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.

    We all know which actress in hollywood REALLY needs to quit acting: Rom Com Aging Queen Jen Insecure Aniston!

  • Tomas

    I dunno .I don’t belive she will really leave acting. Wait and watch she will be back in a short time. She and Brad Pitt both said they would not get married until all people had a right and now they are planning a wedding soon.
    I have a feeling they are trying to upstage the news that Will and Kate have a baby. Right now Kate and Wills baby is the news and Jolie and Brad want to upstage that. Silly people.

  • Alissa

    Hey, Angie… Don’t let the door hit your flat bony ass when you leave.

    Is she fucking that dude? She sure isn’t with Brad any more.

    Love,

    Did anyone saw The Soup today? I was listening/watching and Fran Dresser was a guest. There was a rapid fire quiz, Fran was asked if you were deserted on a desert island who would want to be with? answer, Brad Pitt, q #2 who is your secret crush? answer, Brad Pitt. One of the guys said, you would have to fight Angelina. Fran answered something about skinny, did anyone heard what FD said?

    @Tomas: teenage means not now not next year not even 2 -3 years mad is the only who will be getting teen age year in 2-3 years pax in only nine the reast took at least 5 years and more She just saying it in figurative type.

    @Tomas: congrats to the couple. But they are not even in movies or are they so what would BandA think of them in any way of a type? crazy people public boards are not subsititue of doctor visits.

    @Bea: She is not a PR actress. She is very good and talented. She did not get famous instantly, she had to work hard for it. She has an Oscar and some of her performences are fantastic.
    You wannw know who are PR made actress?
    Ashely Greene and freida Pinto.
    They are both ugly and untalented. They will never end up having a career like Angelina. You need to get her kind of career.freida pinto especially. She disseed the most beautiful and talented actress in India, Aishwarya Rai. Sorry but slum girl is a nobody. Jolie and Rai are icons in their industry.

    I remember what Tyson said months ago. That’s why I said he may just be playing it up because of the old rumor. Tyson was doing coke…plus RG and her mother had him convinced he was bipolar and he was on Lithium and a boat load of anti-psychotic drugs. All those blows he took to the head boxing don’t help matters much…

    Actually, I believe she said she’ll retire when the durrlets are a little older. But this mantis gets our hopes up every year with this shitt, and yet we still see her Handsome Squidward mug. But since Leg-gate there might be some truth to it. She knows she’s a just a colossal joke now, not to mention Pitty with his embarrassing Chanel disaster and KTS bombing. She’ll continue to do the only thing that gets her some positive attention -fauxmanitarian work.

    She is still my role model. So great, poised, passionate and intelligent..makes me happy (though she being so pale and skinny still worries me)

  • carry

    I dislike that bittchy woman but this is something probably someone posted so I have to copy it here because some of it I agree in most but not all consideration not bad. I am not meaning in bad way….
    1. Stop trying to chase the Oscar. The public can feel the desperation from miles away.
    2. Stick to the original idea of a book or a script, and stop with all the political analysis.
    3. Clean up. That means bathe, shave and cut the hair.
    4. When promoting a movie, PROMOTE the movie, not your personal life. If interview asks any questions, just state that you are only here to promote the movie itself.
    5. Stop traveling all over like some damn military mobile unit. Put some roots down, and stay there. Let those kids have a somewhat normal life….there is time left to turn that all around.
    4. Either Marry Jolie or Don’t. Just stop using the sacrament of Marriage as a PR tool. It’s getting ridiculous and redundant, and it also very dis-respectful to the woman that you are engaged to, when you constantly make up excuses, giving sound bites to feed the media frenzy.
    3. Stop talking about the legalization of drugs, the legalization of gay marriage and STOP with the constant BASHING of the USA.. You are only doing what you’ve done to your family, alienating a lot of people that do not have the same ideas as yours. You want to support these things than do it quietly without fanfare. You’re only losing those bible belt fans, along with fans in the USA. We get it. Shut your mouth about US.
    2. Do not do another product endorsement. EVER.
    1. Stop whining in all your interviews how you’re growing old, or that being an actor is such hard work or those big size lottery paychecks are not coming your way anymore. That is why your paid those big bucks. No one likes a whiny, sniveling, multi-millionaire…especially in times like these when people are hurting and wondering if they will have a job, a house, etc.

    Angie love you too but stop saying quit acting you said it before and don’t say it again this is some of the things they use against you because most of them want go on until they can…

  • carry

    @tamsin: it is hard for your brain as always the problem is but some fans just be lurking. Not sometimes I lurk I post. Why not you take IQ classes it is benificial for you .

  • Maria

    solid interviewer. she asked the tough questions.

  • carry

    @Rose: he still is crazy. I read another story about his apearnce where he said I love you Brad can I get a job? I give you my wife somethign… He change his story whenever he want…. He must think that brought him attention. Dude is defiently in something STILL.

  • megatit

    @tamsin
    Lol, where IS the twelve year old with her calculator?
    Yeah, I think she senses their loss of cool points. Good point about playing the victim. She sure ran BBT under the bus after the divorce. She’s just trying to re-work her image, that’s all.
    Pretty quiet on the loon front, no? After the KTS bomb, I can see these creatures sitting around a fire singing hymns to the Loon gods to bring good luck to Brad for WWZ, ala Hobbit.

    Gay Tamsin aka megatit is more boring than a movie of maniston

  • geez

    Angie has said many times that she will make less movie or quit acting when kids reach teenager year if necessary. Why is still a headline every time she says it? She is not quitting now.

  • geez

    Mike Tyson is such a loser, he keeps changing his story and milking on Brad.

  • iing

    first of all he shouldnt showercry about jen and justin and since the parade interview last year we all know he is jealous , cant let go of jen and still hasnt moved on and not happy even with all the 100 kids he had out of WEDLOCK

    10 THINGS PITT COULD DO TO TURN HIS FLEDGING CAREER AROUND

    1. Stop trying to chase the Oscar. The public can feel the desperation from miles away.
    2. Stick to the original idea of a book or a script, and stop with all the political analysis.
    3. Clean up. That means bathe, shave and cut the hair.
    4. When promoting a movie, PROMOTE the movie, not your personal life. If interview asks any questions, just state that you are only here to promote the movie itself.

    3. Stop talking about the legalization of drugs, the legalization of gay marriage and STOP with the constant BASHING of the USA.. You are only doing what you’ve done to your family, alienating a lot of people that do not have the same ideas as yours. You want to support these things than do it quietly without fanfare. You’re only losing those bible belt fans, along with fans in the USA. We get it. You hate the USA. Fine. Live in Europe, but shut your mouth about US.
    2. Do not do another product endorsement. EVER.
    1. Stop whining in all your interviews how you’re growing old, or that being an actor is such hard work or those big size lottery paychecks are not coming your way anymore.

    GET OVER IT

  • shi shi shi-

    never thought she had a job at the first place to even retire from.

    btw she looks glassy-eyed, shiny, waxy and sweaty in that clip (i couldn’t watch the whole thing – she annoys the crap out of me). I like where she said she lives in a country where she can protect her children from whatever. What country is that? They don’t really live anyway – always flitting about in their private plane.

    Disappointed by your title Jared.

    Thumb up Thumb down +20

    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.

    Someone is still living in H1ll on Earth,when she see her ex is very happy life with his new wife and their children.

    Money can’t buy Love,Happiness,Good – Bad Krama and Real Friends !

  • shi shi shi-

    If memory serves she made that same declaration right after the adoption of Pax and again after the birth of Knox and Viv, before immediately signing on for another NINE films. This narcisstic wench is an actress. She plays the roll that she needs to in public when circumstances demand. And please…don’t even get me started on Brad’s People Magazine interview this week. We’re supposed to believe that he calls her “Mama?” Not that I buy that for a second,but the day my husband calls me “Mama” is the day I file for divorce. I detest these two posers. And oh yeah, Brad had a movie released this week so it was predictably time to hear from them again.

  • shi shi shi-

    For crying out loud. Angelina, after birthing your children YEARS ago, this whole wedding is not as romantic nor meaningful as it could have been YEARS ago. And, you cannot Do A Brad, unless you first use the same script and film a Chanel No.5 commercial like he did. THAT would be doing Brad. LOL Hahahaha. You two could have a new career as comediennes. In fact, in a way, you both have become very funny and have been amusing many for a long time now. What is next on your agenda? Am sure you will think of something odd.

  • Observer2

    Congrats to Angelina. She wanted her movie to start conversations and for it to have accomplished this initiative, is more than terrific.

    I see that Angelina doing something good has sent the LOONIFERS over the edge because they didn’t watch the entire video. They can’t. It’s too complicated for them to understand.

    It’s above a first grade level of education.

    Angelina is happy and doing for others and that drives the LOONIFERS bonkers.

    Bonk away. LOL.
