French actress Juliette Binoche is putting her career on hold for the rest of the year - to take her young son sightseeing.

The CHOCOLAT star has been busy working on a series of French movies in the past year, and now she feels she must teach her nine-year-old son RAPHAEL all about French history.

She says, "When I get back home I'm planning to take my son to see castles because I think it's a way to learn about our history and to be together to see beautiful things.

"You have to take time for your kids."
