She said: “I don’t think two people can work all the time in show business and stay married.
“I was in a number one show. I had my own deal. I got to do Broadway. I got to do musical theater. I got to do cartoon voices.
“I did everything you can do in this business, and then I had children and it’s like, ‘I’m not going to chase this fame thing.’
“I wanted to drive my kids to school. I wanted to be there for their birthdays and bring cupcakes and donuts and do the school festivals and all that, and I did.
“I got to teach in their art class and so it was a different life then and I was very happy to do it.”
NCIS season 18 is expected to return later this year.
