Tilda Swinton has sparked speculation she is ready to
quit movies after revealing her decision to become an actress was “a major
mistake”.

The Academy Award-winner, who is receiving huge praise
for her portrayal of a troubled mother in new movie We Need To Talk About
Kevin, has hinted she is ready to leave Hollywood.

In a new interview, Tilda declared, “I’m hoping to pull
it to a close shortly” and admits she’s “trying to get back on track” and focus
on writing.

Britain’s Daily Express quoted the star as saying, “I’m
not really interested in acting. I’ve given up waiting for an epiphany of
interest to strike.”

“Acting is a red herring and a major mistake and I’m
still trying to get back on track. Every time I’m in a film I’m determined it’s
the last I’m in then I’ll fall into a conversation with someone and we’ll cook
up a new scheme. Basically it’s gone on for 20 years but I’m hoping to pull it
to a close shortly.”

“I’m not going, ‘Where
are the films?’ because I don’t want there to be films. It’s not like I’m
looking for opportunities to do things. I would like an opportunity to have a
good sleep and get on with some writing.”

Talk About Kevin is screening at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival at 9pm, 15
