Ashley Olsen, and her twin sister Mary-Kate, has a successful fashion empire. And for the time being, high fashion is where she wants to remain.
"We worked non-stop 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," the 25-year-old says in an interview with April's ELLE U.K.
"It was time to step behind the process. I wanted to work on other things. 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."
Meanwhile, the sisters' younger sibling, Elizabeth Olsen, 23, is on track to be one of 2012's breakout actresses. After starring as the lead role in Martha Marcy May Marlene, her second movie, Silent House, just hit theaters.
