London, Aug 10 : French actress Juliette Binoche has revealed that her role in the romantic comedy 'Dan In Real Life' ignited her passion for acting again.
Binoche had made the decision to quit her acting career and give it all up as she approached her 40s, as she felt that she no longer had the confidence.
"There was a time four years ago when I thought I was going to stop acting," she reveals," Daily Express quoted her as saying.
"I had no passion any more, I felt no desire. And then I thought, OK, the only way I can get through this is to focus on taking care of my kids.
"I didn't work during that time. I don't know why I found myself there but moments like that are important. They're necessary," she said.
But for Binoche, 44, 'Dan In Real Life', helped her to rediscover her lost passion, and gave her confidence to star opposite Jude Law in the 2007 drama 'Breaking And Entering'.
