Mary-Kate Olsen has spoken frankly about her past as a child star, saying: "I wouldn't wish my upbringing on anybody."
The actress-turned-designer told the September issue of US Marie Claire magazine that she and her sister Ashley were "little monkey performers".
The 24-year-old, who with her sister found fame on kids TV show Full House, added: "I look at old pictures of me, and I don't feel connected to them at all. But I wouldn't take it back for the world."
Mary-Kate - who has founded her own fashion label, The Row, with Ashley - said she would rather be known as a designer than an actress.
She describes her new passion as "kind of like a mask to hide behind".
"I still read scripts, and if something comes a long, that's great," she told the mag. "But this is my day job. The Row is where I go every day."
