Winona Ryder says she would give up acting if she got pregnant because having children is so much work
Winona Ryder would give up acting to have a baby.
The 39-year-old actress believes having children takes a lot of "work" so she would rather step out of the spotlight to raise a family.
She said: "I think if I had a child, I would. I think I'd just want to be a mum. And I've seen from my brother and sister-in-law how much work children are so I think I'd want it to be my priority."
However, if she did have children, Winona would worry about being able to return to acting, admitting last month that she wonders if it would end her career.
She said: "If I wanted to have a family now, would I be able to come back to work in a couple of years?"
The 'Black Swan' actress recently admitted she has delayed getting married for so long because she only ever wants to walk down the aisle once.
She said: "I very much believe in marriage. I hope to only be married once, which is why I've never been married. But I am a strong believer. My parents have been together for 40 years and are still very much in love so I think I have very high standards."
