  • Along with twin sister Ashley, Mary-Kate was recently listed in a list of the fashion's top 30 names under 30.

Mary Kate Olsen, 26, and Olivier Sarkozy, 42, are doing their best to prove their haters wrong by packing on the PDAs at a basketball game.

The couple, who have been together nine months, seemed closer than ever at the Dallas Mavericks versus New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden on Saturday.

Mary-Kate’s twin sister Ashley Olsen was 21 when she dated biking super star Lance Armstrong who was 36 at the time - a 15 year age difference.
