She once said in an interview:

My daughter Charlotte is absolutely the most important thing to me. My family comes first and I'm so grateful to them that they let me go off and make films. But, you know, I find it very difficult to leave them. I hate it. I have had therapy and found it helpful in dealing with the guilt I've felt about leaving them. Going to New Zealand to make Avatar when my daughter was applying to colleges almost killed me.

As of now, she is enjoying her adult life actually she is loving her adulthood.

I like getting older – it's interesting. I don't think it's attractive to have a taut face with a 65-year-old's body. I find that look scary. My mother was a great beauty and she never succumbed to plastic surgery. She thought it was best to grow old gracefully. I feel the same. We change ourselves by looking back and trying to stay young instead of moving forward.  

She was last seen in the 2017 movie Jasper and for six episodes of the series, The Defenders and is soon to be screening in the two parts of Avatar in years 2020 and 2021.
