While Sosie loves life on the open road it's unlikely she's packing in acting for good. She was a sure-fire hit in her latest project with Kate Winslet and likely to have further success as she follows in her famous parent's footsteps.

Sosie said she was quitting acting!

He suffered a very public breakdown during a slump in his own career and he didn't want his children to suffer that.
