Angelina Jolie Addresses Retirement Rumors

share on:

In an interview posted yesterday with Variety, when asked about reports that she plans to retire from the acting portion of showbiz, Angelina Jolie says ” I’m about to direct something with Brad and myself in fact.”
By the Sea, starring Jolie and real-life hubby Brad Pitt as a troubled married couple, has already started shooting in Malta, so that’s one movie down for the Oscar winner already!
“I’m happier when I get to put a camera on another actor and watch them do great work,” she added.
Her second directorial effort, Unbroken, based on Laura Hillenbrand’s book about Olympian turned POW and World War II hero Louis Zamperini, opens wide on Christmas Day.
And it’s her very yen for passion projects like this one that got the film made in the first place, according to Zamperini’s children, who also got to know Jolie as she bonded with their dad before he passed away in July at the age of 97.
“With her star power and her unbelievable focus, she got this film on the fast track,” Louis’ son Luke told Variety. Added his sister, Cynthia Garris: Jolie “swooped in like an angel.”
