It's true, Angelina appears ready to quit acting to instead be a stay-at-home mother.
Angelina, who is now 37-years old, and who has six children with 48-year-old Brad Pitt, has said she wants to spend more time doing charity work instead of being paid millions for her acting as a Hollywood star. Last evening, while speaking in her role as UN special envoy about a mission to help rape victims in war torn Syria, Angelina commented, “I think I’m going to have to give up the acting as the kids hit the teenage years anyway because there is going to be too much to manage at home."
MTV News has also reported on Angelina's desire to change roles to become a stay-at- home mother and humanitarian instead of an actress in an article today, Dec. 2, 2012, Angelina Jolie: 'I Will Give Up Acting'. She has said, "I’ve enjoyed being an actress and I’m so grateful for the job. I’ve had great experiences and I have even been able to tell stories that matter... I wake up in the morning as a mum and I turn on the news like everybody else and see what’s happening in the world. I want to be a part of the world in a positive way.” Angelina is a really very talented and clearly very beautiful woman in many ways, who will always have a lot to offer us all regardless of what she decides to do with her life.
