London: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow says acting became unimportant to her when she had kids with husband, Coldplay actor Chris Martin.
The 39-year-old, who has two children - daughter Apple, seven, and five-year-old son Moses - said she lost her sense of being an artist after she gave birth, as reported.
"When I first had my kids, I just didn't want to be anywhere else. Now they are older, I feel my sense of self coming back as an artist. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to get good parts later in my life - like Meryl Streep. But still I've starred in a lot of great films and won a lot of great awards," Paltrow said.

The actress also said she loves the kind of roles she is getting as she can work and not have to be away from her kids for too long.

"I just had the summer off with them and now they're back to school again. Then what I'll do is look for more interesting supporting-size parts. I have not starred in a movie since I had my daughter seven years ago because it's too much. I would never see them and there's no point," she added.
