America’s favorite '90s twins, the Olsens, have been hiding under the radar lately. Ashley Olsen has just announced that this is because she has officially resigned from her acting career.
Mary-Kate and Ashley each have their own cover of April’s Elle U.K. Magazine. During her interview, Ashley revealed that the Hollywood spotlight is no longer for her.
“I don’t like to be the center of attention anymore,” she told Elle U.K.
According to E! News, Ashley told the magazine that she has no desire to continue acting. The twins have branded their names by working non-stop from when they were babies to 18 years old.
“I don’t have to be a pretty face,” Ashley also told Elle. “I’ve done that, but now it's important and liberating to be on the other side of the lens.”
Ashley explained that her resignation does not mean that she doesn’t have any interest in Hollywood. If she ever does decide to come back into the spotlight, she plans on making sure it is not as an actress. Perhaps Ashley will persue a career behind the camera.
Her new main focus will be on her three fashion lines with Mary-Kate, reports MTV News. Ashley describes herself and her sister as perfectionists who need to always be closely involved with everything, which is why it will be beneficial for their clothing line to be her main priority.
It seems Ashley’s decision has not influenced Mary-Kate, who has not decided to remove herself from the business.
