Single mom Liv Tyler decided to take a bit of a break from acting following her 2008 split from her husband Royston Langdon. Now back to work on the set of the upcoming flick Super, the 30-year-old beauty reveals that she put her time off to very good use.
“I’m always working but I took a lot of the past two years off to be with my son and I was going through a lot of personal changes,” Liv, who is mom to 5-year-old son Milo, tells Grazia. “I love being a mum and it was important I got to spend those years that are so precious and will never come back again with my son Milo.”
Though she’s called her divorce a heartbreaking experience, Liv says now that it taught her some things as well.
“I feel grateful for the life lessons that I’ve learnt. I definitely feel like I’ve grown up a lot and I’ve gotten to know myself in a new way. Life’s interesting, it’s filled with surprises and, just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, it throws you a curve ball.”
