Angelina Jolie Plans To Give Up Acting

1 minute read

Angelina Jolie revealed this week that she plans to give up acting and focus solely on directing.

“I love directing, I’m much happier directing,” she said on the red carpet in Sydney, according to Yahoo News. “I like following a project all the way through. I like spending two years on something and learning about it… I like being pushed mentally to have to learn so much and be a part of every single aspect of a production.”

Jolie directed the World War II drama Unbroken, which will be released the U.S. on December 25.
