British movie star Emma Thompson is taking a year off from acting - to teach drama at her daughter's school.
The Love Actually star turned 50 in April (09) and has vowed to take a step back out of the spotlight to enjoy family life.
She tells Britain's Daily Express newspaper, "I'm taking a year off. That's my birthday present to myself. I'm not going to act, write or anything like that. I'll just be a mum. I'll teach drama at my daughter's school, I'll cook meals and have fun."
