Jennifer Connelly to quit acting?

'Creation' actress Jennifer Connelly says she may not do another film because family are her main priority

Jennifer Connelly may never work again.

The 'A Beautiful Mind' actress - who raises sons Kai, 12, and Stellan, six, with husband Paul Bettany - admits she has no projects lined up for when she finishes filming 'What's Wrong With Virginia?'.

She said: "The biggest thing for me is wanting my kids to grow up safely and have happy lives. To me that's enough.

"The family is the most important thing to me. I'm very blessed. I have gorgeous, healthy, funny kids and a good husband.

"Becoming a mother has made all the difference in terms of learning to take responsibility for my life. Parenthood changed the way I do everything."

While both Jennifer and Paul have carved out successful acting careers, neither Kai - whose father is photographer David Dugan - nor Stellan want to follow in their footsteps.

She added to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Stellan was saying for a while that he want to be an actor.

"But we just went on holiday where we did a lot of snorkelling and now he's saying he wants to be a marine biologist. Weirdly, at exactly the same age, Kai said he wanted to be a marine biologist too."
