Veteran actress Kathy Bates is eyeing retirement once her hit US TV drama Harry's Law ends.
The Oscar winner has enjoyed a long film career with roles in Misery, Titanic and About Schmidt and she has also scooped up nine Emmy Award nominations.
And the 68-year-old tells Star magazine it's time to think about calling it quits.
"I'm thinking about stopping when Harry's Law finishes," she says.
"I would like to move on to other things in the time I have left. Writing, painting, maybe travelling and finally learning how to speak French while I've still got my wits about me."I've had some wonderful opportunities. I'm really proud of what I've done."
