Taylor Momsen quits acting
Wednesday 17 August 2011
Taylor Momsen has quit acting.
The former 'Gossip Girl' star - who has been in movies 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' and 'Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams' - has no plans to appear in any more films or TV shows, admitting she just wants to concentrate on her music career with 'Make Me Wanna Die' rockers The Pretty Reckless.
When asked if she had any acting roles lined up, she told Elle magazine: "I quit acting, actually. I quit 'Gossip Girl' and now tour and am in a band and that's pretty much all I want to do. Hopefully I'll be able to only do that for the rest of my life."
In May, it was confirmed the blonde beauty would not be reprising her role as 'Gossip Girl' series regular Jenny Humphrey in the fifth season of the show - which stars Ed Westwick, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Chace Crawford - along with Jessica Szohr, but it was reported the pair could make guest appearances in future episodes.
Earlier this year, Taylor explained music has always been the main passion in her life.
She said: "[Music] is all I ever wanted to do with my life. I wanted to make records and tour, so it's very exciting that our first record is coming out and people can actually hear it."
