London: Actor Ewan McGregor says he needs to take a break from work to spend time with his family.
The 40-year-old revealed it was only when he and wife Eva Mavrakis adopted a baby girl last year that he decided to cut back on work, because he didn`t want to miss out on family time, reports contactmusic.com.
"I finished a film in September and I just felt I`d worked hard for years. I felt like I just hadn`t stopped. Which I hadn`t. And I just thought one day that I didn`t have to work if I didn`t want to. It was like the sky suddenly opening up," said Mcgregor.
"I called my wife and suggested that I didn`t work for the rest of the year and it`s been lovely. It was great to be at home. We`ve got a new baby, and those are beautiful months that you won`t get back if you`re not there," he added.
