“Without a Trace’s” Poppy Montgomery happy to take a break

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Working moms have one of the hardest jobs in the world, which is why actress Poppy Montgomery tells us it was nice to take a long break after the cancellation of ‘Without A Trace.’ Plus, she was just dang tired!

‘It’s good to take a break and I think creatively it has to happen because you have to let yourself process seven years of playing one character,’ she notes. Montgomery has since moved on to other projects, but raising her three-year-old son with boyfriend Adam Kaufman remains a top priority.

‘It’s hard for any working mom. I don’t know how my mother did it, honestly, and she had three kids and not as much help as I have. It’s a really delicate balancing act all the time. Any woman who works and has kids, I take my hat off to them because I think it’s very challenging,’ notes the Australian actress. ‘You want to make sure your kid gets enough time and nurture from you but you also want to earn money and have a life.’
