Halle Berry says motherhood has ''wildly affected'' her life.

The 45-year-old actress made her four-year-old Nahla - whose father is Halle's ex-partner Gabriel Aubry - her main priority after giving birth in 2008, but she is keen star in more films to show her daughter that working hard is ''really important''.

She said: ''It's wildly affected my life. I haven't worked as much since I had my daughter. I have another priority and she's it.

''But I do want to send her the clear message that working is important and doing something that you love - that validates you, or makes you feel you are giving yourself to the world - is really important, so I will keep working.''

Halle is planning to relocate to France with her French actor fiance Oliver Martinez because there is ''more privacy'' in the European country and she is ''very concerned'' about raising Nahla in the US.

When asked if she have plans to move to France, she replied to Britain's Hello! magazine: ''I'm hoping. I think it would be a much more normal way of life for my family. We'd have more privacy and more laws there to protect my daughter.

''I'm really very concerned about her growing up in the US, with the way things are and the laws they don't have in place to protect children.''
