Mary Kate Olsen was spotted out in NYC on Saturday afternoon heading to lunch with boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy, who is 16 years her senior. This, only a week after photos of the two cuddling and making out court-side at a New York Knicks game while seated directly next to Sarkozy’s children, were plastered all over the internet to the chagrin of, well, everyone.
The couple, who have been together since May, are no strangers to a few side-eyes from the public. The 42-year-old Sarkozy, an investment banker and the half-brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, looks dramatically older than the notoriously tiny 26-year-old, often giving off an incredibly creepy father/daughter sort of vibe. Ew.
Olsen recently spoke to WSJ Magazine about the relationship, remarking, “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.”
A very respectable position on the situation, MK… screw the haters! But why not follow in your sister’s footsteps and find a gorgeous and youthfully glowing older man? (Johnny Depp, anyone?) Perhaps one that doesn’t look like he could have been a contender in changing your diapers? I can practically smell the daddy issues from here.
The tabloids have already pegged the relationship as a quite literal May-December romance, but all judgment aside (yeah, not so much), maybe these two will actually stand the test of time, and Olsen will make an adorably precocious second Mrs. Olivier Sarkozy.
After all, how perfectly proportional would Mary Kate look on top of a wedding cake?
