Ashley Olsen retired from eating a long time ago.

But in the latest issue of Elle UK, the former Full House star says she's also giving up the business that made her famous. And a billionaire.

“We worked non-stop until we were 18," Ashley says of herself and her twin. "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."

And now? The 25-year old is content to remain away from the camera, she says, concluding:

"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.”
