# [Tex/LaTex] Align text in minipage at same height

minipagevertical alignment

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}
