Mary-Kate Olsen Being Treated For Eating Disorder

Teen actress Mary-Kate Olsen has entered a program for treatment of an eating disorder.

The 18-year-old screen star, twin sister of fellow actress Ashley Olsen, entered a facility during the past week or 10 days and is expected to remain in treatment for about a month, sources tell REUTERS.

Publicist MICHAEL PAGNOTTA says, "(Mary-Kate) entered a treatment facility to seek professional help for a health-related issue. She is thankful for the encouragement and support of her friends and family, who are with her every step of the way." Speculation about Olsen's svelte figure has been the subject of tabloids, gossip columns and the internet for weeks. The actress herself poked fun at the issue during the twins' recent appearance on Saturday Night Live, shouting to an extra playing herself, "You're too skinny! Eat a sandwich!"

Pagnotta says both sisters, who turned 18 on 13 June (04), are going ahead with plans to attend NEW YORK UNIVERSITY together in the autumn (04).

But Ashley Olsen will be making a planned trip later this month to Australia and New Zealand without Mary-Kate to launch overseas promotion of NEW YORK MINUTE - the sisters' first theatrical feature.
