” may be her last, for she is not interested in making films any more.
She told the Telegraph
“I have to say I’m not that interested in making films any more,” she said. “I know I’m not meant to say that, but that’s where it is for me now. I’m 41 years old and very happy being in Tennessee with my baby and with my husband.
I obviously have creative blood in me and it needs to come out in some way but I just don’t have that burning desire any more.”
“I’m not saying I’m never going to work again, but I’m at peace with whatever happens, which is a nice place to be at this stage of my life.”
The actress had previously hinted that she might quit acting, however, she admitted that she could never completely rule out a return to Hollywood.

” and “The Invasion
” both struggling at the box.
She returns to the big screen this week with “Australia,” her second collaboration with director Baz Lurhmann but this too has not been met well by the critics and is struggling to make back it’s $130 million budget.
