My kids made me confident: Pfieffer:

Michelle Pfeiffer has revealed it was her children who helped her develop into a confident person.

The actress has recently made a return to film after a four-year hiatus, during which she remained largely out of the public eye to devote time to her family.

Pfeiffer raises Claudia, 19, and 17-year-old John with husband David E Kelley, and says becoming a mother helped her to evolve into a more positive woman.

"I've overcome a lot of things that were holding me back in life, where you're not confident enough in yourself and so worried about things that you become very controlling at times," she's told the UK edition of OK! magazine.

"I've learnt to take things more easily in life and having children and being a mother has taught me so much on that level," she says.

Pfeiffer also believes she's gained wisdom with age. The 54-year-old star thinks nothing is more important than hindsight.

"There comes the age when you realise life is limited," she said. "People around you are seriously ill or even die. You appreciate we should enjoy every day as it comes."

Do you agree that becoming a mother helps you evolve into a more positive woman?

I was thinking she will never return to the big screen. I had to write my essays online just because I was rude to my family when I heard she was leaving. I apologized but now I will be throwing a party for them.
