The

Pretty Woman

star took time out of her movie-making schedule to become a mother, but insists she is not planning on giving up her career for good.



Julia said: "Let's get a couple of things straight. It hasn't been years and years since I made a movie. I'm not coming back from the dead - I've just had two kids!



"I have no intention of retiring, but I do think it's impossible to do movie after movie, because there aren't that many good films made. But I already have an acting project set for this year. I start shooting

Duplicity

with Clive Owen in the spring."



The 40-year-old actress has three children with her cameraman husband Danny Moder - three year-old twins Hazel and Phinneaus and six-month-old Henry - and thinks it is important to find a balance between her professional and personal lives.



Speaking about her latest film

Charlie Wilson's War

, Julia added: "We shot a lot of the film in Los Angeles and I could get home to the kids when I wanted to.



"That's important, and I can't deny I've taken a longer break from acting these past two years, but I didn't feel like I was missing anything. I did a play and found other ways to fulfil my creative impulses. Now I have time to enjoy great literature like

Leonardo the Terrible Monster
