Ashley Olsen Quits Acting! Will Anyone Notice? (WATCH)

As the old saying goes, if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

Similarly, if an actress who never acts in anything that anybody sees quits acting, she she actually do anything?

Ashley Olsen has announced that she is leaving the acting game for good. In an interview with Elle U.K. magazine, the former child star broke the news.

“I don’t like to be the center of attention anymore,” she revealed.

“I don’t have to be a pretty face,” the slightly older Olsen twin continued. “I’ve done that, but now it’s important and liberating to be on the other side of the lens.”

Wait… did Ashley Olsen just hint that she wants to be a director? It’s pretty hard to see that happening.

Though Ashley hasn’t exactly starred in a bunch of critically acclaimed and commercially successful projects lately (her last movie was the 2004 bomb New York Minute), she has experienced significant success in the world of fashion. Along with her sister, Mary-Kate, she has turned her name into a multi-million dollar line of clothing.
