Carrie Anne-Moss is coming to the television screen, with her new show ‘Vegas’, co-starring Dennis Quaid. In an interview with Hitfix, Carrie talks about how the Matrix affected her career, and how she made her choices after that not based on monetary and financial reasons.
When asked about the Matrix series affording her freedom, she says, “It's been a blessing. Oh my God, yes. It also gave me the financial freedom to raise my children and not work. And leave them with a nanny. I feel so blessed I've been able to stay home with them. "The Matrix" gave me that, you know what I mean? That's a huge deal for me. I've worked a little bit, but I've been able to be choosy. I'll tell you something, I know at the end of my life I will look back and know that that was a gift, it won't be about, oh I made that movie, oh I made that other movie. That was kind of the motto of my life, what's important. I'm 9 years in and I can tell you it's okay to step out too, it's all about balance.”
She also talks about bringing her kids to set, saying, “I won't bring them. I don't work every day. I just don't think it's a place for kids. I think they're happier at home. I remember when they were younger I brought my kids on set and they loved my trailer and they wanted candy. I don't want them to associate it with that. They have their lives, and I go to work for a little bit. I don't know, maybe I'll have them come, but I haven't really done that except when I was nursing.”
