The Juno actress, who has two daughters, Violet, 4, and 11-month-old Serephina, with husband Ben Affleck, admits it's hard to balance her acting career with being a mom, which are both full-time jobs.

She said: “There’s an internal battle. I need to work, I need to work, I need to work and I need to be home with my kids and the kids win. It's about getting the kids up and fed, getting one to school, getting the other down for a nap, going to the grocery store, picking one up from school, getting the other one down for another nap, cooking dinner… I live my life at these two extremes. I’m either a full-time stay-at-home mom or a full-time actress.”

In 2007, Jennifer appeared in Broadway play Cyrano de Bergerac and while she enjoyed every minute of doing it, she won’t do it again because of the unsociable hours. She added to W magazine: “Theatre is hard on my family. You can’t tell your kids, ‘I’m exhausted. Wake up with someone else today.’ ”
