She's widely regarded as one of the most successful directors of her generation, having helmed some of the country's highest-grossing movies such as "A Second Chance," "Crazy Beautiful You," and "It Takes a Man and a Woman."

But Cathy Garcia-Molina has confirmed her plans to quit directing altogether, revealing that she has no intention of extending her current contract that ends on August 2019. 

At a press conference held on Saturday ahead of the release of her newest flick, "My Perfect You," Molina explained that she wants to dedicate more time to her kids.

"It's time," she acknowledged. "I have served 25 years of my life sa showbiz, it's time I give it to my children." 

In the remaining months of her contract, Molina shared that she is set to do four more movies, including one that will partner her again with the love team of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. 

Molina, who began her career in 1992, is best known for romantic comedies, some of which left its mark in pop culture. 

There's her widely quoted "One More Chance," her trilogy of movies with John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo, and her beloved family-comedy drama "Four Sisters and a Wedding." 

"My Perfect You," which was supposedly her final movie she said, will premiere in cinemas nationwide this Wednesday. 

It follows the story of Burn (Gerald Anderson), a broken-hearted man looking to start over, and Abi (Pia Wurtzbach), a hostel owner whom he meets while on vacation.
