LAS VEGAS — Adult star and Charlie Sheen "goddess," Bree Olson is quitting porn — this time for good.

Although she announced to TMZ last October that she was done with the adult world, the star has since signed on to co-host the AVN Awards show this Saturday night and is signing for fans at the AEE Expo.

But in an interview with the Las Vegas Sun’s Robin Leach, Bree said her departure was a bit abrupt and she wants to take this last chance to say goodbye.

Olson told Leach it's her way of saying thank you to her fellow actors, actresses and filmmakers.

“This is a great way for me to say thank you and farewell. I’m trying to transition into mainstream and just trying to evolve my acting career. I don’t have anything against the adult career at all. I have nothing bad to say about it at all, or else I wouldn’t be hosting, but now I want to completely focus on one thing, and I just feel that chapter of my life is over. I’m 25 now. Porn was something I did when I was young and just having fun. I’m evolving as a person,” she said.

When asked if crossing over into mainstream will be tough, Olson admitted she really wasn’t sure, revealing that some little-known adult performers made it without fanfare and stressed that she didn’t consciously use porn as a steppingstone.

“It’s already been difficult, but now the reactions are different. In adult, everything was handed to me because once the name ‘Bree Olson’ was established, I automatically got jobs — I didn’t have to go for ‘auditions.’ I just automatically got everything, which is why I was able to stay home in Indiana, fly to L.A., work two weeks, fly back home, go back out there, back and forth.

"There was nothing to think about. Mainstream is obviously a lot more work. I have to go out and dedicate myself full time to it, but I love the challenge. I’m ready for something like that…I’m ready to work toward challenges again — it’s nice to have a goal."

Olson said she has an agent and is moving to L.A. from her home in Indiana full time to get “closer to Hollywood,” in order to seriously pursue her acting career.
