Emma Thompson taking sabbatical from Hollywood
New York: British actress Emma Thompson has revealed that she’ll take sabbatical from Hollywood next year.
"I find the job I do emotionally very demanding," the New York Daily News quoted the British actress as telling the Hollywood Reporter, referring to her job as an entertainer.
"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," she added.
Thompson, who received a star on the Walk of Fame, revealed that she would be taking some time off after steadily working for years.
"Next year, I`m going to take a sabbatical," Thompson revealed.
She later added: "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."
