Steven Spielberg has revealed he almost quit directing after making the Oscar winner ‘Schindler’s List’.

The film, which went on to win seven Oscars when it was released in 1993, took such an emotional toll on the director that the thought of returning to work filled him with dread.

He tells The Hollywood Reporter: "I just didn’t. I could not.”

“I was sad and isolated, and as well-received and successful as that movie was, I think it was the trauma of telling the story and forming the Shoah Foundation."

“I started to wonder, was 'Schindler’s List' going to be the last film I would direct?”

By then, he already had the mega-hits 'Jaws', 'E.T', 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' and 'Jurassic Park' under his belt, so it would be understandable if he felt he had nothing left to prove. As it was, it would be another four years before he released another film, the mega-hit ‘Jurassic Park: The Lost World’.
