"I don't have to be a pretty face. I've done that, but now it's important and liberating to be on the other side of the lens. I don't like to be the center of attention anymore," Ashley tells Elle UK.

"It doesn't mean I'm not interested in Hollywood," she adds (via Huffington Post). "I like the way it operates, I like the people who are involved and the sense of possibility. But if I ever get back in, it's not going to be as an actress."
