Ashley Olsen Done With Acting
Ashley Olsen says she has no plans to return to her acting career and will continue to focus on her fashion line.
In an interview with Britain’s Elle magazine, Olsen says, “We worked nonstop until we were 18. Then we decided to take a break and go to school — and that was when we decided to question whether we would carry on in entertainment. It was time to step behind the process. I wanted to work on other things.”
When asked if she would ever return to the entertainment industry, she says she only wants to work behind the camera, telling Elle,It doesn’t mean I’m not interested in Hollywood. I like the way it operates and the people who are involved and the sense of possibility. But if I ever do get back in, it’s not going to be as an actress. It just felt right to move away.”
Her sister Mary-Kate continues to act, recently appearing in the fantasy movie “Beastly” in 2011, while younger sister Elizabeth is garnering acclaim for her role in “Martha Marcy May Marlene”.
