Mary-Kate Olsen has finally admitted that being a working actress since she was 9 months old wasn't all it was cracked up to be. She shared with Marie Claire, "I would never wish my upbringing on anyone ... I look at old photos of me, and I don’t feel connected to them at all." Olsen also admitted that she felt she and her sister were constantly treated like "performance monkeys" as children. Adorable, little, blond performance monkeys who made awesome straight-to video-mysteries.
