Evolved actress Angelina Jolie says after the debut of her upcoming film Unbroken, she's done with acting completely. In a recent interview with Du Jour magazine, the 39-year-old elaborated on her decision to stop being in front of the camera.
"I’ve never been comfortable as an actor; I’ve never loved being in front of the camera," revealed the newly married star. "I didn’t ever think I could direct but I hope I’m able to have a career at it because I’m much happier."
So far, Jolie's directorial career appears to be heading down a promising path. Unbroken, which she directed, is already generating a lot of Oscar buzz. The film focuses on Louis Zamperini, the Olympic runner who survived two years as a Japanese prisoner during WWII.
In regards to her experience directing the highly anticipated film, the mother of six opened up saying, "Directing is very different from acting because it takes more than two years of your life, so it has to matter - really matter - in a different way."
While the exit from acting may not be a shock to some, especially considering her endeavors as a humanitarian, we can trust that Jolie’s work will be in theaters for years to come.
Perhaps her final acting role will be appropriately alongside husband Brad Pitt. The two will be starring in the love story, By The Sea, a film about a dancer and her writer husband in the 1970s. The film is a family affair as Jolie wrote and is directing the film, while 13-year-old son Maddox is working on set as a production assistant.
We can handle Jolie quitting acting so long as Brad doesn’t follow in her footsteps. The gorgeous couple can’t both be behind the camera!
