Angelina Jolie To Give Up Acting To Spend More Time On Charity Work And With Family

Angelina Jolie doubts she will be in the acting limelight for much longer, as she struggles to handle the pressures of bringing up six children with her charity work.

The actress has spoken before about how she would love to focus more of her energy on charities, but said during a Channel 4 interview that she sees helping refugees as being more important than making movies.

She also admitted she wants to be around for her kids when they hit their teenage years.

Speaking as a representative of the UN during the interview, Angelina said: "I think I'm going to have to give up the acting as the kids hit their teenage years anyway because there is going to be too much to manage at home.

"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."

With the eldest of Angelina's six children now aged 11 years old, it might not be too long before she has to make the decision about turning her back on Hollywood.

She also spoke about how she wanted to concentrate on helping refugees in particular as they face so much uncertainty about their futures.

Her partner Brad Pitt shows no sign of slowing down with his acting career yet, as he was back in the UK this week to film more scenes for his upcoming film World War Z.
