The 'Beguiled' actress says that whilst she loves what she does, she doesn't think it is the be all and end all of everything.

She said: "When I think about the age I'm at, I probably would enjoy directing a little later from now, you know? But the focus in my life is ... Well, I'm redoing a house.

"I have other things I'm enjoying and I've been working since I was three. I'm a homebody. I'm trying to make it all happen. The movie industry isn't everything to me at all. I love what I do, when I love the people I'm working with, but other than that it's not really worth it to me."

And the 35-year-old actress would love to direct in the future but wants to focus on having a family first.

She added to The Sunday Times' Culture magazine: "But the most fun I've had is screenwriting.

"I'd almost rather just write screenplays, as directing is so much of your life. Also, I'm in a place now where I do want to direct, but I more want to have a family."

Meanwhile, Kirsten previously revealed she thinks it is time she has "babies and chills".

She said: "I'm at a stage in my life where I'm like, I've been working since I was 3. It's time to have babies and chill ...

"I wasn't one of those 'I need a baby!' people until my goddaughter was born. I love her so much.

"That love is just like ... you can't experience that unless you have a kid. I put her to bed last night and she woke up this morning and said to her mom, 'Where's Kiki?' I just love that love. That's what I want."
