Model-turned-actress Teresa Palmer has revealed that becoming a mother two years ago has boosted her acting career.

Telling The Sydney Morning Herald about the “real movement towards gender equality” in the industry right now, undoubtedly referring to the discussion surrounding equal pay and the number of female directors within film and television, Teresa admitted that she has “noticed [the movement] personally” since having her son, Bodhi, in 2012.

“I have a child. Many moons back that could hinder your career and now I feel like it has just added to my career,” she explained to the publication at the 2015 AACTAs earlier this week, where she stopped by unexpectedly with her husband, director Mark Webber, who is also the father of her son.

Adelaide-born Teresa is currently in Australia shooting Hacksaw Ridge, directed by Mel Gibson and also starring Andrew Garfield, Vince Vaughn and Ryan Corr.
