But Jennifer is now taking time to evaluate her next moves in Hollywood, and won't just accept anything as she admits that since getting married to Justin Theroux, she's less inclined to leave her husband for work unless she's mad about the part.

"This is a time when I'm not completely sure what I'm doing. I'm at this sort of crossroads trying to figure out what inspires me deep in my core," she told Marie Claire magazine. "What used to make me tick is not necessarily making me tick any more ... The most challenging thing right now is trying to find what it is that makes my heart sing."

The 47-year-old adds that she has to feel a real passion to take on a role that requires her to travel.

"All I know is that I feel completely seen, and adored, in no matter what state," she smiled. "There's no part of me that I don't feel comfortable showing, exposing. And it brings forth the best part of myself, because I care about him so much. And he's such a good person. It hurts me to think of anything hurting him."
