Anna Friel - Anna Friel Worried About Daughter After Split
Anna Friel is pleased her six-year-old daughter Gracie coped well when she split up with the youngster's father David Thewlis.
Anna Friel was terrified her daughter would struggle when she split from David Thewlis.
The former 'Pushing Daisies' actress ended her 10-year relationship with David Thewlis in summer 2010 and is pleased their six-year-old child Gracie has adjusted to the changes in her parents' personal life.
She said: "She's never seen an argument or disagreement. And she's been so good with the whole break-up. That was my biggest fear, as it was David's.
"But luckily, she's remained unscathed and really likes Rhys and David's girlfriend."
The British beauty is now in a relationship with Welsh actor Rhys Ifans, who she started dating in January, and says her hopes for the future involve maintaining a successful balance between her personal and professional life.
She explained to Britain's Marie Claire magazine: "I want a sustained, happy relationship - which I have now and hope to maintain - children, and to earn my living as an actress.
"I've worked really, really hard. I want peace and calm and I also want my career."
