Being an actress isn't fun anymore
“As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being an actress-director just isn't fun anymore,” she might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that she may branch out into other creative fields she is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.
