Angelina Jolie loves motherhood more than her job

Angelina Jolie is an Oscar-winner and also one of the highest paid actresses in the world.

Yet, in an interview with the Financial Times, the 36-year-old actress admitted that she no longer loves her job as much as she used to.

“I’ve never not been grateful to be an actor,” she told the newspaper. “But I think when I was younger I needed [acting] more. I was trying to question things in life so you find these characters that help you find things and grow.”

“I’m older and I know who I am,” she continued, “and I’m less interested in the character helping me answer something… than in being able to answer it for myself, as a woman, as an adult, with my family.”

The mother of six says it’s another part of her life that makes her happy: “I don’t love [acting] as much as I did]. I love being a mom.”

Angelina’s upcoming film In the Land of Blood and Honey marks her directorial debut. The movie, which sparked an international firestorm, is a love story set during the Bosnian War.

“I prefer [being behind the camera] to acting,” she says. “I think I’ve learnt something from all of [the directors I've worked with] — even the ones I didn’t like… I also learned a lot from Clint Eastwood about how to appreciate the members of the crew, empowering them to do their job.”

However, Jolie admits that she doesn’t plan to work in the movie industry for the rest of her life.

“As Brad and I get older we’re going to do fewer films. I’ve been working for a long time, he’s been working for a long time,” she says. “We’ve had a nice run and I don’t want to be doing this our whole lives. There are a lot of other things to do.”
