This should make you feel old: one of the Olsen twins just got married. Full House star-cum-designer Mary-Kate Olsen wed French banker Olivier Sarkozy on Friday. Olsen kept her wedding secret from the public, jumping the broom in front of 50 guests at a private home in NYC. Since Sarkozy is the half-brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy and Mary-Kate is a paparazzi magnet, it’s no surprise they chose to keep the ceremony under wraps. Guests were even asked to turn their cell phones off at the event. Attendees were allowed to help themselves to “bowls and bowls filled with cigarettes,” Page Six reports. “Everyone smoked the whole night.” And enjoyed Starbucks coffees, we’re guessing.
The new bride is seventeen years younger than her husband, a fact that drew criticism from media and fans while they were dating. Olsen addressed their age difference in an interview with WSJ Magazine in 2014, saying, “Everyone has an opinion. I find it’s better to focus on what’s in front of you and to keep putting one foot in front of the other.” The child star is clearly unbothered by naysayers and looking forward to stepping into the role of wife and stepmom to Sarkozy’s two kids from a previous marriage.
Sadly, our hopes of a Full House mini-reunion at the wedding were dashed when Bob Saget admitted he wasn’t even invited to the nuptials. He told NBC’s Today: “I was not invited, but I’m very happy and I sent a mazel tov text,” adding, “I’m very happy. I love her very much. I hope they’re happy.”
