Los Angeles, Nov 13 IANS | 2 years ago

Actress-fashion designer Ashley Olsen chose to stay away from acting because she was unable to give "100 percent of her time" to the entertainment industry.

The 27-year-old star, who along with her twin sister Mary-Kate first appeared on the US TV aged just nine months in "Full House", was last seen in 2004 movie "New York Minute".

She admits she couldn't give her full commitment to the big screen because of her fashion business.

Ashley co-founded four successful lines - The Row, Elizabeth and James, Olsenboye and StyleMint - with her sister.

"I was reading scripts, and ultimately I just said to the people who are representing me, 'I need to do things 100 percent. I don't feel like I can give you 100 percent of my time," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Ashley as saying.

"There's a lot of compromise in the entertainment industry. I can't sit in this room and audition for this part.'"
