She's lived all over the country since the beginning of her spectacular acting career, but now Halle Berry admits she’s no longer interested in that kind of lifestyle.

During an interview with People, the “X-Men” star revealed she decided to take the role in the new CBS series “Extant” to be closer to her family.

“I no longer can afford to have the gypsy life,” Halle stated. “This [show] allows me to stay home and still do something really creative and cool that I love.”

Also discussing how other working women help her get through the long days, Miss Berry stated, “I know I’m not alone. Women have done this forever. We are built to multitask. When you think, ‘How can I not sleep, nurse and work?’ you just do."

She added, “We are machines like that. We are built to do this.”
