Actually Jennifer gave an interview recently where she discussed her career. The interviewer went on about all the interest and fuss surrounding her after P&P and how it was expected she'd shoot to stardom. She said she chose to shy away from bigger projects and the limelight. She describes herself as "not ambitious" and says she loves acting but her family is her priority. Love her and her values!

Too bad P&P didn't make a star the way it did Colin Firth. She's terrific!
