Angelina Jolie has opened up about her future plans to stop her career as an actress during an interview with Britain’s Channel 4 News.

“I will do some films and I am so fortunate to have the job, it’s a really lucky profession to be a part of and I enjoy it,” Angelina continued. “But if it went away tomorrow I would be very happy to be home with the children. I wake up in the morning as a mum and I turn on the news like everybody else and I see what’s happening and I want to be part of the world in a positive way.”

Check out what else Angelina had to say during the twenty minute interview, including her views on her work as a humanitarian, the Syrian conflict, and more.

# 7

# 8

# 9

her movies suck anyway.

if they quit together by next year that would be great. KTS bombed badly. what happended to Brad’s so called star power? this is a sign for WWZ also. so sick of her leg pose and his homeless man shower hungry look.

Angie has no PR (or peer) and she didn’t say she was quitting only she’d be fine if she did. she will one day,she has so many other interests. Why is it so hard for people to report what she says correctly, and why out of all she has to say is that bit emphasized? It’s really annoying.

I think that it is a shame that the title for this post is about how Angelina Jolie plans on quitting acting. The video is so much more than that. It’s about her dedication and the UN’s dedication to helping other people. I believe Angelina Jolie is a beautiful person because of this dedication.

She’s a great woman! So beautiful inside and out. I would miss her so much acting but I so understand why she would leave it. She’s my favorite in everything. She is such an unselfish person. Love ya Angelina you are the best!

You’re right, stupid title for this thread. Now when she doesn’t “quit” next year,people will claim she lied. Sometimes I think the world doesn’t deserve Angelina Jolie.

That is the best news yet. Now if she would only disappear from public life i would be very happy.

this is the best news yet. Now if she would just disappear from public life i would be happy.

may as well stay home

Hey thats not what I said.

A class act, being happy with the work she has accomplished. Staying at home, taking care of your family is a reward onto itself. Others in the profession should take note.

beautiful and extremely intelligent

OFF YOUR BIG FAT BLINK BLINK SEE THE MOVIE
BUY THE PERFUME DONT WAIT FOR FANS TO DO THE HARD

@alana: ITA. Where the heck does it actually say she is quitting acting? She said if it went away tomorrow she’s fine with it and it has been fun and she’s grateful for it. The headline and focus of the article is so misleading. So pathetic of you, Jared.

@Boring:

If she bores you so much, why come onto a thread about her. You moron.

The pathetic thing is that even if she did disappear from public life, idiots like you would still come onto threads about her to comment.
