Angelina Jolie revealed in an interview with Parade magazine that she and partner Brad Pitt plan to quit acting in a few years to focus on their family.
On the heels of a report stating that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are planning to adopt an orphan boy from the Czech Republic, comes a new report claiming that the couple is planning to quit Hollywood in order to focus on their children.
Jolie has, in an interview with Parade magazine, hinted plan to quit acting career for a life of traveling, parenthood and normal living. "Brad and I have a lot of kids, and we want to have more. And they demand a lot of time. It takes a lot just to get all of them fed and clothed and out the door to different schools on time", the actress said. "It's fun and we love it. But you can't balance everything. I think both of us only plan to work for a few more years. We'll try to just stop sooner or later, so we can be at home and travel, and just live."
Being asked to comment on critics who have slammed her decision to adopt children from different countries, Jolie wisely replied, "I feel like I am getting such a great education. Whether people's thoughts about my family are positive or negative, at the end of the day, I get to come home to these four little people who are the greatest things in the world."
In related news, Jolie has just been honored for her philanthropic work by joining the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), an influential and independent, nonpartisan foreign policy membership organization.
