"Lizzie Maguire" star walks away from Hollywood and joins the Army

Carly Schroeder is trading fame for fatigues.

The former "Lizzie McGuire" actress has enlisted in the Army.

"I've been considering it for a while and it is a big choice, but thankfully my parents and my little brother were very supportive of me," Schroeder, 28, told TMZ on Wednesday. "My dad was actually in the Army, he was a Green Beret medic, and my little brother Hunter, he's in the Marines now."

Schroeder said that working with veterans and advocating for human trafficking victims was behind her decision.

She's undergone numerous training courses and is interested in working in military intelligence after she completes Officer Candidate School, she says.

Schroeder has documented her military training on her Instagram account with guns blazing.

She announced her move in February, writing on Instagram, "For 22 years, I’ve played dress up for a living. As an actress I’ve been kidnapped, gone blind, nearly eaten by lions and murdered on more than one occasion. I tormented Lizzie McGuire’s little brother on the Disney Channel, was a dolphin trainer, the first female soccer player on an all boys team and Harrison Ford once rescued me during an intense home invasion."

4. She looks like she could play for the other team

She looks to be drooling at the prospect of those boot camp showers.
