Gwyneth Paltrow is taking a break from movies to concentrate on motherhood.

The Hollywood actress – who has a three-year-old daughter Apple and 23 month-old son Moses with Coldplay star Chris Martin – is putting her children first by refusing to make another film until late next year.

She said: “I’m not doing another movie until next autumn. Everything is about family, I’m putting movies on the backburner.”

Gwyneth only recently returned to work after taking a self-imposed break following the birth of Moses.

Last year, she said: “I’ve been at home being a housewife and I’ve loved every second of it. Being a wife and mother is definitely the hardest job. It’s 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and they want you present and real and connected and there.”

Gwyneth can be seen in romantic drama Two Lovers and the latest Marvel Comic to be turned into a blockbuster Iron Man, both set for release later this year.
