Emma Thompson announced this afternoon that she will be taking a break from acting all of next year to focus on herself. She released a statement explaining her decision:
"I find the job I do emotionally very demanding. I suffer from occasional mild depression, which I think is a very common thing — it's fantastically common in my country and probably in yours, too — and it's a very much hidden thing people don't talk about. I think it should be discussed… Next year, I'm going to take a sabbatical. I'm not going to fundraise or perform or travel, except in pursuit of new vistas with my family. I've been meaning to do this for a long, long time, but it's been like putting the brakes on a large ship because there is so much going on."
Poor thing. This business can eat you alive if you let it!
No worries, bb! We can all make due with only two Nanny McPhee movies. Please, take some time for yourself!
