Emma Thompson - Emma Thompson Insists On Long Career Breaks For Family Time

British actress Emma Thompson insists on taking long breaks from her work to spend time with her family.

Thompson has a teenage daughter, Gaia, with her husband Greg Wise and the couple also adopted a son, Tindyebwa Agaba, in 2003 when he was 16.

The Harry Potter star insists it is vital to take time out from her career to spend time with her loved ones.

She tells Britain's Daily Express newspaper, "You've got to work enough to earn your living, then just stop. That's what I do, just stop for long periods so that my daughter gets used to having me at home. Everyone's different. Some people take their kids to work with them but I don't. I've always thought they can have their own lives and it seems a bit mean to drag them into yours."
