The "Legally Blonde" star is returning to acting after her marriage to actor Ryan Phillipe ended last year, contactmusic.com reports. She is struggling to balance her work and private life.
She said: "The next film I'm about to do is the first full movie I've done in two-and-a-half years because it's hard with small children. I do feel torn. It's agony.
"Any mother or father will know it's so hard to deal with just the guilt of leaving your kids. I'm trying to work close to my house so my kids can stay in school and we can have a nice, stable life."
