French star Julie Delpy is considering retiring from acting so she can concentrate on her career as a writer and director.
The Before Sunset star is currently promoting Two Days in New York - her fourth film as a director - at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, and she tells her days in front of the camera are numbered.
She explains, "I think I'm done with acting. Before, I just acted in movies with people I knew. Now I don't want to pursue acting. I will pursue writing and directing."
Delpy received the Special Jury Prize for her movie Le Skylab at Spain's San Sebastian Film Festival in September (11). She is currently working on a biopic about late The Clash star Joe Strummer.
