Angelina Jolie Will Return to Acting with 'Maleficent 2': 'I Am Now the Breadwinner for the Family'

Angelina Jolie is talking about the new script for the sequel to Maleficent, which she says will be her next film.

“I am now the breadwinner for the family so it’s time [to get back to work],” Angelina laughed while speaking to Deadline. The publication asked her if she would be doing Universal’s Bride of Frankenstein next, but Angelina confirmed that Maleficent will be her next project. (FYI – Angelina has been linked to Bride of Frankenstein for some time, but has never been confirmed for the project.)

“We have been working on the script and this is going to be a really strong sequel,” Angelina added. If you missed it, Angelina previously spoke about her plans to return to acting after a “family situation” this past year.

    Her comments are a play for sympathy and they’re totally dishonest. First off, she did not take a year off. She was filming the Netflix film last year and then spent months in post-production working with an editor. Secondly, her children have a very rich father. She’s not the sole breadwinner. This comment is meant to make people think Brad has no role in his children’s lives, not even financially.

  • No Comment

    Unnecessary sequel. She was okay as Maleficent but the movie itself was fucking boring.

  • suzybel

    Well I guess being the breadwinner means paying for those cooking lessons and the nanny who does cook.

  • TaraTeller

    what a bitch. she acts like Brad no long exists. she’s throwing herself the biggest pity party ever.

  • TaraTeller

    i can’t believe that no one has called her out on the year off lie. she was making this movie. she’s a sick psycho liar.

  • lyric

    😄😄😄 Five comments, all blocked

  • TaraTeller

    no one cares, loon.

  • Rizzo

    Do you want a cookie now, grandma?

  • toastie postie

    😆😆😆

  • TaraTeller

    she needs to eat some bread

  • sandra

    LOL

  • EJ Mac

    So Brad gets back into Hollywood, a place Jolie said she no longer has an interest in. Now, suddenly when Brad is welcomed into Hollywood again, and celebrity’s are making nice comments about him in the media, she, Jolie wants back into Hollywood again. Also she’s the bread winner?? I guess Brad Pitt can no longer feed his family, WTF? I’ve always hated this woman. She’s dark and empty of emotion. She’s selfish and greedy. I haven’t watched a movie of hers since girl interrupted. I was hoping we’d never see her again. 🙄

  • TaraTeller

    Please…this bitch says she going to take time off to take care of her kids for a decade now and never does it. Just like she’s been learning to cook for years. Her true colors are out and it ain’t pretty.

  • Sharis

    So much venom in those comments…

  • TaraTeller

    so much venom in Jolie’s fake accusations against Brad which were all disproven.

  • Hyejeong

    She’s been claiming she’s “learning to cook” for the past 16 years. Not too bright, is she?

  • TaraTeller

    now don’t exaggerate; it’s only been 10-12 years LOL

  • Hyejeong

    LOL

  • Sharis

    I don’t think there’s much sense in engaging into conversation with you, but she didn’t made any…
    Child Services did… but then found him not guilty, which doesn’t meant they couldn’t have nasty, trust-breaking argument that day. They’re going through a crisis that many 10+ years long relationships do, but I hope they will find their way to each other.

    Cheers and Peace.

  • GroundControl500

    These are just nasty trolls who want to assume the worst and have no problem lying and making shite up to fit their personal bias. We still don’t know what happened so it is impossible to judge. But hell women hating on other women. Well that’s a story as old as time.

    Angie’s been the victim of baseless and nasty gossip for a long time. So far all proven wrong.

  • TaraTeller

    Because you can’t dispute that she most certainly did make false accusations against Brad and now she talks like he doesn’t even exit. You can’t rewrite history. She’s trying to rehab her image and it isn’t working

    CFS wasn’t there; someone called them.

    CFS found Brad INNOCENT, there is a difference.

  • GroundControl500

    Blah blah blah. The reality is that they each are the breadwinners for each of their households. Not such a complicated concept to grasp if you try.

    Both Brad and Angie are still actors and as such will probably always keep a hand in acting in addition to their newer pursuits of directing and producing.

    Being a drama queen about the choices of people who are strangers to you is best left to teenyboppers.

  • GroundControl500

    They’re just silly trolls – of the obsessive genre.

  • bella

    I saw this comment, and imo this was Angie’s way of saying she, as a single Mother with 6 kids and a new house, she needed to make more money. There is no way Brad is not paying his fair share of child support, just that Angie cannot depend on Brad to support her, as well.

  • TaraTeller

    are you kidding? these people are worth millions. she doesn’t “need” to work. and no one needs a $25 million dollar house. She is not a “single” mom; those kids have a father who will do anything for them. She’s a manipulative bitch.

  • Sharis

    Also… I’ve read some reports saying that Maleficent 2 is her next project and that she hasn’t committed to the Bride, but none of them had the ‘breadwinner of the family’ quote… I’m not familiar with this Deadline site so I’ve just checked it out and it looks.. sketchy and gossipy. So excuse me if I’m a little dubious about whether she even said that…

  • TaraTeller

    The quote has been on many websites and probably on video. Typical loon doesn’t believe what’s been quoted many times

  • toastie postie

    So jealous! It’s eating up what soul they have.

  • toastie postie

    Could have been misinterpreted – her meaning she is now responsible for the kids 50% and herself 100% – then she still has her charities to support in that mix.

  • bella

    Angie is not your typical “single HW Mother” who would gouge their ex for millions. She’s a strong, independent woman who believes in being fair.
    A $25 million house is not that extravagant for someone with as much money as Angie.

    Do I think Angie needs to work, of course not, but she’s not someone who would be happy sitting on her behind eating bon bons all day.

    Angie is as far from a manipulative bitch. You jentards are all alike, stupid and dimwitted.

  • TaraTeller

    Jentards? What are you? 12 years old? Jennifer has nothing to do with any of this. And calling me names makes you look foolish.

  • toastie postie

    Agree. Being a fair person, she can’t expect him to support her also.

  • bella

    You pathetic jentard, STFU and STHD.

  • TaraTeller

    how cute. all you can respond is with namecalling because everything I wrote is true and you can’t deal with it. poor baby. jolie’s reputation has taken a huge hit and without Brad, Hollywood could care less.

  • bella

    STFU. Thank goodness for the blocking feature. As of this minute,YOU ARE B L O C K E D!!

  • TaraTeller

    all poor bella is having a meltdown. I couldn’t care less if you block me.

  • TaraTeller

    I think Bella here is having a breakdown from realizing St. Angie Ho ain’t a saint anymore.

  • HRH

    .. many people say they hate Angelina because of her fans. The JJ loons really bring people to hate her.

  • TaraTeller

    They are sad pathetic angry people who can’t handle the truth

  • Joel P147

    Your B*tch is looking for sympathy and trying to manipulate the public, do not complain AJ, you need to spend less money on bribery and PR, I think Pitt’s children will be perfectly protected. Let her say thank to Brad Pitt that he bought her a house for 25 million and agreed to pour mud for himself into the interview GQ, but not for her, but for the opportunity to occasionally see children. But such f*cking will not appreciate it.

  • Joel P147

    the house was bought by Pitt, do you really think that this Nutcase will allow herself to once again spend a fringe to live next to Pitt? HaHa, She really is greedy and mercantile, everyone who has dealt with her in charity and movies can confirm this. She says she transfers money to charity? Lie, She was caught in a lie once.

  • TaraTeller

    She’s been caught in lies many many many times. Did Brad really buy that house?

  • Joel P147

    yes

  • TaraTeller

    I can’t find that info any where and I’m sure I believe it.

  • Joel P147

    AJ made every effort to ensure that Hollywood and the public were convinced that she was supportive of Pitt, he gave her a house, but her team says the opposite, specifically, humiliating position for Pitt.You will not read about this anywhere, although from time to time, he gives hints in press, but her PR is greater.

  • LetMeTranslate

    She does have custody of the children since they still follow her everywhere. Plus, Ad Astra isn’t blockbuster material. I would think Disney will pay her more for Maleficent 2. So thus, the breadwinner comment?

  • bella

    TaraTeller is none other than the infamous dimwitted Ariana, aka about a 100 other dimwitted aliases. Heaven help us from the JP haters, they are so very boring.

  • yolly

    Maleficent 2, excited.

  • yolly

    God bless the Jolie Pitt family.
