Align text in minipage at same height

I need to put some text at the same height in my page, and I'm trying to do it with a minipage, but I'm not able to do it since they get centre-aligned.

This is the LaTeX for the figure I've uploaded:

\begin{minipage}[]{0.5\textwidth}
\begin{flushleft}
{\large \textit{Author}:\vspace*{0.5cm} \\
Me}
\end{flushleft}
\end{minipage}%
%
\begin{minipage}[]{0.5\textwidth}
\begin{flushright}
{\large \textit{Supervisor}:\vspace*{0.5cm} \\
Him}\\
\vspace*{0.5cm}
Other Guy}
\end{flushright}
\end{minipage}%


Can you please explain me what I'm doing wrong?

Use [t] as the option -- \begin{minipage}[t]{0.5\textwidth}:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{minipage}[t]{0.5\textwidth}
\begin{flushleft}
\large \textit{Author}:\vspace*{0.5cm} \\
Me
\end{flushleft}
\end{minipage}%
%
\begin{minipage}[t]{0.5\textwidth}
\begin{flushright}
\large \textit{Supervisor}:\vspace*{0.5cm} \\
Him\\
\vspace*{0.5cm}
Other Guy
\end{flushright}
\end{minipage}%
\end{document}

 It was a really silly question...thks ;) – Matteo Nov 8 '12 at 16:21 If you use a command like \large always include a paragraph end (\par or blank line) before the } that closes the scope, I know the ones here are just copied from the MWE:-) In this case you could more simply not have the { } and just let the \large end naturally at the end of the flushright environment. – David Carlisle Nov 8 '12 at 19:16 @Matteo Nothing is silly here, once one doesn't know how to do something then it is important. It is after you see the solution that it becomes obvious. – azetina Nov 8 '12 at 19:20 @DavidCarlisle: You caught me. :-) I blindly copied and looked only at [t]. You are right. Thank you. :-) – Harish Kumar Nov 8 '12 at 22:21 @azetina - thks for your kindness, for sure the next time it will be silly... :) – Matteo Nov 9 '12 at 8:25
