The "" star admits she once thought about letting a director cast the five year old, her child with the late , with her in a film, but ultimately decided against the opportunity.

She tells Reuters, "There were a few very sweet, very light scenes that were more about playing.

But then (I) realized if that's something she's interested in, then it's a choice she can make in her own life. It's something she's never expressed interest in doing.
