The Charlie’s Angels actress also spoke about multitasking her career and cosmetics business Flower Beauty with being a mum-of-two to Frankie, two, and Olive, six months.

‘The acting has to be less and less because it’s too time-consuming. I love it and I don’t want to abandon it, but it can’t be at the forefront right now,’ the actress explains.

‘But it’s also a wonderful, amazing journey to raise two kids that love each other.’
