She returned to the stage in 2005 in "The Philadelphia Story" at the Old Vic opposite Kevin Spacey. The following year she played Lady Macbeth in "Macbeth" as part of Shakespeare in the Park in New York. She won her second Tony award for portraying three characters in Stoppard's "The Coast of Utopia" triptych, which ran from October 2006 until May 2007.

Living in the Netherlands, i have seen recently almost all your performances in movie, series etc. I do not know what happened to me, but I am completely upside down of your appearances and character. (I am 63, married, 5 children and 5 grandchildren). I should come and visit you, make all the way from the Netherlands to Upstate New York just for that. See your husband, children and your way of living. I know this is hardly impossible. You want to keep your privacy and I can understand that for 100%. Probable this is the only way to reach you and hopefully to get a respons. Thank God you are NOT a Hollywood star but just a nice and wonderful person. I realy hope you will live long and happy in your family. God blesses you and saves you in this mad world.
