Nicole Kidman, Sunday Rose Urban

Nicole Kidman may be following in the footsteps of Joaquin Phoenix—minus the directionally challenged, indecipherable hand scrawls, that is.

During a Sydney press conference today to promote the Down Under premiere of Australia, the Oscar winner hinted she may soon be forsaking the big screen for another round of diaper duty, or other more personal endeavors.

"In terms of my future as an actor and stuff, I don't know," the 41-year-old mother of three said. "I am in a place in my life where...I've had some great opportunities, and I may just choose to have some more children."

Talk about a mother of a calling.

Kidman and husband Keith Urban welcomed their first child together, daughter Sunday Rose, in July. Kidman also has two other children, Isabella and Connor, with ex Tom Cruise.

Not that her maternal instincts are necessarily the cause of what may be her final bow.

"I've no idea what is in my future, but I am very at peace with where I want to be," she said. "There are many things I want to do besides act."

As it is, it would be hard for Kidman to top her latest thespian experience.

"This is a once in a lifetime thing," the Australian native said of her role in the Baz Luhrmann epic. "I mean, rarely do you get to make a film that you've dreamt of making since you were little...I haven't really had a film that's done that in a big way."

In any case, should Kidman indeed jump Hollywood ship, she's got at least one more project to get through first: Just last week, she signed on to produce and star in the adaptation of The Danish Girl, in which she will play the world's first post-op transsexual male. Charlize Theron plays her wife.

If you're gonna go out, go big.
