share a single statuette — each got his own.

PARIS AND HER DOG? NOT SO HOT

A poll conducted by the magazines The New York Dog and The Hollywood Dog names songstress Joss Stone the best celebrity dog owner and Paris Hilton the worst. The mags lauded Stone, who has a poodle named Dusty Springfield, for helping pets orphaned by hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and lambasted the Simple Life swizzle stick for ditching Tinkerbell for a cuter pooch, then cuddling with a ferret and then a monkey. Ashley Olsen almost stole the top honor from Stone, until it was realized that her mixed-breed was actually her hair. read more
