Taylor Momsen has lost the acting bug

The former Gossip Girl star declares she has quit acting for good, stating it feels like a lifetime ago.

The 20-year-old Pretty Reckless singer starred as Jenny Humphrey in the hit teen drama Gossip Girl, but she left the show in the fourth season, declaring she was taking a break from Hollywood.

Taylor, whose first major acting role was in The Grinch alongside Jim Carey, has now revealed she never wants to act again as music is her true passion.

When asked by France's Virgin radio station if she would accept a role in a movie she said:  ''No. Just music. I'm not pursuing it at all. I haven't acted in five years. It feels like a past life.''
