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.

    @carry :D: Carry, don’t let me stop you from writing a long ass comment about Ticky, Ticky. No that I said the word Ticky, do your thing and call me a stu.Id bi.CH as you generally do. Now knock yourself out.

  • well

    @Passing Through:
    : So agree. You forgot to add spending four months driving across Spain for a cooking show in 2007 or 2008 while her kids were in NY and London. Jared posted pics of the kids She could have been a lead in a movie with the same amount of time she spend doing that show.

    I’m watching The View and the topic is Angie retiring when the kids become teens.He** has frozen over because Elizabeth,Barbara even guest Co host Jennifer McCarthy agreed with the idea.BTW I know Angie didn’t say she was retiring but that was the Hot Topic .

    @Rose yes!! carry ed away…personally, i think the poor child is dyslexic on top of being playing deaf& dumb…thats the only explaination i have for her not being able to comprehend when people tell her to get a dictionary! instead of investing her time trying to stop people from talking about Maniston and going ballistic, she might want to do a little more studying…poor thing, just wasting money and never will get her online degree..

    @Ssshhii_baby:#314, hi Shi, Noticed she said it was alright to talk about Goop, but don’t we dear mention Ticky. That word ticky just sends her over the deep edge every time. I’m wondering why? Her love must be very strong for poor Ticky.

    Hi Jaye my dear believe me by the time I finished I didn’t feel bright eyed & bushy tailed lol…buy the way seems my posting back to fellow fans has irked the resident trolls lol, what’s the point of me even writing don’t bother trolls reading my posts & commenting back and what do they do they answer back . It’s like pair of dogs chasing their own tails.
    Any way enough of that how’s the writing going and don’t laugh when I say I’m pre-booked for your first signing your doing it and I’m coming ok like it or lump it like my mother says to me ( always had a battle eating my greens) when young lol.
    On the Oscar talk you are spot on about many talented actors & actresses not getting the recognition that they so rightly deserved at the time shame isn’t it. But I guess the studio politics is still going at this day n age you know it’s so obvious with some people, but it dosnt take away the fact the obvious talent that those who were un-regognised people in my opinion. Also those who are not palyers you can see are respected by everyone.

    Hi PT I know you have already seen this but like you said Ticky is the comedy gift that keeps on giving. I guess the guy in the photo didn’t get the memo that he has the worlds Dirtbag before his very eyes.
    See how famous she is people are clamouring for her attention just see the reaction of this guy it says it all. And he’s digging deep.

    by the way every photo tells a story have you seen th shifty way Squiggy & Ticky are looking out for their photographer, and I guess Squiggy hasn’t changed one bit still opening the door for himself leaving the hag to do her own opening. Lol.

    No time to read much.

    @PT.. thanks for your posts.. always a pleasure.

    I think KTS will be around a long time. Film peeps will be talking about it, and Brad should be very proud of his film list. extremely impressive.

    I think carry needs a job or a hobby outside of JJ.. the constant spamming is a bit scary. But then when you are pretending be a different person it must get hard. The language in the post have changed on occasion. So anyone can figure that one out.

    I see Jared is going to milk it big time with Taylor Swift and that One Direction puppy with not one but two top headliners just in case their teeny bopper fans miss it lol by the way what example are you setting She is a 22 year old going after young & old he is going after any thing that has a pulse are these 2 the young generations rols models just asking as you seem to be obsessed.
    /
    As Bloaters daily morning, afternoon & evening ventures are being broadcasted know the next question is what’s left? Are we also going to see his bed time pursuits as well? As that seems to be only thing left to document. We have seen where he gets his coffee/breakfast; where he gets his lunch, where he dines, where he socializes, who he’s banging at the moment so might as well get the next photo of him in bed.
    /
    by the way jared why you sullied angie thread by putting a new thread today from people who even mention her name ,whats the point ?
    when its her new you dont report it properly when some one mentions her name you put that up as new thread ..you already tried it on brads thread with the saturday live skit and know this don’t you even read the fans comments ? stick to your main person

    Again, she gave the interview because of the initiative to stop war atrocities, for them to either NOT mention that fact, or choose to solely pick up on that tired domestic refrain of the lazy interviewer’s questions – is blatant sabatoge of what she’s about and also disrespectful of the subject matter.
    .
    I mean does someone literally bring these items to people who are supposedly journalists, mothers and world citizens – and say, ‘Hey, you know Angelina Jolie is starting an initiative to stop war rape and atrocities against women and children, but towards the end of the piece, Jolie is asked about ‘life w/ Brad,’ and she muses about what she may do when the “kids,” are teens in a decade or so….okay so YEAH, let’s DROP the systemic raping of children and women during wartime, and discuss Angelina’s ‘retirement,’ that she THINKS she might do a decade from now — don’t even bring that war rape thing up. Just make it look like, Jolie’s held a press con, to announce what she may do when her kids are teens, because she thinks everyone is sitting on the edge of their seats…it’ll make her haters even more rage-y!”

    I don’t think women can have it all. Not by any means. However…Putrid saying that crap like she’s a stay-at-home mom who rarely gets to leave the house and is there every day for her kids making them breakfast, picking them up from school, wiping their noses when they have colds, putting them to bed everynight and reading them stories, etc., is bullcaca. I see my dentist more often than she sees her kids. I sometimes see her pix 3-4 times a week going somewhere without her kids or her husband and she’s whining like she’s barely had time to comb her hair and brush her teeth. Just STFU and stop frontin’. She’s got multiple nannies just like every other rich person with more than 1 kid. She’s as tiresome and fake as Ticky is. At least Ticky is good for a laugh. All Putrid is is irritating. O. M. G. I just paid Ticky a backhanded compliment! LOL!

    Sheesh. Now BBT is blabbering about going to Angie’s wedding if he’s invited. Why can’t their mutual multiple exes just STFU and go away?

  • an opinion

    @CLINIQUA: OT Brandi is no better than Ticky. She plays the victim than attacks. She not saying this to protect her boys. She likes attacking Leanne probably because Leanne is famous and it gets her attention.. Brandi said her ex had a couple of affairs before he met Leanne. Leanne is the one he finally left her for.

    12YAS is being distributed by New Regency – and they’re also the co-finacier as well. Typically, with an indie, if a financier is also a distributor they will pick up the distribution rights at the the time they make the financing deal. Frankly when you’re making an indie you’re likely to sell the rights to the distributor who’ll pay you the most for the rights to distribute or gives you the largest share of potential profits. In Plan B’s case they’re repped by CAA for their financing and domestic distribution deals. Distributors make their P&A commitment at the time they pick up a film. That’s one way they can get an edge over the competition. It’s basically – we’ll give you X amount of dollars for the right to distribute, commit X amount to P&A and agree to some kinf of split on ticket sales, ie, either all profts after distributor’s fees are recouped or the distributor gets a flat percentage regardless of whether they recoup their expenses. Obviously not many distributors are going to agree to that last deal.

    Except for their names, the trolls don’t exist for me. Most times their comments are thumbed down and i don’t see them, so I don’t have a clue what they are talking about. All I know is from the fans comments, the troll haven’t changed one bit or had anything interesting to say since they parked their a.sses here. They won’t leave because that would be a defeat for them, they much rather be ridiculed day in and day out. Sick, eh?

    As for the writing, I’m still editing the first story, got about a hundred pages to go, then I’ll pick up the third story and finish it before I start anything else. I’m giving myself a goal of the end of the year, that’s when I first started writing these three.

    @an opinion:

    Well see, re the couple of affairs Brandi says Eddie had pre Leanne, she’s honest. LOL Eddie C is a twat. …and the rumors of them being in trouble have merit – especially if Leanne is spending 12 hrs a day on the john. That can be so damaging to the body. I can see why Glanville would be worried about her sons, I think she’s calling it correct — Leanne wants Eddie to think she’s a great ‘bonus mom,’ but I think a lot of her motivation is to oneup Brandi. It seems she’s been imitating her since they got together. Almost like she’s just as obsessed with Brandi.

    ITA, Brandi’s an idiot. You seen her lately? She’s skinny as a rail, too, and wasn’t when she got the RHOBH gig. Pot talking about the kettle and she just sounds jealous and bitter. Leann’s an idiot, too, but at least she’s famous for singing and not just because her husband cheated on her and dumped her for a woman worth 100X more money then HE has. Brandi’s basically getting child support on Leann’s dime so she needs to STFU. When Leann and Eddie finally break up then Brandi’s gonna be broke ass again.

    ROTFLMAO at OuttaTouch. On thei cover they claim Ticky is preggers – just like Duchess Kate! But…another fake Ticky-pregnancy story isn’t the funny part. They also have a story that Gavin Rossdale is hittin’ it with the nanny. In case you missed it – he was photographed hiking with the nanny and the boys a few days back. The photos were taken from behind and he hand his hand low on her back, just below here backpack and right above her butt. Everybody was it was a tad too familiar and very intimate and begain speculating that he was doing the nanny behind Gwen’s back. Well, OuttaTouch has a story on it and says -
    .
    “She’s pretty, blond — and younger than Gwen,” says an insider close to the couple. Another source reveals that the nanny has been in the picture for at least two years: “She showed up to one of the Bush front man’s shows in 2011 with the kids. I did think it was kind of weird she would be there supporting him instead of his wife.
    .
    The reason this is hilarious is because the very next day the girl was revealed to be Gavin’s SISTER Soraya or something like that. If you look at her face – she looks like Gavin. The thing is – this info was out long before OuttaTouch went to press. Since I haven’t seen the full story I don’t know if they reveal in the story that it’s actually his sister, but how typical of this bottom-feeding rag to be misleading about something that’s already been shot down. And this is with the ex-Peep’s employee at the helm. So much more for trying to bring the rag over into Peeps’ ass kissing territory.

    sorry, PT- I love Fringe (& DC when I was a kid), so I guess Josh Jackson is the 1st Josh I think of! He & Diane seem like a very nice couple. I really like what she did in IB & she was good in Troy (although that role was a bit annoying, as was OB’s). Speaking of annoying, THANK YOU for the facts on fishy paltrow- she is such a giant hypocrite. Rose- good call on how Angie always credits Brad for being so supportive- it’s a big contrast when fishy BRAGS about her relationship- sound like Chris is away more than he is there- speaks volumes!

  • Angie Inspires

    PT- I’m not sure where/when that pic of JJ & DK was taken, but the pic of Brad & Angie was at PGAs in Jan 2012. Angie has worn slit dresses for years & years- I remember there was a TR red carpet where she had one on. Just like this jj post is based on shaky info, the leg & the slit dress drama was a made-up “issue”- so very transparent. Being a JP fan has made me a much more “aware” reader of “news” stories- so many lies! BTW- I hope this post goes through- usually I can only do 1 or 2 & then I can’t post for weeks! Of course, the troll always seems to get through…

    Exclusive: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pick Out Neil Lane Wedding Rings

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are one step closer to saying “I do!”

    In Touch has exclusively learned that on Nov. 27, a stylist for the actress picked up wedding rings from Neil Lane jewelers for the couple.

    Known for being notoriously shy about discussing his private life, Brad revealed just the day before purchasing the wedding bands, “It’ll be soon — the time is right.”

    Exchanging vows seems to be low on the priority list for the power couple, who have been filming two movies, renovating their home in France, jetting across the globe on goodwill missions, shooting a perfume commercial, and taking care of their six children.

    Brad says the celebration will be “simple” and “just family.”

    @Passing Through:

    I just wanted to pop in and thank you for your answer. Forgive me for being a little slow, but does that mean that the agency representing the producers of the film , or is it the agency representing the exec. producers (the folks doing the financing) which sell the rights to distribute/market the film?

    And this begs my next question. Everyone in Hollywood know what a thug and self-centered pig Harvey is, so why would you sell distribution rights to him. In the end, he will advance HIS agenda.

    I just hope Andrew comes out okay and continues to make films. And the universe deals with Harvey.

    @FWIW: In touch is out of touch. Brad would never buy a wedding band from Neil Lane. He designs his jewelry with his personal jeweler RP.
