LOS ANGELES - One of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood revealed to a British broadcaster that she will give up acting when her children get a little older.
Angelina Jolie was being interviewed with Britain's foreign secretary when she told Channel Four News that when her six children get into their teenage years, she'll leave acting behind.
AJ: (Asked if humanitarian work more rewarding than acting?) "Yes of course."
REP: "All the time?"
REP: "Does that make you think you will give up acting?"
AJ: "I think I'm going to have to give up the acting as the kids hit the teenage years anyway, too much to manage at home, 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."
REP: "You are speaking in the past tense there, as if from now on..."
AJ: "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 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."
Jolie is 37 years old and her oldest son is Maddox - who is 11. Then Pax is 8 and Zahara is 7. She is followed by 6-year-old Shiloh and 4year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
Jolie is a special envoy for the United Nations and was speaking with Britain's foreign secretary about war-zone sexual assault.
