Maria wrote me a note yesterday wondering about the separate seating. A few months ago, When it was first reported that Ashley was dating another older man, George Condo, I offered up a 5 minute theory about why she and Mary-Kate might be leaning into a more mature dating pool.
The other night she and Olivier were at the Knicks game with Ashley and her new boyfriend, Richard Sachs, seated across the aisle from each other.
The Sarkozys and the Sachses of the world would have had have no personal pop culture connection to them when they were adolescents, no attachment to them as sisters adventuring in Paris in teen marketed movies.
They would have met them as they are now, fully formed now, instead of having to reconcile an intimate awareness of their image in adolescence with who they became.
As the famous saying goes, age ain’t nothing but a number.
So, why do people keep judging the Olsen twins for dating older men?
