British actress Sienna Guillory gave up her Hollywood career and her life in Los Angeles and moved back to the U.K. with her family as she was struggling to cope following the birth of her twins.

The Resident Evil: Apocalypse star became a mother to two girls, Valentina and Lucia, with her husband Enzo Cilenti in 2011, but the 38 year old admits she felt unable to juggle her acting work with her home life.

The family has now relocated to her native Britain to be closer to Guillory's relatives, and she admits parenting twins has been much harder than she anticipated.

Fighting back tears, she tells Britain's Weekend magazine, "Why doesn't anyone tell you how hard it is? Before you have children you think parenting is about your capacity for love and you say, 'I can do that'. Then you have two at once and you feel like they both need you all the time, and it always feels like you're neglecting one; it just breaks your heart."

Guillory goes on to reveal the family moved back to the U.K. because "I needed my mother", adding, "(In Britain) you can walk to the shops rather than driving. I missed British newspapers and I didn't want my children to grow up in a place where they use the term Mexican in a pejorative way, which happens in L.A.!"
