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.

    Thing is, she’s been saying this exact same thing since she adopted Maddox. I no longer even believe it because shes said it for years, yet here she is, still acting.. Don’t get m wrong, I think shes a wonderful person, and she does good work, both as a GWA and as an actor but shes said this for years, and its not come to fruition so I don’t believe it now

    She does far fewer movies than she used to so get your facts straight. Another misinformed bated. Angie is always true to her word. It is not her fault that these sights donot print whole truth but only what they think are catchy headline gabloid stories. Angie is working less in movies but more on her humanitarian work and her family. Listen to her people not the tabloid headlines of Jared shallow headline.

    This is the reason that I am Angelina’s fan. The way she never complains nor takes side but only thinks about how to help the victims. If people do a fraction of what Angelina does towards helping other than the world will be a much better place.

    UN Calls On Israel To Open Nuclear Facilities
    by The Associated Press
    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. General Assembly has overwhelmingly approved a resolution calling on Israel to quickly open its nuclear program for inspection and backing a high-level conference to ban nuclear weapons from the Middle East which was just canceled.

    All the Arab nations and Iran had planned to attend the conference in mid-December in Helsinki, Finland, but the United States announced on Nov. 23 that it wouldn’t take place, citing political turmoil in the region and Iran’s defiant stance on nonproliferation. Iran and some Arab nations countered that the real reason for the cancellation was Israel’s refusal to attend.

    The resolution, approved Monday by a vote of 174-6 with 6 abstentions, calls on Israel to join the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty “without further delay” and open its nuclear facilities to inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Those voting “no” were Israel, the U.S., Canada, Marshall Islands, Micronesia and Palau.

    As a Angelina fan myself, I absolutely dont like it when people go over the top with praising her. yeah,shes beautiful and a nice person and pretty smart. but shes not God. shes human. I find some comments very disturbing…borderline pathological celebrity worship syndrome…. anyway, love you,Angie:) looking well!

    audrey f. Says:

    Odd, Tess doesn’t seem bothered by the hate spewed by the trolls,just the praise by fans. No, of course she isn’t god,but she is pretty amazing; never hurts to acknowledge this when she is frequently trashed by haters.

    Did you hear that brad pitts movie BOMBED BIG TIME. GRADED F. What happened to the king of hw? Nobody wanted to see his movie. Only made 6.8 mil on opening weekend on over 2000 screens. Oh wait, I forgot, it is all Jen’s fault. Also, when jolie brought pax home she said she would be taking time off to help him get adjusted, then ran off to film Wanted. Also,, the time to be with her kids are when they are young and need her – not their teen years when they want nothing to do with their parents.

    “Tyson explained that while he and Givens were tending to divorce proceedings in 1988, they would still have sex. “I was getting a divorce. I was going to my lawyer’s office to divorce her that day but I wanted to sneak in a quickie.” Apparently, Givens was also spending time with Pitt. “This particular day, someone beat me to the punch,” Tyson told Bensinger. “I guess Brad got there earlier than I did. I was mad as hell. You should’ve saw his face when he saw me.”

    That picture Elizabeth Vargas put of herself was hilarious. Brad kept asking about that bow around her neck, “What’s that called again?” It was fug. And then he said, “Did you notice our hair is about the same length now give or take an inch?” LOL. Brad always has a good sense of humor when people drag up pix from 20-30 years ago. He didn’t even cringe and most folks would cringe – Vargas sure did.

    Rose Says:

    @audrey f.: Audrey you are so right with the double standard. Fans should not praise Angie but trolls are free to put her down.we can spot the trolls from a mile away don’t care how much they pretends to be fan.

    Now Mike Tyson is trying to make money off BrAds name. Mike T as Married to Robin G about 25 years ago, it was a very short marriage, trolls can look it up. Also, Robin had said she and Brad had a very brief relationship for about 2-3 months. Also, Mike never said before the book he found them in bed, he said before he was coming to see Robin and Brad was leaving and when he saw Brad his manhood fell, lol.

    So keep on living in 25 year old gossip trolls, mike looking to make money with his book. Did you hear anything else about the book, the answer is NO. Everyone and their dog want to bring up Brad’s name and people listen. Same as EF Hutton, when he speaks everyone listen so they can make money.

    @Passing Through: Vargas was really funny, begging the staff to take her unibrow photo. She said she just turned 50, she looks really good and I enjoyed her interview.

    PT, notice Mike Tyson now in need of money so he has to Bring up Brad’s name from 1988. Will this coat-tailing of Brad ever ends.

    Angelina is FABULOUS, it would b a pleasure to read an article and the comments sort of match the topics. The commentors probably hate there ownselves and are frightened to look in the mirror of, fearing who they are talking about is themselves. Great to just see her.

    I saw the Tyson quote the troll posted but that was from earlier this year when Tyson was doing an autobiographical stage show. Is he talking about it again or is the troll just now seeing that quote and trying to start some caca?

    Just saw the Vanity Fair comedy issue(s) 3 covers. Megan Fox made the cover with the “This is 40″ cast…but oddly enough…Ticky’s not on any either of the other 2 covers with folks like Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Jim Carrey, Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld and her new BFF Ben Stiller. Wonder why she was left off. Surely it’s not that unfunny/major suckage problem. Yet another month of Vanity Fair goes by since Ticky was last on their cover. That’s 88 straight issues. Not too surprsingly they haven’t been able to bag a cover interview with Brad since that Ticky cover was followed by the unauthorized underwear cover. Wonder if Graydon Carter still thinks that Ticky cover was worth it…

    @Rose:
    Good morning Rose.
    I did see that interview and it was really great. I saw a few tweets saying Angie said she was quitting acting. SMH, it is amazing how a quote is taken out of context. She never said that. But I guess we are use to this happening. I wonder if Brad has finished shooting. Someone posted a tweet from his stunt guy saying his last day was either Friday/Saturday. So I hope he is done and the family can all get away.
    ===================

    Good Morning Busted

    How are you my dear? I totally agree with you Angies Quote is yet again taken out of context regarding her acting intentions .I haven’t seen the full extent of the interview of Angie and William Hague, for me to make a full judgment on but one thing I can see is that the media as usual has taken Angies comments about reducing her Movie work, to declaration of quitting yet again uhhhh, cannot stand this, why can’t they report it the way its actually said.
    Any way she’s been saying this for many years and still despite the fact she has reduced her work load as far as her movie carer is concerned media still tends to make such a fuss. People are reading too much into “but if I went away tomorrow” sentence in my opinion.
    Angie has been saying this for quite few years and so has Brad especially in recent years regarding reducing their work load. If I recall correctly wasn’t he bombarded with the same retirement questions when he gave an interview to an Australian journalist. Which in reality he didn’t say he said in future he would be winding down some aspects of work to concentrate on perusing other avenues.
    so basically when one says I would be reducing my work dose not in any way or form say I’m quitting does it God forbid Brad & Angie have a life and want to peruse other avenues in life may it be looking after their children, may it be for humanitarian causes, may it be other personal ventures like, directing, producing architecture, housing projects, jewellery, furniture etc. so they are normal human beings who want to branch out to other endeavours in life apart form moviemaking.
    Ironic isn’t it as if no one has done it before have they in this day and age! To put there children before themselves, how very selfish of them lol. How dare they want to enjoy life together shock horror!! I guess their selflessness puts peoples backs up.

    I would speak for my self when I say I am not only a fan of Angie and Brad due to their movie work depending on their box office figures if their movies are a hit or not, I am a fan regardless, my loyalty is undisputable for me, I look at the whole package.
    Here I see a young woman who has a great film carer but also chooses not to only rely upon it alone. She hasn’t got that drive to go after every Oscar baited movies for the sake of getting awards. For she already has her Oscar, SAG, Golden Globe and other numerous awards she doesn’t need to prove to anything to any one, any more.
    She is one of those actresses that has beauty on her side could have gone after every movie role that was offered to her and never would have looked back but she chose wisely. Despite the fact she hasn’t worked year after year to get her résumé full she chose to do far a few in between. Action, drama. Comedy she’s done it all and has been awarded for them.
    She has done her UNHCR work for over 10 years and proved what a force she can be that know she is a Special Envoy of Peace, when she commits she gives a thousand % she gives more than is asked from her.I am a fan of their philanthropy how they have evolved into stronger individuals, how they both have their own sense of individuality. The inner beauty every time trumps their outer beauty for me. I am not saying I don’t love the outer beauty oh man I’m a sucker like every one of a beautiful face & body lol come on guys I am human after all.
    I am a fan of the whole package I am a fan that loves to see this young girl grow into a beautiful human being with elegance & class a women that is leading the way for the young generation in showing what can be achieved. You don’t have to trade on looks as its shelf life is very limited there are things that one can do to make you more beautiful.
    Make It Right has made Brad much more beautiful in my eyes Angelina’s UNHCR work for refugees has made her stand out for me. love the fact the both Brad & Angie are not only committed to each other but also committed to what they stand for; they are putting their family first.

    Apologies Busted for my long winded post didn’t mean to bore the socks off you lol.

    an opinion Says:

    @Passing Through: During his promotion of his Broadway show he said he met Brad and Givens as they were going into her house. In a new interview he is saying that he caught them in bed together.
    Don’t know if the interviewer brought it up or Tyson but there is no question that he is using Brad to promote his show and now a book. But he is also trying to call Givens a tramp and reporters are just laughing is up. Among other things I read that he says about her in his Broadway show. I expect no less from Tyson but I expect more from reporters.

    Rose
    How are you my dear? Please accept my apologies for late reply just been snowed under at work
    So didn’t get ample time to reply back Thanks for your morning shout outs my dear you are sweet. Any way where was I as for our Angie most defiantly looks so beautiful and at ease have you noticed Rose Angie is wearing same dress only different colour from when she hosted the screening of Ewan McGregor’s movie The Impossible, the other evening. It looks like the same shape and the front of it has same design except for being sleeveless.
    She is a frugal girl our Angie I think when she likes one thing she gets two or three of those items in different colours…its like if you like one why not get another lol. I haven’t read all the previous posts yet so don’t know if you have seen Angies New photos in Cambodia dated 23.11.12 depending on if any one has posted them here or not? if not they are at Brangelina forum she looks simply divine, beautiful Rose she has no make up on , no jewellery she’s wearing the same black top she’s worn a million times lol but yet looks so refreshed and relaxed. Her fans are so in awe of her and she’s so laid back with them love it. You have to see them.
