"For women who have a family, it's a big decision because of the expectations on women, and the expectations they have on themselves.

"I also don't know that women do a good enough job of championing each other, and that's something I've been thinking about a lot myself.

"I always try to hire the best man for the job, and most of them happen to be women!"

She adds: "I've got a screenplay that I'm trying to cast and finance – one never knows.

"I would love to work with Marion Cottilard one day; I really love Reese Witherspoon and Elle Fanning is wonderful.

"There are so many wonderful actors and actresses; that's where it would be hard to say goodbye to making films, as much as it's a pain in the neck.

"I've had an amazing, miraculous career where not only have I been a female making movies, I've also done something that men would like to do, which is just tell my own stories."
