Teen star Mary-Kate Olsen quit her studies at New York University (NYU) in October (05) because her acting career makes her happier than writing college assignments.

The New York Minute beauty has now moved to Los Angeles and is spending her time looking after her health and pushing her screen career onto the next level.

She says, "I'm happy that I kind of realised that, OK, I just need to take care of myself right now.

"I need to be able to go to yoga and work out and just read scripts and go on auditions, because that's what makes me happy.

"Like, papers don't really make me happy."
