The 45-year-old made her four-year-old daughter Nahla her main priority after giving birth in 2008, but she is keen to star in more films to show her daughter that working hard is really important.
"It's wildly affected my life. I haven't worked as much since I had my daughter. I have another priority and she's it," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.
"But I do want to send her the clear message that working is important and doing something that you love - that validates you, or makes you feel you are giving yourself to the world - is really important, so I will keep working," she added.
