Bonham Carter: I May Never Work Again

New mother HELENA BONHAM CARTER is considering retiring from acting for good, following the birth of first child BILLY RAY.

The FIGHT CLUB actress - whose had her first child with her film director TIM BURTON partner in October (03) - is finding motherhood such an incredible experience she fears she may never be able to return to the big screen.

She says, "Will having a baby change the way I work? Of course. I can't even conceive of working again ever.

"I can't even speak, I have no brain. I have breath - but no brain. Everyone who's a parent knows that it does change everything.

"So I'm still in the sort of shock stage and I can't conceive of doing anything else apart from just feeding him."
