Sobieski Quit Hollywood After Parents Split
Eyes Wide Shut star Leelee Sobieski took a three-year break from acting to cope with her parents' split.
The young actress was stunned when her mum and dad divorced in 2001 and decided to stop acting for the sake of her mental health.
She explains, "I don't think that you should really work (in movies) when you don't feel good in your own skin. "If you go out and play someone crazy or violent or deranged, when you come back to yourself you're not sure who you are. I had a strong family life and then it just vanished." (KL/V/GES)
