Mary-Kate Olsen has been discharged from a treatment facility after a six-week stay, her spokesman said Monday.

"She is feeling very well and is looking forward to rejoining her family and friends and preparing for her freshman year at New York University," said Michael Pagnotta in a written statement.

Olsen was undergoing treatment for an eating disorder, a source close to her told CNN last month, declining to elaborate on the nature of the eating disorder.

Us Weekly magazine reported that Olsen was suffering from anorexia.

Pagnotta would say only that Olsen had entered a treatment facility last month to "seek professional help for a health-related issue" and was discharged late Friday night.

Speculation about Olsen's health intensified as she and her twin sister, Ashley, promoted their first feature film, "New York Minute."

In a May appearance on "Saturday Night Live," Mary-Kate Olsen made light of the speculation during a sketch in which she shouted at someone playing herself, "You're too skinny! Eat a sandwich!"

Olsen has formed a mini-entertainment empire with her twin. The sisters have been in the public spotlight since they were toddlers when they shared a role on the television series "Full House." They went on to become multimillionaires by selling products emblazoned with their images, ranging from DVDs to bedsheets.

On their 18th birthday, which they celebrated June 13, the sisters became co-presidents of their company, Dualstar Entertainment Group.
