Washington, Nov 1 : 'Full House' star Ashley Olsen has pledged to keep her kids miles away from pursuing a career in Hollywood, insisting that the industry has turned "ugly".
Along with twin sister Mary-Kate, the 22-year-old began filming their first starring roles in U.S. TV series Full House at nine-months-old before launching a media empire with their company Dualstar in 1993.
However, Ashley is convinced her own children would have a less pleasant experience growing up in the limelight than her own, reports Contactmusic.
When she was asked of her ambitions for her potential daughter, she said, "I would definitely want her to have a job and understand what it's like to work and how important it is to be something greater than yourself. But being in this industry or the industry I was brought up in, probably not. It's pretty ugly.
"We worked after school and when we weren't on set we were in school. We never came across any problems. It was before the whole paparazzi phase, so it wasn't that bad."
