She has only done voiceover work - for animated movies Charlotte's Web and Ant Bully - since wrapping 2004 movie Ocean's Twelve. Roberts will spend the rest of the year preparing for her theatre debut in Three Days Of Rain which opens next March - and then retire from acting for good.

How 'bout a one-person Broadway revival of "Victor/Victoria"?

She (he?) played Margaret Thatcher for years, and quite brilliantly. S/he'll do fine.

This might be her fifth time quitting Hollywood, and what is this, her 4th husband? So, what, are we supposed to give her admiration farewell tour when she does her Broadway play?
