Angelina Jolie Talks Plans to Quit Acting in New Video Interview

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 have enjoyed being an actress. I am so grateful to the job and I have had great experiences and I have even be able to tell stories and be a part of stories that mattered and I have done things for fun, but…” the 37-year-old actress said.

“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.

She is so well spoken and has so many interests besides acting. She doesn’t need the fame which is good become so many celebrities get caught up in the fame and their looks and they become a joke. I can see Angie doing less acting and more aid work like Audrey Hepburn. What a wonderful woman. I’m glad she has a man that appreciates her and has the same life goals. And I love the importance they put in raising their children. Great woman, super mom, lovely couple.

to the jentard who said angie needs to retire soon and let other actresses take the center-stage cause she’s just a pr-fabricated celeb…………….

speaking of pr-sustained pseudo-celeb, everyone in hollywood knows its’ chinifer maniston whose so-called career is being run by her pr dogs. the ugly old hag can’t act yet her pr team and her rabid fans she’s that relevant. did i mention she’s plain boring? lol

Grateful for Angelina Jolie’s support for UK team of experts being deployed to help survivors of rape in #Syrian conflict

William Hague William Hague ‏@WilliamJHague

She and I will campaign together next year during UK G8 Presidency, calling for new international action to stop rape in war
Trolls can whine all the want but people of important respect Angelina’s work as Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

omg! so much different from the bimbo, Katie Holmes. It would be interesting to put these two together and see what happens. LOL

It would be like an intelligent person (Angie) talking with a toddler???

I would listen to Angelina anytime! Listening and watching Katie Holmes is such annoying comedy I guess.

One more thing, Sec of State William Hague said he decided to start this campaign against rape after watching Angelina’s movie “In the Land of Blood and Honey”. If there is one less woman raped during war because of the campaign than what a truly great successful that movie would be.

Hey, look at me!

Whatever Jolie is on, I love it!

isn’t she wonderful? Proud to be a fan and suppoter.

Maybe she give up winning an Oscar?

I called it! @ 12/04/2012 at 12:52 am

@Bora: Maybe she already have an Oscar….

Jared, why such misleading title? Sometimnes I wonder why I continue to add to Jared’s fortune by coming to his site. He is definitely anti JPs.

@gia: How ironic with your username

Love the JoliePitts @ 12/04/2012 at 1:23 am

I love this video! It is Awesome! Thank you Jared for posting it.

God bless our sweet Angelina.
Brad described his “Mama” correctly….he said “she is a Force…..” And look at all the good she is doing in this world.
How amazing!
She had no idea what a great influence her movie would become as she was compelled to write it and direct it and share it with the world last year. And I can never forget all the incredible support Brad gave her. They share in this together. As she has said in the past. “Brad is the name that enables me to accomplish so much.”
And here it is, a scant year later after the debut of her incredibly moving film, and the UK Foreign Secretary is effusive in his praise of her work and singing her praises and explaining what a tremendous “force” she is in being the inspiration behind his initiative to make Rape in war a crime against humanity.
“Her movie was so clear…….it removes all excuse for doing nothing.” He says. And how true his words are.
To see how the Great Spirit is directing her life and Brad’s life is a wonder to behold. What incredible contacts they both are making.
May the Great Spirit continue to bless you and move in you in such wonderful and exciting and beautiful ways, sweet Angelina. May you and Brad be abundantly blessed in many, many beautiful and unheard of and incredible ways and wisely guided by the Beautiful Spirit Who resides in both of you continuing to unite you as One as you two and your beautiful, loving family continue to reach out and help so many in all the ways that matter to make life better for everyone you touch.


Angie has said she has no further dreams regarding acting for quite a few years now.


about time! Good riddance…

@I called it!:
What I meant to say was Academy Award for Best Actress……

bless ur heart,and ur family,jolie.

Why in the world is this heading about less then 2 minutes of the interview. And she didn’t bring up anything about quitting acting. She was asked about her humanitarian work being more important then acting. And she said when the kids reached their teenage years she would probably have to give it up because things at home would be more important.

The media twists everything around. And the trolls per usual are here spouting off crap. Angie is well spoken and well respected How refreshing to see someone that can actually articulate a thought. Not slurring her words or practically falling down. She is taken seriously. And her opinions are taken seriously.

And on a superficial note she is very beautiful. Obviously no botox or anything Her face moves and is very expressive.

i just love thumbing down all the comments from our friendly neighborhood trolls without even having to read them. not that any of them having anything to say that’s worthwhile reading.

Oh please! Every year she does her whole “I’m going to retire” or “I’m going to take several years off” nonsense and then never does. Just an attention seeking famewh0re.

Love Angelina @ 12/04/2012 at 4:03 am

That is not true, every time she has said she would be taking a break, she has..people just don’t listen to what she says, and jump to conclusions, and she isn’t saying anything new here, she’s talked about slowing down(and has) for years now,and talked about probably stopping when the kids are older. Nothing new..Media likes to dramatize things.

I love her…beautiful, inside and out!
