Mary-Kate with Stavros Niarchos
Mary-Kate Olsen may have found a new man to fill Stavros Niarchos’ giant-size shoes. Of late, the diminutive twin-mogul has been seen at LA nightclubs with Mischa Taylor, who is something of Mr. Niarchos’ vertical doppelganger.
Like Mr. Niarchos, Mr. Taylor is “huge, probably around 6’4,” according to a friend of Ms. Olsen’s. Born in South Africa, he also has a long bushy mane—but Mr. Taylor’s is blond.
The little-known Mr. Taylor is good friends with Survivor: Panama winner Aras Baskauskas. The two men met as students at the Crossroads School in Santa Monica, where the alumnae include actors Jack Black and Sean Astin, and bluegrass revivalist Gillian Welch.
“They just recently started hooking up,” a friend said. “Mary-Kate has been bringing him around a lot lately. It’s funny. Obviously she has a thing for giant foreigners. Weird because she’s so tiny.”
