Ashley Olsen Retires from Acting

by at . Comments

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.”

It wasnt their fashion empire that made them billionaires its was Full House and those stupid kid sing along videos that made them billionaires. They are just too embarrased to have that be apart of their past. They just started doing fashion, they were billionaires at 6.

Mary-Kate is the one who doesn't eat. And I am pretty sure it is their fashion empire that made them billionnaires. I hate that I know so much about them.
