Instead, she plans to follow the example set by her own mother, actress Blythe Danner, when she was a child. The Emma star tells the upcoming issue of America's "W" magazine, which features the actress baring her pregnant belly on the cover, "There are certain women in this business who have children, and I just think, 'You must never, literally never, see them!' "You can't do movies back to back and see your child if they go to school... My mother turned down every fantastic movie there was.

British actress Emily Lloyd battled a crippling psychological disorder - but she's now back on the road to stardom. Emily who starred in the 1987 film Wish You Were Here (1987) developed Obsessive Compulsive Disorder after a trip to India. Now 29, Emily says, "It's all sorted now and my advice to anyone suffering from the same thing is - it does get better and having confidence in yourself does help... I needed a lot of time just to get away and deal with it. Counselling and some medication helped too but it's not something I want to dwell on because I think it's important to look to the future." With the future in mind Emily has got her eye on the kind of roles Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett get. She adds, "I'd love to do an Emma (1996) or an Elizabeth (1998). If somebody came up to me now and offered me a role like that, I'd jump at the chance."
