    Mary-Kate + Ashley Olsen Officially Quit Acting - We thought they did years ago

    Even though they haven't appeared in anything on screen in years, those fashionistas Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are officially quitting the acting profession. The ladies are serious (and respected) fashion designers with a burgeoning portfolio of labels (Elizabeth and James, The Row and more) that demand their attention. May as well stick to what they are reeaaallllyyy good at. The ladies sure know clothes.

    One of the ladies told ELLE UK the following:

    "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. 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…It just felt right to move away."

    No more Michelle Tanner! Remember how cute she/they were?

    Have you ever seen or worn any of M-K and Ashley's clothes?
