“It’s [acting] going to be taking more of a back seat. I’ve had a wonderful career and I’m going to be taking all of the opportunities I’ve had to tell stories and work for as long as I have. I’m sure there’ll be a few more films, but I’m happy I’m able to be selective and have fun with characters like this. I would like to focus more on writing and directing, and above all I would like to focus more on my work with the UN.”
--Angelina Jolie explains the trajectory she plans for her career to take, also proves why she is one of the most wonderful ladies in the game.
It's just that she's so lovely, you guys. And it might make us really sad that we won't get to see her beautiful angel face so much in movies, but like Mariah Carey said, "spread your wings and prepare to fly for you have become a butterfly, fly abandonedly into the sun." Angelina is that butterfly, and we must allow her to spread her wings, for that is what she was truly meant to do. Haven't you ever heard the saying "wild horses run unbridled or their spirit dies" (also Mariah Carey)?
Besides, we really can't fault her for wanting to do more work with the UN. Also, you know we're still going to see her being amazing on Brad Pitt's red carpets. It's going to be fine, guys. We're going to be OK.
