London: French actress Audrey Tautou is planning to retire from big screen and wants to become a sailor thereafter.

Tautou is undertaking a five-year course in navigating the high seas.

"A few years ago, I thought at 40 I`d stop. Because maybe I would have wanted to do something else. There are many things that I like apart from my work," dailystar.co.uk quoted the 34-year-old as saying.

"Also, I want to become a sailor... So like in five years I will be ready and I will be on my boat around the world," the ‘The Da Vinci Code’ actress said.

"I would love to do that. I would love to cross the Atlantic. It may never happen but I would love to do that. It has been a dream for ages. Sailors, for me, are heroes. Like Ellen MacArthur. That impressed me," she added.
