Angelina Jolie is not giving up acting: 'I have a few more roles in me'
The Internet shuddered worldwide today due to reports that Angelina Jolie would be quitting acting. And while it’s true that the busy mother of six, humanitarian, and director of the upcoming Unbroken plans to spend more time behind the camera than in front of it, she’s not quite done yet. “I see myself moving into directing more and doing much less as an actor,” Jolie tells EW. “I have a few more in me, ones I have been developing for some time, so I will do those before I step away.”
One of those will be in next year’s By the Sea, a film Jolie wrote, directed and starred in alongside new husband Brad Pitt. “It was a new experience as I had to direct myself and Brad in very dramatic and emotional scenes,” she says of the relationship drama set in 1970s France. But it was also a great joy to be back on set with him after ten years.” The couple first paired up in 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith. “[By the Sea] is a very different film than our first. It’s heavy. We really had to help each other. And we did.”
