"KRISTEN KREUK ‘MOVING OUT’ OF ACTING? No. But she’s definitely branching out. “Making our own projects and making sure that there are writers and producers that are women will [allow us] to tell stories that are true to us.” The actress added she’s recently created a production company with a friend that will focus on making “movies that have women in them that I want to see made…. I’d like to move out of acting at some point,” she said."
"Kristin Kreuk, star of “Smallville” and the upcoming CW series “Beauty and the Beast,” hopes to one day retire from acting and focus on producing, she told a Comic-Con audience on Friday.
Kreuk did not intimate this move was imminent, more that eventually she wants to transition into making more movies through her production company, Parvati Creative Inc.
“I’d like to move out of acting at a certain point,” she said. “Then I can’t do all of the silly movies that I’ve been doing that are wonderful and can start making them. I can tell the stories that have women in them that I wanna tell.”
Kreuk’s yearning to produce reflects a larger theme of the panel she was on, “Powerful Women in Pop Culture,” which featured a sextet of women who kick ass on the silver screen and the big screen discussing the massive gains made by women – and the challenges they still face."
