We’ve always made our readers happy by being the bearers of good news to them, but occasionally our celebrity news stories do strike a chord of sadness in the hearts of our readers. Today we bring to you another such piece of heartbreaking news; heartbreaking for the fans of Angelina Jolie.
Angelina Jolie revealed in an interview with UK’s Channel 4 News that she has decided to call it a day to her profession and quit acting. She also spoke to the Daily Mirror saying that she’s going to quit acting to be a stay at home mother. Although she has hinted quitting acting in the past, Angelina claims that this time it’s for real.
This news of ‘Angelina Jolie Quits Acting’ comes as a shocker to the many of Angelina’s fans. The thrill of looking forward to her movies will no longer be felt.
Brad Pitt dropped a bomb on all his fans earlier this year stating that three years down the line he would be quitting acting for good, so that he could expand his family of six children with Jolie and focus on parenting by being there to bring up his children.
Angelina Jolie, too, seems to be following in the footsteps of her partner, who she is soon slated to marry, after getting engaged earlier this year and she now wants to put a “PITT” stop to her career and focus on raising her children. Angelina says that once her kids enter the teenager phase, there is going to be lots that she will have to manage at home with her half a dozen brood. And she says that she wants to be there for her children and raise them to live productive lives.
Another reason for her decision to quit acting is to get more time do charity work. She stated that when she wakes up every morning, she feels disheartened to see what’s happening in the world and she wants to make a change with her humanitarian work.
As a United Nations special envoy, Angelina has done a lot of charity work in the past and has been a ray of hope to people and children in developing countries. She prefers reaching out to humanity instead of being paid millions in Hollywood.
The star claims that although she is grateful for all that acting has given her ever since she started off in the field at a young age; she feels that she will not be able to focus on her family and humanity if she doesn’t give up her profession.
So we guess that our loss and Hollywood’s loss is quite a gain for Angelina’s children Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne as well as for the people in the underdeveloped countries. Although, Angelina Jolie quits acting, the silver lining in this dark grey cloud is that she will still be open to doing an occasional film as and when a role that matters comes along.
