Family takes priority for Sienna Miller who will only return to acting for 'something spectacular'
Tuesday 30 July 2013
Layer Cake star Sienna Miller has said she is happy being a mother and will only return to acting for "something spectacular".
The actress, who had a daughter last year with actor Tom Sturridge, said she had cut down on work and only agreed to appear in her latest film, Foxcatcher, because it "was too good not to do".
She told the Evening Standard: "I felt, having done that, that unless it's of that calibre, it's not worth not being with my baby...Unless it's something spectacular, I really want to be a mother."
Her comments come after Johnny Depp said he could retire from movie-making soon and described the life of an actor as "a kind of insane option for a human being".
The 50-year-old star said he would not be "dropping out any second" but the moment was " probably not too far away".
He told BBC Breakfast: "At a certain point you start thinking and you know when you add up the amount of dialogue you say per year, for example, and you realise that you've said written words more than you've actually had a chance to say your own words, you start thinking about that as a kind of insane option for a human being.
"So are there quieter things that I wouldn't mind doing? Yeah, I would not mind that."
But Depp hinted he might appear one more time as Captain Jack Sparrow in another instalment of the hit Pirates Of The Caribbean series.
The three-time Oscar nominee, who split from long-term partner Vanessa Paradis last year, most recently starred in The Lone Ranger.
The film, in which Depp plays the title character's sidekick Tonto, has received a mixed reception from critics.
