Academy award winner actress and director, Angelia Jolie, who is ready with her next directorial venture, says she might quit acting for direction. According to a report by Times of India, she told the Sydney Morning Herald, "I'll do a few more , but I'll be happy to let that all go at some point.”

 

Angelina Jolie is considered to be one of the highest paid actresses and one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and walked the red carpet in Sydney with her actor husband Brad Pitt at the premiere of her movie, "Unbroken". The movie is a World War II epic and filmed in Australia. This is her second movie as a director after “In the Land of Blood and Honey", which garnered much critical acclaim.

 

Jolie stated: "I love directing, I'm much happier directing… 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."

The actress added, "unless I'm sure there's a role or something I should do or really means something to me, I'd rather be spending my time telling stories from behind the camera". She also clarifies that she doesn’t dislike actors or acting but prefers if the spotlight is on someone else and not her.

 

Her next directorial venture staring her husband Brad Pitt and herself is titled “By the sea”. She reveals that she found directing herself extremely difficult and her husband Pitt, challenging. She added, "But it was also a great pleasure for us both to bust out of our comfort zones and just get back to being actors who work and fight through scenes and figure it out, and not be safe and not be sure and try and push."
