LOS ANGELES: Actress Renée Zellweger, who took a six-year hiatus from Hollywood, says she was "fatigued" and wasn't taking the time she required to recover between projects.

After the movie "My Own Love Song" was released in 2010, Zellweger went off the grid. The 47-year-old has now appeared on the cover of British Vogue's July issue, reports eonline.com.

"As a creative person, saying no to that wonderful once-in-a-lifetime project is hard. But I was fatigued and wasn't taking the time I needed to recover between projects, and it caught up with me," Zellweger, who starred in nearly 20 films between 2000 and 2010, told the magazine.

"I got sick of the sound of my own voice: it was time to go away and grow up a bit."

During her six-year break, the actress recalled: "I found anonymity, so I could have exchanges with people on a human level and be seen and heard, not be defined by this image that precedes me when I walk into a room. You cannot be a good storyteller if you don't have life experiences, and you can't relate to people."

Zellweger returns to the big screen this fall in "Bridget Jones's Baby", co-starring Patrick Dempsey and Colin Firth.
