Tilda Swinton - Tilda Swinton Sparks Retirement Speculation

Tilda Swinton has sparked speculation she is ready to quit movies after revealing her decision to become an actress was "a major mistake".
The Academy Award-winner, who is receiving huge praise for her portrayal of a troubled mother in new movie We Need To Talk About Kevin, has hinted she is ready to leave Hollywood.
In a new interview, Swinton declares "I'm hoping to pull it to a close shortly" and admits she's "trying to get back on track" and focus on writing.
Britain's Daily Express quotes the star as saying, "I'm not really interested in acting. I've given up waiting for an epiphany of interest to strike.
"Acting is a red herring and a major mistake and I'm still trying to get back on track. Every time I'm in a film I'm determined it's the last I'm in then I'll fall into a conversation with someone and we'll cook up a new scheme. Basically it's gone on for 20 years but I'm hoping to pull it to a close shortly.
"I'm not going, 'Where are the films?' because I don't want there to be films. It's not like I'm looking for opportunities to do things. I would like an opportunity to have a good sleep and get on with some writing."
