ASHLEY OLSEN spoke to waiting fans at the London premiere of her latest film New York Minute via mobile phone as she was "too busy" to attend in person.

The millionairess, 18, whose twin sister and co-star MARY-KATE is recovering from an eating disorder, spoke to the crowd congregating in the West End through a cellphone to compensate for her no-show.

Fan LAURA BERESFORD, 13, says, "I was in shock - I love the girls. Ashley told me that she was sorry she couldn't be there."
