Angelina Jolie CONFESSES ‘change’ in her family situation with Brad Pitt has restricted her from career goals
Before her separation from Brad Pitt in September 2016, Angelina Jolie had slowly shifted focus from acting to directing, which was her passion. Whether it be the romantic drama By the Sea; which reunited her and Brad on-screen, years after first starring in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, or even the biographical First They Killed My Father, Angelina was carving her niche as a filmmaker as well. However, since then, we’ve seen Jolie take a break from direction and delve into more acting projects.
Revealing the reason for the same in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly; to promote her upcoming release Those Who Wish Me Dead, Angelina disclosed, “I love directing, but I had a change in my family situation that’s not made it possible for me to direct for a few years.” The 45-year-old actress elaborated that she needed to just “do shorter jobs and be home more” for her and Pitt’s six children – Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12. Hence, this meant going back to doing a few acting jobs which is “really the truth” behind the same.
